A Great Business Partnership

 

In the summer of 2010 Texas Timber Frames and Lumber Link decided to work together in becoming the best specialty timber providers in South and Central Texas. For years, both companies looked at the same building plans and bid against one another. They were both attempting to provide the timber and any timber fabrication that came to their attention. However, in looking at what each company truly specialized in, it became obvious that working together would, in the end, be far better for each company than going it alone.

Texas Timber Frames procures timbers directly from the mill and orders only the highest grade materials available in any timber species. These timbers are ordered once a job is landed; they are not stocked in our facility to avoid shrinkage and checking of timbers over time. In addition, our mechanized fabrication process of unique mortise and tenon joinery add a level of quality and craftsmanship that is unmatched in our region at a surprising value to our customers.

Lumber Link, on the other hand, had a business model of quick, local procurement of timbers for timber packages and fabrication of rafter tails, corbels and other specialty lumber products. They were unable to provide the high quality mortise and tenon trusses and frames of Texas Timber Frames. With an incredible reputation for service and follow through, Lumber Link built a vast network of custom builders and architects in San Antonio and the Hill Country who trusted them alone with their timber needs.

In working together on a few projects, the leadership of both companies found that they shared the same core values: ensure customer service is at the forefront of your operation, reward your employees’ great work, and provide the best product at the greatest value. In bringing the two companies together in partnership, Lumber Link is able to offer a higher quality product to its customers and continue and build its reputation for excellence. Texas Timber Frames is able to wholesale truss fabrication and share its top-grade timber material with Lumber Link while building its reputation and scope of work. It is a great partnership that we are excited to see grow into new markets and ventures!

Timber windows are becoming an ever preferred choice for replacement windows when undertaking restoration projects. The aesthetic properties of timber windows are unequaled by pvc windows. Due to their normal appearance and the materials used, planning committees like timber windows to be started in places of architectural interest. Together with plenty of other heritage styles, the conventional sash sliding timber window is still made today. One of the advantages of timber windows are they can be totally customized letting them mix in with old products. This makes them the ideal choice for both extensions and replacement windows. Locking mechanisms, fasteners, handles and restrictors can all be supplied to match the type of window. They’re a solid investment choice because they will be able to be much more simply fixed than pvc, and as a consequence will have a much longer life – presuming they’re looked after in an appropriate way. Timber is a classic example of tolerable and reusable materiel requiring terribly low energy usage to process, and is thermally efficient in use.
