No matter what sector of the construction business you work in, you are likely familiar with the constant push to complete projects faster and more efficiently. It makes sense—completing projects faster means you can serve more customers and grow your business. But how do you increase efficiency without sacrificing the quality of your builds? The answer may lie in your choice of tools and materials—even those as small as fasteners.
Whether you have been contracted to frame homes, install flooring, or install a roof, the key to any job is planning. If you are hoping to maximize your team’s construction efficiency without sacrificing the quality of work you are known for, it is important to have completed a thorough plan that details the needs of a project and correctly identifies the best tools and materials needed to complete the job according to plan.
Believe it or not, even your choice of fasteners can have a sizable impact on the amount of time it takes to complete a job. On any given building, thousands of fasteners must be installed to ensure that the building is structurally sound. The time it takes to install thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands of fasteners, can ultimately account for a significant portion of your workers’ time on a project. That is time that could be dedicated to other construction projects in your portfolio.
So how do we save construction time without sacrificing build quality? Strategically choosing the right tools and materials can significantly reduce construction time without cutting corners. For example, SCRAIL® fasteners, developed by BECK, are eight times faster than bulk screws and twice as fast as collated screws to install into boards. They are suitable for nearly any screw applications and can be combined with the nailers you already use, SCRAIL® fasteners provide an opportunity to reduce construction time by simply switching from other collated or bulk screws.
Whether you are framing homes, laying subfloors, or installing roofs, any incremental time saving strategies, such as using a more efficient fastener, can pay dividends down the road as you and your team will have more time to take on additional projects thus allowing you to grow your business.
