The major advantages of timber frame construction are its speed of erection, excellent thermal efficiency, sound performance and of course its considerable advantages over traditional building methods where environmental issues are concerned.
Timber frame is design flexible. It allows you great freedom in choosing the finished form of your home. It is also fully recognised by all financial institutions and building societies for institutional lending and by the National House Building Council (NHBC) for guarantee purposes.
In ideal conditions a house constructed in timber frame can be wind and weather tight in days and completed in as little as 6 - 8 weeks.
Similarly, accurate detailing ensures an acoustic performance notably better than that required by regulations.
The Structural Timber Association (STA) promotes the use of structural timber products and systems within the UK construction industry. Formerly known as the UK Timber Frame Association (UKTFA), the enlarged Association now includes suppliers of integrated hybrid solutions as well as traditional timber frame kits.
