Snow may look nice on your metal building, but too much of it can become detrimental to its structure. Newly fallen snow can usually weigh 10 to 12 pounds per cubic foot on your roof, but its density can change when it sits too long and starts to melt. On average, the snow can weigh up to 16 to 30 pounds per cubic foot depending on its depth, sometimes even more if rain conditions occur!
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.

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.
