Construction Materials


Yielding to an external high-quality charm designs handmade, home made of logs and profiled bar does not concede to them the quality of performance indicators, while possessing a low cost. However, there is one myth that you can often hear from future homeowners: "Round beam is much worse than hand-chopped logs, because with it removed a "protective layer or the most durable fiber. In fact, the tree trunk is composed of bark, sapwood, and the nucleus. The bark is a protective layer of wood, like the skin of rights. Sapwood – it is a young wood that surrounds the nucleus, it is responsible for the supply of juice to the tree crown and the most susceptible to all sorts of biological and physical lesions. Kernel – is ripe wood, it is sap turned into pitch, and it is this part of the tree is biologically and physically very strong. According to the new technologies of modern technology for production houses of logs and profiled bar, unlike traditional technology is more complex.

On it blank for the future construction material is dried in the chamber to 18-22% moisture, and after is profiled in a log or timber. Such technology has advantages over traditional technology of the logs of natural humidity. During the drying process, forced or natural chamber in the wooden house, a log will inevitably crack. But after the drying chamber can advantageously positioned workpiece on the machine that is in place the largest cracks to make "lunar groove or compensatory drink. As a result, the walls of the future house, cracking will be minimized, and the cracks will be smaller size compared to log the natural moisture dried up in the wall. It is also important to note that the surface of the logs from a dry piece will have a smooth, polished look and will not be "Mohr" over time. Except improved aesthetics to minimize cracking in the horizontal direction reduces the thermal conductivity of the wall, house gets warmer. Risk of deformation of logs in the wall due to their shrinkage is minimized, since the logs were made even from a dry piece, so all connections and joints logs receive a guaranteed warmer.

Dry wood does not rot and fungal staining, in addition, it is better absorbs the antiseptic and paint products, which significantly increases the durability of the structure. Reduced construction time, as the shrinkage of the carcass from the dried material reaches only up to 3%, not 8.7% as the material of natural moisture, so finishing can be performed immediately and the period of construction on a turnkey basis can be reduced to 6 months instead of 1.5 years. Thus, the house chopped by hand – is the choice of a wealthy man who finds charm in massive logs of different diameters. House made of logs or profiled bar – to select a pragmatist who appreciates the microclimate of wooden houses. Log house from the dry material – choice of modern man, who appreciates only the highest quality of life.
