Taking on a construction project can be challenging.

Builders that you can count on understand that quality construction comes from quality materials. We provide Maryland and Washington, D.C.builders, remodelers, and homeowners with high-quality lumber and building supplies. Once quality materials are in the picture, the construction process should be top-notch as well. Taking on a construction project can be challenging. Therefore, we’re sharing some quick tips that will ensure quality construction.

Understand the Ins and Outs of Framing

Many homes have imperfections, and when a home ages, these imperfections increase. When a house settles, floors and walls start to curve, slope, and separate. Before making any cuts, it would be best if you look over the acceptable tolerances of the lumber that you’re going to use. Frames should be straight so that your foundation isn’t uneven. Also, the framing supports plumbing, electrical, and an HVAC setup. Keeping this in mind, you want to make sure that the structure has an accurate and efficient set up so that the following projects to come can be as manageable as possible. 

Working With Solid Lumber Ensures Durability

The variety of lumber depends on three things: seller, batch, and tree. When you pick the lumber for the framing, search for straight, long-lasting boards. Bowed, curved, or defective boards will result in a weak foundation. The same concept applies to cabinets, doors, and walls. They need straight walls to work as they should. Choosing the best wood right (that we can offer you) away ensures that the entire construction project runs smoothly. 

How to Prepare a Subfloor

When you install a stable subfloor, it helps with creating a level surface area. However, the glue can be messy, making it harder to finish the construction job. If you want to set up a subfloor without the mess, you can carefully lower the subfloor with a digging tool.

Quality Construction Involves Being Licensed and Insured

Before you take on any building job, you should always make sure that your company has the insurance and bonds in place to protect yourself from unpredictable events that may hinder the construction process. Also, always make sure that you and your team continually build with safety in mind.
