Today we will talk about wooden country houses from glued beams. We will be interested in the reasons why these structures have gained popularity and became in demand all over the world.
Ladure housing, built of wood, in the 21st century, look not only modern, but also prestigious, it has come into fashion. The New Russian stone castles behind tall fences are alerted, wooden country houses look much prettier – friendly, and not aggressive in relation to the environment.
Moreover, engineering and scientific thought is not standing still, and the construction technology has been enriched with many techniques and discoveries. New materials appeared widely used in wooden architecture, which have much expanded ideas about the possibilities of wood. A breakthrough in this type of construction is rightfully belongs to the development of the production of glued beams. This is a high -quality and high -tech material made of natural wood, which retains all the advantages of a tree, but does not have many of its shortcomings.
Coniferous wood (in our country, pine and spruce are more often used for this), before becoming the basis, the “body” of the future house, a complex cycle of special processing takes place. It can be divided into five stages.
Already in logging, modern technology is used so that the raw materials are without defects and damage. The raw materials received at the plant undergo a thorough preliminary selection, a beam with cracks, knots, and low quality is rejected. After that, the material falls into the gluing workshop, where the most time -consuming operations are performed: the connection of wooden lamellas (boards), profiling.
For gluing, special ecological adhesives of the new generation, the so -called ecocles are used: they are absolutely harmless to humans, in addition, they do not interfere with the tree “breathing”, and this property, as you know, is one of the largest advantages of wooden houses, the walls of which are naturally absorbed and release moisture, preserving the constant microclimate. Glued profiled timber, which is at the exit, is environmentally friendly, durable and extremely beautiful material.
The most significant drawback to date is one – this material is quite expensive compared to the usual beam, which is explained by the high cost of manufacturing and using expensive equipment. It should be noted that these costs will constantly return and pay off: such a house will be simple for many years, it is not subject to mold and fungus, does not deform from shrinkage, cracks do not form in glued beams. In such a cottage, you can get instigated immediately at the end of construction. Specialists unanimously call glued beam the most promising building material that belongs to the future.
