At the Fremantle Door & Window Company, we provide a variety of custom built timber bifold doors for our customers in the Perth area. We would like to explain some of the benefits of using timber as a building material, especially for bifold doors in the Perth area.
There is nothing more beautiful than timber for building a door. Whether it is a timber framed bifold door or a solid timber door, timber is the most aesthetically pleasing material with which to build a door. Timber with a clear finish allows the full beauty of the timber to show through. This is a very natural look that helps integrate your home with nature, especially if you have trees in your garden or your home is next to bushland.
If you cover timber with a stain, it can look majestic. A dark stained, solid timber door lends an air of authority and prosperity to any office. It can also match up well with furniture made of timber.
Timber is a natural insulator. It helps you save on energy costs when heating or cooling your home or business. Unlike aluminium or other materials that transfer heat ultra-efficiently and are like insulation in reverse, timber helps your home stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Timber tends to last a long time. A timber door can be easily repaired, even if it sustains structural damage. When an aluminium door goes bad, it usually needs to be replaced. Timber doors will usually last as long as you build your home.
Timber is a sustainable resource. It actually has a reverse carbon footprint; it stores more carbon and releases oxygen. In addition, timber products have a long shelf life. Since timber is a natural product, it doesn’t take a lot of energy or cause a lot of environmental impact to turn into useable building materials.
