Profiled timbers

Experience has shown that if one compares a house from profiled double timber to houses of other type within such qualities as heat insulation, construction speed, and the construction costs, then timber frame type houses are 1 in any of those qualities. We wouldn’t praise our products, but we come up with arguments concerning materials, used in wooden houses construction. We offer a comparative table of advantages and disadvantages of rounded dry log, glued laminated timber and profiled timber.

Bottom line

As table shows every construction material has its advantages and disadvantages at once.   However, dry log underperforms in line with others materials.  If you want to build a wooden house with high performance at short terms, we would not recommend you such а material.  

Glued timber is quite good, but there is a big risk of fibering of glued timbers because of a low quality of glue. Besides, that technology is not ecological and more expensive in comparison with others technologies. Finally, it has his pros, and everybody who want to build a house should keep it technology in mind.     

Profiled dry timber almost has not disadvantages, so we can announce it as the best construction material for wooden houses, which combines a relatively low cost with high performance, durability and longevity. In summary, according to the facts, modern technologies, scientific progress and skilled professionals can create high quality products, that didn’t exist before.
