Mythbusting Timber Frame Construction

"It’s more difficult to get a mortgage"

None of the major lending institutions differentiate between modern timber frame construction and brick and block.

"Timber frame homes have a short lifespan"

In order to obtain a mortgage, the house has to have a minimum lifespan of 60 years, which timber frame provides.

"Won’t a timber frame house rot?"

In order for timber to rot it has to have a moisture content in excess of 20% for a prolonged period, but with modern building methods, Building Regulations and a reasonable degree of property maintenance this should never be an issue.

"Is a timber frame house a fire risk?"

As with all construction types, Building Regs have to be fully complied with, which includes fire protection to the structural timber frame. The architect/designer will specify materials that reduce the potential for fire ignition, limit the spread of fire and stop the passage of hot gasses and smoke.

"Do chartered surveyors put a lower valuation on timber frame houses?"

RICS does not apply a reduced valuation to a timber frame house; indeed there is a school of thought that because of their energy efficiency they should attract a premium.
