Wood burning: when wood is burned, it is usually best to dry it first. Damage from shrinkage is not a problem here, Moisture affects the burning process, with unburnt hydrocarbons going up the chimney. If a 50% wet log is burnt at high temperature, with good heat extraction from the exhaust gas.
Waterproofing is the process of making an object or structure waterproof or water-resistant.Such items may be used in wet environments or under water to specified depths. Water resistant and waterproof under pressure, Permeation of water vapor through a material or structure is reported as a moisture vapor transmission rate.

The growth of wood-alternative products continues to fuel a debate about their environmental value when compared to wood, treated wood, metal and other alternatives.

When open, doors admit people, animals, ventilation or light. The door is used to control the physical atmosphere within a space by enclosing the air drafts, so that interiors may be more effectively heated or cooled. Doors are significant in preventing the spread of fire. They also act as a barrier to noise.
Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees, and other woody plants. It has been used for thousands of years for both fuel and as a construction material. It is an organic material, a natural composite of cellulose fibers (which are strong in tension) embedded in a matrix of lignin which resists compression.
