Steel is one of the most widely-used construction metals in the world, one that customers seem to prefer time and time again. Not only is it chosen for its durability and resistance to corrosion, but also for its cost-effectiveness and low maintenance requirements. Many custom storage units today are made of steel, bringing many people peace of mind with its security and ease of installation.
Here are a few reasons to invest in steel building storage units:
Steel building have a simpler design compared to those made from other materials, allowing manufacturers the ability to pre-plan and pre-assemble most parts. Once you have the required permits for your custom building, we will coordinate with a manufacturer in your area for the installation. While the fabrication of your custom building may take up to a few weeks, the installation process can usually be completed in a day, depending on the weather conditions in your area.
There are many components to steel buildings, including finishes and gauges, that can lead to a variety of customization’s. Options regarding coatings and finishes allow you to prevent damage that may occur with all harsh elements. There are water shedding features in steel buildings that prevent water from accumulating in case of a downpour, which leads to less chances of leaks or water corrosion damaging your valuables.
The nature of a steel building makes it easily adaptable, and you can always decide to continue to modify your structure’s appearance and functionality as your needs change. Your storage unit can be expanded, end walls can be added, and you can even add a floor! There are also many options for exterior walls including wood siding, stone, faux brick, and much more. The choice is up to you, depending on your tastes and preferences.
Both durability and maintenance should be taken into consideration when people decide the type of building they desire, metal or traditional. A steel storage unit’s roof will last for 30 years or more, as compared to 10-15 years for a traditional unit. Coatings such as zinc or aluminum are available for interior walls that will extend their life with basic maintenance. Your valuables will stay protected from the elements in a steel building and can also be protected from fire if insulated properly.
