Timber Framed Properties



With eco-friendly housing and environmental impact two of the key buzzwords in the property development industry at the moment, it is hardly surprising that timber framed properties have become the most widely used form of construction across the world.


There are countless advantages to using timber frame construction techniques over traditional methods, ranging from speed and efficacy of insulation to sustainability.


More than 70% of the world's population are housed in timber framed properties and this durable building material is especially popular in North America and Scandinavia where the majority of low rise properties are now constructed using this form of structure.


So why are timber framed properties achieving such popularity?

Benefits of Timber Framed Properties




Comfort


Timber framed housing is exceptionally energy efficient as it offers a higher thermal insulation rate than traditionally built properties.

This means that they are cheaper to heat during the cold winter months, making them the perfect choice for damp or cold environments.

Because they have no internal blockwork which is known to absorb heat, these houses can warm up rapidly and will not produce internal condensation on walls.

The benefit of this type of construction is that it is also cool in the summer, making them energy efficient all year round.

The excellent insulation properties of timber frames results in a home that is snug and comfortable to live in.

Quality


When you choose a timber framed property, you are guaranteed a high quality construction. Engineered and manufactured in controlled conditions,

these stuctures are subject to strict quality control procedures with precision and accuracy at the forefront of the building process.

Because these properties use a dry construction technique, no drying out period is required which means that

there will be no cracks due to shrinkage when the work is complete.


With timber framed houses, cost can be surely reduced due to its number of adavantages.



Reduced Cost


You can make big savings when you choose a timber framed property because of the shorter construction period required to complete the building process.

Unlike a traditionally constructed property, a timber framed home can be erected and waterproofed in just a few days,

with no stoppage time required in the event of inclement weather.Labour costs will therefore naturally be lower

when adopting this form of construction. Once your home is complete,

you will then save further due to lower heating

bills thanks to the excellent insulation properties.

Sound Insulation

Timber framed properties have excellent sound insulation properties, making them an excellent choice for family living.

Fire Safety

Although there have been some concerns regarding the safety of timber framed properties in the event of a fire, in fact it has been shown conclusively that this type of home is no more a risk than any other type of property.

Lightweight Construction

Because timber frames are much lighter than other construction methods, these types of homes can be built in areas where other types of home cannot be constructed. This makes them ideal for brownfield sites or other areas with tricky land conditions. Transportation is much easier.
