What is panelized or pre-engineered construction?
It is a method of construction whereby each wall and truss of the house is built in a climate-controlled setting, using tools that provide square and plumb walls, and exact truss configurations every time. Once constructed, Barden Homes delivers these components to the job site, (still as individual wall sections and individual trusses) where they are secured into place.
As a complete custom home material supplier, Barden Homes also provides:
• Engineered/Pre-cut Floor Deck System
• Engineered Roof Truss System
• Exterior Trim, Siding and Roof Products
• Interior Trim & Kitchen Cabinets
• Windows & Exterior Doors
Building your walls and trusses in a climate-controlled facility enables the builder to enclose the home much faster than conventional construction, protecting your investment from weather and theft.
