Building on a Solid Foundation: What You Should Know About House Framing

House FramingHouse framing is often talked about, but rarely broken down into more understandable pieces. By definition, framing is the fitting together of pieces to give a building or structure shape and support. In a house framing, this is usually done with wood. Framing plays a critical part in the quality of the home, as the quality of the framing process will affect the installation of all the finishes. This includes cabinets, flooring, tile, whether the walls and ceiling are straight, whether the floors are level, whether rooms are square, and whether trim around windows and doors fits well and looks good. The overall finishes of a properly framed home will stand out from the average home in almost every area.

Close attention should be paid to the process of house framing to ensure the structure is properly built; all floors are level, walls square and true. The attention to detail starts with taking the care necessary to end up with a high-quality finished product. Paying close attention to the details, tolerances, building practices and the use of the appropriate building materials will all help your house framing project be solid in its construction and a beautiful finished project.
