Architectural Timber Facades

timber facades

The timber facade is the most natural and most suitable front alleviation for houses and the only house that is truly environmentally friendly and brings a sense of unity between nature and man.

Why use timber for your house?

Comfort and design

Timber is characterised by warm in winter and cools in summer, moisturising and natural humidifier, heat insulation, and strong air permeability. Timber houses using contemporary architecture designs and modern construction solutions provide an environmentally and production-friendly natural touch to your home.

Durability and thermal conductivity

The timber itself is a stable, long-lived, and durable material, and its service life far exceeds that of today’s ordinary building materials. The modern technology of timber facades has undergone processes such as flame retardant, anti-corrosion, and insect-proof treatment, making them more durable. It resists sinking stress, anti-drying, anti-aging, and has remarkable stability. Humans have built and used timber houses thousands of years ago.

Timber facades are much lighter, resulting in a low-cost substrate, making them more resistant. The thermal conductivity of timber is much lower than that of modern building materials, which makes it better than other materials for heat insulation, in every season.

When the indoor air humidity is high, the timber facade will automatically absorb moisture, it will release water from its cells, which can play a natural regulating and moisturizing effect.

Easy to construct and maintain

Modern wood-structured houses are easy to construct. Except for the supporting facilities on the ground, there are no piles of bricks, steel bars, cement, and dust on the construction site. The structural construction and connectors used are all processed and produced in the factory according to standards and then transported to the site.

The construction and installation speed of wood-structured houses is much faster than that of concrete and masonry structures, which greatly shortens the construction period, saves labour costs, and ensures the quality of construction.

The pinewood timber has a long-lasting period, simple and elegant, bright colour, clear wood grain, natural knots, hard material, not loose and not rotten when exposed to water, anti-corrosion, insect-proof, heat-preserving, breathable without static electricity, light-resistant and not easy to deform. The use of pinewood in timber battens is a type of timber façade and provides a contemporary and trendy look to architecture.

Timber and the environment

It absorbs the sun’s rays in an appropriate amount, it is like a natural air conditioner, living in such an environment for a long time, it feels as if the four seasons are like spring, winter is warm and summer is cool, comfortable, and cozy, Longevity is self-evident.

The wooden structure is tough, and because of its box structured particles, it can evenly disperse the momentary impact of an earthquake. Because of its lightweight and strong elasticity, wood-structured houses have a stronghold and resistance to impact loads and periodic damage.

Therefore, in the case of earthquakes, its resistance is stronger and safer. After the Kobe Earthquake, the Japanese government explicitly ordered all civilian houses to adopt North American wooden houses, and the basis is there.

There are various advantages that timber gives to your house, people would agree that timber facades are the most attractive choice for the home’s alleviation, and can be used in various styles, textures, and finishes.

Consider using timber façade in your next build and see how it completes the look.
