The Advantages of a Steel Structure:
Often, contractors are faced with building a structure on a tight schedule. As deadlines approach there must be a way to maintain structural integrity and safety while getting the job done as quickly as possible. For these types of projects, steel is a good option. Erecting a steel structure is fast. Materials are readily available and can be fabricated to specifications rapidly, according to the Steel Engineering Inc. website. Steel framing also goes together quickly and can cut down on the man hours needed to complete the task.
Steel has the advantage of being among the most durable and strong construction materials available. Wooden framed structures can rot over time and may fall victim to insect infestation by bugs that eat away at the wood and cause structural damage. Steel does not rot like wood and is not going to be eaten by termites or other wood-gnawing insects. Steel also does not warp in changing temperatures like wood and lasts much longer, resulting in less maintenance.
Steel is also safe. It is strong enough to withstand hurricane force winds and even earthquakes.
