How Long Is a House Built with Timber Frame Designed to Last?

When you choose to use a timber frame construction, whether it’s your home, commercial, industrial or agricultural project, you tend to get a lot of advantages. Compared to steel, timber is the preferred option in Australia for building homes and structures. Many years of experience have made certain that a house built with timber frame is safe, consistently high quality and well understood, especially by designers, builders and DIY’s.  

Timber frame is hard wearing and durable, which means that it can withstand pressure, wear and damage. When used on a home or project, most manufacturers give a “guarantee” that the frame will last for 25 to 30 years. However, in Australia, you can find timber framed houses that are over 100 years old. Perhaps, that is due to the fact that these house, besides being built with strong timber, were installed with termite barriers, to keep termites out, or it could be that the timber used has been treated to hold out against termite attack.
