TREATED WOOD IS ECONOMIC AND SUSTAINABLE OPTION IN CONSTRUCTION
The use of wood in construction and decoration is increasingly daily, and when the subject is treated wood from planted forests the benefits are countless. In addition to being 10% to 20% cheaper than native wood, this type of wood has natural beauty, offers pest resistance, lasts longer and is a sustainable option.
The treated wood is initially more expensive than others, but in the long run the project does not need to be reassessed, rebuilt or refurbished. By only having to build once, much money can be saved not to mention saving time and stress. Due to the longevity and durability of the pressure treated wood, the structure will have to be redone for decades, making it an easy choice for any budget.
Being included as a "green" product, the environmental benefits should not be overlooked. Not only the conservation process consumes less energy than alternative building products, but through treatment, wood can last much longer than other options, putting less pressure on our forests.
Despite all the wood needs to be cleaned, pressure treated wood will not rot, even when placed directly on the floor. Termites and other insects will not destroy the foundations. Fungal diseases will not penetrate structures. Depending on the purchased wood type, some woods yet treated comes with water-resistant coatings to prevent warping. All these additional benefits are very low maintenance structure and makes maintenance very easy process for the owner.
The treated eucalyptus is still the only building material that can be at the same time, ecological and 100% renewable, helping to reduce pressure on native forests and working on the efficient capture and carbon dioxide storage (the "popular" CO2) free in the atmosphere, which is the number one responsible for the greenhouse effect. It is, today, without any doubt, the roundwood preferred in the construction of fences, poles and fence posts, or in the middle of cities or in rural areas, acquiring durability equal to or even greater than in other materials, which have the disadvantage of not being renewable such as concrete or metal, serving very well all customer needs.
Wherever you are employed, either in fences, gazebos, walkways, housing buildings, or public, such as schools and hospitals, it is certain that the treaty eucalyptus present incomparable advantages, such as standardization of wood, versatility, speed, durability, cost and more importantly, the preservation of nature.
