Two storey homes

When conventional two-storey timber frame housing conforms with building regulations it is not inherently unsafe. But with a domestic fire occurring every six minutes in the UK any vulnerability to fire spread should be scrutinised. Problems start to emerge in timber frame homes when DIYers set about making home improvements. Any activity from extensions to simply adding new light fittings can compromise essential built-in fire protection. Then fires can spread more quickly through homes and cause far greater destructive damage than would be normally expected. Fire brigades also complain of lost time having to brake open walls to douse fire sources in cavities.
