Most people never give much thought to their home’s structural integrity – unless there’s a problem. But when you’re building a new home, even small mistakes made during the framing process can cause big headaches later on, problems that range from mild annoyances to major structural issues.
Let’s take a look at how a home gets framed, and how a professional builder makes sure it’s done right.

You should think of framing as the bones of your home. Not only does framing give your home its shape and structure, but it also impacts the quality of nearly every aspect of your home, from strictly mechanical arrangements, to interior and exterior finishes. Because there is so much depending on the quality of your home’s framing, you really need to make sure you choose a contractor that is experienced in custom home building and committed to building a quality home from the ground up.
HERE AT ONECALL, THE FRAMING PROCESS STARTS AT THE DESIGN STAGE
Unlike general contractors, who oversee the entire construction process from pipes to wires and materials, and custom home contractors, who specialize in custom homes, framing contractors focus on the, well, frame of your home or business. Framing contractors understand how buildings fit together, how each room interacts with each other, and how the whole building interacts with the environment around it. They are essential to marrying your vision with physics to make your dream home or commercial building become a reality.
That’s why the framer works closely with the project supervisor, the professional builder’s on-site manager. The super is someone with many years of experience, sees the house as an integrated system, and understands how the structural shell will ultimately hold all other elements.

Here at OneCall Framing, the framing process starts at design and engineering. We design and plan everything ahead to avoid conflicts between the framing and the mechanical components of the home such as plumbing pipes and HVAC ductwork.
There are several options for quality framing to consider for your home:
Traditional Stick Framing
The vast majority of homes built in the United States use stick framing. This method of framing gets its name because the building contractors will actually assemble a skeleton of the home using “sticks” of wood.
Off-Site Assembled Stick Framing
Instead of cutting the wood that is used for framing on the job site, wall panels made of stick-built wood are assembled off-site in a manufacturing plant. This allows entire wall panels to be put together in an environment that is away from weather and rain.
High Efficiency Framing and Insulation
The use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) has become a common practice among high quality building contractors as they offer increased air tightness for a building´s walls, floors, and roof.
Concrete framing is durable, fireproof, and helps reduce a home’s energy usage.
