Install Exterior Doors and Windows

Getting you, your family, and friends in and out of the building is not the only thing the outside door is about. When you mount a door, you want it to swing easily, bolt tightly, seal out the weather and be secure. You will get a big head start on achieving these targets by choosing the right set-up to start with. And with Universal Framing Carpentry, we will provide you with the best solutions.

Key things we note are setting the door’s height, shaking the frame so that the holes in between and the door are even, and taking precautions to make the installation durable.

Below are some of the services we offer in various locations including Toronto, North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Markham, Vaughan, Concord, Woodbridge, King City, Aurora, Newmarket.

Window Installation

Any method of window installation has its place. An older historic home with elaborately detailed interior trim that needs to be saved can require a pocket install to execute the installation without disturbing the interior trim. On the other side, a home that exhibits water damage from improperly constructed or leaky windows can need a full-frame installation to repair any water damage or rot before installing new windows with a proper water management system. The choice is not that clear to other households. It is up to the homeowner, with the aid of their window contractor, to consider each construction process’s advantages and determine what is right for them.

Pocket Installation

Pocket Installation is distinguished by keeping the old window frame in place. Sashes, parting stops, jam liners, and storm windows are removed, leaving only the old window frame. The new window is customized to fit into the old frame. For windows to be used for this installation process, a narrower 3 1⁄4″ frame width is needed.

Advantage: Pocket Installation is a simple, fast, and usually less costly alternative to replace a window. This system allows a window to be mounted without destroying or upsetting the current interior trim.

Disadvantages: Leaving the original window frame in place does not permit the examination and care of rough openings for water exposure, rotted wood, insulation, insect infestation, or mold. In total, pocket installation leaves significantly less glass than the original pane. It can affect the available light, viewing area, and overall appearance. Leaving old worn trim can be a “mismatch” to the style of new windows.

Full Frame Installation

Full Frame Installation is characterized by eliminating the whole original display. This method of removal should result in exposure to the initial studded opening or rough opening.

Advantages: The complete replacement of the old window enables the inspection and care of rough openings for exposure to water, rotted wood, insect infestation, and mold. Current water treatment and insulation materials and practices should be considered on a modern full-frame installation. Interior light levels, viewing areas, and overall appearances are preserved owing to the comparable scale of the glass to the original windows. A full-frame installation normally replaces the interior window trim. The new interior window trim is elegant and provides an option for changing color and theme.

Disadvantages: Full-frame installs are more extensive and usually more costly to replace a window.

Install Steel Post

One of the most important choices you will make when building a house is choosing the kind of foundation it will rest on. After all, the foundation serves the necessary functions of keeping your house in place even as the ground beneath it might change, insulating it, keeping the moisture out, and keeping it level. A house foundation is forever, so it makes sense to pay attention to the details, ensuring that it will remain dry and crack-free for as long as it has a house to support. Builders choose foundations based on the home’s location and climate, soil conditions and area humidity, and of course, the budget.


Preferring steel framing and installing steel posts for your house has advantages over wood framing. When framing a wall, strength, quality, durability, and ease of use are chief concerns. Wood frames are solid and easy to install, but quality can sometimes be faulty. They are durable, but only as long as you keep those foundations perfectly dry. Installing steel posts takes care of many of these concerns. If you’re opting for steel framing, installing steel posts is out of the question—they are essential. A pier foundation, including steel, is a collection of large diameter cylindrical columns to carry the superstructure and carry over large superimposed loads to the firm strata below. It stood feets above the ground. It is also known as steel post foundation.


Advantages of Installing Steel Posts

  • Installing steel posts is easy and requires less amount of materials and labor. The materials here needed are readily available.
  • It has a lot of variety when it comes to design. We can use varied materials to increase the aesthetic view, and it remains within our budget.
  • Pier foundation, especially steel posts, saves money and time as it doesn’t need extensive excavation and a lot of ground.
  • It causes minimal disruption/destruction to the soil environment. At the end of the house or building’s useful life, the site will be more accessible to restore to a natural state than an area with a full basement.
  • As installing steel posts lifts the house above the ground, floods cannot do any damage to the structures.
  • The space between the house and the ground is enough to install utilities like plumbing and electrical wires.
  • Workers can quickly get under the space between the house and ground to solve plumbing and electrical issues as there is enough space to crawl.
  • It’s comfortable to walk on a floor that doesn’t rest on a firm surface, and it is suitable for people who have certain conditions such as arthritis as well as back pain.
  • A thorough inspection is possible as the diameter of the shafts is larger.
  • Builders and engineers can change the design whenever they want, if necessary.
  • The ground vibration that is typically associated with driven piles is absent in drilled pier construction.
  • The bearing capacity can be increased by under-reaming the bottom in non-caving materials.


Having said this, choosing to install steel posts for your house sure has a lot of advantages in terms of practicality and durability. At Universal Framing Carpentry, we offer value-added service in various locations, including Toronto, North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Markham, Vaughan, Concord, Woodbridge, King City, Aurora, Newmarket.

Install Steel Beam

The steel beam is a structural steel product made to withstand heavy loads. Steel beams come in various sizes and types due to their different uses in the design of foundations and buildings. The construction specifications shall specify the geometry, size, and shape of the beams. These beams can be straight or angled.

Steel is a material that is more efficient and inexpensive than wood and has greater support capacity. We mount steel beams to help customers protect their homes from pests, weathering, and rotting. Steel beams are an effective deterrent to termites.

Engineers are installing steel beams to fix construction issues of different kinds. Beams may be used for remodeling plans or a new building project. They may be fitted with steel beams in place of load-bearing walls, above the garage door, or above the window or door opening. Steel beams are often used to reinforce the foundation of the floor, the hot tub on the deck, the roof, and one or two floors or the roof structure. They also use a range of beam strengthening methods, including the incorporation of welded parts and flats. If wooden beams are mounted, steel sections may be inserted to reinforce them.

Steps on How to Install Steel Beams

  1. Determine the Type of Wall. Our first step is to decide which kind of wall we need to break. If the wall only divides two rooms and does not carry much weight, there is no need to add a beam to support it. However, if the wall is a load-bearing wall, we would have to mount a solid and strong beam to withstand the frame’s weight above it. The replacement of the wall is often done differently if the frame carries a load. You must have a structural engineer decide the type of beam required and whether HSS posts are required.
  2. Remove the Drywall. Once we have determined the wall’s form, we remove the drywall and strip the support beams from both sides. We should be cautious to ensure that the beams are not broken and that the reinforcement is not cracked until we have tested it properly. We’re going to shut down the electrical circuits before we start digging through the drywall.
  3. Temporary Wall Support. The next step is to reinforce the foundation with temporary wall support. This leaves the structure above the load-bearing wall in place while removing the old beams to free up space.
  4. Remove the Old Beams and Install Beam Cradles. When the temporary support structure is in place, we will slowly dismantle the old beams. We will install temporary cradles for new beams that will serve as support as we install the new ones in place. The number of cradles relies on the beam size.
  5. Install the Beam. Measure and cut the new beam and mount it in place, apply some blockage to the floor, and then remove the temporary wall we installed earlier. This beam will be flexed a bit as it carries the load but will eventually settle perfectly in place. Once the beam is stable, we will remove the cradles.

Advantages of Using Steel Beams

There are several reasons why structural steel beams are the chosen material for residential and industrial construction. Structured steel beams are materials capable of carrying loads and at the same time supplying an opposite force to remain unaffected by bending. The bending moment is defined by the bending force inflicted on the beam by the applied external loads, the weight and the diameter of the actual beam, and the effect of the load on the beam.

The manufacturing of structural steel beams ensures minimum waste during construction, which helps those trying to cut costs. Also, steel can be fire-proofed by external insulation and specialty coatings that inhibit the deterioration of steel in a fire. Compared to other conventional building materials, structural steel beams make it possible for engineers and architects to work at their innovative best due to structural steel’s endless design. Furthermore, structural steel can be twisted and curved into shape to create non-linear and out-of-box designs.

Wood Structure Framing

Wood Structure Framing, or light-frame construction, is the assembly of dimensional lumber or engineered wood lumber, which is regularly spaced and fastened together with nails to create floor, wall, and roof assemblies. Wood is the most traditional and natural material used within the construction industry, making it one of the most viable structural framing materials. Wood Structure Framing systems are members assembled from wood. This structural framing system consists of studded walls, floor joists, and other wooden components to create a structural frame. Finished surfaces are then attached to the wooden frame. The loads travel through the floor joists, the studded wall, and then down into the foundation. The principal method of design for wood-framed construction has historically been allowable stress design.

Wood Structure Framing is limited to residential construction and small commercial buildings because of the material itself. Wood has a natural superior strength to weight ratio; however, it does not have the spanning ability or loading capacity to withstand tremendous loads such as a warehouse. Wood Structure Framing members can be prefabricated off-site. This allows for quick and practical construction, which will ultimately drive down labor costs. However, a point to consider is that wood framing has terrible resistance to fire and blast loads. Furthermore, the usage in a storage facility would be very unwise.

Floor, wall, roof, and stair constructions are made up of specific dimensional wood components, similar to those of a skeleton. These components are attached to form the structure and allow the interior spaces to function as desired. The following list identifies and describes each element within each type of assembly.

Floor frames distribute live, dead, and other structural loads across the building to load-bearing walls or the foundation.

Wall frames can be used to create load-bearing or non-load-bearing walls. Load-bearing walls are structural walls that carry and transmit loads from above to floor frames below. Non-load bearing walls serve no structural function. Traditional roof frames balance roof loads across the building to load-bearing walls.

Modern roof frames can be made with roof trusses. A roof truss is a manufactured, engineered wood assembly that includes diagonal top chords, a horizontal bottom chord, and vertical or diagonal webs or braces between the top and bottom chords. Each adjacent member is face combined or joined with metal toothed plates or gussets. Stair frames generate openings that allow for pedestrian travel from floor to floor. The stair frame carries dynamic loads to outside walls or to vertical studs that support the stair frame.

Wood members are cut and attached to create floors, walls, and the roof of a structure according to the set of framing documents and local building codes. Since the 1830s, two wood framing methods have been used to build a network: balloon framing and platform framing. Platform framing is today’s favored method of constructing wood-framed buildings. Same as balloon framing, platform framing is built upon a foundation. This method initially commenced with a floor frame attached to a foundation, and walls are elevated and fastened to the floor frame. Using this repetitive pattern, a carpenter will elevate the first and second floors and any other floors after that. Roof rafters and ceiling joists or trusses are then joined to the top-story walls to form the roof.

Each system can be complex to design as a whole; therefore, simple analysis usually focuses on the individual elements that constitute the system. In some cases, “system effects” may be considered in simplified form and applied to the design of individual components that comprise specifically defined plans. Structural features that make up a residential structural system include bending members, columns, combined bending and axially loaded members, sheathing, diaphragm, and connections.

Basement and Specific Floor Framing

Constructing a basement and specific floor framing is one of the specializations of Universal Framing Carpentry. We have done quite several projects for the basement and specific flooring. We ensure that the basement and specific floor framing projects we did are resilient from wear and tear, weather, and other factors.


To keep the basement and specific floor framing free from wears and tears, we only use high grade lumbers sourced from different parts of the country and delivered to our areas of operation in Toronto, North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Markham, Vaughan, Concord, Woodbridge, King City, Aurora, Newmarket. All our lumbers are treated to resist swift deterioration caused by termites, bugs, moisture, and other natural factors.


Our designs and blueprints for the basement and specific floor framing projects are developed by expert professionals with extensive years of experience to credit on their portfolio. They are carefully created to meet both the client specifications and local and federal safety standards safety requirements.


We conduct careful research for every basement and specific floor framing project we undertake because we believe that each project is unique and should suit every client’s needs and requirements. This research includes basement moisture, isolation, and lighting, which affects the construction and carpentry work, especially with the materials to be used. For floor framing on the second floor, we look into the existing foundations and support to check their capacity. Although some floors are built on a concrete slab flat on the ground, most floors are raised above the ground. Raised floors are more resilient underfoot and provide heating equipment, insulation, plumbing, wiring, and other mechanical equipment. An elevated floor is built with a wooden framework that bridges from one exterior wall to another. This framework might or might not be supported intermediately by rafters, beams, or walls.

Universal Framing Carpentry takes tasks from simple to complex basement and specific floor framing projects. We do everything from measuring, building the frame, securing joists and joist hangers, attaching subfloor for the frame using different materials and equipment. We carefully plan the posts, girders, and trusses to ensure the safety and sturdiness of the structure. Only solid lumber is the material that we use for posts. We use wood girders in our projects because they are lighter and easier to install.

Aside from the stability and sturdiness of the structure, we also value safety during the construction process. We use high-powered tools and equipment together with safety gadgets and accessories to lessen the risks of accidents.

With the satisfaction rate of our clients, we believe that we have done a great job in delivering the basement and specific floor framing services that they need. Our team continues to strive to provide the best services to our clients.

Structural Reconstruction

Structural Reconstruction, as well as the renovation of buildings, are getting more and more demanding on a renovation-construction market. Our firm is ready to offer you a structural reconstruction of any house, building, or premises regardless of its initial functionality and level depreciation.

We completely reconstruct the building, which leads to a new look and improved performance and functionality characteristics that are necessary depending on a specific type of activity. In addition to changing external and internal appearance, we can administer a change in its intended usage, such as from manufacturing into an office or from the warehouse into a shopping. Reconstruction services from our company guarantee high technical and economic parameters of modified buildings.

A complicated structural reconstruction project requires skilled, experienced carpenters. At Universal Framing Carpentry, our professional carpenters have a complete judgment of the materials involved and the ability to carefully execute all the details necessary to guarantee that the fixed project is reconstructed with the highest standard of care.

Homeowners may consider a complete structural reconstruction for various reasons. Sometimes, people need to fix or maintain their homes because of damage caused by a storm, earthquake, or aging. More often, the homeowners want to make their homes more cozy and valuable by adding more windows, changing the home’s design, or increasing the living spaces.

The original architects, builders, and carpenters added these structural elements to bear the weight of the structure and, of course, the contents of the structure. For instance, a fully furnished second floor will increase more weight than an empty one. Occasionally, home builders and carpenters have to consider outside forces as well. The following are examples of ways that the environment may add on a considerable additional load that must be considered:

  • In the event of a windstorm or turbulent rain or heavy snow, the walls and roof might need to bear additional force or weight.
  • Changing soil pressure can put further load on the foundation during wet seasons and less when the soil’s dry.
  • Designers may even account for earthquakes, hurricanes, and other severe weather in some parts of the country.

Naturally, a high-quality home builder will account for all of these potential loads and environmental factors when designing and building the original house.

As the adhesive that successfully integrates multiple sub-trades, our carpenters have thorough training and years of experience in structural reconstruction work, focusing on a wide range of specialties. At Universal Framing Company, we offer structural framing repairs related to decay, exterior siding and trim application, commercial interiors, and high-end interior finish carpentry.

Open Concept Living

Universal Framing Carpentry had done numerous open concept living designs and constructions. An open concept living design involves tearing down walls and opening up spaces to have a merged and shared space for everyone to see, connect, and interact with each other in the common area.

We have done open concept living construction by removing walls between the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. This modern open concept layout is not your typical floor plans from the ’70s and ’80s, which traditionally have a succession of closed-in rooms that can often create a labyrinth feeling in larger homes.

Most modern homes and families prefer this open concept living because of the feeling and atmosphere it creates more than the arrangement. We plan and design the open concept living spaces in the homes and offices to become much ideal to the people by creating more movable spaces to install a temporary design or furniture depending on what they want at a particular time and period.

Given our experience and expertise in design, construction, and carpentry, an open concept living space is a project that we do with excellence. Our designers, architects, and carpenters are highly skilled and trained with years of combined experience working in intensive carpentry and construction work. We are the best in our areas of operation such as Toronto, North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Markham, Vaughan, Concord, Woodbridge, King City, Aurora, Newmarket.

The open concept living style, also known as the open floor plan, is a relatively new interior design concept commonly used in homes. Recently, some offices have adapted this design to lessen boundaries between employees and encourage them to work collaboratively with fewer walls and cubicles. This open concept living style is more practical to house more family members in a house and employees in an office. Our innovative designs, materials, and equipment for construction and carpentry work ensure our clients are in good hands.

Open floor plans have been dominating the architectural trend in new residential construction since about 1990. And they’ve been the goal in many major remodeling projects in older homes, where the objective is to join the kitchen and dining room, dining room, and living room, or all three into a certain form of communal living space or “great room.”

About 75% of our clients who asked us to do an open concept living construction for their homes are those planning to invest in real estate. A renovation or redesign of a home or any real estate property will automatically increase its market value. Since this is a more modern approach to style, design, and interiors, this gives more value to the property.

We guarantee you 100% customer satisfaction with our works, especially in doing open concept living projects. We can tailor fit the design based on what you want and what you need. Expect us to work with you to collaborate in the whole process of designing, demolishing, constructing, and even doing some interior decorations closely!

You do not need to spend too much to make your homes more relaxed and intimate. If you have a small floor area, an open concept living might be suitable for you to maximize the space you occupy and have some more sites to do more things around your homes and offices.

New Build Construction

New Build Construction denotes new construction as opposed to the renovation or refurbishment of existing structures. The new build can include newly constructed facilities of all types such as houses, apartments, office blocks, hospitals, stadia, etc. But, the term is often used in connection with the building of new homes.

In the new build, the percentage of new work will be more significant than any existing work. A new building that uses a previous building’s foundations would still be regarded as a new build. In the case of a current multi-story office block with several new floors added to increase lettable floor space, the construction overall would not be regarded as a ‘new build.’

Work that is not termed new build includes remodeling, refurbishment, and renovation. Extensions can be classed as new builds by their very nature, but the existing building that has been extended is not a new build.

Depending on who you are working with, it may be possible that you could request for the schedule of work order, detailing the overall build and who is responsible for what before the work starts.

Typically the structural work is completed before the plastering and used concerning specific trades, including carpenters, plumbers, and electricians. Then we start constructing any stud walls, installing doors and window frames, flooring, joists, stairs, setting out of electrics, and pipework for plumbing.

Usually, after all, plastering is complete or plasterboards installed. We then make the connection of electronic appliances, installation of cooker, boiler, and electric sockets, any light fittings, fitting of smoke alarms. Skirting boards to walls and doors fitted into frames. Moreover, baths, sinks, and showers are installed, they have the plumbing connections, and this phase is all a bit cleaner than the first fix.

Sometimes there is even a third fix stage, although it’s heard less commonly these days.

The part that most matters to the average customer the most is the finish of the kitchen and bathroom fittings, paintwork and or stain work, all the tiling to the bathrooms and kitchens, and wherever else you might have installed tiles. The general finishing carpentry before the property is handed over to you before completion of works.

Make sure you find out from the start what aftercare is available for your new build or renovation. For example, if all the lights go out and your property is the only one in the street or area, who would you call? Some builders will offer aftercare directly, but some don’t, so it’s essential to check.

Remember, if you doubt any of the above, make sure you seek professional advice.

At this point in planning a home renovation, make sure to investigate local zoning regulations and permits. Also, ensure your neighborhood is zoned for your remodel and find out if you’ll need a permit. If you are completing a project that will change your home structure or use a room, you will most likely need a permit. Wait to apply for permits until you’ve hired a construction team and built a project timeline.

Here at Universal Framing Carpentry, we are experts who can help you build your dream house using the best and efficient carpentry tools, materials, and techniques to meet your needs.

We offer such value-added service in various locations including Toronto, North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Markham, Vaughan, Concord, Woodbridge, King City, Aurora, Newmarket.

Renovation is defined as the method of recovering a broken, damaged, or outdated structure. Renovations are typically either commercial or residential.

Most people tend to renovate their homes to create a new look for their houses, or so another person can live in residence. Builders and carpenters often renovate homes because it is a stable source of income. On the other hand, homeowners often renovate their homes to bolster the resale value and to turn a profit when selling.

At Universal Framing Carpentry, we understand that everyone loves artistic and functional improvements every now and then, especially those that may spark new ideas and motivate us to step out of the box as we fulfill our daily duties.

However, modern technology has had a meaningful impact on the renovation process, increasing the planning stage’s significance and strength. The availability of online design tools has innovated visualization of the changes at a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional interior designer. The purpose of renovation also influences the decision regarding changes. In case of a fix and flip objective, an ROI can result from changes to fix a structural issue or design flow yield or use light and color to make rooms appear more spacious.

You can commence your renovation process by sketching a design about how the remodel should progress. Then inspect whether your roof needs any replacement, installation, maintenance, or repair and if your windows demand any repair. Once you have thoroughly reviewed it, you can go for renovation. Whether it is about your roof, bathroom, or kitchen remodeling, the Universal Framing Carpentry always places earthquake protection and seismic performance as a high priority with the existing renovation and new construction, soft retrofit, and renovation projects. Our team of carpenters guarantees that your structure is safe from further damage and collapse.

Many people renovate homes to create a new appearance for their houses, or so another person can live in residence. Carpenters often renovate houses due to having a stable source of income. The renovation and construction process can usually be broken down into several methods, including planning, engineering, structural repair, rebuilding, and finishes.

Renovation Planning

Planning a home renovation can be overwhelming, mostly if you have not accomplished one before. Whatever the renovation planning of your home will involve so many details that can quickly become daunting.

At Universal Framing Carpentry, we believe that happy workers mean dedicated workers, so we do everything we can to put smiles on faces. If that means more colorful, funky artwork on the walls, outcome the rollers and paint buckets. And clients aren’t the only ones who benefit; the employees themselves do as well.

The first step in a remodeling and renovation project is to make a plan that clearly states the goal for your renovation and reconstruction, including designing inspiration and an outline of the work that needs to be completed.

Your project plan should also include the blueprints or sketches of your finished project, a list of needs and wants for your project, and project steps are divided into DIY steps and steps that will require a professional.

Up to this point in renovating a house, inspect local zoning regulations and protocols and permits. Ensure your neighborhood is placed for your remodel and determine if you’ll need a permit or license to build. If you are accomplishing a project that will change your home structure or use a room, you will most likely need a permit or permission.

Here at Universal Framing Carpentry, we are experts who can help you build your dream house using the best and efficient carpentry tools, materials, and techniques to meet your needs.
