5 Great Reasons To Reconsider Wood For Your House

Real Estate,International Property,Home Improvement
Home is where we spend a large portion of our lives, it is critical to consider the safety of that environment when building a new home. They say that house made of wood is the most popular and traditional method of building a home. And it is more comfortable because it is very relaxing and soothing to the eye. It is also cheaper than concrete cement. But some also say that it's better to have a house made of concrete cement so that you will not have a problem with pests but more expensive than wood. House made of wood are one of the popular dream houses of many home owners just like in the movies or the mountain cabins, where they can lie down on the bed and read books in silence. Houses made of woods, built in accordance with our modern technologies are highly reliable and durable. Here are some of the great reasons to reconsider wood for your house.

Wood homes are more comfortable to stay

Most home owners prefer to have a house made if wood because for them houses made of wood are relatively inexpensive and are really more comfortable, the atmosphere is different and more relaxing and also they look better. Wood also is a good insulator, so it can help keep your home warm on chilly nights. Wood is a breathable substance it can take on humidity or tolerate drier air within limits without structural damage.

Wood Homes Are Cheap to Build

Traditional stick-built homes are builder favorites because they’re cheaper and more economical to construct than block homes. Wood homes cost about 5 percent less to construct than concrete homes. And according to reports that wood homes built nowadays have a lifespan of 80 to 100 years or longer when well-maintained; thus, they not only are economical but long-lasting.

Wood Homes Are Environmentally Friendly The construction of Wooden Homes is pollution free and leaves behind no solid or liquid waste associated with brick and mortar construction. The wood is the only construction material that is a renewable resource. Steel and iron, two other building materials, are nonrenewable resources, so their use for building houses forever diminishes their supply. Contractors preferring to use renewable resources have increased their use of wood for home construction. Wooden homes consume very little energy to cool during summers and heat during winters, leading to high energy efficiency and significant financial savings. Wood Homes Provide Design Flexibility When the home design uses wood, a contractor or architect can develop his plans even at the building site. He can easily remodel the floor plans, number of rooms, interior space and overall presentation. Besides, wood is a slimmer building material than concrete, which means a home of the same conditions provides as much as 10 percent more living space. Wood is lightweight, so it’s pretty easy to work with, and because it’s so familiar, most construction workers know how. Plus, it’s available at any home improvement store or lumber yard. Wood homes are Healthy & Natural Wooden Homes are very healthy for its inhabitants as wood does not emit electrostatic charge and the log walls regulate humidity and temperature inside. The breathing property of wood makes them especially healthy for allergic people. It is guaranteed that warm and natural wood color definitely influences state of mind, soothes nervous system and creates friendly conditions for recreation.

But like any building material, wood isn’t perfect. Termites love to destroy it. So wood has to be chemically treated to resist the pests. In addition, wood can expand and contract, or even warp and twist, in extreme weather. Wood is exposed to mold and fungus problems if the humidity levels remain too high. But all of this can be prevented to happen if we know how to take good care and maintain our wooden homes.
