You have plenty of options when it comes to new structures, but steel livestock buildings really are your best bet. They provide advantages above and beyond initial cost. Peak Steel Buildings can walk you through them all, but first, get familiar with the basics.
Here are just a few reasons steel livestock buildings are such an attractive option:
Steel building construction is fast and easy
Traditional wooden buildings can take several weeks and a team of workers to construct. Conversely, metal panels go up quickly. If you need a fast solution to a livestock problem, there’s no better choice than steel. You can also get the job done with as little as two people, making it an especially convenient and cost effective option for last minute jobs.
Initial costs are lower for steel livestock buildings
Steel structures need fewer building materials, fewer people are needed to do the job and these projects take less time. Those benefits add up quickly, and they result in much lower costs for initial construction. However, this doesn’t mean your new livestock building won’t be a sturdy or long-lasting wooden alternative. Steel is one of the strongest materials available, and it shows in terms of the maintenance it needs to keep steel livestock buildings in great condition.
Steel livestock buildings need less maintenance
Just as setup is cheaper for steel livestock buildings, so are ongoing maintenance costs. Why? You need very little to keep these structures in good condition. In addition, a once a year power-washing, seam and roof inspection are as much as you’ll ever have to do, and you’ll find repairs to be few and far between. And when purchased from a reputable company and built according to factory specs, your building will last decades with not so much as a paint job needed.
Steel is impervious to many of the risks faced by wood
Farmers who are used to wooden buildings find this hard to believe. But when you consider all of the issues that don’t apply to wood, it’s clear they will take up less of your time (and money). Color is mixed in with metal during panel creation. Therefore, buildings are resistant to fading and rarely need to be painted. They don’t suffer from mold or rot. Bugs and rodents can’t burrow into the material. Lightning won’t spark a fire, and if it did, steel won’t burn. Consequently, removing the need for those tasks leaves you with a lot of time available to spend elsewhere while your livestock buildings continue to do their jobs as intended.
Modifications are simple and affordable
One of the biggest benefits of steel livestock buildings is the ease with which you can modify them to meet growing or changing needs. You don’t have to retrofit a structure. You can pop apart the seams, add new panels and have a new, improved building suited to your new livestock needs in no time.
Get the exact look and design you want with steel
Unlike the first steel-paneled buildings to show up on farms, today’s products are available in a dozen colors, designs and more. Get your choice of roof shape, add front panels resembling stone or wood and create the exact look you want. It’s easy for a new livestock building to ditch the utilitarian look, if desired, or to instantly blend in with the other buildings around your property.
