Are timber frame homes fire safe?

Timber frame houses are completely fire-safe! Timber frame buildings meet all the fire safety standards as laid out by the National Irish Building Regulations.

Home insurance companies do not differentiate between timber frame and masonry forms of house construction. In-fact, as timber frames do not bend or flake at high temperatures, a timber framed building structure loses it’s structural integrity at a slower more controlled rate.

Timber frame homes are for this reason considered by many to be the safest form of building construction.
