Built Green

Strong Framing Inc. uses Optimal Value Engineering (OVE) whenever applicable and is trained & certified in the following techniques:
The Basics of OVE:
  • Walls are framed with 2x6 studs on 24-inch centers stacked from roof to foundation, rather than 2x4 studs or 2x6 studs on 16-inch centers.
  • Corners are made from two studs rather than four
  • Headers are sized according to the load they actually carry
  • Roofs are built with trusses, rather than framed conventionally
  • Floors are framed with I-joists, rather than sawn lumber
  • Insulation sheathing replaces plywood or OSB
  • Low-V subglue
