Why is wood an ideal building material?
Wood construction is experiencing a great boom in recent years, whether in projects for structural use, carpentry or for decorative use in homes, restaurants, hotels, offices, etc. More and more architecture projects decide to use wood as a construction material due to its advantages over other hegemonic materials such as concrete, steel or other synthetic products: it is natural, renewable, recyclable and requires very little energy to transform.
If we talk about innovation and technology, wooden products have undergone a notable development in recent years in terms of performance and qualities, in such a way that wooden architecture is, without a doubt, the material of the s. XXI, especially in sustainable construction. Proof of this innovation, we can find Lunawood thermowood, which is subjected to a heat treatment that modifies its performance to make it more resistant to the elements.
In this sense, wood construction systems, both those with heavy framework (with solid wood from large squares or composite structural products) and light (with structural sawn wood) as well as lower partitions, allow to easily make new distributions of interior spaces or incorporate new additions.
In addition, construction with wood does not generate dust, is lighter and is dry (you do not have to wait for the products to set so that the other trades can enter the works. A new model of construction that is sustainable, green, with low CO2 emissions and with energy efficiency.
On the other hand, wood creates healthy environments thanks to the fact that it is a harmless material that regulates the humidity of the environment: when there is excess humidity it absorbs it and when there is dryness it releases it. In fact, there is a Finnish saying that says: "when doctors do not discover your disease, go live in a wooden house", proof of these benefits of wood is that the furniture or floors preferred in the home are made of natural wood or constructed from wooden boards such as plywood.
