When most people think about getting a prefabricated studio, they’re often skeptical about quality. What people don’t realize is there are actually more benefits to prefabrication and panelization than they realize. You can learn what some of the benefits of panelization for prefab studios are in our detailed guide below. Read on for more information.
If you take a moment to think about construction options, your choices are prefabrication and stick-built. Whether you know it or not, you’re familiar with stick-built construction. Stick-built construction essentially means the entire structure is built on-site one stud at a time. Unsurprisingly, stick-built construction is extremely time consuming. Panelization cuts down the installation and construction process by a third. Additionally, unlike the stick-built method, everything arrives on-site at the same time when using panelization, which means no more delays because of shipping issues.
It’s Better for the Environment
Stick-built construction is known for producing thousands of pounds of waste for every structure built because workers have to make all the cuts themselves. In other words, there’s a lot of room for human error during stick-built construction. At Johnston Contracting Services, we use state-of-the-art computer design software to significantly reduce waste in our prefabricated backyard offices. In fact, all cuts and seams on our prefab structures are made intentionally to reduce waste and provide unsurpassed quality and strength.
All-Around Better Quality
We build all our prefabricated studios in dry and climate-controlled facilities to reduce the chance of warping and bowing materials. Our climate-controlled facility virtually eliminates any moisture content in our materials to ensure longevity and top quality. Remember how we said our seams and cuts are intentionally chosen? That’s because they support our panel breaks, which provide more strength than outdated construction methods.
As you can see, there are major benefits of panelization for prefab studios. People falsely assume that prefab means low quality, but prefabrication and panelization construction is often stronger and higher quality than stick-built construction.
