In the 70s and 80s, many fabricated steel buildings sat like gigantic ovens out in the summer sun. It was like they were just waiting to entrap people in their suffocating heat. The experience delivered a powerful blow to the industry. Despite making incredible leaps in both looks and comfort, some property owners still avoid steel based on outdated standards. Are you one of them?
The Surprising Benefits of Today’s Fabricated Steel Buildings
Once you look at all the advantages of the high-quality steel building construction, you’ll understand immediately why they’re among the leading investments today. Your investment will go further, last longer and provide long-term benefits over every other type of new build. Plus, the conveniences involved allow you to put your time and effort where they are truly needed, instead of pouring it into growing maintenance as your structure ages.
Energy Efficiency and Climate Control
Energy efficiency doesn’t just save you money. It makes it much easier to control the temperature and humidity levels in your building. Because less energy is needed to keep your space adequately cooled or heated, you’ll keep people more comfortable. This also means you’ll be saving money on HVAC services.
Certain companies, like Peak Steel Contractors, offer specialty insulation and construction kits for the interior of your structure. These allow you to create a more traditional appearance inside your steel building. You can add electrical, networking and fiber optic cable, plumbing and all of the other features present in wood and concrete construction as well.
There’s no reason your employees, tenants or even your family need to feel any differently in a steel building—except when they feel more comfortable.
Looks and Personalization
For some, it’s uncomfortable enough to think of the drab, uniform look these types of construction had in the past. Did you know that has changed too? Chances are, there are plenty of steel buildings in your area you assume are brick or wood.
We have so many styles of frame, wall, roof, and architectural elements available. It’s very difficult to tell a steel building from another unless the design calls for a large, boxy structure—such as a warehouse or airplane storage facility.
Ask about our array of doors, windows, and skylights to customize your property to meet your unique needs. The satisfaction you’ll feel from a building you’re truly designing yourself can’t be matched by other construction—at least nowhere near in the same price range.
The Comfort of Controlled Costs
From a financial standpoint, few options provide the security of a fabricated steel building. The initial savings are tremendous. Construction costs are minuscule by way of both smaller material and labor fees. Heating and cooling expenses—which often make up the majority of your utility costs—are significantly lower for these structures.
Insurance rates are lower too, because steel doesn’t present the same kinds of risks as other construction. Lightning, winds, rain, pests, mold—you name it, our steel buildings shrug off many causes of property damage. This gives you extra protection as well as lower ongoing costs.
Finally, you’ll be reducing all kinds of maintenance when you choose quality steel construction. Your paint will last 20 years or longer without needing a touch-up; your metal roof should last even longer without any problems. At Peak Steel Buildings, you’ll get the advantage of 25-year roof and wall warranties. You can rest assured you won’t have problems with building codes. In addition, we only work with the best material suppliers in the country. This ensures our customers get all the benefits they’ve bargained for.
