Steel buildings offer a number of benefits for commercial and industrial use. You may not have realized, however, that these Houston building systems are also commonly used for residential developments. Making your home in a steel building may seem a little strange but with advances in technology, a steel home can look no different than traditionally built homes. The same features that make these buildings attractive for commercial applications can provide real benefits for home buyers in our area.
Durability and Reliability
Houston metal buildings are more durable than other materials and can stand up to the worst of wind, weather and other potential threats more effectively.
- Depending on the type of building you choose, your new home may be able to withstand winds of up to 150 miles per hour without sustaining serious damage. This can provide you with greater peace of mind during serious storms.
- Steel and metal homes are also capable of standing up to seismic events like earthquakes more effectively than comparable wood-frame buildings.
- Properly treated and maintained steel can last for many years and is impervious to the attentions of termites and other insects, allowing you to forego regular inspections for these unwanted guests in your home.
- Steel is naturally flame resistant to reduce the risk of fire to your residential structure.
Steel can provide added protection against these threats while ensuring the most comfortable surroundings for you and your family.
Houston steel buildings can be insulated to provide a barrier between the inside of your home and uncomfortable temperatures outside. Steel roofs are especially effective in conserving energy and can be designed to reflect solar energy and to reduce heating of the spaces just under your roof. This can help you to save money on cooling your home in the summer and can promote a more comfortable environment for you and your family inside your Houston steel home.
Steel is 100-percent recyclable and can be reused over and over to ensure the most effective utilization of available resources. Even the building process for these steel structures is less complex and requires fewer workers to complete in a timely way. By opting for steel Houston building systems for your new home, you can enjoy the most sustainable living spaces in the modern construction industry.
