Canadian wood frame construction is based on experience and building science. Heat air and moisture flows are based on the building envelope and the indoor and outdoor environment. Building science principles can be applied to all climates to enable the construction of durable energy efficient wood frame buildings.
Canada has a good record for minimizing fire in wood frame buildings. Wood frame assemblies can have high resistance to fire and sound transmission. Fire retardant coatings are available for a range of wood products.
