Can you tell when a building is made of Timber Frame?

HouseWe recently undertook a Homebuyers Report in Thatcham, where from the outside the building looked to be traditional brick and block construction. On going inside and inspecting the roof space, we soon realised that we were reporting about a timber frame building.

Modern timber frame buildings perform differently from traditional cavity contstruction properties and we were able to advise our client accordingly and explain the type of defects that can be anticipated with this type of construction.

Remember it is always worth asking a professional to cast their eye over a property prior to purchase, in order to find out exactly what type of construction it is and how it is built.
