Advantages of Wood Lining

For a cozy and cozy home, bet on the wood lining. The material is a great thermal insulation, keeping the temperature of the house always ideal. Fresh in summer and heated in winter.

2. Diversity of finishes

The wood lining allows for numerous finishing options. Starting with the choice of wood that, as stated above, defines the tone of the liner. But if you prefer, you still have the possibility to paint the liner of the color you want. White or colored. It's up to you.

To leave the lining the color of the wood, pass lacquer. To color it, paint with latex paint, after sanding all the wood.

An important tip: the white color is neutral and fits well in any environment, other colors may leave the lining contrasting too much. So stay tuned for the choice of color so you do not weigh in the look and do not stumble across the rest of the decor.

3. Durability

Wood is a very durable and durable material. Therefore, much indicated to compose the structure of the ceiling.

However, to get the most out of the durability of the wood you need to take some special care that we will quote below.

4. Aesthetics

One of the main advantages of wood lining is its aesthetic effect. The material talks very well with varied styles of decoration and always provides that touch more.

In combination with brick walls or stones, the lining helps create a more rustic environment. With neutral and sober colors, the wood gives sophistication to the place. Everything will depend on the use of the other elements of the decoration. But in general, the wood lining tends to accentuate, enhance or contrast with the rest of the decor.

One thing is certain: it will not go unnoticed.

Disadvantages of Wood Lining

1. Cost

When compared to other types of lining - like PVC or plaster - the wood liner is at a disadvantage. The material is usually more expensive and depending on the wood chosen the price varies a lot as well.

Pinus lining is the most cost-effective. So if your desire is to install a wood liner, adapt your design so that it fits in your pocket.

2. Regular maintenance

Another disadvantage that needs to be taken into account is the periodic maintenance that this type of material needs. This maintenance includes painting with varnish and the application of products to ward off insects, such as termites. Without proper treatment, the wood can also accumulate fungi and bacteria and end up rotting.

However, although it seems expensive and laborious, the truth is that this maintenance ends up being an advantage. A liner that undergoes frequent maintenance is less prone to infestations from pests or natural wear.

That way, you will have a beautiful liner for much longer, since wood is a material of high durability and strength.

3. Humidity

Humidity is one of the main enemies of wood. The material easily absorbs the humidity of the surroundings and this characteristic can give you unpleasant consequences, like the puffing of the wainscoting and the appearance of mold. In addition to causing the rotting of the wood.

And if the moisture does not come from the environment, it can come from the roof. But to avoid possible leaks and infiltrations from above, the tip is to coat the lining on the inside with a blanket. In this way, the water does not come in contact with the wood.

For outdoor areas, which tend to suffer more from moisture, it is already possible to find woods prepared for this type of environment on the market. But, prepare the pocket, because this type of wood has an even greater value than the traditional liner.

4. Pests

Termites also fall into the list of disadvantages of wood lining. These small insects can cause the greatest headache and endanger the entire lining.

But just as it is possible to get around other problems, it is also easily controlled by regular use of specific products that protect wood from pest attack. There is also the choice of hardwood liners that are more resistant to termites, such as Imbuia, for example.

One application every five years is enough to keep the insects away.

Installation of wood lining

The wood lining offers some aesthetic possibilities at the time of installation that greatly help to compose the visual effect of the environment. It can be installed horizontally, vertically and even diagonally, creating compositions and differentiated lines in the ceiling.

The installation, as a rule, is simple, but it is important that it is done by a professional to ensure perfect fittings and joints between the parts. Generally, the slats are fitted together in the male and female system and further secured with a clip individually.

Make sure the liner model you choose is fixed or removable. There are both types available on the market, but the removable ones are more suitable if the need for adjustments or changes of parts in the future arise.

After installation must be applied varnish (or paint) and a protector against termites.
