Whats A House Frame?

Whats a House Frame? House framing is the skeleton of beams that support the rest of your home, including the drywall, roof, windows, and flooring. House framing is almost always made of wood, but some are built with metal frames. 

In most cases, a concrete foundation and concrete footers beneath the framing support the home, exterior walls, and siding. Beams are also usually placed in the foundation to help load-bearing walls.

Your framing needs to meet building codes that follow basic engineering principles. A strong frame can remain solid for centuries, while a weak frame can cause deterioration in your home within five to 10 years.
