Steel studs don’t warp, rot, split, crack or creep. They don’t burn in a fire. They are stronger, straighter and dimensionally stable. You won’t get nail pops or drywall cracks. Plus steel is 100% recyclable and studs are pre-punched for plumbing and electrical.

A number of questions arise about a steel building’s ability to resist the extremes of the elements. The tight connections that steel buildings feature along with the inherent strength of steel make a steel building extremely resistant to snow, rain, wind or seismic activity. In fact, the strength of steel combined with its flexibility makes it, arguably, the best material available for an earthquake resistant design.

In today’s environmentally conscious world the question comes up about how steel construction will affect the indoor air quality of the structure. The answer is that the use of steel will actually enhance the quality of the air in the interior. Many environmental organizations recommend the use of steel framing for chemically sensitive homeowners who want good air quality. Steel does not have to be treated for insects, and is free of resin adhesives and chemicals that are normally prevalent in other construction materials.

Questions about the interior of a steel building also arise. The interior walls of a steel building may need to have pictures, displays, or other items hung from them. How is this accomplished? If the interior of the steel building has drywall, toggle bolts or hangars may be utilized. If there are heavier objects that need to be hung this may be accomplished with screws that are attached directly into the studs.
