Walling Methods and Materials - Timber

Cruck and box-frame are the most frequently occurring examples of timber walling in Rotherham. In cruck construction, the A-frame is constructed on the ground, then raised, whereas the posts of a box-frame house may be held in position with stays or braces while the frame is built. Rotherham homebuyers should consider the cost of upkeep for timber-walled houses, particularly if the house is older. The choice of wall material can have a fundamental impact on the defects and problems likely to affect a house. Fortunately, there are several advantages to houses built with timber. These include -

  • Low thermal mass, properties can be heated faster than stone or brick
  • Higher thermal insulation
  • High-quality craftsmanship and precision engineering
  • Effectively carbon neutral
  • Timber can be recycled
  • Potentially lower overall maintenance costs
Cruck frames are quite common in the region, and may consist of a pair of timbers, arching from the base to the roof, or one of several other configurations. Your surveyor can advise as to the upkeep implications of cruck construction.
