For centuries, wood has been used as a durable and reliable building material, coming second only to stone in terms of its rich history in the world of construction. Wood certainly has clear advantages when compared with varying construction materials, however, European wood species are often quite unsustainable.
Known methods for improving the longevity and sustainability of wood are often rather harmful for the environment due to the use of high-toxicity chemicals and/or the involvement of energy-intensive processes. However, green alternatives are on the rise. Xyhlo biofinish is the most famous solution in construction and facade cladding, praised for its low-maintenance and sustainable outdoors applications.
Xyhlo for residential building

Evolving around environmentally responsible processes and resource-efficient design, wood comes in as a natural first choice in the establishment of green buildings. Wood means many benefits such as lower embodied energy consumption and the building material being light and easy to work with. However, local wood species such as European softwood need protection against climatic influences to be truly sustainable. Xyhlo biofinish contains the protective qualities needed for using wood for residential building, all the while being a 100% natural.
