A prefabricated steel building is a popular structural choice for both residential use and a variety of industries, from logistics to mining, agricultural and beyond. And it is for good reason that they are gaining such a foothold as the structure of choice. Below are some of the most common reasons why prefabricated steel building are a great choice of building, regardless of their specific application.
An experienced steel building manufacturer will have a long track record of producing prefabricated steel buildings for every size or complexity of building project. This means that regardless of the application of your structure – a small garage, and industrial warehouse or an airplane hangar – a team of talented engineers will produce a finished product that perfectly suits your needs.
Prefabricated steel buildings are quickly becoming a popular choice because they are stronger and more durable than structures built of other materials, such as wood, brick or block. A specialized type of steel designed to withstand extreme weather is the base material used in prefabricated steel buildings, which protects against rust and ensures longevity. Dipped in aluminum-zinc alloy and coated with clear organic acrylic resin, the material is also highly resistant to corrosion.
Factory direct pricing drives the cost of steel buildings down, and these savings are passed onto the consumer. When you order a prefabricated steel building, you are dealing directly with the manufacturer, not a wholesaler. This also means that products are manufactured to order, allowing you to have them built according to your specifications. Furthermore, due to their DIY nature, prefabricated steel buildings save you money that you would otherwise have to spend hiring a contractor or builder.
Prefabricated steel buildings do not require the same lengthy construction process as building made with other materials. When you opt for a prefabricated steel building, any reasonable purchasing and delivery schedule can be accommodated. Furthermore, the DIY process to erecting the building means that you are in control of when and how fast your structure goes up.
Steel is the most recycled material in all of North America. The roof and wall panels of a steel building are almost 100% recyclable, and many prefabricated steel buildings are composed of recycled steel. Furthermore, they are thermal and energy efficient, allowing for the conservation of energy. And lastly, because of their durability and longevity, prefabricated steel buildings produce much less waste than non-metal building materials that have shorter shelf-lives.
