Industry Overview

The timber frame industry in North America has been a “renaissance” movement that began in the 1970’s in New England and has now spread throughout the continent.  There are hundreds of professional timber frame companies of various sizes producing thousands of homes annually. Custom residential is the backbone of the industry, however, there are growing commercial applications for both the timber frame and the structural insulated panels (SIP’s).  Some recent examples of SIP jobs done by other sales reps are Tim Horton’s (Grande Prairie) and McDonald’s restaurant (Dawson Creek).  The SIP technology is gaining popularity as consumers look for construction and energy efficiency improvements on the standard wood frame and batting insulation wall assembly.

Industry wide numbers are difficult to find as competitors do not necessarily report annual sales to an industry council.  However, it is common knowledge that this is a multimillion dollar business within the custom home and light commercial markets.
