Vision Development, a Berkshire-based timber frame construction company, is proud to be an industry leader in the manufacture and erection of timber frame houses. There have been recent reports that the construction industry is experiencing a brick shortage and the largest listed brick maker in Britain has gone so far as to call the shortage “the lowest level in living memory”. In a time when traditional building materials are in short supply, timber frame construction is the ideal alternative for those looking to self-build.

In timber frame construction the frames themselves are the load bearing structure and are at least as strong as traditional brick and block construction.  External cladding (such as bricks, tiles or wooden cladding) is used to build the exterior is for decorative and protective purposes and does not form part of the load bearing structure.  Thus it is possible to be much more flexible in the design and construction of this external cladding (for example timber render panels instead of bricks).

External Cladding for Timber Frame Houses

Once the foundation of your home is completed, you can create beautiful external walls using Porcelanosa tiles.  Alternatives such as this are ideal in a time when bricks and building blocks are in high demand and short supply. There are endless opportunities to be creative and produce a design uniquely suited to you.  Porcelanosa tiles can provide a range of external cladding with finishes including brick, stone, rendering and wood effects.  We also have many other products for this purpose.

Whether you’re starting from scratch with no specific design in mind, or you’ve already got blueprints and simply need assistance along the way, Vision Development is here to help.
