Houston steel buildings can provide numerous advantages for business owners and residents of our area. Strong and durable, these rugged buildings can stand up to the worst of wind and weather and look great year after year. Best of all, steel and metal buildings can even save you money on insurance both during the construction process and for years of reliable use. Here are some key reasons why insurers are willing to offer discount rates for metal buildings in our area.
Metal and steel buildings require a smaller crew and less time to complete, making these Houston building systems a solid choice for businesses interested in reducing the cost of their construction projects. Less time on the job site can often translate directly into reduced risks for workers. Many insurance companies respond to this lower degree of risk by reducing liability premiums for these projects.
Higher Impact Resistance
Hail and other weather events can cause damage to roofs that can be costly to repair. Houston metal garages and other steel and metal structures typically stand up to these impacts far better than structures with traditional shingle roofs. By opting for a steel building, you can lower your insurance rates by reducing the likelihood of a hail damage claim.
Lower Risk of Fire
Metal building structures are less likely to catch on fire and typically experience less damage in a fire than their traditional counterparts. This increased resistance to fire damage and to the spread of flames can translate directly into lower insurance premiums for you and your tenants.
No Risk of Termites
Unlike wood structures, Houston steel buildings, storage facilities and other structures are not vulnerable to termites and other insect infestations. This can eliminate the chance of ongoing damage to support structures and can keep your building looking and performing at its best for many years into the future.
Resistance to Earthquakes
While most earthquakes in the Houston area are minor, making sure that your commercial buildings can stand up to these infrequent seismic events can provide you with greater peace of mind and can reduce the amount you pay for insurance in and around our city.
