Using steel in home construction

Topic: Home buying

Until recently steel metal construction was primarily used for industrial buildings and the occasional home garage or storage shed project. Commercial and industrial types of construction still account for about 7 out of 10 steel constructions in the US. However, there is a rapidly growing market for using prefabricated steel to create steel metal homes for residential consumers. Many people have been inspired by the large home that US television's Duggar family resides in. This home, which the family of 21 built themselves, is an example of a prefabricated steel home.

A steel metal homes construction is typically prefabricated. This means that all of the materials are cut and labeled in a shop owned by the manufacturer. They are then sent out to a consumer or contractor, already labeled and planned. These materials are then very easy to put together, compared to other types of construction. Everything is labeled and ready to go. The frame is put together simply by screwing together the parts according to the manufacturers indications.

Steel frame homes are usually made out of triple layered galvanized materials, or stronger. Most manufactures that sale prefabricated steel metal homes allow the consumer to choose a package that consists of the frame home, or the entire home. An entire home package would contain all the necessary materials in addition to the tubing frame with steel tubing fittings needed to make the home.

In case you haven't seen one of these prefabricated steel metal homes it is important to note that the steel part refers primarily to the frame, don't worry you won't be living in a giant tin box. The homes are just as beautiful as traditionally built homes, and a lot more durable. Some of the great benefits of steel metal homes are that they are mold, fire, and termite resistant; these three circumstances alone amount for almost all home repairs.

In addition to being resistant to most types of damage, steel metal homes are much more durable and hardy than traditionally built homes. They can sustain far greater wind speeds than most homes, and are therefore much safer in areas where hurricanes are a large factor. This is in addition the fact that they do not rot or mold, in case of water damage from the same storm. Making new residential construction in high hurricane areas entirely out of steel metal would save millions each year.

Not only are steel metal homes much safer and more durable for family homes, but they are also are much quicker to build. Having a prefabricated steel metal home built can cut the work load in half. This can save the homeowner money when it comes to labor fees. In addition to this, the materials themselves or practically the same prices, and sometimes cheaper, than the materials used in standard home construction.

It is hard to imagine why any future homeowner would not at the least consider the option of steel metal construction. A steel metal home will likely save money and time. It is also a safer structure, and can save a fortune in insurance payments when it comes to the variety of types of home damage that steel metal homes have resistance to.
