During this What’s in Your Wall series, we’ve covered frozen pipes and electrical outlets. Whether or not you’ve been following, this particular article will help you understand the very basic components of what your wall is made up of.

Wood Framing

Framing is like the bones of a building. It provides a basic structural outline to create your floor plan.

Trade Additions

The framing supports electrical wires, plumbing, and HVAC ducting. When the walls are open, modification can be done easily.

Insulation

Once the trades are complete, it’s time for insulation. This gives your home padding from the outside weather and keeps you comfortable all year around.

Drywall

Drywall conceals the rough structure to make a continuous canvas inside the room.

Priming & Painting

The drywall is then given a fresh coat of paint.

On the outside, walls don’t seem very complex. However, on the inside, they’re full of details necessary to the overall enjoyment of your home.
