Why Steel?

With Wolf Steel Framing supporting your home, we provide straighter walls and more architectural possibilities, as well as higher resistance to termites, fire, and anything else nature has in store.

Your steel-framed home is lighter, more durable, and more cost-effective in longer run because in most cases steel will be bit more than timber.

Steel frames are more resistant against flexing and warping, meaning your home stays looking like your home with straighter lines and finishes on your roof, ceilings, and walls.

Termites can’t eat steel

Termites, white ants, home-wrecking pests. Whatever you call them, they can be an absolute menace to many homes. Many timber-framed Victorian homes suffer termite damage that isn’t covered by insurance and repairs can cost well into the thousands. Just let these tiny troublemakers try and eat steel.

Fire Resistance

Wolf Steel Frames are made of noncombustible
material, using steel frames, significantly reduces the amount of flammable material in your home, this simplifies the design of elevated flooring, verandahs, carports and architectural features in bushfire-prone areas. Steel framing is always fully earthed, reducing the potential for concealed ignition leading to building fires.

Solid Foundations

Steel can boast the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any current residential building material. This means your home and its foundations can stand up to stronger winds, fiercer storms, and even the occasional lightning strike.

50 Year Structural Warranty

A steel frame home is in it for the long haul. Building a steel frame home is an investment for the future. We at Wolf back it up with a 50-year structural warranty* that your home stands the test of time.
