Today we’re talking about the importance of using sustainable timber for your wooden doors – why? Because we believe it’s important we all play a role in contributing towards protecting the environment. We all know that trees play an integral role in capturing Co2, and this is important because it’s Co2 that’s causing all the problems with an increase in the atmosphere. Co2 emissions are one of the biggest causes of global warming.
And yes global warming leads to climate change, so it’s important we all try to play our part, no matter how small a part that is. That’s why here at The Replacement Door Company we advocate the use of sustainable timber for all wooden doors.
What difference does sustainable timber make?
Co2 is captured by trees as they grow, and it’s locked away within the wood where it’s stored for the entire lifetime of the timber – whatever product it becomes. Sustainable timber then does a very important job in taking Co2 out of the atmosphere, and thus helps to reduce the impact of global warming on the planet.
What are the benefits to you of using sustainable timber?
You get better insulation because wood has great thermal properties, and this means that not only is your home kept warm in winter, it’s also kept cool in summer. Sustainable timber also helps the British economy by providing jobs in the timber processing and forestry industry. It takes less energy to produce products made of sustainable timber and due to its unique properties, you can create some beautiful designs. That way, you get to do your bit for the planet and you get beautifully crafted wooden doors.
Versatile as well as sustainable
Sustainable wood is extremely versatile and isn’t just used on doors. You can use sustainable timber for sheds, doors and sheet materials. You could have a suite of wooden doors that will last a lifetime, so you’ll get back what you invested over the years.
Finally, because sustainable timber is so important to the planet, forests are well managed and as a result, have a positive impact on biodiversity. This means that plants and animals are protected too. Look out for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a certification scheme which sets the highest standards for the use of sustainable timber.
