Prefabricated wall panels are manufactured at the Linwood plant by specialized automated equipment. The panels consist of framing lumber cut to exactly the right angle, height and length. Each wall section has sheathing in place using a nailing pattern that meets local engineering specifications for shear and structural strength.
Wall panel sections can be attached together quickly and efficiently for rapid construction. All exterior wall openings are sized precisely, so once the framing has been inspected, windows and doors can be installed easily and will line up properly.
Using prefabricated wall panelization is popular where fast construction is required, availability of skilled labor is limited, or the homeowner wants to act as general contractor.
