As building codes become stricter, only a few materials are able to meet the stringent requirements. Out of all those materials, steel remains one of the most popular choices for construction as it’s known for its durability and reliability against the natural elements. This is especially valuable if you happen to live in a disaster-prone area.… Continue Reading
Hailstorms cause over $1-billion worth of damage to buildings and property every year, and unfortunately, the forecast doesn’t look too promising. Over the last 20 years, hailstorms have become worse in frequency and strength. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has even placed Texas as the worst-hit in 2015 with 783 storms in a single year. While pre-engineered steel buildings are designed to be more resistant to hail impact damage than most other types of buildings, they can still get hit pretty hard.
Whether they’re pre-engineered steel buildings or not, metal buildings are very popular for two reasons: they’re quick to build, and they have a variety of uses. However, they do have one drawback, and that’s the fact that metal is a very poor insulator, meaning that the interior can be extremely hot during the summer and notoriously cold in the winter. The only way to get around both these issues and still use your metal building is through proper insulation.
Pre-engineered steel buildings are structures that are designed to meet the needs of future owners. These buildings are created to meet a diverse range of structural modifications. The framework can later be customized depending on the design or requirements set by the eventual owners of the structure.
