Walling Methods and Materials - Timber

In comparison to other methods of timber construction, such as post and plank, timber frame is by far the most common in Worcester and across Hereford and Worcester. Brick, stone and even plastered wattle and daub commonly feature in box-frame houses. Defects and maintenance issues associated with timber walling are varied, and some can be costly to fix. Points to consider when assessing defects of such houses range from rotten softwood window frames to serious warping of unseasoned timber beams. Benefits of timber-frame construction are numerous, such as -

  • Carbon neutral
  • Can be easily recycled
  • Potentially lower overall maintenance costs
  • Precision crafted timber elements lead to less settlement and movement of the structure over time
Many examples of square box-frame properties can be found in and around Worcester, but the style is less frequently seen in Eastern and Northern England. Many buyers will appreciate the historical character of an exposed timber house, but they should also be aware of the upkeep requirements which a Home Buyers Survey in Worcester can confirm.

Brick in Worcester

Worcester Walling Materials - Brick

Modern methods has made brick manufacture far more efficient that in earlier centuries, yet the material has always been popular. In addition to being more weather-resistant than stone, brick is far cheaper. Mortar composition should also be considered when considering the quality of a wall. Cement mortars, for example, are suitable for damp areas, or where the wall will be under greater stress, such as an archway. Brick walls may be less susceptible to some conditions than timber or stone, but they nevertheless can succumb to a broad spectrum of defects. Particularly old or poor quality bricks will degrade, but the appropriate resolution will vary. If the home is a listed building, matching materials and even construction methods usually must be used.
