Composite Wood & Application
Composite wood has gained its competitive market share throughout the past decades as more and more users have started to accept it compared to using hardwood or softwood. The reason as prioritized to make everyone likes to use composite as an alternative is that if real solid timber will be to use, many challenges could happen since there are so many species of wood that are not in line with the demand coping. When technology advances in terms of tree harvesting, as well as modified conditions for trees to grow faster to meet the supplier for processing into end product to the customer, wood as a building material, has returned back as an aesthetic option for many designers when they put into the specification of either mass housing, individual bungalow to high rise projects as an interior. Furthermore, it should be also understood that timber has a longer supply chain lead time and effort to involve due to its complicated demands. For instance, certain species of timber needs to be imported from some countries that did not provide the local supply cost advantage as compared to composite wood that can be manufactured anywhere (just a matter of economies of scale to achieve cost-benefit).
Furthermore, wood has its drawbacks as in the maintenance is higher since it requires a special coating to achieve certain functionalities from anti-termite, waterproof, UV-resistant and texture refurbishment. Since it is a natural product, the weight and its surface area are prone to changes from absorption of moisture content and also ageing. Its fading is unavoidable and hence, yearly upkeep works needed to be done, the structure of underlayment to allow real wood to be sitting on top of it also need to check and balance for the sake of safety. Moreover, the coating is also depleting its efficiency as time passes, we shall be taking note of this and spare your applicator as well as the original coat or paint supplier in advance for a future renewal of its protection. Once the shield was gone, many difficulties could happen as they will need more efforts to rectify when the damages are caused without prompt action. For example, the termite will penetrate the integrity and compromising will occur in terms of its strength and outlook when recoating has not been done by the owner on a timely basis.
Composite wood, on the other hand, vendors usually will provide at least 7 to 10 years when there are product defect and the manufacturer also hold liability on top of that. Of course, need to get a reliable or branded producer that has reputable or long-established experiences in the market. The installer is also another factor to determine the quality of composite wood that has been installed to your properties. No finger-pointing or any inappropriate blaming when there is any unqualified contractor is appointed in this case, do the homework ahead to prevent such a disappointing incident since many things could happen and hardly investigate who’s fault is that. Workability is another point owner must discuss with the designer and supplier, the stock lead time for unique design, the laying method as well as the product pattern to be done. Many feasible solutions can work through when the open talk is there, upfront and transparent discussion to achieve mutual agreement to make sure seamless project execution.
