What is Framing?
A home’s frame is what keeps it from falling down. It is made of beams that form the “bones” of the structure. A solid frame and a good foundation can keep a house standing for hundreds of years. It’s important to invest in reputable framing services to ensure the safety and building code compliance of your home.
The frame is made of three major parts:
- Sill plate – The first portion of framing that sits on top of the concrete, the sill plate is attached to the foundation. It prevents bug infestation, water damage, and rot.
- Studs – Studs are placed vertically and make up the walls of a house. They are spaced to accommodate windows and doors.
- Joists – The joists of a frame are horizontal pieces that sit on top of walls and support floors and roofing.
Some common problems with home framing include:
- Moisture and mold growth
- Termite infestation
- Low thermal mass
- Issues with weather/disaster resistance
