A real living comfort
A wooden house protects against external attack, cold, heat, wind, noise. The natural qualities of the wood ensures excellent regulation both from a thermal point of view than from the point of view of moisture. It is the guarantee of a healthy indoor air in summer as in winter.
A wooden house is a House that breathes
Wood is a material that breathes and that behaves like a sponge: it absorbs moisture when it is in excess, to release it when the air is too dry. Maintaining a level of humidity constant of 40%, a wooden house to obtain a comfortable indoor climate.
Insulation of the acoustic point of view
Sound insulation plays an important role in the comfort of each habitat. Wooden houses are constructed in panels that combine different materials, which are also very effective in terms of insulation.
Insulation of thermal point of view
Thanks to its cellular structure, which can capture the air in small volumes, wood is a poor conductor of heat, which means that it is a very good thermal insulation. Thus, wood protects us from the cold and heat. Same thickness, wood has a power d ‘ insulation 6 times higher than that of the brick, 350 times greater than steel, 10 times larger than the concrete and 1,700 times higher than that of aluminium. A panel of 16 cm thick wooden has the same insulating properties as a one metre thick brick wall.
These qualities of insulation of wood allow substantial savings in heating homes, up to 40% on the regular price of the invoice. Constant insulation, the thickness of the walls of a wooden house will be less, allowing for more space. By offering a thermal comfort in all seasons, wooden houses meet the requirements of the European programmes that encourage energy savings.
With the exception of the foundations, a wood frame house didn’t need much time to dry. In place of the walls and the roof, we use wood panels built in the workshop (as you can see here). Thus a construction site for a small project can be completed in only a few days. This situation is compared with a classical construction which lasts about four months, generating a lot of waste, noise and various inconveniences.
Modularity and flexibility
The characteristics of the wood allow its use as a building material in any project and encourages the creativity of architects. The wooden buildings can evolve without difficulty: arrangements and extensions will be easily achievable. Nothing is set in stone when it comes to a wooden house!
Control the amount of material used
The techniques of construction of wooden houses have been adapted to the needs of architects, economists, energy specialists and end users, ensuring a sustainable use. A wooden house is five times lighter than traditional construction, which requires less material for the foundations and also allows to build on more furniture surfaces.
