Myths about Wooden Houses: true or false?

Even though technologies of constructing wooden houses keep rapidly improving and meet the highest standards, old myths about them still exist. False information about longevity or practicality of the house might stop some people from building a wooden dwelling. However, professional wood protection solutions and modern specialist decisions are debunking these myths.

Qualitative modern wooden houses

Myth No. 1: wooden houses are cold in winter

Very often people believe that wooden houses are only liveable during the warm season. Wood is a natural insulator that keeps the warmth in way better than bricks, stones or concrete. “Maestro Cabins” offer glued-wood or solid wood walls that are 90, 120 or 160 mm thick (glued wood is a better insulator than solid wood). However, if you wish to live in a wooden house in the winter time and still spend a rational amount of money on heating, you should not be blinded by natural timber characteristics. While building a house, it is recommended to insulate the flooring and the roof with stone wool. After the house has settled, walls should be insulated as well. For that purpose, wood wool is a great choice as it is natural, durable, fireproof, has great warmth and sound insulation properties, and creates a good microclimate. What also should be kept in mind is that warmth can leave the house through poor quality windows. To avoid that, “Maestro Cabins” offer high quality double-glazed (or, up to your requirements, even triple-glazed) windows.

Myth No. 2: building a wooden house takes very long

All the construction works can drag on due to various reasons. However, a wooden house from “Maestro Cabins” will reach you within 6–10 weeks after placing the order. Of course, other time-consuming processes should not be forgotten – preparing the land, pouring a foundation or building stilts, installing electricity, plumbing, heating or other systems might take a long time. Also, the specialists will need at least a few days to put all the pieces together and build a house. Apart from that, a wooden house settles way faster than a brick house; so, if you decide to insulate the house from the outside, you will finalize building a wooden house way sooner than a house of any other type.

Myth No. 3: wooden houses are temporary

Even though wooden houses are friendlier to nature than those made of other materials, it does not mean that they are fragile and unresistant to weather conditions. If timber is properly processed and maintained, a wooden house is as long-lasting as others. Qualitative modern wooden houses are built from well-processed timber. Just as any other natural material, wood can become a great environment for mould, mildew or rot. These organisms especially like humidity. To avoid them, the timber must be protected with professional substances. High quality protection means have fungicidal properties, get absorbed by the wood well and protect it from unnecessary organisms. To assure the protection from external harm, timber must be covered in transparent or opaque coating. Clear coating works better on smooth surface. To protect the wooden house, timber impregnation can be used as it protects from rotting or fungi. It is worth remembering that coating must be renewed from time to time depending on the weather conditions. The Northern side of the house might remain the same for over a decade, however, the sunny side might need renewal after only a few years. Dark lacquers or opaque paint remain attractive and perform their protective function for longer than transparent coating. As long as you use the protective solutions properly and on time, your wooden house will serve your needs for very long.
