Timber has become a material of choice these days for construction because of its amazing strengths and properties. Timber has many advantages over other building materials. A timber cladding gives a very attractive and durable external finish that follows the 3Rs for nature that is, it is recyclable, renewable, reusable and also is biodegradable containing much less embodied energy.
- Naturally occurring
Timber is one of the few natural building materials which makes it less toxic and does not release chemical vapour into the air.
Timber is continually being grown in forests making it a renewable resource.
- Low production energy
Timber has the lowest embodied energy when compared to other building materials because it doesn’t take a lot of energy to convert a tree into timber.
- Helpful in storing carbon
Timber uses up the carbon which otherwise would have been increasing the greenhouse effect because as long it is in the building, the carbon is being stored there.
Timber is a natural insulator therefore when used in windows, doors and floors, it can help decrease energy consumption.
- Easily available and easy to work with
Timber is milled all over Australia and is therefore readily available. It is a very versatile product and is easy to install and work with.
