We hope you’ve all had a successful 2021 building season—now it’s time to look ahead to 2022! This past year was a rough one for the housing market, and that trend is expected to continue into 2022. Because there is a shortage of homes for those looking to buy, construction prices (mostly the cost of lumber) have gone up and builders have been working quickly to build more homes.

The building industry will continue to be competitive in the next year. While it is difficult to predict what will happen with real estate in 2022, according to Mashvisor, “In the 2022 real estate market, bottlenecks in the supply chain will be fixed with continued economic growth, and many companies will restock their shelves.” So, if your projects were on hold due to a lack of supplies, be ready to build in this next year!

Architecture trends for 2022 are all about efficiency and sustainability. The use of wood in commercial buildings, known as mass timber, is growing rapidly in popularity. It’s quick to install and it’s the more sustainable choice of building materials as this material naturally captures carbon. This trend is just a bigger scale of the wall panels that we create for home construction—imagine how quickly homes could be built if all construction companies switched to using prefabricated wall panels!

In order to stay ahead of the competition, you need to build faster and better. Our prefabricated wall panels provide you with the finest custom-built panels to reduce time, labor, cost, and material waste. Construction in winter is difficult due to having to pause the work from freezing temperatures, so it’s important to get the job done quickly. We begin with designing the panels for your project so that there are minimal issues on the job site. The wall panels are also bundled according to the framing sequence that the framers will follow, so you don’t have to waste time getting organized.

While we don’t know exactly what will happen in construction in 2022, it’s best to be prepared. When you take on your next home construction project, give us a call to start designing your wall panels.

Edgebuilder is dedicated to providing quality prefabricated wall panels and permanent wood foundations to make your work better and quicker.
