In this blog post, we will discuss three of the most significant benefits of panelized construction in the home building industry and why Wausau Homes is an industry leader.

What is Panelized Construction?

Panelized construction is a modern method of building homes that involves the use of pre-fabricated wall panels, roof trusses, and floor systems. These panels are constructed in a factory and then transported to the building site where they are assembled to form the structure of the house. Panelized construction has gained popularity in recent years due to its numerous advantages.


At Wausau Homes, our proven Panelized Component Construction Process allows us to customize every aspect of your home to your family’s lifestyle. You get to build your home your way! Our factory-crafted building process does not limit your designs.

Increased Efficiency and Speed of Construction

One of the most significant advantages of panelized construction is its ability to increase the efficiency and speed of the construction process. Since the panels are pre-fabricated in a factory, they can be produced much faster than traditional building methods. This means that the building process can be completed much quicker, reducing the time it takes to build a home by up to 50%. Additionally, since the panels are made in a controlled environment, there is less waste and fewer errors, reducing the need for on-site rework and saving both time and money.

At Wausau Homes, we create fully customized homes of superior quality, tailored to your specifications from floor plans to finishes. Our innovative panelized construction process enables us to efficiently construct wall, floor, and trust components in our advanced facility. After the local Wausau Homes builder lays the foundation, the panelized framework is transported to the job site and assembled by a skilled crew and crane within 1 to 5 days, depending on the size of the home. This ensures that our team of professionals can build your home, your way, with a firm price, on time, and in as little as 120 days.

Improved Quality and Consistency

Another advantage of panelized construction is the improved quality and consistency of the finished product. The panels are constructed in a controlled environment, using precisely measured materials and techniques, ensuring that each panel is consistent and of high quality. This consistency ensures that the finished product is structurally sound and meets all building codes and regulations. Additionally, panelized construction allows for greater customization and design flexibility, as the panels can be cut and shaped to fit any design, resulting in a more personalized and unique finished product.

Cost Savings

Panelized construction can also lead to significant cost savings for home builders and buyers. Since the panels are pre-fabricated in a factory, there is less waste and fewer errors, reducing the need for on-site rework and saving both time and money. Additionally, panelized construction allows for greater cost control, as the cost of materials and labor can be more accurately estimated and controlled in a factory setting. This cost control translates to cost savings for both the builder and the buyer, as the overall cost of the home is lower than traditional building methods.

At Wausau Homes our professional team of structural engineers and draftsmen ensure that all homes are built with the highest precision quality, and consistency. Since this is all done in our climate-controlled environment, our craftsmen don’t battle the typical outdoor elements. this ensures a stronger, tighter, higher-quality home with less waste and no cost overruns or time delay
