Timber Frame inspection

Build Inspections with Shepherds Joinery

We at Shepherds Joinery offer a quality inspection service to ensure your Timber Frame build has been built to the engineered specifications, also that the quality of the frame has been erected to a high standard before the client pays the final instalment.

We believe that if a customer is spending a lot of money on a new build, or an extension, then it should be completed to a high quality to avoid any major, expensive problems later.

During the inspection, we make sure:

  • The timbers are all correct with the engineered drawings that we will check.
  • The sole plate is fitted correctly on the slab.
  • All walls are plumb and the nailing schedule is adhered to.
  • The joist layout is done correctly to the engineered drawings and all noggins are in place.
  • To check the first-floor panels are perfectly in line with the ground floor panels.
  • All dimensions of rooms are correct.
  • To check all cavities are sufficient to buildings standards.
  • That insulation is correctly fitted.
  • To check the roof has been correctly constructed with all the over hangs for soffits and fascia are as per the drawings.
  • To check that the breather paper is fitted and any repairs are complete.
  • A full report will be provided to the client as an independent review.
