Building Components (Roof Trusses, Floor Trusses, and Framed Wood Wall Panels) can provide builders significant cost savings advantages over traditional stick-framing construction. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to compare costs because there are so many intangibles associated with a construction project. And let's be honest, engineered components do cost more up front than a few bundles of lumber and boxes of nails. Where you'll realize those savings is at the end of the project, when your labor costs, haul-away costs, framing errors, and job site waste/theft have been greatly reduced or eliminated.
The more a builder makes use of building components, the more they tend to save. Click the image above to try the SAVINGS CALCULATOR for yourself.
