From sheds to warehouses we all want a building that is tough and long-lasting, in order to get the most out of our dollar. While timber buildings have long been the standard there are many people who are beginning to see the advantages of steel. The new pre-fabricated steel buildings are a great choice for those who want their new building to last for many years, as well as stand up to the elements. Not only are these buildings tough, they are quite reasonably priced as well.
Pre-fabricated steel metal buildings come in thousands of configurations, from your basic box or rectangular shape to complicated architectures including domes and arches. Whether you are looking for a shed or garage size to a warehouse or even office building there are engineered buildings to suit your needs. There are many arenas, community centres and even pools that are now making use of the durability and affordability of pre-fabricated steel buildings.
Those who own a home that did not come equipped with a garage can now easily add one with a pre-fabricated steel garage kit. Rust and fire resistant, these structures are often built stronger and can last longer than the home itself. Packages can come complete with everything you need, or you can simply purchase the frame and complete it with your own materials to make it match your home. Building the structure is easy and requires little or no construction experience.
Each steel building comes with all the materials needed as well as a video to help guide the construction process. For full packages all the framing, roofing materials, walls, trim and hardware are included. The builder will need to put in a concrete floor and add doors and windows themselves, as they would with a traditional wood building.
The buildings come with a 12 year warranty so new building owners can rest easy knowing that their new structure is covered. Over the years while traditional wood buildings rot, warp, and decay a steel building will remain looking like the day it was built. Additionally, the wide variety of finishes available mean that any steel building can appear made of wood or stone in order to match the surrounding structures.
Areas of extreme weather conditions are a great place for steel buildings. Steel is incredibly resilient to temperature changes, and of course will not become damaged by wet weather like lumber. It can withstand high winds and is structurally stronger so it can more readily withstand earthquakes. For these reasons a metal building is often less costly to insure.
Incredibly simple to assemble, there is no need for professional help when putting together a new steel building. You may want a few friends to help out, but other than that it should be a breeze. Once completed you will have a tough steel building that can stand up to the elements and will require little maintenance. For your garage, addition, workshop or shed a prefabricated building is a great choice.
