Why Do You Need a Timber Structure Specialist?

Are you planning to build a garden cabin, wooden pergola, garden office or a treehouse for your children? You may be considering building it yourself, but this is a large undertaking that requires the expertise and skill of a professional timber structures expert.

Whether you are creating more space for storage, a place to work or an environment you can enjoy in your downtime, consulting a timber structure specialist is vital. These specialist carpenters can review your timber structure design and then erect it safely, avoiding pitfalls you might not have foreseen yourself. This ensures the structure is both safe and fit for purpose.

What Does a Timber Structure Specialist Do?

The services provided by timber structure specialists are wide-ranging and can include:

  • Providing advice on building permits and legal considerations: Before you start to build a garden cabin or any other timber structure, you should check your local laws and regulations. In the UK, you must acquire approval before building a new structure. This may require planning permission or, at the very least, a building permit. There will be strict guidelines on the height of your structure to ensure that it does not overlook your neighbour’s garden and cause privacy issues. There are also guidelines surrounding the depth of the foundations during excavation, as well as a minimum distance your garden cabin or building must be from any neighbouring properties. If in doubt, it’s best to speak to your local council, where someone will be able to offer you with advice. When you make your application for a building permit, a timber structures contractor will also inform you of local legal requirements and ensure they are adhered to during the construction process.
  • Determining the correct foundation: Once planning has been approved, your timber structures specialist will decide which foundation is best for your garden cabin, garage or building. This may include a plastic shed base, cement or timber. The type, size and intended use of your structure will determine the type of foundation you need. Larger garden cabins for outdoor workshops, offices or summerhouses, for example, will require a concrete foundation, which will provide a solid and long-lasting support for the structure. For a smaller garden shed that’s intended for storing bikes, tools and garden furniture, a plastic shed base will suffice. Either way, once the base is in place, it’s time to start thinking about the timber frame structure.
  • Different types of timber: This is where an expert’s knowledge really comes into play. Not all types of wood are the same. Making the wrong choice could result in the wooden walls of your cabin cracking, swelling or even shrinking. This is even more pertinent in the summer and winter, when seasonal changes can play havoc with certain types of timber. It might turn out that an oak timber structure, for example, is the best for your particular garden due to a variety of factors. A timber structure specialist can not only ensure the most durable and high-quality material is used, but also that it’s appropriately treated to last.
  • Timber structure building: Constructing a garden cabin is a labour-intensive task that could take several days. Engaging the services of a timber structure specialist will save you time, effort and even money — as building your new space in the wrong way could lead to you spending money on a professional to repair it. Using care and precision, your contractor will construct and fit the various components of your timber building, including doors and windows. The roof structure is incredibly important and must be watertight to prevent leaks and pitched correctly to enable rain water run-off. The weight of the roof must also be considered so as not to compromise or put pressure on the body of your cabin, garage or shed. Your contractor may also engage the services of an electrician to provide lighting and power.
  • Aftercare: A timber structure expert will provide you with aftercare advice, including which paint and wood protection treatment you should regularly apply to ensure durability and longevity. Wood is a natural material that is susceptible to mould and algae, and so it requires ongoing care.

Timber structure repair

Hello, Im looking for 2 x carpenters to install a decorative ceiling design in the reception area of an office in Nottingham starting this Monday till Friday in NG15. Job will basically be cutting and attaching timber beams onto fixings overhead using an existing racking system in accordance to plans. As this is the focal point on entry to the office building attention to detail is an absolute must. The ideal contractors must have over 10 years experience, own all their own tools for the job, valid CSCS cards (not essential), own insurances, and an eagle eyed precision around high end furniture, as we only have the exact amount of beams needed, so do not have much room for error. This will be charged out as a set day rate of £200 per person based on a 9hr day. If this sound like something you could accomplish and the dates work for you then I would love to hear from you. Please get in touch for more details and pictures of past phases of other floors on the project to get an understanding of what will be expected. I would be more than happy to call and discuss in more detail. No time wasters please! Many thanks in advance. Shane info@equipped2fit.com
