Wood Framing Companies In Your Area

  • Ossa Home Repair

    "I bought the wood for a fence and then was hospitalized and unable to replace some broken fence panels myself. Other Companies would not do the task without providing their own wood. I was not about to buy the same wood twice. Ossa took on the task and did a great professional job. Next time I have a project, I will reach out to them first."

  • L & E Contractor Services

    "It was a pleasure hiring Mr. Estevez to remove a small partition wall separating our dining room from our living room. He did a great job with the removal, patching the hole on the adjoining wall, and painting over it. He was even gracious enough to paint the rest of the wall just to make sure everything matches. If you're looking for an all-around Handyman who is honest, affordable, and does excellent work, look no further than Mr. Estevez."

    Zampiello Paint Contractors, Inc.

    "Unlike most paint contractors who seem to be rather "fly by night" part timers, these guys run their business in a truly professional manner. I received 3 quotes for my project, and Zampiello came in the lowest and was by far the most professional. Their on-site crew was fantastic, on time, respectful and extremely professional. Nothing but praise for this company and their crew. Thanks guys!"

    Precision Millwork, Inc.

    "Elias was wonderful and I would highly recommend to anyone. After living through a nightmare in hiring our first contractor, Elias came in, was very professional, and the custom cabinetry/shelving and desk in our home office is absolutely STUNNING. He exceeded our expectations, and we're already hiring him to come back and do more work!"

    Creative Energy Of Virginia

    "Very good experience in dealing with Creative Energy. They gave an excellent price to begin with so I didn't have to negotiate pricing and they also provided helpful insight in drawing up an excellent design. Work was meticulous, they cleaned up well after completing the project. The only issue I had was the project extended well into 3 months, wish it could have completed sooner so that I could have enjoyed the deck that summer it was built. Other than that I would definitely recommend then for any future projects. "

    Deco Homes and Remodeling, Inc.

    "We are still in the planning phase of building a custom home--really custom. Most of the project is still to be done--we have a long way to go. But so far, I have nothing but superlatives for Leo Decanini. He understands my needs better and is more accommodating than any of the other dozen builders with whom I have had discussions. And his price is better than several other quotes I have received. He is meticulous, well-organized, and seems to be a good manager. Don't tell Leo all this--I would not want it to go to his head. Bottom line--Leo knows the meaning of the word "custom"."

The wooden beams behind your walls do more than keep your house standing. They provide support for insulation, hold your wiring in place, and guide the air ducts throughout your home. But if your house has water damage, the water will weaken the existing frames. Rot, standing water, and too much humidity can start to soften the wood. Not only will the frames start to lose structural integrity, the load-bearing supports might be at risk.

Find framing contractors near you who can help inspect and remove any damaged frames before installing new structures. A local company knows the best wood and protective measures for areas with high rainfall or occasional flooding. They are also more familiar with local building codes.

House framing companies aren't just for emergency repairs. If you're adding an extension to your home or you want to redesign part of your floor plan, framing contractors can move your walls and build new ones. Type in your zip code and HomeAdvisor will find house framing companies near you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost to frame my house?

You can expect to pay about $1,400 to $6,000 to frame your house. A framing contractor will charge between $7 and $16 per square foot, which makes up about 18% of the average total home construction budget.

Labor makes up between $4 and $10 per square foot of total framing cost, while lumber ranges between $3 and $6 per square foot. The size of your home, accessibility, and materials you choose all influence that range.

What does house framing include?

In-home construction, framing describes the construction and installation of the core structure of your home, including:

  • exterior walls
  • floor joists
  • subflooring
  • support walls
  • stairwells
  • door frames
  • trusses
  • roof sheathing

The framing of new construction starts with a sill plate that attaches the frame to the foundation. From there, the studs (vertical) and joists (horizontal) make up the core structure of the home.

What is the best wood for framing a house?

The best lumber for framing a home depends on what you need:

  • Douglas fir: strong, works well for posts and beam, minimal cracking
  • Eastern white pine: relatively soft, inexpensive, easy to work with
  • Red oak: inexpensive, easy to work with, prone to decay
  • White oak: decay-resistant, hard, high shrinkage rate

Some homeowners choose to go with steel instead, which is significantly more expensive at $9.50 to $11 per square foot. It's extremely durable and has a low environmental impact, while also holding up better against termites.

What steps should I take to find a framing contractor?

  1. Get at least 3-5 bids.
  2. Ask for references from previous clients.
  3. Check online reviews.
  4. Work with your general contractor for the construction to ensure a good fit.
  5. Ask about license and insurance to work in your state.
  6. Make sure the timeline fits into your larger project scope.
  7. Insist on a clear contract that outlines all the details of the job.
  8. Ask about a written warranty to ensure quality work.
