Advantages of Steel Buildings
Strength and Durability
Metal buildings are built to survive harsh weather conditions than other types of construction. Unlike Timber buildings, metal buildings are not susceptible to rot, mold, cracking, all types of insects and termites, and are fire resistant.
Long-life finishes provide years of care-free ownership. Our metal buildings will require less maintenance than similar structures made from other types of materials. You will be proud of your new facility for years to come. Steel buildings also generally have shorter construction time. Steel buildings are delivered to the site ready to assemble, and can usually be erected in days or weeks, not months. If treated properly with the right coatings and paint, steel buildings will typically have a longer lifespan than traditional timber. Plus steel is a “green” product and is completely recyclable.
SGC’s buildings are produced using only high-grade metal and premium components. You can be sure that your investment will be built to last and will serve you for years to come.
With fast construction, exceptional durability, carefree maintenance, and affordable customization, you know SGC will meet your needs and exceed your expectations. The biggest benefit to a steel building is the cost compared to traditional wood-framed timber buildings. Insurance companies could charge more for pole or timber buildings because of their fire rating, or their overall strength and durability. Insurance is always a great measurement tool when looking to buy a building. A steel building is the ultimate long term solution to many building needs, and will cost less over the building’s lifetime, when weighed side-by-side with a pole barn or timber-framed building.
Many people think steel buildings are boring, boxy, metallic structures and build with wood simply because they don’t like the look of a steel building. This ignores the many benefits of steel just for the sake of aesthetics, and is just plain wrong. What if a steel building doesn’t have to look like a steel building? A steel building can have the outward appearance of any type of building, while retaining a steel frame. For example, brick facades, vinyl siding, and wood veneers can be added to get the look that you want.
