In South Africa, you need to use very specific building materials due to the wide range of weather patterns all over the land. This is why CCA Treated timber products will always be your go-to solution when looking for construction timber. It not only protects the wood from harsh weather conditions, but also against all insects that could possibly inflict damage to a construction.
Why use Eucalyptus as a building material?
We’re all familiar with the products that the Eucalyptus tree brings us, like essential oil and of course a natural habitat for Koala’s in Australia (Where the Eucalyptus tree are originally from). But lately, Eucalyptus has been used as structural timber and building materials because of the massive benefits.
So what are the benefits you ask?
- Provides structural support for buildings as Eucalyptus is classified as a hardwood.
- Eucalyptus is available in a variety of sizes.
- It can be CCA Treated to prevent insect and weather damage to your wood.
- It’s sustainable, versatile, beautiful, and gives a natural finish to any project.
Eucalyptus timber has been used for hundreds of years for many many things (Even to carve out didgeridoo by native Australians). But for now, we want to talk about the timber as a building material in South Africa, which leads to our next topic…
