Having a timber frame constructed in a factory environment will provide higher quality of build through the building process. Energy efficient homes must have a very high level of accuracy to maintain an airtight structure.
While efficient thermal insulation is undoubtedly the key elements in preventing heat loss within a home, problem areas exist at the joints where surfaces such as walls, roofs, windows and doors meet. In order to achieve the A3 BER ratings for our timber frame houses, our team at QTF Homes have to ensure that all such joints are airtight to prevent all draughts that may enter the structure. Air tightness is accomplished by ensuring that all joints are adequately sealed to prevent air and vapour permeating between the insulated layers, which as well as energy loss can lead to problems such as condensation and damp mould.
At QTF Homes we are committed to promoting environmentally friendly, sustainable houses. All of the timber used in the construction of your house is sourced from sustainable forests. By choosing QTF Homes for your project, you have a partner dedicated to providing a home to enjoy for generations to come. Timber frames are easier to heat and keep warm and can offer you savings of as much as 70 per cent on energy costs. Because timber frame is so design flexible, it’s easy for you to incorporate your own ideas. Creating your own design is fun and extremely satisfying – and it ensures that your new home has all the facilities and features that you and your family require.
