When it comes to choosing the right builder for your home, it pays to consider which type of house frame will suit you best. While both timber and steel frames have their pros and cons, here’s a comparison between the two so you can decide between steel and timber for your new home build.

Stronger & Straighter

Steel will give your home a straighter finish, especially along roof lines, ceilings and walls, which, when built from timber, can visibly flex and warp over time.

Fire Resistant

Steel is non-combustible, and will not bend or warp in fire.

Termite Proof

Termites are known as the 'silent destroyer', usually undetected, eating away at the depths of your home, until it’s too late.


Our steel is 100% recyclable and therefore benefits the environment.

50 Year Warranty

At Coloricio Homes, we offer a 50 year peace of mind guarantee on our steel frames.

Quick Build Time

Steel parts are pre-engineered to a specific design inside the manufacturing plant and are shipped out, ready to be erected. This speeds up construction time significantly, making it possible to complete large-scale projects in a matter of weeks.

Cost effective

Timber is a cheaper building material than steel.

Natural Material

Timber is one of the few natural building materials, timber is non-toxic, does not leak chemical vapour into the building and is safe to handle and touch.

Energy Efficient

Wood helps to minimise energy consumption in several ways. Life cycle of a product studies show that wood and timber frame houses significantly outperform steel and concrete.


Timber is a highly durable material. Some well-made wooden structures last for centuries. It is also easy and cheap to maintain compared to other materials.

Easy to Work

Timber is versatile and can be used in a wide variety of ways. Being light, it is easy to install and can be worked with simple equipment.

Quick Build Time

The speed of the build is quicker with timber. A timber frame can be partly pre-cut, modulated, and built to precision making build time much quicker.
