Timber Block remporte une cinquième distinction en un an grâce à un système de construction révolutionnaire

Le 11 janvier dernier à Orlando à l’occasion du salon du bâtiment IBS, le plus important en la matière sur le continent,   Timber Block a remporté le premier prix de l’innovation 2017 de l’Association Nationale des Bâtisseurs (NAHB), grâce à son système de construction breveté R-36 pour la construction de maisons. Le premier prix pour l’innovation du NAHB est le cinquième qu’a reçu Timber Block au cours de la dernière année grâce à son système de construction révolutionnaire et écologique qui excède largement les codes de construction partout en Amérique du Nord.

Chaque année, le prix de l’innovation de la NAHB met en valeur des solutions novatrices et avant-gardistes dans l’industrie de la construction résidentielle. Le jury indépendant choisit les finalistes en fonction de critères liés à la conception, à l’innovation et à l’utilisation au quotidien tant pour le constructeur que pour le consommateur.

« C’est un grand honneur d’être reconnu par la plus haute instance en matière de construction résidentielle pour nos maisons écoénergétiques. Nous continuons de viser toujours plus haut et être le chef de file dans notre domaine », a déclaré Robert D’Astous, directeur construction et porte-parole de l’équipe Timber Block.

Révolutionnaires et écologiques, les maisons de bois d’ingénierie brevetées Timber Block dotées d’un facteur d’isolation R-36 ont remporté ce prix parce qu’elles élèvent les standards de l’industrie à un tout autre niveau de rendement. Alors que certains marchés se dirigent vers l’adoption d’un niveau d’isolation obligatoire R-30, le mur isolé doté d’un facteur R-36 a été conçu afin de conserver une longueur d’avance sur la compétition. Il procure aux propriétaires de maison un niveau de confort supérieur tout en réduisant leur empreinte écologique.

« Les propriétaires et les constructeurs tirent des bénéfices de nos maisons en bois sur mesure de plusieurs façons. Le système par panneaux s’installe au moyen d’une véritable méthode de construction pièce sur pièce qui procure une plus grande solidité à la structure; mieux encore, l’assemblage des murs exige moins d’une journée sur le chantier, permettant d’économiser du temps et de l’argent », a expliqué Mario Ferron, directeur des ventes et développement. L’entreprise mise sur la technologie pour soutenir et agrandir son réseau partout en Amérique du Nord. « À ces avantages s’ajoute une performance thermique supérieure de l’ensemble du bâtiment rendant chaque maison très efficace énergétiquement et permettant aux propriétaires de réaliser des économies supplémentaires sur leurs factures de chauffage et de climatisation. »

Toutes les résidences brevetées de Timber Block sont entièrement personnalisables, ce qui permet aux propriétaires de choisir une finition intérieure et une architecture sur mesure, du plus classique au plus contemporain. Ces récentes distinctions des plus hauts niveaux à l’international, fruit de l’innovation locale québécoise, renforcent la position de chef de file de Timber Block dans le domaine de la construction résidentielle.

En plus d’avoir reçu le premier prix de l’innovation, Timber Block a reçu trois prix d’excellence Jerry Rouleau de la NAHB et un prix Domus de l’APCHQ pour la maison unifamiliale de l’année.

Within a fairly small footprint we have great storage, a two car garage, and private guest space for friends and family.  Outstanding insulation, the low level of maintenance requirements and the beauty of wood made Timber Block the ideal choice for us.”

Club Lac Walfred Expected to Become Prime North America Destination

SEPTEMBER 15, 2015 – MIRABEL, QUEBEC – Timber Block Engineered Wood Homes has announced the launch of Quebec’s newest, most unique resort development of the year, which will benefit not only travelers looking for the prime spot to vacation, but the cottage owners as well.

Club Lac Walfred is a resort consisting of 17 Timber Block Insulated Log Cabin Homes, located north of Montreal, in Sainte-Marguerite-de-lac-Masson, in the Laurentian Mountains, not far from Mont Tremblant National Park.

Each cottage is built utilizing Timber Block’s system building process – a patented and proprietary product. The panelized construction ensures each home has R-30 wall insulation, which with a tight thermal envelope ensures each home is highly energy efficient, cozy and comfortable. In addition, the revolutionary technology enables each home owner to be reassured they will have one of the strongest, high quality home available – without the maintenance associated with most traditionally built log homes, such as checking and settling. Each cabin is sold turnkey for a competitive price, complete with all interior furnishings, including all appliances, furniture, bedding, cutlery, dishes, pool table, televisions and more.

The cottage owners belong to a home owner’s association, assuring all cottage owners will enjoy their cottage without the added hassle of owning a home. In addition, Club Lac Walfred is a resort open to vacationers. All cottage owners enjoy the financial benefits of a rental property when the cottage is vacant. 100 percent of net revenues are redistributed throughout the home owners – a project is the only one of its kind.

Timber Block General Manager Mario Ferron says the opportunity for those looking to live, vacation and own a profitable second home is made possible with this one-of-a-kind development. “Individuals looking to build a high end cottage with investment potential needed a better solution than what has been offered in the past. Club Lac Walfred is that solution. It is the best way to make country living, profitable.”

More than half of the Club Lac Walfred Cottages are built, completed and furnished, and are available to rent. A handful of cottages remain available for purchase.

TIMBER BLOCK announces partnership opportunity in select markets

August 31, 2015 – Timber Block USA, a designer, fabricator, and innovator in panelized home construction, is announcing a new release of dealership opportunities in select markets across the United States. Orders are approaching existing capacity and a strategic decision has been made to expand through select dealer/partnerships.

Timber Block formally entered the United States a few years ago when it opened its first corporate model home. In a little over two years, the U.S. operation has exceeded all of its goals. Specifically, sales performance over the last twelve months has demanded expansion.

Timber Block’s USA President, Craig Johnson says, “Residential construction growth is only part of the reason Timber Block continues to grow. Timber Block was fortunate enough to grow even during the residential housing collapse. However, just as we were able to grow during tough times our growth has continued, just on a much higher curve than in earlier years. Our people and our ability to generate quality leads, develop them, and then deliver on our promise, are the key drivers of our success.”

Timber Block will provide a protected sales territory, dealer training, lead generation and help with local marketing initiatives. In addition, Timber Block is committed to their dealer’s success, therefore every dealer/partner enjoys continuous support from the corporate office, in marketing, training, sales, and operations.

Timber Block continues to enjoy an enormous advantage in the home buildering industry, particularly in the wood, contemporary wood, and log home environment. Due to constantly evolving building codes related to increased energy efficiency, many log home companies are struggling to meet the insulation values required of them. Smart, educated consumers are discovering that Timber Block almost doubles existing code requirements even in their most basic homes. Timber Block homes have R-30 walls & R-40 roof insulation, which is standard in every home. In early 2015, an R-36 wall insulation option was launched to satisfy the demand for an even more robust insulation and structural option.

Timber Block USA President Craig Johnson says, “The new release of dealerships clearly indicates Timber Block’s desire to pivot toward an increased mix of local representation. One of the keys to our continued success is locating and engaging the right partners in the right markets. We believe that hiring exceptional people, local representation for our brand, delivering on our promise, and the kind recommendations of our thrilled homeowners will ensure we continue our incredible growth.

General Contractors:

Being a General Contractor is not a requirement for earning the award of a dealership Timber Block is always excited to add great builder partners who share our customer service expectations and values to our team. We currently have multiple sold projects to match up to the right GCs in multiple US locations. Builders who would like to contract new custom home projects should call right away!”

Quebec home manufacturer’s revolutionary technology results in rapid expansion into global market

MONTREAL, QUEBEC – February 13, 2012 – Timber Block R-30 Ecological Homes proved its patented and revolutionary product is the way of the future in the home building industry. In just 8 years, Timber Block went from an idea in Mascouche, Quebec, to an impressive number of dealerships throughout the rest of Quebec, Ontario, Western Canada, and now, all over the United States and beyond.Just 18 month ago, Timber Block expanded into the U.S. market. In that time, several dealerships have opened up coast to coast in the United States. Already in 2012, plans for new sales models have been confirmed for several areas, including North Carolina and Colorado.

Timber Block’s technology caught the eye of not only single family home owners, but international builders and developers, when they realized a home could be built with the beauty and feel of wood, but without any of the hassle typically associated with building with wood.

Timber Block President Mike Mathon says the success of the company came from the ability to deliver what the consumer asks for. “Building a home is a big decision for people, and so they certainly want it to be done right. They want the construction process to be completed quickly and efficiently, while never sacrificing the quality of their home.” Due to Timber Block’s efficient system building, the walls of a Timber Block home are assembled in hours, the home will be weather tight in days, and the home owner will be able to move in 60 days faster than other custom built homes.

Timber Block also realizes the importance of energy efficiency, and with its patented insulation procedure, every Timber Block home includes R-3o insulation in the walls – this greatly reduces the amount of the homeowner’s energy bill each month. Further, building with wood can be a concern, because wood will settle and check (crack). Timber Block’s wood is dried to an 8% moisture content, (furniture grade) eliminating the risk of settling and checking.

Further, people want to build their home the way they want to. “Almost 90% of our customers will customize their home. We are able to offer stock models, partial custom, and full custom – the home can be built from their dreams and ideas,” says Mathon.

Timber Block is a family-owned Quebec company and is a patented and proprietary product.

Timber Block’s newest model, the Sonoma will be featured at the Cottage and Country Homes Show at the Olympic Stadium, in Montreal, Quebec, February 16-19.

2008 WINNER – Environment and Sustainable Development Awards

This award is presented to companies that have developed new technological solutions in the realm of “green” practices that have been adopted or recognized for sustainable development on energy conservation, waste reduction or other gain in environmental terms.”The use of fewer trees to make our homes, or about thirty trees less per home, and the recycling of our wood is close to our heart. Building a sustainable product was a second motivation. Finally, the creation of a product as the revolutionary R-30 insulated Timber Block, met our criteria for a positive legacy for generations to come. “We really are doing our part to conserve our forests and environment now and for future generations.”

– Michel Mathon, President, Timber Block

Timber Block R-30 Ecological Homes to build brand new contemporary model home inside Montreal home show

MONTREAL, QUEBEC – JANUARY 31, 2012 – Timber Block R-30 Ecological Homes will unveil its newest model – the Sonoma – in its Contemporary Series at 2 upcoming home shows in Montreal, Quebec this February. The model home will be built and completely finished – interior and exterior – inside the Olympic StadiumThe over 2200 square foot home will be one of the main attractions at both the City and Suburb Home Show February 2-5, and again at the Cottage and Country Homes Show February 16-19, also at the Olympic Stadium.

The Sonoma is one level, with almost 15 foot high ceilings in the living areas. It includes 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, open living space and outdoor living space. The model will be completely built, with a finished and furnished interior and fully landscaped inside the Stadium.

This latest model was designed by Timber Block President Michel Mathon. He says it was designed with the Contemporary homeowner in mind. “After designing homes for over 25 years, the Sonoma is the result of knowing exactly what the contemporary customer wants. It is one level, with high ceilings. The third bedroom is located near the front lobby so it can easily be turned into an office, and the bedrooms are all located on the same side, creating a more ‘quiet’ area.” It also features the latest in modern design, with 240 square feet of outdoor living space, accessible from 3 different rooms.

To see the Sonoma inside a home show will be a treat for show-goers. There will be direct access from both sides of the home. “The people attending these shows will be fortunate, as the main show path will take them directly through the front entrance, with full access in all rooms and out the rear door,” says Mathon.

Visitors will be able to walk through the Sonoma first at the City and Suburb Home Show, February 2-5 at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec. It will remain at the Olympic Stadium for the next show, February 16-19 at the Cottage and Country Homes Show.

While the Sonoma is the newest addition to Timber Block’s collection, it includes everything that makes Timber Block one of the most trusted home Manufacturers.

Timber Block has more than 30 years of construction history. Its parent company was established in Quebec as a family business in 1977. Since its inception, Timber Block has been praised and awarded for its revolutionary technology, and has been decorated with the Diamond Award for Initial Quality and After Sales Service. A Timber Block Signature Home allows the customer to live in the most beautiful of homes, but with R-30 insulation, combined with a tight thermal envelope and capabilities to reach almost net zero, a Timber Block home is highly energy efficient,  allowing the homeowner to enjoy substantial energy savings in their energy bills. Timber Block homeowners also are in their new home much sooner, allowing the homeowner to save money on less construction time, plus enjoy their home up to 60 days sooner than many other custom built homes.

Timber Block offers several stock plans, as well as semi and full custom, and is a proprietary and patented product.

Due to Timber Block’s rapid growth, in just a few years, Timber Block has expanded to Western Canada, Ontario, all throughout the United States, as well as Europe.

Timber Block Insulated Log Homes Exceeds the Building Codes in Pennsylvania

TROUT RUN, PENNSYLVANIA – July 19, 2011 Changes to the building codes relating to insulation may have caused difficulty for traditional log home manufacturers to meet the codes, but Timber Block’s insulated log home far exceeds the requirement for insulation in walls.
2009 building Codes relating to insulation in Pennsylvania increased to R19 in walls, which was not a concern for companies like Timber Block, but did ultimately become an issue for traditional log home manufacturers that were not meeting the new building code requirements.

Ray Venema, President of the Pennsylvania Builders Association, and a Timber Block Dealer, states, “Although the Pennsylvania legislature ultimately amended the building codes for traditional log homes, I am proud to be a part of a company with higher than average standards. Timber Block far exceeds the standard requirements for insulation.”

Venema says energy efficiency is one of the most important factors when building a new home. He states, “Timber Block invested in the research and technology to make sure they exceeded building codes, while also providing homeowners with a beautiful home that is environmentally friendly, green and highly energy efficient.” He says this is what makes Timber Block a leader in the home building industry, “The Timber Block product also lowers the footprint of new home construction by using lighter weight materials, which turns into less carbon consumed in the production of the Timber Block wall system, and also preserves natural resources.”

“Even though, the legislature has forgiven the insulation requirements for the standard log home, Timber Block will not relax its standards and its investment in the future,” explains Venema.

About Ray Venema:

Venema has been president of the Pennsylvania Home Builders Association since the beginning of 2011, and was an officer for the association for the past 3 years. He is a former “traditional” log home dealer and now a Timber Block dealer since early 2011. He is also a Certified Green Builder (CGB).

About Timber Block:

Timber Block’s team of professionals offer a product unmatched in residential or commercial log and timber construction, which provides clients with state of the art , environmentally responsible technology combined with cost-effective building methods. Delivering stock or custom products, the team at Timber Block works within partnerships, maximizing the aesthetic and investment, to realize the dream of each unique project.
