At B&G American Contractors framing is one of the most exciting phases of the construction process. During the framing phase you will watch the house take shape. Most people get very excited when the framing is done, thinking that the house is almost built. In reality, the house is only about one-third complete.
The framing must be accurate. If the framing is poor quality, the drywall won't be flat, the floors will squeak, and doors will not close correctly. The job of the general contractor is to make sure the framers follow the plans and the building code.
In traditional platform framing a platform or floor is built on the foundation. The structure is bolted to the foundation with anchor bolts and hold down straps. Walls are placed on top of the floor joists, followed by the roof trusses Traditionally, the floor joists are made of 2x8 - 2x12 boards. However, today the best choice for floor trusses are composite "I" beam joists. They are environmentally friendly using up to 60 percent less wood to make than a solid wood joist and are straighter, stronger and lighter than traditional floor joists.

B&G electrical contracting services specialize in commercial, industrial, marine, or medical applications. Others provide cabling or wiring services and specialize in voice, data and video applications. Typically, electrical contractors use low-voltage wiring to connect telephones, computers, security systems and fire alarms. High voltage wiring is used at power generation and power transmission facilities such as electrical substations. Commercial electricians may install coaxial or fiber optic cable for electronic controls and telecommunications equipment. Industrial electrical contractors and maintenance electricians work in factories and repair motors, generators, transformers, and controllers for machine tools and industrial robots. Generally, electricians specialize in either new construction or maintenance; however, some electrical contracting services do both.
