Wood’s light weight and workability make it easy to apply to specific applications. With the exception of major members that are made to spec off-site, wood can be adapted in the field, allowing quick solutions if changes are required. Wood is also well suited to additions and retrofits, and wood systems can be dismantled with relative ease and the materials used elsewhere.
Building with wood, whether custom or prefabricated, is fast and efficient, and can be undertaken year-round in almost any climate. Experienced wood contractors are widely available, and workers of varying skill levels can quickly learn wood construction techniques. Get maximum building performance and service life by following some simple, but necessary, design and construction steps and maintenance practices.
