STEVENS, an engineering and construction company, based in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, is educating its customers and other interested parties about the top 4 advantages of a prefabricated steel building. The 4 key points that they mention are customization, durability, eco-friendliness, and low maintenance. They claim that prefab metal buildings are ideal structures for any contractor or builder who needs a flexible, low-cost building solution. The company also claims that pre-engineered metal buildings significantly reduce construction times.
According to the company, prefabricated metal buildings are more reliable. They add functionality and aesthetic features and can be made to custom match any requirements. The company claims that no matter why the customer is looking into a prefabricated metal building, it can be designed according to its intended use. They say that there will always be design considerations that will make pre-engineered metal buildings more functional and efficient. Choosing the right mix of prefabricated metal building components is just as important as the size and shape of the structure. No matter how the customer envisions their new building, customizability is the difference between having the perfect structure and settling for less. The article gives examples of auto shops, churches, garages, and warehouses as good examples of customization being used flexibly.
The company also champions the durability of prefab buildings that makes them very attractive to buyers. They claim that pre-engineered metal buildings can endure the strongest storms time and time again, unlike traditional wooden construction. Also, in case something happens to go wrong, it will most likely be covered in the buyer’s warranty. Many steel buildings come standard with warranties like 50-year structural, 40-year paint, and 25-year roof warranties. They also say that pre-engineered steel buildings are non-combustible, which reduces the worry about the building being destroyed by fire.
The company says that the significant benefit of using steel is that it is 100% recyclable and the most recycled material on the planet. Most of the steel used in construction today has been recycled from other uses. So if the buyer’s pre-engineered metal building ever needs to be taken down in the future, it can be recycled and used somewhere else instead of contributing to a landfill. Steel is an ideal material for those who put a considerable emphasis on being green. Steel also doesn't give off toxic fumes during production or construction or in the event of a fire or other disaster. The company also says that sustainable construction is crucial to make the building more attractive to people who prefer an eco-friendly option. It is also very easy to insulate the customer’s steel building and have tighter fittings around doors and windows, reducing energy costs. They also say that with a cool metal roof design, heat island effects can be all but eliminated, so the surrounding environment is subject to less heat.
To explain its final point about low maintenance, STEVENS says, no matter what exterior materials the buyer chooses, whether it is steel panels, brick, stone, combination, or a combination of those, the exterior of their metal building will require very little maintenance. There will be no need to paint every few years as the buyer would if they had a wood exterior. Steel is termite and rodent resistant. Mold, mildew, and fungi growth are also an expensive building repair which doesn’t affect steel. A steel frame won't warp, rot, split, twist, or creep like a wood frame. These properties help steel become a much durable material and low maintenance material over time.
