Most frequent questions and answers

Is a Timber Frame Extension Cheaper than Other Systems?

Generally, yes. The cost of a timber frame extension is accepted as being less than a traditionally built extension primarily because there are fewer labour hours involved.

Can we access the extension during construction?

We encourage our clients to see the progress throughout. Safety is vitally important on site therefore we will make you aware of any potential hazards or restrictions to access.  The team leader is always available for your benefit so do not hesitate to consult him on any requirements.

Is it weather dependant?

Yes. The team leader will be there throughout the project. He will be accessible at any time of the day and will check in with you at the end of each day to talk through progress.

How does payment work?

Our usual terms of payment are a weekly sum calculated on a schedule of costs usually spread over an agreed 7-week period.

Does it have a vast range of external finished?

The great thing about timber framing is that there are many different types of exterior finishes from brick work to metal cladding. This can be chosen before the project starts as it needs to be included within the regulations and drawings. It can be changed but can save a lot of time and money choosing your exact finish before the timber frame is erected.

Is the quote a fixed price?

Yes, all quotes provided are fixed and content agreed with clients to ensure clear pricing.  There are no hidden costs.

How much will the return of investment be?

It’s really worthwhile speaking to local estate agents for a more accurate idea, but you can approximate on adding between 5 and 10 per cent to the value of your home with a single storey kitchen extension; double storey extensions with an extra bedroom may add up to 20 percent
