Modern timber frames are hard-wearing, energy efficient, and cost effective. They’ve become the most popular way to construct UK houses. Fencehouse Roof Truss Company specialises in the design and manufacture of timber frames for the construction and self-build markets. One advantage of a timber frame home design is it can be produced in the factory and delivered as a finished product to the build site.
All timber frames are designed using the latest CAD software and manufactured at our state-of-the-art factory. Our precision engineering guarantees a high level of accuracy, simplifying on-site construction and saving time and budget.
A timber frame house will look the same from the outside as a one constructed from masonry, as external cladding and finishes are applied to both, using bricks, stone, wooden cladding or rendering. But total project costs compared to a masonry build can be less because factory fabrication is fast and predictable.
Timber frame construction is a method of building which relies on a timber frame as a basic means of structural support. An economical and efficient method of construction, timber frames offer quality, an easier and faster build, simplified on-site construction, and greater choice and flexibility to the customer.
Timber Frame structures offer huge benefits over traditional masonry construction, including:
- High levels of quality and accuracy
- A construction process that does not depend on the weather or seasonality
- Less unpredictability and more control during the construction process
- A product that can easily exceed Building Standards
- An improved level of Health & Safety due to not having on site construction
- A more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly building process
- Outstanding value for money through the speed and ease of erection, reducing the build cost
- Increased satisfaction from customers from:
- More design flexibility to cater for their needs
- Lower household bills due to increased thermal properties
- Excellent structural protection against fire and flood
- More choice than other product alternatives.
