Timber helps keep the warmth inside

With energy rates continuing to rise, home renovations which incorporate building materials with insulating properties can help minimise the use of heating appliances during the cold winter months, reducing energy bills.

One of the most efficient of these is timber, which can provide an excellent barrier against heat escaping when combined with additional insulation under the floor. It also offers an insulation layer over a cold concrete slab, helping to keep the warmth inside.

Not only does timber contribute to insulation, its warm hues contribute to a snug winter ambience. Light creams, pale yellows, soft pinks and honey brown tones infuse a natural aesthetic for a cosy home environment.

Boral Timber offers a variety of species to perfectly complement a home’s dcor. Boral Timber’s solid flooring range can be installed onto bearers, joists or concrete and its engineered flooring range can be ’floated’ or glued over a variety of level, solid and dry subfloors, including concrete slabs, plywood or particle board, tiles or old timber floors.

Appealing to the environmentally-conscious homeowner, timber is also a natural and fully renewable resource. Boral Timber products are sourced from sustainably managed and legal sources, with the company achieving Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) Chain of Custody certification for its hardwood flooring. AFS is the only forest certification that meets Australian Standard AS 4708-2007 and is dedicated to supporting good forestry practices with sustainable management.
