Components are hands-down the best way to frame. Why? Because framing a house with floor and roof trusses means you can build faster – 2.5 more houses with the same crew. Also, in today’s busy building environment, coupled with a labor shortage, getting more houses out of your crew is critical to staying on track.

Trusses also use 25% less wood product and create significantly less job waste. That’s better for the environment and better for the bottom line.

Stick Framing VS. Component Framing

Imagine two identical 2,900 sf homes. One framed conventionally and one built with engineered components. The house framed with trusses was built in less than half the time as traditional stick framing. Who wouldn’t value a house in half the time, or better yet, framing two houses in the same amount of time it currently takes to do one?
