In this article, we are going to discuss some strategies to protect wood from getting damaged. These strategies are suggested by some of the wood architects who have faced some kind of problems during their 'wood architect carrier' (also known as 'wood arkitetk brum' in Norway language).

Fixing With Wood Preservatives
We can stop decaying of wood by treating it using timber preservatives. But some of the wood preservatives may harm other creatures and humans. That is why if the wood is utilized outdoors where it's frequently wet or in proximity to water, then that will be good for all humans and other creatures.
Wood additives are divided into two groups: Waterborne and oil borne chemicals. About 75 % of wood that's commercially treated now is treated with waterborne salts, and CCA is the chemical used in healing for the greatest volume of wood.
Just creosote and pentachlorophenol are powerful chemicals protecting wood in direct contact. These are the only two preservatives that offer protection.
Wood in service has to be occasionally retreated by brushing or many different other procedures.
Retreatment of timber window frames, door frames, wood timber, and beams can be performed by drilling holes in areas where decay has started and filling these holes with a suitable treating compound. Retreatment of timber used in contact must be realized by the use of pastes and wrapping with preservative impregnate bandages.
