Pre-engineered metal buildings are DURABLE.
Pre-engineered steel buildings are incredibly durable and have the ability to withstand heavy snowfall, high winds and event earthquakes. Other measures can be taken to further improve the durability of the roof panels by coating them with an aluminum compound, galvalume, to prevent rusting and increase the life of the panels. These structures are also non-combustible so it’s unlikely they will be destroyed by fire.
Pre-engineered metal buildings are ENERGY EFFICIENT.
Rigid frame steel buildings can be insulated far better than the typical wood frame steel building, which boosts energy efficiency and can result in savings on heating and cooling costs. Also, depending upon the structure of the building and location, business owners have the opportunity to utilize solar on their metal rooftop panels to reduce their carbon footprint and create an even more energy efficient facility.
Pre-engineered metal buildings are FLEXIBLE.
Pre-engineered buildings structural design can be customized to include few to no interior columns, resulting in an interior layout that is more flexible and better for storing large pieces of equipment, installing lifts, and conducting indoor activities. The ease of customization also allows the opportunity to have much larger door openings (e.g. overhead, rolling or sliding doors) allowing for better storage of equipment or materials large and small.
Pre-engineered metal buildings are COST EFFECTIVE.
Pre-engineered steel buildings are proven to cost less than traditional construction for various reasons. More often than not, the installation process with pre-engineered buildings is usually not affected by delays like traditional construction. Since prefabricated buildings simply need to be assembled, there are rarely any surprise additional job cost increases.
