Can I use any brand of window in the pre-built wall panels?

Yes. We will design the walls using the brand and style of windows you specify or we can make suggestions. A window schedule with correct placement and size specifications from your window manufacturer will be needed when you select your own windows.

Do I get layouts with any pre-built system?

Yes, all phases are supplied with technical layouts and diagrams. Floor, wall panel and roof trusses each come with their own diagrams. When comparing costs take that into consideration since many suppliers do not include the layouts and diagrams in their costs. You should have a full set of layouts and diagrams for your project builder to reference.

How are the pre-built systems delivered?

Most orders are delivered direct from the factory with roll deck trailer and semi-trucks. The driver will do his best to get into the construction site. Trees, tight driveways with curves make the job harder, if not impossible for a roll deck trailer to deliver the load directly to the building site. At times loads have to be dropped at the end of the road if the site is not accessible. We, the driver nor the manufacturer can be held responsible for damages incurred due to an inadequate driveway or costs incurred to have materials transported from the road to the building site. We will be glad to visit your site and make recommendations prior to delivery.
