Timber frame construction

Timber Frame Construction

This type of construction has many benefits which include cost and time line to completion. These benefits explain the explosive growth in this type of construction which is expected to replace traditionally built homes by 2010. Timber frame have a life expectancy of 60 years but where moisture can invade the cavities this figure can be drastically reduced. While design can follow established  parameters and prefabricated components are manufactured to the highest standard an increasing number of faults are being identified which may reduce the life expectancy and resultant re sale values.

These faults have been seen throughout the world in our inspections and revolve around the following issues:

 

·       Changing climates and humidity problems

·     Poor site workmanship during construction phase

·        Poor supervision during construction

·       Vapour barriers wrongly installed or designed

·       Leaks from internal sources

·        External leakage points

·        Self regulation in construction

·         Poor cavity ventilation

·        Failure to identify leakage points in time

We provide various pressure, moisture and leak testing services which are often coupled with mould investigation and associated health concerns.
