One step at a time…

American Steel Carports, Inc. has chosen to go the steel route for many reasons. Steel is not only one of the strongest materials in the world to date, it is also the world’s most trusted fabrication. It is an element known to be firmly sustainable and although many may not believe that steel is environmentally friendly, according to recycled-steel.org, steel is North Americas #1 most recycled material. Each year, more steel is recycled than aluminum, paper, glass and plastic combined. It is a product that possesses great durability, and, compared to other materials, requires relatively low amounts of energy to produce.

 

Since steel is flame retardant, insurance companies reduce rates for home owners who choose steel building products.  The government has also recognized metal as an energy-efficient, eco-friendly choice, so they reward citizens with tax credits.
