5 Good Reasons Why Timber should be used in your home.

There is something about timber in home construction. Is it the natural quality of Timber that gives a ‘home’ feel to your home? Whether it be the timber frame construction or the finish of the architraves. Tapping along the wall till you find a stud for that picture hanging nail! The slight creak and ‘give’ of a timber stair, the feeling of a timber handrail.  Or the look of a beautiful timber post. Whether you like the ‘look’ of timber, or just the feel; timber has and always will have a major place in Australian home construction!

  1. Timber has unmatched natural Aesthetic Qualities both visual and sensory
  2. Timber has Acoustic and Thermal benefits
  3. Timber is a totally Recyclable product
  4. Timber is Stronger than Steel. Timber’s combination of strength and resiliency allows it to absorb shock and heavy loads, a benefit over many alternative structural products.
  5. Timber is Carbon Storage, every tree that grows and is harvested for construction leaves space for a new tree to grow storing more carbon.
