Benefits of Timber Frame Extensions

Speed of Construction

A timber frame extension can be erected on site in just one day, dependent on size. Work can proceed in all weather conditions, reducing labour costs and organisation of the site.

Heat Efficiency

A Timber Frame extension is 2-3 times warmer than a traditionally built equivalent. It is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer due to its insulation factors, giving the benefit of greatly reduced fuel bills.

Fire Performance

Building Regulations have very exacting standards covering the safety in the event of a fire. Fire experts are satisfied that Timber Frame construction presents no different risk than conventional homes.

Timber Treatment

The timber used in our extensions is VAC pressure treated to ensure your home has complete protection from insect infestation and the like.

Sound Efficiency

Another advantage of Timber Frame construction is the high sound insulation value. Surveys by the Building Research Establishment showed 99% of walls tested consistently achieved the performance standard.

Choice of External Finishes

Timber Frame construction gives complete flexibility of choice of external finish, e.g. Block, brick work, timber cladding, rendering stone or plastic.

Interior Decor

There is no 'drying out' period, so painting and decorating can commence immediately.

Environmentally Friendly

The timber used is high quality sourced from managed forests with replanting programmes from countries such as Ireland, Scandinavia and Canada.

Badger Timber Frames can also supply you with an energy efficient, weather-proof kit to be constructed by your own professional tradesmen if you prefer.
