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.
Steel is non-combustible, and will not bend or warp in fire.
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.
At Coloricio Homes, we offer a 50 year peace of mind guarantee on our steel frames.
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.
Timber is a cheaper building material than steel.
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.
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.
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.
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.
