While you may only think of metal buildings as something used in an industrial space like a warehouse, more and more evidence suggests 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 eight of the most important things to know about metal buildings from Future Buildings.
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 40 Year Rust Perforation Warranty.
Another thing you want to be sure of when you are making an industrial or workspace is the consistency of the material which is used. Future 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 produce Galvalume Plus™ steel to the thickness and specifications required by Future Buildings. Not only does that make us one of their largest customers, but it also ensures that your building will have the consistency your needs require and deserve.
All of our metal buildings are made from high-quality steel. By taking advantage of the economies of scale on raw material, we are able to pass the savings to our customers. This ensures they get consistent products and optimal pricing.
With metal buildings, you might think you will only suffer the ravages of Mother Nature and Father Time. The work done by Future Buildings provides some of the best quality and longest-lasting metal buildings of their type around. With minimal use of lubricating oils, the steel is brighter, less slippery, and far less susceptible to marking, meaning your metal buildings will stand the test of time.
Style of Prefab Building
The steel building style you require will vary depending on your intended use. Each shape is best suited to specific applications and is available in different sizes. If you are unsure which one would suit your project, speaking with a building expert can help you decide.
When shopping for a prefabricated metal building, consider the proportions you’ll require. The structure’s dimensions impact the cost of pre-engineered buildings, so having an idea of the square footage required is helpful.
Safety: Steel is resistant to fire, and each structure we offer is designed to meet the snow, wind, and seismic loads in your area. This makes steel a safer building choice.
Ease of Maintenance: Metal structures are not subjected to the same issues as wooden structures. They look great for longer, do not support the growth of mold, rot, mildew, or fungus, and stay strong and sturdy over time.
Energy Efficiency: When you add precut insulation that is designed to the exact dimensions of your building, you can be sure that it is energy efficient. This will help to keep your structure cool in the summer and warm in the winter, creating a comfortable internal environment.
Simple Installation: With smaller, simple projects, you can have your building completely installed over the course of a few days. It is easy to put together, and each piece is precut and predrilled, allowing you to get right to work.
