Metal Buildings Are Becoming The New Go-To In Home Construction
While regular wood frame construction may be great options for some home-buyers, metal building homes are growing in popularity across the nation due to many benefits not a lot of people know about.
For example; cost savings, durability and the ability to custom design steel houses relatively easily. The main advantage of living in a metal home is they are a lot quicker and more convenient to build, but they are also cheaper and easier to maintain.
On average a steel home costs between $50 and $65 per square foot, this is on average 30 percent cheaper than a traditional home. Unlike other homes, steel is most often thought of as a one-time cost.
For younger homeowners seeking to save money while still making a longstanding investment in their property, metal houses may be the most logical option. A metal home can average around 30-40% savings compared to a standard wood framed home.
Metal building homes are the future of affordable, reliable, and customizable residencies. Whether you’re buying your first home, investing in a vacation property, or looking for a flexible home for your growing family, metal homes can offer you everything you need for your next space.
Home-buyers have searched for alternatives to traditional construction over the past several decades. Steel has evolved into a desirable residential space not only due to affordability, but also due to ease of expansion and lower insurance costs.
Metal buildings are extremely resistant to fire, and insurance companies can also recognize that advantage. I would always contact more than one insurance provider for a better quote. One insurance company may not class a metal building as a noncombustible dwelling but the second one may. (Metal Buildings almost always fall in the noncombustible category, in the insurance world that means a class 3)
“NONCOMBUSTIBLE (Construction Class 3)
These are buildings with exterior walls, floors, and roof of
noncombustible or slow-burning materials supported by
noncombustible or slow-burning supports. Metal buildings
normally fall into this category”
