Your roof is subject to incredible stress, from snow to rain and wind, which is why it's important that it be strong, durable and properly installed, requiring little maintenance and providing many years of hassle-free protection.
Steel metal is an incredibly cost-effective and strong roofing material, and will likely never need to be replaced during its lifetime.
BuildingsGuide represents many suppliers of both styles of pre-engineered steel structures with different roofing styles: traditional straight-wall buildings, and Quonset hut style buildings.
A Quonset building has a rounded corrugated arched roof, which has a well-earned reputation for its incredible strength and resilience, especially against earthquakes, hurricanes, and gale-force winds.
The architectural style was designed during the Second World War when the U.S. Navy required a lightweight building that could be easily shipped and assembled for use by their troops in Europe. The Quonset Huts, named after the town where they were first manufactured, were lightweight pre-engineered steel structures. The building style became popular for its large column-free, clearspan space inside, and the strength of its corrugated roof, which provided safety during bomb raids.
With metal shop buildings, you won’t have to be constantly replacing parts as is often the case with a wood building due to wood’s tendency to warp, crack and rot in response to harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, and cold temperatures.
In fact, steel has been shown to be much more durable than wood, which means you will save money on replacement costs and you won’t have to waste valuable time repairing your shop building.
If your area is subject to severe weather events such as hurricanes and tornadoes the strength of steel can offer a safe refuge from the harshest conditions Mother Nature has to throw at you.
That’s why, with a metal shop building, it is truly a case of “build it and forget about it.”
