The Nelson Panelized System

Our panelized walls offer a complete framing system, built with top grade Canadian kiln dried lumber. Panels come in pre-built sections, have framed-in window and door openings, and OSB sheathing applied. This ensures quick framing time, lower labour cost, and less material waste. Other advantages include:

  • Components that are factory built using state-of-the-art technology to ensure accuracy
  • Components that are numbered and cross-referenced for quick assembly at your job site
  • Delivery to your building site within weeks of ordering
  • The ability to be your own builder
  • The ability to build green, using environmentally friendly materials and creating less waste

Why is Panelized Better?

Climate Controlled Production

  • Roof trusses, wall panels and stairs are manufactured in factories, keeping the lumber from the elements of nature. This means straighter components due to less warping, twisting, and swelling.
  • With straighter walls you'll have fewer problems with nail pops, ceiling cracks or corner cracks. Your windows and doors will fit properly, requiring fewer repairs and adjustments later on.

Cost Savings

  • The Nelson system of pre-planning virtually eliminates costly and time-consuming construction errors and material shortages or overages. Less labor is required to erect the structure; independent research shows a reduction of as much as 60% of framing time.
  • Guaranteed price up front. There are no surprises, such as unexpected price increases for materials. Nelson Homes provides one of the best price guarantees in the industry.
  • Less material is wasted and job-site cleanup costs are reduced.
  • Your home will be to lock-up stage quickly, reducing the chance of weather delays and theft.

Excellent Quality

  • Manufacturing adheres to strict building standards and codes; components are thoroughly inspected at every stage.
  • Specialized computer equipment ensures precision-built components. Even the most complex roof systems are built to fit precisely.

Less Home Builder Stress

  • Major work is completed before the package arrives.
  • You’ll spend less time researching the vast array of product choices. Nelson Homes experienced representatives will assist with your decisions, offering advice and product knowledge.
  • You can move in sooner, and pay less interest.
