Why Consider a Panelized Wood Roof Systems for Commercial Buildings

Panelizing, the process of assembling roof sections on the ground and then lifting them into place, allows contractors to reduce labor and material costs. Typical savings in markets along the west coast range from $1.25 to $1.50 per square foot over conventional steel joist metal deck systems.

“With a panelized wood roof system, you get lower cost, faster construction and a safer work site,” said Darrell Marchell, PE, with Panelized Structures, Inc. “A panelized roof system gives you the economies of efficient erection coupled with cost-effective materials and design versatility for a structure that can be engineered to resist the required loads.”
