Timber is still more relevant today than many of the other building material available. Whatever industry you work in, finding the right kind of timber supplies is important. From ensuring that your timber is up to the job, to making sure that it has come from ethical sources, there is a lot to consider.
So why in an age of manufactured materials are people still turning to timber as the material of choice for their building projects? Well there are a number factors.
Simple to work with – Timber is an extremely versatile material, durable, robust and easy to shape. Whether you are working indoors or outdoors, adding fixtures or fittings, or even constructing the support for the structure itself. Your timber supplies are suitable for a number of applications, and can be used in just about any way you need.
Aesthetically pleasing – As a natural material, timber has a distinct look and finish. Buildings made of timber are generally more visually striking and due to the way in which timber can be manipulated, it is a great material for architects to design with. Where concrete, brick or stone can look dull and boring, wood always looks vibrant and clean. Not only do timber buildings look great in the summer, but they can also be extremely cosy in the winter. Which brings us nicely to…
Great insulating properties – As a natural insulator, wood is great at keeping the warmth in and the cold out. Amongst its other benefits, wood can absorb and release moisture, ensuring a healthier living environment.
Extremely eco-friendly – We all know that trees can absorb carbon, and believe it or not, this is a property that timber doesn’t loose. When compared to other building materials, it doesn’t take an awful lot of energy to turn trees in to timber supplies, meaning that timber is one of the most environmentally friendly materials. What is more timber supplies can be recycled and when farmed responsibly, they are an ever renewable natural material.
