Wood, Still Proven to be the Best Value
Sustainable Superiority and Lumber Prices Provide Wood's Competitive Advantages in Hawaii
In recent years, sustainable building and green design have added a significant amount of worth to Hawaii's homes. Sustainable, energy efficient homes are increasing in value due to their lower operating costs and superior comfort levels. No other building material achieves these green standards more so than wood. Furthermore, a recent study found that wood, compared to steel, has once again proven to be the most environmentally sustainable building material.

In 2010, the Consortium for Research on Renewable Industrial Materials (CORRIM) conducted a cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment (LCA) to identify and compare the environmental impacts related to borated treated lumber framing and galvanized steel framing. An LCA assesses the overall environmental impact of products from the manufacturing process to recycling or disposal.
