The province of West Kalimantan has many cultural heritage buildings that spread across 12 districts/cities. Those cultural heritage buildings come from three ethnic groups who live in the scattered settlements of West Kalimantan, namely Malay, Dayak, and Chinese. Both historic and traditional buildings are buildings with the main structure made of wooden materials that encounter weather and degradation due to natural conditions or organisms’ influence. This article is a preliminary study to compare several research results on the conservation of wooden structures to traditional dwellings as the preservation efforts of cultural heritage architecture in West Kalimantan. Traditional houses in West Kalimantan are generally tens to hundreds of years old and established 1 - 3 meters above the ground with poles foundation sunk to a water basis. Because the structure stands buildings on the side of a river with moist soil conditions, it is directly exposed to building sections to temperature and weather. This scientific article is developed by employing the text-in-context method with the qualitative paradigm by compiling the research results related to the investigation of organisms that destroy buildings and cultural heritage structures made of wood. The researcher’s configuration of a result data set is assembled into the findings’ integrity to answer the research objectives and questions. As a result, wooden materials of cultural heritage in West Kalimantan should be preserved by the chemical compounds, local material of bio pesticides, and traditional methods to preserve decayed structures and ornaments. Friendly preservation by environmental improvement and treated substitute material is also effective in refining the wooden structures.
