The Benefits of wood

FIND OUT ALL THE BENEFITS OF BUILDING YOUR WOODEN HOME

NUMEROUS
BENEFITS

A wooden home is eco- friendly and biocompatible. Our wood comes from certified forests and the laws governing the preservation of forests are strictly upheld. This not only benefits those who live in a wooden home now but also future generations. Wood guarantees no dampness , dust reduction and electrosmog protection. Let’s not forget the economic benefits of a wooden home : the high insulation capacity of wood guarantees a fresh home in the summer and a warm home in the winter. Heating costs may reduced by up to 80%.

RAPID CONSTRUCTION
TIME

Building a wooden home takes about 1/3 of the time taken to build a traditional home . Our average building time is around 16 months.

ENERGY
SAVINGS

Excellent insulation combined with the total absence of thermal bridging and cold walls ensure wood is a high energy saving material. An X-Lam 3 wooden wall is more heat resistant than a concrete wall of the same width, hence wooden houses guarantee low energy consumption.

DURABILITY
GUARANTEED

There are numerous old prejudices and unjustified fears on this subject. Wood doesn’t rot because of humidity but because of condensation. The correct positioning of breathable material that allows damp to evaporate is fundamental so that neither mould nor fungi can form. Wooden constructions built centuries ago can be found in North America, Japan and Northern Europe. Moreover it is to be remembered that historical homes in Venice, the train station and the Real Palace in Amsterdam, as well as St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersbourg rest on wooden foundations.

RELIABLE
QUOTES

Wooden buildings are cheaper than traditional buildings in terms of performance indicators. What’s more, the quoted cost is what you pay as all possible variables in the design are decided during the design phase and the chances of incurring unforseen costs are very low.

CUSTOMIZED
HOME

The design phase represents 50% of the work needed to create a wooden home. It is during this phase when the customer’s needs analysis is done and every minimum detail is examined to ensure maximum efficiency.

ANTISEISMIC
BUILDINGS

Wooden supporting structures guarantee maximum safety in the event of an earthquake. Thanks to its elastic properties, to the optimum ratio betwen its own weight and the load supported as well as its intrinsic flexibility, a wooden building will withstand earthquakes much more efficiently than traditional buildings.

FIRE RESISTANT
MATERIAL

One of the greatest and groundless prejudices surrounding wood is fire resistance. Fire carbonization time is 0,7 mm per minute and the coal layer which forms functions as a protection for the outer layer, thus guaranteeing the building will remain standing for a few hours, a sufficient time for the inhabitants to leave the house, to put out the fire and consequently limit the damage to the building. Wooden prefab homes are more easily repairable than homes with steel or concrete structures.

MORE
LIVING SPACE

A X -Lam panel has transmittance values 3 times lower than a concrete wall of the same width. The lower the transmittance value the higher the thermal insulation of the building. The thermal insulation of a 30 cm wooden wall is comparable to that of a 90 cm wide concrete wall.

UNIQUE
Design

Wood, especially after the advent of X-Lam, is suitable for any design: from classical buildings to contemporary ones, from multistoreys to single homes. In reality it is often more flexible than other materials if you consider its light weight and its insulation capability.

All
inclusive

Legnotech offers several finishing options: from a natural ‘rough’ look to more subtle customised finishes.

LIVING
COMFORT

Living in a wooden home means living in a comfortable, warm environment with a constant microclimate – just ask those who do!

Green
Ecology

Wood, as a natural, renewable and 100% recyclable raw material contributes both to oxygen production and to the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere. Our production process requires a limited consumption of energy which is equal to that accumulated and transformed during the growth of the tree itself. Building with the environment in mind means better living.
