Our Services and FAQ
Considering a timber frame for your next new build or extension?
Timber Frame has huge benefits, due to the vast majority of the product manufactured off-site in a controlled environment. The project is then delivered on-site on an agreed date and erected quickly speeding up the process of the build. Typically a 3 bedroomed house could go from foundation level to the roof fully braced and ready for covering within 5-7 days. This has huge benefits to the follow on trades and overall build time.
What can Bentley Timber Frames Offer?
From the point of placing an order with us, our designers will create preliminary drawings from your architectural designs. Our structural engineers will take care of all structural elements of the timber frame structure and we will provide you with line and point loads for the foundations.
The preliminary drawings will be approved by yourself and your architect/project team prior to us manufacturing anything, any changes you wish to make at this point can be quickly rectified and new drawings issued.
Once fully approved, the timber frame superstructure will be manufactured by ourselves and any required floor joists and trusses ordered from our trusted suppliers.
