Market Challenges for Builder and Owner

Large backlog of home buyers:

  • Single-family home construction is running at slowest pace since 1995 3
  • We are 2.7 years behind 2
  • PRICING is key reason for limited supply of for sale homes 2
  • The widening gap between income and home pricing is NOT SUSTAINABLE
  • The Price-Income Gap is a potential problem – but it is also an opportunity
  • The U.S. is short 5.24 million homes (an increase of 1.4m in just last 2 years)

Study by McKinsey & Company between construction and manufacturing industries 4

  • Productivity lagging 170%
  • Stunning $200 billion labor productivity gap
  • $177.5 billion costs by time spent on nonoptimal activities

Shield Panels’ Transformative Powers

When Compared to Conventionally Built Home – Shield Panels have:

Reduction of up to 10% in total costs of construction

Built in 20% to 35% less time (a typical 2000 sq. ft. home can be under roof in 2 to 3 days)

Public demanding energy efficient homes (net-zero and passive homes)

  • Shield Panel Homes use 75% to 85% less energy (and that is before solar is added)
  • Save 20 full-grown Douglas Fir trees for every 1,000 square feet of traditional structure
  • Environmentally friendlier
    • Jobsite waste substantially reduced and less transportation carbon impact
    • Components are 100% recyclable material
    • Panels are non-toxic and contain no chlorofluorocarbons or hydrofluorocarbons
    • Improved air quality within home meeting top AQI (Air Quality Index) requirements

Panels are absent any nutritional value and thermo-sealed.

  • Built so there will be no water damage, now or in the future
  • Panels are strong
  • No pest or termite damage
  • No fungi
  • No mold
  • No micro-organisms can grow
  • Durable - won’t rot, warp, crack or creep

Enhanced Durability

  • Impact Resistance
  • Wildfire Resistance
  • Wind Resistance - Engineered up to 185 mph

Improved Quality

  • Factory Precision Engineering and Dimensional Accuracy
  • Air-Tightness Test Guaranteed Pass
  • Fresh Air System
  • Zero Comfort Complaints

With Shield Panels Builders Can:

Deliver a product their customers can afford

Find solutions to growing trade shortages

Improve industry-worst productivity level
