Timber is revered for its appearance and durability, and may be desired to reflect the architectural detail of your property.
Having a timber frame will require more maintenance. The investment however, is often deemed worthwhile as timber provides a beautiful mellow colour, classic grain and sheer strength that can be enjoyed for many years. Availability is in either Hardwood or Softwood timber. Although Softwood is the slightly less expensive option of the two it is more prone over the years to rot. Hardwood has greater long term durability and is by far the more attractive option.
