The initial step in the construction is laying the foundation which is the groundwork structure that holds up a house. The proper construction of foundation is essential to prevent any future disaster that could tear your house. This stage involves excavation the ground, framing limber for different sections and pouring concrete into each section. The foundation can take one week to set, after which the form boards are removed, and then the stage of framing starts.
Framing is the underlying structure of the house just like a skeleton is of the human body. Framing is done to give the initial start to the construction of rooms, doorways, and windows by installing the lumber frames.
Your house can suffer from extreme damage due to certain climate risks such as moisture which causes the interiors of your house to become moldy and wet. House wrap is a protective barrier installed to prevent the development of mold and wood rut caused by climate changes.
