Our experts will compare standard and advanced framing practices side by side with two framed long walls. On one, they will show typical framing practices while the other they will detail how advanced energy-efficient framing uses 20% less material without compromising the structure, and at the same time, allows more room for insulation and minimizes thermal bridging.
