Many people have heard about steel house frames but don't know the benefits of steel framing. So is it really possible to construct a building with steel framing? Yes, it is. Steel framing provides a number of advantages and solutions for some building problems that are often faced by builders, homeowners, and contractors.
The cost is a major concern for every builder and homeowner and costs directly affect the decision to build a house. What many people don't realize is that steel building frame components are more cost-effective than wood framing, allowing more to be built with less money.
One of the greatest benefits of steel house framing is the strength of steel, and damage by moisture & heat or warping is never an issue or concern with steel frames. A steel frame home or building will hold up against the elements all year round and pests such as termites will not be a problem compared to wood-frame homes and buildings.
With the benefits of strength that steel frames provide, more variety of room styles and shapes become available as well as opportunities to have greater open floor plans and spaces. Also by taking advantage of the strength of steel, you won’t need load-bearing walls that are required in a typical home that uses wood framing.
Green homes are becoming more popular with people & governments, and going green has become a major concern across the world. The greatest benefit of steel house framing is that it is good for the environment. By using steel framing in homes and commercial buildings, fewer trees will be chopped down and people can contribute in a positive way to help stave off deforestation.
