1. We’re Goin’ Down, Down Baby!

4. A Fine Line Between Fast & Faster
The Gang Nailer is a game-changer for our workers, enabling them to work with greater efficiency and precision when constructing walls. Thanks to its capability to attach drywall to the wall framing quickly, we can now build more durable walls in less time than ever before.
5. To Top it Off…
Roof sections are constructed in a specific area and then lifted onto the top of the building using a crane or hoist. This ensures that the roof is properly installed and will provide the necessary protection for the home.
6. Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!
Roofers have the advantage of working indoors, away from harsh weather conditions and other outdoor hazards. Similarly, in offsite construction, working in a protected indoor environment is one of the reasons why it is often faster and more efficient than traditional site-built homebuilding.
