The Barden Panelization Advantage

Why you should start building with Panelization Today

Building a Truss in our Manufacturing FacilityThere was a time when building a new home stick by stick on a building lot was the standard and accepted course of construction. Times have changed in the residential building market. More builders and buyers are recognizing that the old methods might not be the most effective.

Increasingly, homes are being erected using a panelized building system; a construction technique that utilizes advanced technology, quality materials and a controlled work environment to build wall panels and to construct an energy-efficient and durable home in less time.

Barden's panelized home building system retains the best aspects of stick frame construction. It combines time-tested building methods with modern technology to deliver a well-designed, energy efficient and beautiful, new home.

Panelization facilitates the quick delivery of the finished product and allows a builder to save time and money. Barden ships ready-to-assemble building components from the Eastern Seaboard to the Midwest.

Panelized building also means a reduced threat of job-site theft or damage - a problem which can add to the cost of site-built construction.

"Bad weather, or an absent framer, during the critical period from startup until the building is weather tight, can ruin a builder's day and jeopardize a customer's investment," said Howie Gardner, Sales Administrator. "To Barden, these occurrences are just minor inconveniences, as significantly shorter construction time is a major benefit to buyers, who also save on construction loan interest."

To bypass any such obstacles, Barden has moved much of the framing process from the building site into its climate-controlled manufacturing facilities. Using state-of-the-art equipment and strict quality control, Barden assembles many complex components at the facilities, then ships them to the job site. A Barden home, commercial building, or church progresses from first floor sill plate to shingled ridge vent in just a week or two, even for the largest of buildings.
