  2. Timber provides a safe, tranquil and healthy living environment as it does not conduct electricity and has no magnetic properties.
  3. Erection time is far shorter than other building methods.
  4. Excellent for Clay areas, Save On foundation costs.

The choice of external and internal finishes provides more choice than traditional construction approach.

  1. Your home can be clad externally with a wide variety of materials, including: timber board moulded in traditional shiplap, half log or other wooden styles; fibre cement weather boards, as well as brick and stone veneers.
  2. Internal finishes range from the natural cottage look to more modern and luxurious finishes. Exotic and traditional woods such as Oregon Pine, Oak, Saligna and Meranti can be chosen for flooring, architraves, cornices, balustrading and staircase finishes.
  3. A solid log construction is also available for the "Rolls Royce" in Timber Construction.

Steel Roof Rooms Located in Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa

Steel has long been accepted as having the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any other building material and therefore our steel structures are ideal for high risk environments subject to rot, corrosion, high humidity, etc. While this method of building has been used in most leading countries such as the US, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand for decades, it has only recently been introduced and accepted in South Africa.
