Why the Thermolog ?

Stability

The Thermolog was specifically created to address the stability issues inherent in traditional timber log construction. The high quality of the materials we select as well as our innovative design make our product very stable, meaning that it will maintain its insulation value through the years and that settling is reduced to a minimum.

Stability

The components used to manufacture the Thermolog are stable upon arrival at our factories. While it is a living material, the white pine that Boreal has selected as part of the design of the Thermolog undergoes a stabilization process at the supplier. In this way, we ensure that it is of the highest quality.
