timber frames and trusses

Frames and Trusses

Timber frames and trusses are very common in Australian homes. As well as manufacturing frames and trusses to standard sizes, it is possible to customise the frame or truss to use bigger timber sizes or smaller spacing. Frames and truss suppliers can provide these for any home because whether it is a simple or complicated design, roof trusses are engineered with precision equipment and are extremely flexible in design, so can be made to suit your project’s unique plans.

Pre-fabricated frames and trusses can save time and money, call us to discuss your plans and we can source all your frame and truss needs to order, or come down with your house plans, and have a chat about your design ideas.

Pre-fabricated frames are delivered on-site, making installation quick, simple and hassle-free, reducing time and labour costs. Roof trusses are a cheaper alternative to conventional roofing. We only use the required timber when building trusses, and there is no wastage on-site. All frames and trusses sourced through Gooding Timber and Hardware meet high engineering and safety standards and are built to withstand, where needed, the demands of Australian weather conditions.

Timber frames and trusses are predominantly made from plantation-grown pine softwood, which has been kiln-dried and sized to prevent shrinking or warping. Traditionally, timber frames and trusses have been made using untreated timber however pesticide treatments such as those used in Bluepine have been introduced in recent years. These treatments are considered a more cost-effective and natural way to frame your home, as the pine is treated using organic insecticides, such as those used in fly spray.

No matter if you have brick, stone, rammed earth, steel or timber as your main house construction, timber trusses will enhance the living space. Whether you’re a first time owner-builder or a construction company Gooding Timber and Hardware offer top quality frames, trusses and all the building supplies you’ll need to complete your entire project, at very competitive costs.

Building Tips

  • Plan in Advance

    Any renovation big or small needs planning in advance including a renovation budget. A budget is an essential tool that will give you a clear idea of what you can afford to spend on your building project or home improvement. Keep costs under control by keeping things simple. Choosing standard

  • One job at a time

    Break down big jobs into small jobs, your renovation doesn’t have to be completed in one go. If your overall project seems overwhelming either for your lifestyle or your budget just take things one job at a time.

  • Tracking down a Tradie

    It pays to plan carefully for the availability of skilled tradespeople. Many parts of the building industry virtually shut down in January for example, so you could find it hard to track down a tradie.

  • Major renovations take time

    There are some TV programs that make replacing a kitchen or adding an extra bedroom look quick and easy, but don’t fall for that big jobs and major renovations take time and money.

  • Building inspection

    Arrange a building inspection before you start renovating, a professional building inspection will confirm if your home is structurally sound and able to support your planned improvements, particularly if your project involves adding a second storey.

  • Labour costs

    Labour costs are likely to eat up a solid chunk of your renovation budget – usually around 30% of the total expense so shop around for quotes.

“Hey boys …. I’ve got a couple of jobs in Gympie and Craigburn. “Can you deliver my timber?” That’s the problem I threw at the Gooding Timber yard and sure enough, they came through with flying colours. It’s pretty hard to get that type of service anywhere, especially when the timber yard is on the Gold Coast and I want my materials up country. They don’t mind a challenge … It’s easy to see why I’ve dealt with them since 1992 for all my timber supplies, AND … there’s no way I’d go anywhere else. Thanks again Goodings, Rob Heather
