Timber is the perfect example of an environmentally sustainable product; it is biodegradable and carries the lowest carbon footprint of any comparable building material. As a construction material, timber has a number of advantages over the alternatives. Firstly, it is a natural resource, meaning it's readily available and economically feasible. It is also remarkably strong in relation to its weight, and it provides good insulation from the cold. Timber is highly versatile, in the fact that it can also be machined and fabricated into all manner of shapes and sizes to fit practically any construction need. With the use of correctly managed forests, timber represents an excellent way of creating a more sustainable construction industry.
Plywood is a versatile building material made from thin layers of wood veneer glued together. It is a very durable material that provides an excellent foundation for most construction needs. These layers that make up the plywood are then glued together at alternating right angles. Giving it an impressive strength and durability that is consistent across the entire length of the board. Plywood and other sheet materials have a variety of building uses, and because they are derived from sustainable sources, they won't impact the environment as much as other alternatives.
MDF is one of today’s most utilised interior building materials, with MDF Skirting and Architraves offering a number of functional, and aesthetic benefits to any construction. It's easy to install and widely-available pre-primed. It is also resistant to fluctuations in heat and humidity meaning it's less likely to experience cracking and warping. MDF mouldings are also made from a high percentage of recycled wood materials making it a smarter, more sustainable material to add that decorative touch.
Fencing, Decking and other landscaping features can add a huge amount to any construction. Timber fencing is a fantastic choice for properties of all shapes and sizes – it not only offers aesthetic appeal but is cost effective, easy to install and relatively easy to repair. Both Decking and other landscaping features provide a natural, durable and attractive means of enhancing the outside of any construction, and because they are all sourced from sustainable means the impact on the environment is minimal.
