Common questions

  • What gauge metal is used for steel framed homes?

    The main primary frames for steel-framed homes are manufactured from heavy gauge steel I-beams. The secondary framing is made from 12 to 16-gauge cold rolled steel. The wall and roof sheeting is also made from cold rolled steel and is available in either 24 or 26-gauge.

  • What are the disadvantages of steel homes?

    Steel homes have several advantages, such as durability, strength, and resistance to pests and natural disasters. However, they also have some disadvantages that should be considered before deciding to build or buy one. Here are some of the most common drawbacks of steel homes:

    1. Heat and cold transfer: Steel is a good conductor of heat, which means that it can transfer heat into or out of the home more easily than other materials.

    2. Noise: Steel homes can be noisy, especially during rain or hail storms. This is because steel amplifies sound more than other materials.

    3. Appearance: Some people do not like the appearance of steel homes, which can be more industrial or modern-looking than traditional homes.

    4. Corrosion: While steel is a durable material, it can still corrode over time if it is not properly maintained.

    5. Limited design options: Because steel is a relatively new material for home construction, fewer design options are available than with more traditional materials like wood.

    Overall, steel homes can be a good option for some people, but they do come with some drawbacks that should be carefully considered before making a decision.
