That’s a great question! There are so many reasons why steel buildings are better than wooden ones.

Here are just a few:

  1. Strength: Steel has a much higher strength/weight ratio than wood. That means that it takes less material to make a more resilient structure. Steel buildings have been tested to withstand winds reaching up to 170 mph!
  2. Durability: Steel beams will not crack, bend, or warp over time the way that wooden ones do. And termites or other pests will not infest your steel frame.
  3. Efficiency: Your steel building kit arrives at your building site ready for you to erect it. You do not have to cut or weld any of the parts. That means less construction time, and fewer delays for your business.
  4. Eco-friendliness: Because we prefabricate your kit in our facility, your job site will have less waste to haul away. Plus, steel is the most recycled material on earth. Old steel goes into the production of new steel. Old wood ends up in landfills.
