I have plan to build my website. I do not know php code much.
My friend suggest me use a page builder for content creating.
Should I use that? Do they make website slow?
I found some one in wordpress.org

I've been using a page builder for a long time, however it's not one of the ones you mentioned.

I have never noticed any speed slow down and it saves a tremendous amount of time constructing a site.

This post is a little old, so not sure if you still need a reply, but Beaver Builder is arguably the best out there. The one thing I would recommend though would be to watch the titles. Sometimes page builders will have DIY elements that misalign your H tag assignment (e.g. the main title on your page is an H7 or something like that).

As for speed, page builders can slow down your pages (especially when compared to a flat coded template file), but shouldn't be too detrimental.
