The Right Wood

Finding the right wood for your desired purpose takes a lot into consideration. Woods have different colors, strength and grain characteristic, weight, durability, cost and availability.

The color of the wood for use as flooring influences the total look or ambiance of the place, from creating a vintage feel to pushing for something modern. Having distressed look on woods may set just the right mood, but it is not just practical for others. Thus, hardness is another factor to consider. Each tree also has a different grain patterns and character markings, making each one unique.

But, whether the choice is for form or function, the right wood must be able to last.  It is just not right to lose a piece of wooden artwork or the perfect armchair or the interior of the house people saved up to insect infestation, rotting, decaying or discoloration.  Neumann and Mueller Philippines Inc. under its Material Protection Division, encourages everyone using wood as a major material or component such as those in the timber, furniture, and construction industries to take-in the task of protecting the wood they use and produce through its new product Dacrol.
