Your project has the support of an entire team behind your dedicated projection manager. We work with homeowners, building contractors, commercial property owners, and real estate agents. 

Framing elements: Floor, walls, and ceilings

A frame, whether for a home or commercial property, has several elements, each of which must be installed correctly:

Floor framing elements

  • Joists: The horizontal structure to support the floor, on which the walls are secured.
  • Truss: This element is fortified with metal plates, creating a stable support web to keep the floor steady and firm.
  • Sheathing: The subflooring involves panels fastened to the under structure.

Wall framing elements

  • Sill: This wooden framing element anchors the building to the foundation. 
  • Top plate, bottom plate: These elements provide the basic support to the roof and ceiling structure.
  • Studs: These framing elements are secured vertically between top and bottom plates. 
  • Sheathing: The sheathing is placed to tie the studs together and may be made of various materials.
  • Doors, windows: The door and window framing must be placed with extreme precision to ensure all elements will fit beautifully into the frame. 

Roof framing elements

  • Rafters: The rafters span from the ridge of the structure to the external wall. The rafters create the roof shape.
  • Trusses: This element is installed to shift the weight of the roof evenly. Typically prefabricated, this element is not appropriate if an attic conversion is planned.
  • Decking: The decking sits above the roof frame, creating the underlying structure for the waterproofing layer and roof, and is typically plywood.

Ceiling framing elements

  • Joists: These horizontal pieces span the distance of a ceiling, transferring the weight of the upper structure onto the supporting studs.
