While our 25-year guarantee against termites ensures your timber frame a lifespan of at least 25 years, they’re known for their longevity, and generally last for much longer.
A home constructed with a Trueform timber frame is carefully designed with Mitek 2020 software and manufacturing equipment. The mechanically graded timber is then cut and assembled to perfection, exceeding Australian standards. Our timber frames come in two options: H2 termite proof treated pine, or renewable, reliable, natural, non-treated plantation radiata pine.
A Trueform timber frame’s lifespan is extended by the fact that they’re created using top construction techniques and with regular, ongoing post-construction maintenance. This enables them to have a lifespan of over 100 years.
Humans have been using timber frames in their homes for thousands of years. Here in Australia, we’re seeing timber frame lifespans exceed 100 years. In Europe, homes are still in use which were constructed using timber frames during the medieval times, while in India, buildings dating back to 200BC were constructed using teak timber with bamboo peg joinery and have stood the test of time.
