Weatherproofing your roof

At Archer Carpentry, we’re passionate about using timber frames to create beautiful, functional buildings. But their benefits extend far beyond aesthetics. Timber frame construction offers exceptional resilience, particularly when it comes to roofing. Here’s why you should consider a timber frame approach for your next project:

  • Strength and Stability: Timber frames are engineered for strength. The interlocking beams and posts create a rigid structure that can withstand even strong winds and heavy snowfall. This translates to a roof that’s less susceptible to damage and provides superior peace of mind.
  • Lightweight Advantage: Compared to traditional brick and mortar construction, timber frames are significantly lighter. This translates to less stress on the roof structure, further enhancing its longevity.
  • Insulation Excellence: Timber offers natural thermal insulation properties. Combined with proper insulation materials, a timber frame roof can significantly improve your building’s energy efficiency, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.
  • Design Flexibility: Our skilled timber frame carpenters can design a roof that perfectly complements the overall aesthetic of your building. Whether you envision a pitched roof, a flat roof, or something more complex, timber frames offer the design flexibility to achieve your vision.
  • Speed of Construction: Timber frame construction is renowned for its efficiency. Pre-fabricated roof trusses can be quickly erected on-site, significantly reducing build times compared to traditional methods. This translates to cost savings and allows you to enjoy your new space sooner.
  • Expertise You Can Trust: Our team boasts experienced roof carpenters and timber frame carpenters. They understand the intricacies of roof construction and can ensure your project is completed to the highest standards, with a watertight and weatherproof finish.
