What are Timber Frames?
Timber frames support a system of panelised structural walls and floors constructed from small sections of timber stud work. The timber frame transmits vertical and horizontal loads to the foundations.
Timber frames are a natural insulator and can help reduce energy needs when used within windows, doors and floors.
A timber frame allows more space for insulation than a brick building, and as reference previously, wood also has naturally thermally insulating properties.
Their low thermal mass allows spaces enclosed by timber frames to heat up more quickly than masonry construction, however they will also tend to cool more quickly.
Where are Timber Frames Used?
In simple terms, a timber frame construction uses timber studs within the external structural wall to carry the loads imposed before transmitting them to the foundations. Timber frame buildings include the walls, floors and roofs, which are designed as a whole, coherent engineered structure.
Timber frames can be the most suitable choice if the structural shell is required quickly, if the ground conditions are particularly poor, or if the design does not include very large structural spans.
When it comes to garden landscaping, one of the first things that often comes to mind is timber frames. Timber frames are used to make garden structures like a shed, storage room, home office and much more.Order Timber Frames Today

Benefits of Timber Frames
They’re quick and relatively inexpensive to build. And as well as being cost-effective, timber frame buildings are also highly versatile, as they can be clad in almost any building material.
But the major appeal of timber frame buildings is that they have the potential to be much greener than other building types.Order Timber Frames
Timber Frame Materials
Timber frames are classed as either softwood or hardwood, depending on the type of tree the timber comes from. Timber frames from hardwoods tends to be more dense than softwoods, though there are exceptions.
Softwoods come from coniferous trees such as pine, fir, spruce and larch.

Timber Frame Treatment
The best way to protect and preserve wood, including timbers that have been tanalised or pressure-treated is to use a wood preservative.
Treating your wooden products should be treated as a priority, and depending on your local conditions and wood type this may need to be done from once every 3 months, to once every 12 months.
