Because of its strength, artistic, acoustic, and thermal qualities, wood is a common building material. When compared to concrete, it also has a lower environmental impact. Compared to concrete, wood consumes less electricity and releases less CO2 over its lifespan. However, fire-prevention regulations can prohibit its usage in some types of buildings. There are many ways to shield wooden surfaces from flames, one of them is to use fire retardant materials.
