Pre-engineered steel buildings are more economical, low-maintenance alternatives to traditional wood buildings. As a growing number of property owners are opting for personal metal buildings that offer additional storage or work space, they are choosing the benefits of steel vs. wood.
From garages to storage sheds and shops, prefabricated metal buildings come in a wide range of sizes, styles and designs and are easy to customize and match with other existing buildings already on a property.
Benefits of Residential Steel Buildings
Metal personal buildings offer many benefits when compared with standard wood structures. Some of their benefits are as follows.
Enhanced strength and durability
It’s tough to top steel when it comes to structural integrity. Resistant to damage caused by pests, temperature extremes, fire and moisture, steel shops, garages and other residential buildings are denser than those made of wood or concrete, allowing them to support more weight.
Steel doesn’t split, crack or warp over time like wood does, so owners of residential metal buildings typically perform far less regular maintenance than owners of traditional building types.
Steel is often cheaper than other building materials, leading to lower upfront costs for metal personal buildings. They are also cheaper to maintain through the years because they don’t require repainting or develop mold in the manner that wood structures might. Owners of metal buildings also experience fewer foundational problems, because steel requires less framing and therefore places less of a strain on the foundation.
Ease of customization
Steel residential buildings are also easy to customize in virtually every area, from size and aesthetics to insulation and wind/snow loads.
