Did you know???

Float Your Frame

Do you know what a float framing wall is? If you’re building out an unfinished basement, it is probably a good idea to frame your basement wall with a floating frame. The space that is created between the base plate and bottom plates creates a flex for your walls when the ground moves and creates heaving in the concrete slab. If you don’t have float framing, you’ll get cracks in your drywall when the concrete heaves.

When you or someone you know id finishing a basement..

Make sure you ask the contractor to use float framing, especially in Colorado. You’ll be happy you did!
