WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF BUILDING A HOME WITH WOOD?

Traditional “stick-built” homes are builder favorites because they’re cheaper to construct than block homes.
 
Wood is lightweight, so it’s pretty easy to work with, and because it’s so familiar, most construction workers know how. Plus, it’s available at any home improvement store or lumber yard.
 
Wood also is a good insulator, so it can help keep your home warm on chilly nights. It’s also a renewable resource.
 
But like any building material, wood isn’t perfect.
 
For starters, termites love to destroy it. So wood has to be chemically treated to resist the pests. In addition, wood can expand and contract, or even warp and twist, in extreme weather. And it can develop problems with mold.
