Modern Timber frame homes feature a whole host of positive environmental credentials such as carbon capture, enhanced quality control, faster build times, reduced on-site costs, waste and labour.
Timber frame structures are precision-engineered, strong and durable. The build method relies on off-site prefabricated manufacture at our premises of the wall panels, floor, and roof panels. The timber frame structure once erected on site can then be externally clad in brick, wood, fibre cement board, rendered or tiled which will act as the decoration for the home as well as weather protection.
Speed of Construction
Over the years timber frame construction has been synonymous with speed. It’s a fast yet high quality build method. Using timber frame can speed up the build programme by about a third. With organisation, a three-bed house can usually be air- and water-tight within a few weeks. It also enables other trades to start work inside the property before the brickwork is complete. This makes for a more predictable build programme and can help reduce costs.
Advantages can include:
The building can be weatherproof in days after timber frame completion.
Timber frame homes are built from workshop premises made components and are more accurate with less potential for defects.
Ease of other trades like electrics, plastering and plumbing starting after timber frame completion
Easy integration into the programme of works
Timber Frame are more sustainable and therefore more eco-friendly than brick/block construction.
Timber Frame produces less waste, and any waste can be recycled.
Savings in construction and operational costs.

“PK Joinery has worked with us on our redevelopment of the former library in Prestatyn to create a new apartment block for Denbighshire Housing.
The works included the full joinery package for the 14 apartments and 2 retail units and were completed on-time and to an excellent standard.
The team worked closely with our site manager, dealing with unexpected changes, and working to our required health & safety standards. We look forward to working with them again in the future”.
Castle Green Homes have worked with PK Joinery on several projects. We have been delighted to find that all requests have been responded to in a timely manner and the representatives from PKJ have carried out the works to a high standard with a highly professional manor in an occupied home.
PK joinery were the joinery sub-contractor at one of our housing developments in North Wales. We found them to be extremely professional in all aspects of their works, with an exemplary service provided on both commercial and operational fronts. They adapted well to what was a challenging project completed throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and produced high-quality finishes to 160 new-build properties.
