What can you expect from timber frames?

Timber Frames are structures which use heavy timbers that are jointed by pegged mortise and tenon joints. Originally created and commonly used by the Germans, the Americans have adopted this way of building their homes. Now timber frames are available as an alternative to bricks in the UK as well and this provides many advantages to traditional brick-built houses. The best way to go about building your home out of timber frames is to work closely with architects and builders to create bespoke designs which will work for you whether it be for smaller residential properties or large commercial developments. One great reason they are so popular with developers is that they are extremely quick to build. Timber frames are typically built in advance, off site so accuracy is another strong bonus they have to offer.

Too many times, mistakes happen on site and the costs and time to rectify has huge consequences on both the budget and timescale of construction projects.

What advantages do Timber Frames offer you?

Timber frames offer many advantages over their brick counterparts. Firstly, timber frames are quicker to build and save you nearly one third of the amount of construction time. Timber frames are also not dependent on good weather like brick enabling you to get the property water tight in a matter of days. As the drying out time with timber frames is vastly reduced compared to brick, your builder can get on with the internal finishes.

Overall timber frames are much lighter in weight compared to building a house of bricks and this is especially helpful as some ground beneath certain sites makes building extremely difficult. As timber frames are built off site there is more accuracy in fulfilling the order. When building on site under tougher conditions, inaccuracies often occur. Lastly, timber frames are more environmentally friendly.
