The benefits of timber frame

A lightweight and powerful structure : Timber frame house building is five times lighter than concrete and 17 times lighter than metal. Advantage : cheaper foundations. This type of building associates, in the same wall thickness, insulation and structural strength. The thicker is the insulation, the better is the thermal performance..

A strong construction : As opposed to breeze block or stone, wood does not undergo any settlement or cracking. It resists extreme weather and conditions : extreme cold, snow, wind, sea... There is also a high flexibility, ideal in seismic areas.

A healthy and safe material : timber acts as a thermal and hygrometric regulator : neither condensation nor too dry atmosphere. It also has a strong sound absorption power, due to its low density, and excellent fire resistance.

A great building freedom : Timber frame enables the creation of open space (large spans), large windows... and allows all styles and all forms of construction, even curved or arched.
