The Increasing Popularity of Composite Timber
Real timber has been around for the longest time. It has been the primary building material used by man ever since it learned how to build things. Since the prehistoric times, wood has always been the top choice for building shelters and other kinds of structures. Apart from being resistant, this amazing material is very easy to work with, offers good insulation, and is found almost everywhere. As time passed by, many different civilizations became increasing interested in the visual aesthetics of a home or establishment, and because of its pleasant texture, wood eventually became much more popular.
But, we all know that using wood also has lots of drawbacks. For example, real timber is vulnerable to pest attacks like termites, wood ants, and woodworm. It is also not immune to the harsh effects of water, fire, and the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Lastly, wood absorbs water, which causes it to shrink and swell. Apart from these, many people are becoming more conscious as to whether real wood is an ethical choice. Forests around the world are starting to disappear because of the construction industry’s high demand for wood. This, along with the aforementioned negative aspects of real timber, has paved the way for the emergence of alternative timber products such as composite timber in locations like #suburb 1#, #suburb 2#, #suburb 3#, #suburb 4#, and #suburb 5#.
Is Composite Timber A Good Alternative?
Composite timber gained its popularity because of its many beneficial features. First, they are extremely safe because of their splinter free and slip resistant feature. They also require minimal upkeep, which saves you a lot of time, effort, and money eventually. Now, let us talk about the latter- the cost. Conventional timber is known to be more affordable upfront than composite timber. However, since real wood needs constant upkeep, you will end up paying more in the end. On the other hand, if you choose composite timber, you may have to pay a hefty price. However, since it does not need regular maintenance, you will end up saving a lot of cash down the road. What about the design, Futurewood supplies composite timber that looks a lot like conventional wood. They are available in different colors and finishes.
