Industry News

If you haven't heard about the LEED Green Building Rating System, stay tuned. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a set of specs for new construction existing buildings, and commercial interiors. Buildings that are built to LEED specifications are more energy-efficient and healthier for the people who live, work, and play in them.



Metal Framing

Metal framing is an excellent building choice for both commercial and residential construction. Its benefits over wood framing are significant:

  • Light gauge metal framing can reach spans far greater than traditional or engineered lumber, providing larger open spaces, taller walls, and flexible floor plans.
  • Doesn't warp, twist, bow, or split
  • Non-combustible
  • Resists termites and rot
  • Supports good indoor air quality
  • Lightning resistant
  • More environmentally friendly than wood
  • Floors won't squeak
  • Walls will stay straight

Metal framing's advantages over wood reduce construction costs, making it a cost-efficient choice.
