How quickly can a wooden house be built?
Ans. On an average, a wooden house can be built at least 60% faster than
traditional construction technologies. You can be sure that your imagination
will be in front of your eyes within 3-5 months depending upon the project
Do you offer more than just standard models, i.e., can they be changed?
Ans. Yes, every Champion Prefab house is personalized and built to your
specification. The only limit is your imagination!
Does a wooden house require much maintenance?
Ans.Depending on exposure to the sun, a typical house needs to be treated every 3-5 years, just as most homes require painting. This is economical and will give long-lasting benefits; with appropriate maintenance a wooden
house can last indefinitely. Many centuries old wooden buildings are still standing and they did not have the benefit of today’s specially treated wood.
Do you use ecologically produced wood?
Ans. Yes, the wood comes from controlled forests. We only use
environmentally-certified wood suppliers (Certificate ISO 140001 / Environmental Management System).
What kind of wood do you use?
Ans. We use SPF (Spruce, Pine, Fir family) Lumber–a distinctly white
wood with little color variation. It is widely used as a structural framing
material in all types of residential, commercial, and industrial building
applications. These trees grow slowly in the cold climate making their wood
very dense and resistant.
Can other materials be incorporated in a wooden house?
Ans. Yes. For example, if wooden floors are not preferred, stone, tiles, or cork can be used instead. You just have to imagine and we are here to make it real.
What about the risk of fire?
Ans. Surprisingly, in a direct comparison with traditional building materials, wood behaves much better in fire. Concrete, for example, will crack and
collapse under extreme heat. With wood, the charcoal generated by combustion forms a natural insulating layer during a fire, which protects the
wood from becoming even hotter. Also, its load-bearing capability is almost fully retained.
Is it true that wooden homes are healthier to live in?
Ans. Definitely! Since wood 'breathes,' it allows a continuous flow of fresh
air through its pores, preventing humidity and mold. Far less dust is also
produced, so that those suffering from asthma and other respiratory
problems feel a real benefit living in a wooden home.
What are the energy-saving benefits of wooden home construction?
Ans. Thermal mass refers to the log walls’ capacity to absorb, store, and slowly release heat over time. Logs have thermal mass because of their
cellular structure, bulk, and thickness. This thermal mass provides significant energy saving benefits because it releases heat back into the
house when temperatures drop.
Due to this thermal mass, fully scribed log homes in most situations are 20-30% more energy efficient in terms of heating and cooling than other builds.
They will stay cool in the summer and warm throughout the winter.
Can wood-built homes help with noise reduction?
Ans. Even though wood doesn’t act as a perfect sound insulator, it does prevent echoes from bouncing around the room by absorbing sound waves.
When compared to its construction competitors, wood proves to be much more effective at sound insulation, especially when it comes to insulating
between different rooms.
What will be the cost to build one of the wooden house plans I saw in your site?
Ans. To know about the cost estimation of a project, you can talk to our consulted Manager. He will give you all the details you need further.
Can you provide me a price for my requirements?
Ans. Yes, we can provide a budget cost or fixed-price quotation; just contact us and we'll be pleased to oblige.
