Wood structures have a lot of advantages including functional advantage like its high durability due to wood technical treatment which is a new technique which makes the good qualities and properties stay longer and possible recovery by simple maintenance that can make buildings last hundreds of years , wood is very reusable and recoverable material , wood also is an excellent thermal insulator due to its cellular structure and The coefficient of thermal conductivity of the wood is very low which means no sudden change in temperature which cause pleasant interior climate , wood is also an excellent acoustic insulator due to its chemical composition which absorbs energy from the acoustic waves , wood have high adaptability and structural stability. Wood also have environmental advantages like the fact that wood is the only building material that reduces carbon dioxide emissions and helps in slowing down the climatic change, wood consume less energy in manufacturing and it’s a natural renewable resource. wood is better for human health and wellbeing as studies show that the use of wood has physiological and psychological health benefits like less stress and increase in productivity rates, learning and healing process occur faster and people is genuinely happier and calmer in places with natural elements in them. Wood is also cheaper, and studies have proven that wood timber frames is consistently the most effective solution for direct building expenses and wood in naturally beautiful give natural authentic vibes and researches show that 96 percent of Australian people agreed that wood visually appealing and have a natural look to it. Wood also is good for safety although a common misconception is wood is highly flammable which very wrong sure wood is used as fuel but in structures wood is actually better than other construction materials because it burns in a very slow and controlled way compared to other building materials for example wood handles fire in a far superior method than steal , also wood only burns at the surface while simultaneously creating a protective carbon layer which retains its static properties. Wood have great protection against earthquakes due to the fact that in case of an earthquake buildings are subjected to great force which means the heavier the building and the more rigid it is more likely to get very damaged while wood is more flexible and due to its relatively low weight so it have a capacity to stretch and resist the force acting upon it an excellent example for this is the situation with earthquakes in Italy during the last couple of years has proven that wood structures are very safe. Wood also have great resistance against electrical current especially dry wood it has the electric current resistance equivalent to phenol formaldehyde.
