The doors on a car, for example, might be wood and the windows are plastic, but they are the same thing: a plastic shell that doesn’t hold moisture.
If the door handles were treated like that, they would be nearly as water-resistant as the door itself.
Wood can hold more moisture, but it also has a much higher water resistance than plastic.
“The water resistance of wood is about 50 percent,” Wood said.
“You don’t get water in a plastic bottle that holds water.
If you can’t even get it through a plastic door, you can get water through a wood door, but the water resistance is not that great.”
It’s that combination of water resistance and high water absorption that makes wood doors so durable.
It’s a lot harder to get water to the inside of a door than a plastic one, Wood said, and it’s even harder to keep water out of the interior if you use a watertight sealant.
“It’s really a very tough material to seal,” Wood added.
“And that’s why a lot of doors are sealed with a sealant that will hold water for as long as possible.”
How water and humidity affect the durability of a home article A home has to be insulated.
That means that a home has a ceiling and a window that can’t touch the outside of the home.
If a window is exposed to a lot or rain, it’s more likely to leak.
And that means a lot more moisture gets sucked into the home than it would if the window was covered in a wood frame or plastic cover.
So if a window does leak, it will get a lot less water.
That makes a lot higher-quality windows much more likely, Wood explained.
“If you put a very strong sealant on the window, the moisture is very concentrated inside the window,” he said.
That concentrated moisture will soak into the wood and cause it to deteriorate.
Wood said a window can’t just fall off a window.
That’s because the window’s hinges can’t open and close the same way the window would.
Instead, a wood panel will have to hold the moisture while it dries and the window stays put.
A wood panel is not the only material that’s prone to water retention.
“Even the insulation we put in our windows is prone to moisture loss,” Wood explained, explaining that when the insulation dries, it can be very soft and can lose its ability to hold moisture when the humidity drops.
The result is a window’s appearance may be more wrinkled and dulled, as well as a lack of shine.
“All those things cause moisture to evaporate, so you have less shine and less transparency,” Wood continued.
“So when the window starts to go down, that’s going to be a very, very, unpleasant experience for a homeowner.
It can also be very, much worse than a window, because it’s a little less transparent and the surface of the window is not as water resistant.”
The water resistance, Wood pointed out, is the reason that window insulation can’t be used in a home that doesn
