How are Panelized homes different in Hawaii?
Hawaii is considered a beautiful area to live, largely
because of its natural climate. When it comes to home
construction, sometimes this climate works against the
Termite infestations and moisture are more common in
a climate like Hawaii than in most areas in the U.S. For
this reason, many Hawaiian Panelized builders prefer
to use cold formed steel panels to the structural
insulated panels made from OSB.
This results in Panelized homes in Hawaii that are
structurally much stronger than traditional stick built
homes. They tend to last longer and save money on
electric bills because they are better insulated. Here
