The need for reliable homes which are friendlier to the occupants as well as to the environment, which are built in a short period of time and with controlled cost first developed by Canadian homes®
. We brought the know-how of timber frame construction to Greece in 1966.
By evaluating correctly the natural properties and characteristics of wood and by applying modern methods, the engineers and technicians of our company established in Greece, like anywhere in the modern world, that wood is one of the most suitable building materials.
The flexibility and the durability of wood, in proportion to its weight are enormous. For this reason wooden buildings have excellent anti-seismic behaviour. This has been proven repeatedly in especially earthquake-prone areas of the world such as Japan, the west coast of the U.S.A. and Alaska. In Greece, Canadian homes®
had dozens of houses in the epicenter of the strongest earthquakes which have shown amazing anti-seismic behaviour and which have served as an excellent example for the future owners of our homes in those areas.
In addition to the attention that our company pays to matters of construction, we also give emphasis to the bio-climatic operation of the structure through specific architecture and layout (floor plans), insulation performance and durability of materials resulting in minimal cost of use and maintenance.
