Engineered Wood for Your Floors

Engineered wood is a versatile and sustainable material boosting the performance of a building. Manufacturing engineered wood takes longer as it needs more processing times. It has more ecological and technical advantages too. The engineered wood costs less and performs better than solid wood. The manufacturing process includes the use of veneers, wood and reconstructing it using resins.

Plywood, Glulam, Cross-laminated timber, Aspenit or Oriented Strand Board are the different types of engineered wood products. Plywood and Glulam were commonly used earlier. Being less vulnerable to temperature and humidity changes making them favourites as flooring for bathrooms and laundry rooms.

Go Green and Go Home

Living in a wooden house has many benefits to be considered. And the most important one is its sustainability. Given the lack of natural resources in today’s day and age, a wooden house is the most viable option out there.

The style of a wooden house is unique; it has an earthy, yet aesthetic look. Compared to brick houses, wooden houses are faster and cheaper to build, in that they do not require a deep foundation, nor do they need plastering or tiling. Maintenance also isn’t too difficult a task. Moreover, since wood provides good insulation, your house remains warm and toasty without any overhead heating costs.

Furthermore, a wooden house is a good investment option as it has a higher lifespan and appraisal value and will be super-profitable if at all you decide to sell it.
