Framing Contractors
SIC Codes: 1751
NAICS Codes: 238130
Last Quarterly Update: 5/23/2022
Companies in this industry are engaged in structural framing and sheathing of buildings. No major companies dominate the industry.
Wood-framed single-family housing, the primary source of business for framing contractors, is more prevalent in the US than in many other parts of the world. Urban density, timber availability, historical building patterns, and income levels limit residential wood framing activity.
The US framing contractor industry includes about 11,500 establishments (single-location companies or branches of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $20 billion.
Contractors in the industry use steel as well as wood to frame buildings. Installation of structural steel and precast concrete framing is not included in the industry, however.
Competitive Landscape
Demand is driven heavily by new home construction. The profitability of individual companies depends on a steady volume of contracted work, accurate work estimation, and cost controls. Large companies have advantages in working in multiple geographies and may have relationships with high-volume production homebuilders. Small companies compete based on quality service and local reputation. The industry is fragmented, and small companies are prevalent. Three-fourths of US framing contractors have fewer than five employees.
Products, Operations & Technology
Major services of framing contractors include construction of single detached residential buildings, which accounts for about 60% of the industry revenue. ... plus:
