Corners are square, making it easier to keep positioning as per house plans. Steel frames don’t “creep” like timber frames that vary in size slightly.
Traditional timber frames are nailed together – nails are classified as a temporary joining method, and frames can easily pull apart. Steel frames are ideally suited for areas where there may be ground movement or storms, as the rivet/screw system does not come loose over time.
Steel frames are stable, not being affected by changes in humidity.
