4 Things to Know About Metal Buildings
While you may only think of metal buildings as something that is used in an industrial space like a warehouse, there is more and more evidence to suggest that metal buildings may be a smarter way to go. Whether you are in the market for a new garage, workshop, storage space, carport, or you’re looking to house a new building for agricultural or commercial use, metal buildings make more and more sense. Here are four of the most important things to know about metal buildings from Future Buildings.
Quality: One of the biggest things we can boast and take great pride in is the quality of our metal buildings. This includes our material. All steel between 22 and 14 gauge is AZM 180 Galvalume Plus ™ structural grade (A792-06). Galvalume Plus ™ steel is treated with a zinc coating alloy making it highly corrosion resistant. This means that the quality of the material will shine. Moreover within normal climate conditions Future Buildings offers a 30 Year Rust Perforation Warranty.
Consistency: Another thing you want to be sure of when you are making an industrial or work space is consistency of the material which is used. Future Buildings steel buildings are made from the best steel available in the world today. All the steel used in the construction of your metal buildings is purchased directly from ArcelorMittal Dofasco. This company may be foreign to you but ArcelorMittal Dofasco is the largest steel manufacturer in the world. They are also one of only two mills in the Americas that produces Galvalume Plus ™ steel to the thickness and specifications that Future Buildings requires. Not only does that make us one of their largest customers it also ensures that your building will have the consistency your needs demand and deserve.
Pricing: You may think that by working with the largest steel manufacturer in the world you are going to be a slave to their pricing. However having that consistency of quality grade steel and making all of our metal buildings from it the customers not only get consistent product but optimal pricing.
Lasting: Another thing about having metal buildings is you might think you are only going to suffer the ravages of Mother Nature and Father Time. The work done by Future Buildings is actually some of the best quality and longest lasting metal buildings of their type around. With a minimal use of lubricating oils, our buildings not only makes the steel brighter and less slippery it is also far less susceptible to marking, meaning your metal buildings will stand the test of time.
