The strength, durability and resilience of metal buildings encourages people to use this building material in homes, carports and smaller outbuildings.
Well known items like cars and computers are made of steel. Larger structures like bridges and space shuttles have always been made of it. Buildings were preferably made from wood or bricks, but certain metals have gained preference in these structures.
There are no potential structural weaknesses in steel structures. Wood poses the problem of weakness in knots or splits. It can also warp or bend or twist under pressure. The metal materials are made according to strict specifications for durable buildings. They have the added advantage of being one hundred percent recyclable. They can also slow down the spread of fire and structural damage.
Mold and mildew can not develop and thrive in iron buildings as it needs a moist and porous environment. The absence of wood in the building will alleviate the suffering of people who have allergies to mold. Homes in rural areas are more susceptible to the problems of pests. Termites, rodents and other household pests will not settle in a home that does not have soft wood for them to burrow into.
Metals are lighter and can be integrated with wood and concrete according to the requirements of the client. An iron framework will cause far less stress on the foundations.
