Timber Framed Joinery
A&S Carpentry specialises in the manufacture and making of timber framed buildings in Kent. We supply and construct houses and apartments for a wide range of customers throughout the Southeast – for private developers and building contractors and local government.
We manufacture prefabricated timber frame buildings at our workshop in Kent, these are then supplied direct to the building site and is constructed by our CSCS/CPCS accredited installers.
Manufactured under factory controlled conditions, timber frame components are an engineered product, and the composition is especially accurate. This simplifies the erection process at your location, with accurate pieces fitting together just as they were designed and specified.
Light to Transport
Timber frames are robust, they’re light and easy to transport. This makes timber framed buildings especially suited to isolated sites and for building sites where ground conditions wouldn’t normally permit heavy construction.
Quick to Construct
In mild conditions, timber framed buildings are wind and water-proof within 2-3 days and can be completed within 8-10 weeks. After this period other trades can carry on with their work no matter what weather which is a bonus in avoiding delays due to our changeable climate.
Timber frame homes are highly insulated as standard, they’re far more energy-efficient than existing building regulations require. This means that timber frame properties are economic to run, warm-up quickly and retain their heat for longer.
Strong & Durable
Timber framed buildings in Kent are long-lasting, comparing well with all other standard types of modern day construction. Lasting at least the 60 years+ which is the requirement of insurers, banks and building societies.
Easy to Finance
Timber frame construction is recognised by building societies, banks and insurance providers for borrowing purposes. Indeed, most financiers offer you stage payment plans specially created for self-builders.
We sometimes think timber frame is only for low-rise construction e.g. bungalows. While timber frame is well suited to this, you can use it for virtually any method of house design, from cosy holiday cottages to multi-story apartments, and it can be clad in any standard finish: tile, timber, render, stone or brick. Everywhere in the world timber frame is used to construct beautiful and exciting homes.
