Benefits of Panelized Homes

The most frequently used systems-built technology today is the panelized building system. A panelized building system is a form of construction in which all components of a house are prefabricated at a climate-controlled factory, and then shipped to the building site for construction. In most instances of panelized homes the weather-tight shell can be assembled in a matter of days.

Panelization is commonly used in most homes for roof, wall and floor panels. Choosing a panelized building system allows for completely customized home designs that will fit virtually any need.

Benefits of panelization:

  • Built faster than stick-built homes
  • Reduce or eliminate costly delays
  • Less, if any, weather damage during construction
  • Precision engineered to highest quality
  • Green building – Less waste generated

There are many building techniques and styles of panelized homes, some of which add numerous extra benefits to choosing systems-built homes. At Topsider Homes’ panelization is married with a Post & Beam building system to create unique homes that are structural battleships.

 Additional benefits with Topsider’s Post & Beam building system:

Whether building a coastal home, primary residence, commercial structure or even a home addition, Topsider’s panelized Post & Beam building system allows for numerous benefits of systems building without the set backs of conventional built homes.
