Val-U-Therm provides a winning solution for self-build projects as it offers a straightforward and cost-effective way to build a house that is exceptionally cheap to run. It combines the best of SIPS (structural insulated panels) and the best of timber frame technology.
Because of its flexibility Val-U-Therm can be adapted to a wide range of architectural styles and can therefore deliver self-build homes that reflect the style and meet the aspirations of their owners.
Key benefits for self builders include:
Speed of build
Val-U-Therm is manufactured off site in a modern factory and, like other timber frame systems, is quick to erect. About 40% of a total build can be supplied by the Val-U-Therm system – so it facilitates the completion of all internal and external work on time and on budget.
Val-U-Therm allows self builders to specify a wide range of exciting features and design elements – for example, large-span roofs and large picture window systems (that are still energy efficient). Val-U-Therm can be used on any plot size or location.
High-Performance, Green Home
Val-U-Therm delivers environmentally-friendly homes that take only a few kW’s to heat – removing the need for expensive, high-maintenance heating systems. This ‘fabric-first’ approach helps A-rated energy performance to be achieved cost-effectively.
Easy Management and Funding
In common with other timber-frame systems, Val-U-Therm can be seamlessly integrated into any self-build project – whether managed by client, architect or builder. Val-U-Therm also fits in with a whole host of self-build finance and mortgage packages.
