6 reasons why you should choose steel over timber for your home

Marketing

TR Homes exclusively use Australian made TRUECORE® steel, comprised of zinc, aluminium and magnesium, for the manufacturing of its frames and trusses in all of its houses, ensuring a high quality product every time.

So why choose steel for your home? We've put together 6 very good reasons!

1. Steel is termite proof

More than 1 in 5 homes are damaged by termites. Steel, however, is termite-proof. It’s another reason why TR Homes offer a 10 year structural warranty compared with the mandatory 6 year warranty.

2. Steel is environmentally friendly

The light weight of steel house framing, combined with its design versatility and flexibility, means a TR Home can be built offsite at one of our facilities in Australia with very minimal site impact. Steel is a renewable resource and one of the most recycled materials in the world. It is 100% recyclable.

3. Steel is non-corrosive

The TRUECORE® steel that TR Home frames are made from has a protective zinc/aluminium alloy coating which prevents them from rusting. Our frames are backed by the strength of a 50 year warranty from BlueScope.

4. Steel is safe and secure

The TR Homes’ unique engineered framing system attaches every component together and is then attached to the concrete floor slab. This has excellent wind-loading qualities, ensuring our homes are built with strength giving you peace of mind in severe weather conditions. All steel framed TR Homes are earthed, making them completely safe in the event of a lightning strike or faulty wiring.

5. Steel is straight and true

Unlike timber framed and brick constructed homes, steel framing will not shrink, twist or warp. TR Homes’ Framecad system ensures precision accuracy with all angles.

6. Steel is non-combustible

A TRUECORE® steel frame will not ignite, burn or contribute to heat, smoke or deadly gases. Steel retains its integrity up to 400-500 degrees Celsius whereas timber frames will ignite at 280 degrees Celsius.

So when you come to the decision of what type of home is best for your family, consider the benefits and peace of mind that steel brings.
