On the other hand, many remain loyal to timber frames and there are plenty of good reasons for it. Before you decide which type of frame to use, you’ll want to be aware of these relevant points first.






Make sure your contractor is an expert in screwless frames and they are able to construct it without obvious welds in between joints to maintain the aesthetic properties of the design.


















Although the price of steel and other related materials for building frames have considerably lowered over time, its construction cost is still far pricier than using  timber. Building steel frames demand more manpower and heavy equipment while timber can be constructed  in a simpler manner.



In general, steel frames are ideal for their durability, accuracy and streamlined looks. They’re perfect for structures that are built for long-term use with less possibility of modification in the future. However, for new families who plan further house improvements with a possibility of altering the structure, timber is a better option - as it’s easier to manage.
