Why use steel for my house extension?
Steel building isn’t only for the construction of large buildings such as office blocks. Offering a versatile way to extend a property whilst keeping building costs to a minimum, steel house extensions are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners.
Steel is incredibly versatile and although steel beams are already widely used in the majority of house extensions, it can also offer a range of benefits including:
Steel can be included in almost every stage of a building project, from floor joists and the frame of a building through to roofing.
Steel framed buildings are lighter than those constructed from wood, resulting in a reduced need for extensive foundation work.
Building with steel is faster than with other materials and because all components are manufactured off-site, they can be quickly and efficiently assembled once the site is ready.
The steel fabrication process is highly controlled which means that the chance of human error is significantly reduced. This helps to avoid costly delays (and the stress) of things going wrong, reducing the overall build time and therefore cutting costs.
Steel is incredibly durable and unlike wood or concrete, it will not corrode, rot or crack. It can also withstand fire, high winds and even heavy snow falls.
