Every building starts with a frame. While many of us are used to these frames being made of wood, what if there was an even stronger option that would last even longer? This is where metal framing comes in.
A home or commercial space constructed using a metal frame will be constructed faster due to the light weight of the metal studs and flexibility of installation techniques. Commercial spaces especially have caught on to the benefits of steel framing systems with more than 40% of these structures being built using this material.
Steel frame construction is the clear option when it comes to long-lasting durability and affordability. Give Precision Custom Construction, Inc. a call today to see how metal studs can make a difference on your construction site!
Reasons to Choose Metal
When most people think about choosing a metal frame for their home or business over wood, the advantages become obvious quite quickly.
Metal studs are light making them simple to transport. Unlike wood, metal is a solid material that won’t warp in cold or warm temperatures. And, when it comes to durability, steel framing systems win out every time.
Metal framing is recommended for seismic zones for its strength, and since it is not a porous material, you’ll never have to worry about termites and other destructive insects. And of course, steel is also fireproof.
Steel Frame Construction Cost
With its many advantages over wood framing including resistance to fire, earthquakes, and strong winds, it’s easy to assume that metal studs are a costly investment.
Made of 25% recycled material, steel frame homes and business cost on average between $9.50-11 per square foot with an added $3 for materials. Considering that wood framing will put you out $2-12 per square foot with an added cost for materials, you could find yourself saving money.
