Why Timber

Why Timber?

Lovely for Living

People prefer to live with timber.  It’s colour, warmth and grain is visually appealing and timber is the best natural insulator for homes and commercial buildings, helping to keep them warm in winter and cool in summer.

Other than the clear environmental benefits why should you choose timber?

Assured performance.

 Timber is an age-old product that has the ability to be improved even more with modern technology.

Better with age.

One of the great benefits of a natural timber floor is that it actually looks better as it ages and develops character, plus it can be re-finished and brought back to 'as new' several times throughout its life.

Cost effective.

Timber species and grades can be selected to suit your design and budget requirements.

Fast to build.

Timber buildings can be erected and completed in a third of the time it takes to build the same structure in brick and mortar.  They are also easier, cleaner and faster to alter and extend.

Acoustic performance.

Using careful design timber delivers excellent sound insulation properties. 

Fire performance.

The insulating properties of timber can provide built-in fire resistance.
