Framing Services of Orange County
Guy's OC Handyman serving Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and the surrounding OC.
Framing, the Backbone of your house. Framing can be thought of as the skeleton of any house or building. Just as bones tend to get brittle and break, so can the wood that holds up your house. So many houses in Orange County, especially some of the older ones, are plagued with squeaking floors, cracks in the wall, dry-rot, and other residuals that come with living in earthquake country. In times like these, when your house is starting to shimmy and shake, when termites start to turn the frame of your house into a buffet, and when those Santa Anas start kicking up those raging fires, you need Guy's the OC handyman. If you want to avoid costly repairs down the road, you require the skills, knowledge, advice, and expertise of a "house doctor" or, an expert handyman, who knows how to frame a house as much as an emergency room surgeon.
Metal Framing vs Wood Framing - Metal framing is typically used in commercial framing applications and is also being seen in more residential applications. Wood is still the main choice for framing residential home construction. Metal framing is not flammable, but it does conduct electricity. Metal studs are typically made of light gauge steel consisting of c-shaped studs and u-shaped channel tracks and lack the strength of a wood 2x4 until installed properly. You can attach screws, but not nails like you can with wood studs. You need to know if you have either metal framing or wood framing when hanging pictures and other items on the finished wall.
