benefits of wood
Wood is a fantastic building material, one whose uses are so varied and so infinite that it can be used to realize any project. And in addition to its great flexibility to offer unique customizations to your home, wood has excellent biological advantages as a renewable resource.
Strong and Stable
Wood is a high-performance material possessing an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, great load-bearing capacity, and good insulation properties. It's easy to machine and transform into virtually any shape, and through the use of high-quality stains, can be made to appear in harmony with its surroundings in any location. Thermally, wood has air-filled cells through which heat and cold are conducted noticeable less than in the case of other construction materials. This means that in winter the cold does not enter, and in the summer the heat remains outside. As far as stability goes, today's modern wood processers use only properly kiln-dried lumber, which minimizes any deformation as the wood performs in its environment. Combined with a high-quality stain, seal, and topcoat system, wood performs beautifully both inside and outside the home.
Building for the Future
Wood meets the great expectations that clients nowadays have in regards to aesthetics, creative uses, healthy living, ecology, and cost effectiveness. Wood is a naturally renewable primary resource, one that while growing removes large quantities of CO2 from the atmosphere and stores it in the form of harmless carbon. Timber logging in domestic forests has been carried out for more than 250 years according to the principle of sustainability, meaning that the amount of harvested timber is never more than what is allowed to grow for the next generation. These responsible, well-managed forests (as any major wood processer, including Sun Mountain, uses exclusively), give great assurance and peace of mind for the well-being of the environment, at a price that's also friendly on the wallet.
Wood offers such a pleasing indoor temperature and ambiance that one instantly feels at ease in a room with wood features. Flooring is comfortable to the feet both in winter and in summer; doors open with a warm welcome to the hospitality inside, and moldings provide just the right accent to the home's decor to bring each room of the house together into one great whole. Wood is always just the right touch, and rooms with wood always leave the visitor with just the right touch also.
