The Benefits of Investing in a Traditionally Built Brick Home.

10th November 2023

You might think that all new homes are built with bricks, but surprisingly, that’s not the case. Since the 1970s, some housebuilders have opted for cheaper, quicker timber-framed building methods.

What exactly are timber-framed homes?

Essentially, they’re factory-made structures shipped to the site and erected, then surrounded by brick to give the appearance of a brick-built home. However, they have a lifespan of about 50 years, which is significantly less than a traditional brick home’s durability.

Why we don’t build timber-framed homes:

We are a family owned and run house builder with over 40 years’ experience, which means we understand that when you are investing in a home, you need to ensure that is should provide a secure, energy-efficiency and sturdy foundation for you and your family to enjoy for generations to come.

Our homes are designed to save you money on energy bills with excellent insulation and to withstand the test of time thanks to our use of traditional construction methods of good old fashioned bricks and mortar, ensuring that you make the most of your investment.

Plus, we believe that you cannot put a rush on quality built, traditional methods when it comes to one of the biggest purchases of your life. So, our homes are not rushed, they are crafted and constructed to last.

What are the benefits of choosing brick over timber for your home?

  • Low maintenance: Bricks are a durable, long-lasting material that doesn’t rot or degrade over time compared to timber. If any damage does occur, repairs are cost-effective and easy to source and complete.
  • Energy Efficient: Bricks can retain heat for longer, keeping your home warm and cosy. Conversely, if your house is cool, it will stay that way for longer too.
  • Longevity: Brick houses have been around for centuries for a reason – they last! With proper upkeep and repairs, a brick home can stand strong for over a century.
  • Lower fire risk: When it comes to our customers safety, it’s our top priority when it comes to building homes. Opting for our traditionally built brick homes offers you and your family a much lower fire-risk.
