In the world of Italian architecture, there is a tradition that has spanned centuries and continues to capture the imagination of those who love authentic beauty and craftsmanship. We are talking about exposed timber beamed roofs and ceilings, a distinctive element that gives an aura of elegance and warmth to any wooden home. In this article, we will explore the price difference between an exposed beam roof and a normal roof, as well as the reasons why exposed beamed roofs are so admired.

High Quality Wood:

The key to understanding the price difference between an exposed roof and a normal roof lies in the quality of the materials used. For exposed roofs, high-quality wood is used, often laminated, which has superior strength and intrinsic beauty. These woods are carefully selected to ensure maximum durability and resistance to weathering.

Excellent craftsmanship:

Another aspect that plays a crucial role in the price difference is craftsmanship. The exposed ceiling beams are carefully crafted by skilled craftsmen who showcase their talent in creating unique structures. Every piece of wood is precisely beveled and lacquered twice at the factory, giving them an impeccable finish and long-lasting protection.

Aesthetic Benefits:

The exposed roofs in wooden houses are not only a functional choice but also aesthetically appealing. The exposed beams and beads add character and warmth to the architecture of a wooden house, creating a welcoming and inviting space. These roofs often become the focal point of a home, arousing admiration and appreciation.

Difference in cost:

The price difference between an exposed roof and a normal roof is due to the combination of high-quality materials and the superior craftsmanship required to make them. However, it is important to note that this cost difference is an investment in the aesthetics, durability, and long-term value of your home.

The price of a normal ventilated wooden roof (under closed with plasterboard, beams hidden in the roof) comes from 190 to 240 euros/sqm. The exposed roof instead as you can see in the photos above has extra prices compared to the normal roof ranging from 80 to 100 euros/sqm for beams, beading, and laying. Prices vary greatly from the width of the interior rooms, the height of the section of the pontoons, and the location of the house. For example, if we have a wooden house of 150 sqm at these prices the additional cost to have an exposed roof can range from €12,000 to €15,000. Another thing to consider is the possible ventilation of the roof, which we give as standard.

In conclusion, the roofs with exposed beams and beadings for wooden houses are an excellence of Italian architecture. Their intrinsic beauty and the quality of the materials used make them a popular choice for those looking for a wooden house with a touch of authentic elegance. If you are looking for a wooden house that stands out for its style and durability, look no further than the exposed roof. The price difference is an investment in your home and its future.
