Metal Building Advantages
Pre-engineered metal buildings are often used today for one and two-story buildings because they provide benefits like durability, speed of construction, design flexibility, attractive appearance, and energy efficiency, as well are cost effective to construct and maintain. Metal buildings come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but at their core they all utilize a custom engineered structural steel frame and a high-performance metal roof.

  • Shorter construction time
  • Faster erection
  • Durable, long life span construction
  • Cost effective to construct and maintain
  • Ease of expansion
  • Energy efficiency
  • Withstands harsh weather and temperatures

Design Versatility
While metal wall panels are a popular option, sometimes the metal panels are substituted or combined with masonry, stone, pre-cast or tilt-up concrete, wood, glass or other architectural wall treatments. The versatility and flexibility of metal building systems allows for a myriad of colors, shapes, textures, and designs.

  • Intriguing options in defining mass, space, proportion, and symmetry
  • Long, column-free spans
  • Curved, bent or decorative accents
  • Semicurcular and segmental arches
  • Seamless integration with glass, stone, brick, wood, and more
  • Sloped roofs and daylight elements
  • Allows for a myraid of colors, shapes, and textures
  • Special facades and decorative options

Pre-engineered metal buildings are an attractive, worthwhile, and lasting investment.
