How To Be Sustainable At Home.

Everyone is keen to be more sustainable at home, however, it can be difficult to know where to start. We have put together some top tips to be more eco-friendly at home.


External Timber Cladding


Exterior timber wall cladding is a great way to create a more energy-efficient home. We have already seen much stricter energy efficiency standards for new builds and extensions. Choosing to clad not only improves the appearance of your property but gives you extra insulation and the chance to save money. Timber is a great way to not only protect your brickwork which will increase the lifespan of your walls but can add character and individuality to your building.

Save on Home Décor.


Interior décor is a great way for you to reduce your carbon footprint as well as save money. You can find yourself spending a lot of money on décor to go inside your home, one way to reduce this cost is by creating your own by using offcuts you may have from a previous project. Not only is this budget-friendly but will minimise your waste. Check out our blog for Updating your Kitchen with your Wooden Offcuts.

Keeping Warm And Creating Light Without Electricity.


If you have a decked area in your garden you may choose to spend the evening outside - you might have a fire pit that you cosy up to as well. If you have a fire pit, another way you can ensure you are sustainable is by using QBriquettes, which are blocks of mechanically compressed ThermoWood sawdust.

Internal Timber Cladding


Timbers have excellent insulation properties, making them far better than steel and concrete at keeping the warmth in, as a result, this helps to reduce the energy needed to heat or cool a building, lowering your carbon footprint and saving you money over time. Timber cladding is 100% recyclable, meaning it is one of the most environmentally friendly materials available for construction. Discover more about ThermoWood Timber.
