The safety and economy of preservative wood


The following editor will introduce the safety and economy of anti-corrosion wood.


When deciding whether to use ordinary wood or anti-corrosive wood, in addition to considering the material costs and differences between the two types of wood, the ease and cost of inspection, maintenance, repair, and replacement of the wood during use should also be considered. For example, building trusses are usually in a closed condition, which is not convenient for daily inspection of wood decay and moth-eaten conditions. Once the wood is damaged due to decay, the cost of repair and replacement is huge. Similarly, wood used on cement or masonry foundations is part of building components such as bridges and houses. After the construction is completed, it is difficult to check the wood's anti-corrosion and moth-eaten status. Once a piece of wood has problems, it needs to be replaced. , It may be necessary to dismantle a large part of the structure of this building, so the replacement cost will be very staggering.


Wood is used outdoors or in the landscape, such as outdoor furniture, flooring, walkways, fences, etc. If you choose some tropical hardwoods (sometimes called hardwoods) that have good natural durability and a service life of up to 25 years, it is not impossible to not undergo preservative treatment. But its price may be very expensive, and the quantity (resources) is extremely limited. Therefore, the use of preservative wood is an ideal choice.


Wood components and wood products made of natural corrosion-resistant wood, such as heartwood of red cedar, cypress, etc., are generally used under semi-protected conditions, such as building side panels, or when the economic loss caused by wood damage is small Use, such as outdoor furniture.
