Main Benefits Of Building With Timber Frame:

Lower heating bills
Timber materials are natural insulators and when installed for windows, doors, and floors, they help control the temperature indoors to maintain a comfortable living environment. As they naturally have thermal insulating properties, they reduce energy consumption for heating or cooling, boosting a completed home’s overall energy efficiency.

Durability and flexible design
A timber frame is highly durable and strong. With high-quality installation they can last for centuries, whilst using timber as the main building material also gives you endless design possibilities.

Cost effective with easy, fast installation
As timber materials are so lightweight, flexible and versatile, they are easier and quicker to build and results in lower costs and faster occupancy.

Natural material for ecology and sustainability
Choosing a timber frame is not only ecological and sustainable as a renewable building material but it is environmentally friendly. As a non-toxic, natural material, no chemicals are released into the air to compromise people’s health or have a  negative impact on the environment.
