ADVANTAGES WHEN BUILDING WITH WOOD

SUSTAINABLE, DURABLE, QUICKLY IMPLEMENTED: THE ADVANTAGES OF MODERN TIMBER CONSTRUCTION
1. Thanks to the renewable raw material, you build sustainably
2. Wood ensures a relaxed, feel-good atmosphere – and low heating costs
3. Your timber construction project can be realized promptly and inexpensively
4. Wood construction is durable
Modern timber construction is much more than just a trend. For more than a decade, the number of builders who choose timber construction projects has been increasing steadily. In 2018 alone, the construction of more than 225,000 new wooden buildings was approved nationwide, including a whopping 199,060 residential buildings.
What defines modern timber construction? It is practical, resistant and extremely versatile.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF TIMBER CONSTRUCTION?
Wood is light but at the same time, very strong and solid material. This not only opens up a multitude of design options for timber construction but also enables the addition of buildings with relatively weak structures and the development of building ground with soil conditions for which other types of construction would simply be too difficult. But why are these not all reasons why you can enjoy a wooden building for a long time? Very easily …
1. Thanks to the renewable raw material, you build sustainably

It takes many years before a tree has reached the correct height and its trunk has a sufficient diameter to be suitable for processing in timber construction. During this “production period”, wood gives back more to its environment than it needs for its growth: it continuously filters harmful CO2 from the air and instead enriches it with fresh oxygen. This contribution to the carbon footprint is so great that even after all processing steps have been completed, each wooden component has wiped out more greenhouse gases than it has produced. The CO2 remains bound until the wood is burned. In addition, the waste from timber construction is biodegradable: what is not used in production can be returned to the natural cycle or used as dismantled construction objects. For example, waste from timber construction is often burned – which makes it possible to use it to generate heat at the same time. Since wood always benefits people and the environment from the first moment of production to its final disposal, the ecological building relies on this most sustainable of all building materials.
2. Wood ensures a relaxed, feel-good atmosphere – and low heating costs

Wood looks as comfortable as it is valuable. Especially in the living area, it gives the rooms a special comfort. This is not only due to the natural look but also to the special properties of the building material. Wood heats up very slowly, so it keeps the heat outside in summer and the warmth in the house in winter. The wood construction not only ensures a relaxed feeling of living and working, but also helps to reduce your heating costs permanently. If you want to expand this factor further, there is nothing standing in the way of choosing an energy-efficient house made of wood: in fact, the vast majority of passive houses in Germany are already built with wood.
3. Your timber construction project can be realized promptly and inexpensively
The easy availability and low weight of wood are of particular advantage for prefabricated buildings. Larger wooden components can also be prefabricated precisely, transported as a whole and assembled on-site in a very short time. The construction is progressing quickly and on schedule. This benefits not only builders who soon want to move into their own home, but also everyone whose construction site is on a busy street or is difficult to access. If you rely on thorough planning and prefabrication instead of months of work, which are associated with special permits and high personnel costs, the implementation of your construction project often requires only a few days. At the same time, this acceleration of the process also helps to reduce construction costs:
4. Wood construction is durable

The number of well-preserved half-timbered houses in German cities alone indicates how long high-quality timber construction can easily withstand the weather and the small and large requirements of everyday life. Over many decades and even slightly over a century, it has retained its original shape and strength. In terms of quality and durability, modern timber construction is in no way inferior to conventional designs. In the long term, it even offers a striking advantage: timber construction is easy to repair, and any extensions can be carried out with little effort and correspondingly low costs. In many cases, renovation work can even be carried out so quickly and selectively that you can use your property almost unrestrictedly even during repair or renovation.

The best advice for all your timber construction projects is offered by the craftsmen of a qualified carpentry company. In order to incorporate your ideas and wishes into the planning as precisely as possible, you should always attach great importance to personal consultations and if possible, also make an appointment on-site.
