How to make your building strong with proper framing

Construction Software

This useful construction video will guide you through step-by-step processes for framing a building.

Framing in construction refers to the fitting organized with pieces to provide a strong structure support and shape. Framing materials generally range from wood, engineered wood, or structural steel.

A frame is the backbone of a house. A robust frame can give the essential support for everything that follows. But a weak frame can cause harm to the building. With the emergence of advanced in air tools like framing nailers, the framing becomes easy.

There are two types of methods for framing - platform and balloon-frame construction.

With platform-frame construction, walls are placed on top of subflooring. Multistory constructions are developed one level at once with each floor allowing a platform for forming the next series of walls.

With balloon-frame construction, studs operate full height from mud sill to the top plate, to a highest of 20 feet.
