The steel buildings available from American Steel Carports can be used for a wide variety of purposes and can potentially offer greater benefits than you’ll find with virtually any other conventional construction material. Why choose steel? The advantages are numerous.

 

 

Steel Versus Other Building Materials

 

When looking at cost per square foot, steel will be comparable to wood and other conventional building materials for buildings larger than about 1,200 to 1,500 square feet. But even if you find that your steel building is a relatively larger initial investment, over the long run, your structure can be significantly less expensive to own and maintain.

 

Benefits of Steel Buildings

 

Low Maintenance – A steel building is easier to maintain and clean than structures made of wood or brick. And Heritage’s superior paint warranty guarantees against peeling, fading, chalking, or cracking.

 

Energy Efficient – Proper insulation can save money on heating and cooling costs. With the right insulation, animals or livestock can be housed in a steel building.

 

Durable – Steel buildings do not rot like wood and can stand up to constant use and strong weather conditions, including wind, rain, snow, and seismic events.

 

Pest Resistant – Metal is not susceptible to termites and other destructive pests.

 

Fire Retardant – Steel is not vulnerable to fire hazards.

 

Less Expensive to Insure – Because of its superior strength and durability, as well as its resistance to fire and other natural disasters, your insurance costs may be lower if you choose a steel building over one made with other materials.
