• Wood has the lowest embodied energy of any mainstream building material. A tonne of brick requires four times the amount of energy to produce sawn softwood – concrete five times, glass six times, steel 24 times and aluminium 126 times.
  • 3 tonnes of CO2 can be saved by using timber frame from the 20 tonne CO2 footprint of a typical 3 bedroom detached house. Increasing the timber content, including softwood cladding, can reduce the footprint to 2.4 tonnes – a total reduction of 17.6 tonnes CO2.
  • Wood houses reduce energy consumption because of their thermal efficiency. Wood has the best thermal insulation properties of any mainstream construction material – 5 times better than concrete, 10 times better than brick and 350 times better than steel
  • Wood is carbon neutral because trees absorb CO2 as they grow. In fact, because of the carbon sink effect of the forests, wood from sustainably managed forests can actually be better than carbon neutral. If you use enough wood, a whole building can be carbon neutral – or even better.
  • Timber can be given a highly effective preservative protection to greatly extend its service life. These industrially applied treatments help to ensure sure we make the most of timber.

  • Timber is the ultimate sustainable building material. Substituting a cubic metre of timber for other building materials can save almost two tonnes of CO2.
  • As trees grow, they help reduce climate change by absorbing CO2 and storing it away. They clean the atmosphere of pollutants and help create the oxygen we breathe.
  • Trees absorb one tonne of carbon dioxide for every cubic metre’s growth. They also produce the oxygen we breathe – almost three quarters of a tonne of oxygen for every cubic metre’s growth.



Siberian larch is a unique, high-quality building material. Due to their natural properties of larch, sawn timber from this wood is resistant to moisture and to harmful effects of the environment and insects. The larch board possesses not only excellent characteristics and qualities, this board is durable and differs from other lumber presented on the market, an amazing natural texture and an extensive color palette.

Wood veneer is a thin slice of wood that is about a sixteenth of an inch thick. It is fixed to the surface of a solid core panel to have the appearance of hardwood. Depending on the tree it comes from, and the way in which it is cut, a wood veneer can have many different styles and appearances. In some cases, its versatility exceeds even hardwood.

Cost Effectiveness

It is widely known that installing wood veneer is less costly than using its hardwood counterpart. Since the layer of wood is so thin and can be used to cover a number of surfaces, not only do you pay for less wood, the installation process itself requires less labor. Made from almost any type of tree, wood veneer can look like whatever you desire at a fraction of the price.

Environmental Considerations

Veneer is not only a better value than hardwood, it is better for the environment. When boards are made, they are cut by a fast-moving saw blade. The end product of this process is not only the one inch thick board, but an amount of saw dust equaling 1/16″ to 1/8″ (depending on the width of the blade) for the entire length of the board. It’s not difficult to see how quickly that dust can add up. Wood veneer is sliced in a process that produces no dust and, therefore, leaves significantly less waste.

Hardwood also has a tendency to warp over time, requiring that wood to be replaced by new wood. Wood veneer attached to a solid base doesn’t have the same warping problems that hardwood does. Though the base itself is often made of plywood, the trees used to make plywood grow at a much faster rate than do the hardwoods, and can therefore be harvested and replenished more efficiently. It should also be noted that up to 42 surfaces of veneer can be made for every surface of inch thick board. Wood veneer can also make use of tree sections that boards cannot (such as burls and crotches) because veneer will not have to support weight. When it comes to rare and exotic wood, veneer is by far the more eco-friendly choice.

Wood Veneer: An Upside to Being Shallow by HomeAdvisor

No one can deny the aesthetic appeal of hardwood. It adds character and authenticity to homes, furniture, and even automobiles. The sticker price is, of course, quite high. What some people consider even more daunting is the toll that harvesting hardwood takes on the environment. Because of these factors, many consumers are considering other options.
