Wood has high thermal efficiency, light weight and can be quickly assembled on site after working in the workshop, therefore wood is an ideal material for expansion / lifting. In harmony with or in addition to existing materials, it provides a rich architectural style and highlights any type of building.
Thanks to its insulating capacity superior to other structural materials, wood makes it possible to build thermally efficient walls and roofs. Therefore, to achieve the same result, the required walls are thinner, which is especially true on the sides of the wooden frame, since the insulation is the core of the structure. They can then be reinforced with a layer of wood fiber on the outside. Thinner walls mean more interior space on the same lot.
Timber is much lighter than concrete, shatter brick, or brick, does not require a large amount of foundation when expanding, and puts less pressure on the existing frame when lifted. In addition, if strict “technical rules” must be observed, the returned wood will hardly cause any nuisance: the site is fast and kept dry and clean. Before assembly on site, the panels, walls, frames and sometimes the roof must be made in the workshop. In most cases, residents of the main building can remain in place, whether it is an expansion or an elevation.
As wood blends perfectly with concrete, brick, stone or glass, wood can be used for all types of projects from the most traditional to the most modern. The variety of shapes, elements or colors leaves room for imagination and creativity. On a facade, wood elegantly renews the structure of the house, showing the value and value of …! Lovers of browns, silvery grays and dark tones will choose wood that is unaffected by sunlight and weathering. On the contrary, those who want to stabilize the shade will protect the wood with varnish, paint, saturant or heat treatment, taking advantage of the endless possibilities.
From sustainably managed forests, wood is a 100% natural material. It effectively participates in the reduction of greenhouse gases, because once cut and used in the house, it can continue to store the carbon dioxide absorbed during its growth: 1 cubic meter of wood can store a ton of carbon dioxide. carbon! Many species cultivated and harvested in France are used for wood construction and limit greenhouse gas emissions during transport. In the case of wood compression, all waste (shavings, shavings, sawdust) collected in the workshop’s manufacturing process are 100% recyclable.
When properly maintained, wood has an excellent aging capacity. Therefore, investing in wood means investing for a long time! Single bristles are sufficient to ensure durability in the case of raw wood. Plus, clean, new finishes can easily make polished or painted wood look like new. In all cases, these are light and quick interventions that cause few problems. Why deprive yourself? Since then, with the support of the public authorities, the development of timber has provided the country with financial and fiscal assistance to help protect the environment.
