Are you contemplating employing steel construction in Indiana for an upcoming project and wanting to be sure that steel is the building material that makes the most sense for your needs?
Learn more about why steel is a great choice for your project both now and for years to come.
Steel is extremely durable
Did you know that steel has a higher strength-to-weight ratio when compared to all other building materials? This makes it an excellence choice for buildings and projects of all sizes and types.
Also, because steel fabricators are required to meet national standards in steel production, the steel used for your project is consistently high quality, helping to ensure uniform results that will stand the test of time.
Steel is resistant to fire and many other types of damage
Unlike wood, steel will not catch fire. Also, steel will not crack, warp, rot or otherwise become damaged in the ways that wood or another material might. Not only does this help to guarantee a high-quality steel building or other steel item for the long term, but the level of maintenance required to take care of the steel is considerably lower than it would be for other materials.
Steel is also able to withstand hurricanes, strong winds and earthquakes, which could be particularly beneficial, depending on your geographic location.
Steel is environmentally friendly
Steel is the most recycled—and recyclable—material in the world. Given this, it doesn’t come as a surprise that estimates indicate that any steel building or other steel item probably includes 25 percent or more recycled steel. Steel is one of only several metals that remains recyclable over its lifetime. In addition, when steel is recycled, it is not weakened, meaning that it is an optimal choice to be reused continuously.
The environmentally friendly nature of steel, in addition to its durability, can frequently make it a more cost-effective metal to use for a project than wood or even some other metals. And as a steel building approaches the end of its life, often as much as 90 percent or more of its steel can be used again or incorporated into another steel product, which saves energy over creating new steel.
Working with steel is also typically safer than working with or being exposed to other materials, as preservatives and pesticide treatments are not necessary.
