COATINGS FOR WOODEN HOUSE ROOFS AND OTHER OUTDOOR STRUCTURES

The development of construction technology and the recent trends that use sustainable architecture and eco-compatible materials to build houses, now need roofs to help meet the requirements of energy saving, thermal and acoustic insulation, residential comfort, health and well-being.
Roofs are a major component in the design of a house and the decision to build them in wood offers major benefits. In addition to offering protection from the weather, wood is also extremely light and its insulation properties reduce temperature loss while letting interiors breathe to help  control humidity. A wooden roof is also safe as its lightness and the elasticity of its load-bearing structure make it extremely resistant to seismic events.
Wood also offers aesthetic advantages that play an important role in interior design. Simply lift your head and you will be amazed by the cosy atmosphere that wood creates. And when combined with other materials it can blend perfectly with any architectural context too.
The roof is one of the parts of the house most exposed to the elements and changes in climate. As a construction material, wood has excellent mechanical and aesthetic characteristics, but it will deteriorate if exposed to rain, damp and sunshine.  This is why long-lasting protection is required to combat weathering and ensure the wood remains completely efficient.
