As a business owner, you might not have that much control over the building where your business is located, but if you do, you are probably trying to make sure that you make wise financial decisions when it comes to how you spend money on repairs and remodels.
As you probably are aware, there is a fine balance to strike between saving money and getting quality materials, but sometimes it might not be immediately obvious whether a building material is going to be good for the use you intend or not. Take for example green lumber.
Green lumber is lumber that hasn’t been dried in a kiln. This means that it has a higher moisture content than other types of wood. Using green lumber in a build, especially in climates that are cooler means that it can take a long time to dry, leading to mold and other issues. It is usually best to consult with someone experienced with using green lumber where you are located to find out whether or not it is something you should do.
