Choosing to build a steel framed house offers a number of benefits. Whether your aim is to create a home which pushes the boundaries of design, or are interested in the practical benefits steel frame construction offers, using steel can prove beneficial in a range of ways including:
Steel framed homes offer an impressive strength to weight ratio whilst providing the opportunity to create a unique and flexible design.
The construction of steel framed houses tends to be faster than other building methods as all steel components are manufactured off-site and delivered ready to be assembled. This reduces construction time, helping to save money on the overall cost of the project.
Using steel is good for the environment as the majority of steel used in the UK construction industry has already been recycled. Steel is infinitely recyclable and can be reused again and again.
Steel is incredibly durable and unlike wood will not split, crack or rot. Whilst steel can corrode, the chances of this happening are reduced by using galvanised steel and ensuring their is a cavity in external walls.
Steel is incredibly versatile and because of it’s superior strength, can be used to create wide span open spaces. Steel framed construction offers the ideal way to build everything from house extensions and homes, through to large buildings such as warehouses and factories.
As steel is relatively light, it is often the case that shallow foundations are sufficient, further helping to reduce build time and costs.
