How Metal Buildings Cut Material Costs There is a reason you never see a high-rise building framed with lumber or concrete. The same incredible strength that supports today’s skyscrapers also frames over 50% of today’s commercial low-rise structures and 95% of… Read More

Should You Build with Steel or Concrete?

Part 2: Which Material is Easiest on the Pocketbook and the Planet? Our last blog discussed whether steel or concrete is the best building material for low-rise construction.  It compared the pros and cons of each system in four categories: design, size, availability, and safety. But will a prefab steel system or reinforced concrete structure give you the most bang-for-your-building-buck? Moreover, is steel or concrete the best choice for the environment? Material Costs CONCRETE:  The price of concrete itself remains… Read More

I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosting

How to Bust Those Ghostly Stains on Walls and Ceilings Without warning, odd dark streaks called “ghosting” begin to appear on your walls or ceilings.  Soon, the blemishes grow darker, forming along wall studs or ceiling rafters.  Before long, a creepy outline of the building’s framing starts to appear on the sheetrock. Who you gonna call? What Causes Ghosting? Ghosting is the slow buildup of air-borne dust, dirt, and soot particles on walls or ceilings.  Also known as “ghost stains,”… Read More

Steel Buildings in Delaware

Why “The First State” Should Choose Metal Buildings The idea of pre-engineered steel buildings in Delaware is certainly not new. Prefab metal buildings abound in the state. Aircraft hangars, barns, stables, churches, commercial enterprises, recreational structures, storage buildings, as well as warehouses and other industrial structures in Delaware, commonly use a pre-engineered metal building (PEMB) system. First in Progress As the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution in 1787, Delaware gained the reputation of being the first to embrace… Read More

How Metal Buildings Cut Operating Costs

The Long-Term Financial Benefits of Prefab Steel Buildings Prefabricated metal buildings cost less to build than wood structures. However, construction accounts for only part of the savings. Steel building owners continue to save money year after year. Look at the ways pre-engineered metal buildings cut operating costs: Slash Utility Bills by 50% The deeper wall cavities of a pre-engineered metal building provide room for thicker insulation. Well-insulated steel buildings save energy. By installing the our extra-thick Pro-Value Insulation Package with… Read More

Is It a Pre-engineered or a Prefab Building?

Understanding Building System Terms You’ve probably seen construction articles throwing around terms like “prefab building,” “pre-engineered building” and “modular building.”  But what do these terms actually mean?  Let’s get down to basics. Pre-engineered Building A pre-engineered building generally refers to a metal building. Steel lends itself particularly well to pre-engineering.  Steel’s properties and strength are well known.  Created in mills according to strict industry standards, steel’s load-carrying properties are consistent and verifiable. Just as the name “pre-engineered” implies, a structural… Read More

Incredible Adaptable Prefab Metal Buildings

Why Steel Buildings Rule in Low-Rise Construction Prefab metal buildings dominate low-rise construction— and with good reason.  Economical to build, simple to erect, and cost-effective to operate, pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMB) are adaptable and reliable.  Today PEMBs are the first choice for all commercial and industrial low-rise construction— and for residential accessory buildings, too. Incredibly Flexible Designs A fundamental rectangular box makes the most useful, economical, and material-efficient building design.  That’s the “sweet spot” for prefab steel buildings. With today’s… Read More

The Devastating Dilemma of Disaster Debris

After the Storm: Disposing of the Mountains of Rubble The amount of disaster debris heaped up by tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and other natural calamities boggles the imagination. As south Texans muck-out the mess left by Hurricane Harvey, they can sympathize with the Floridians facing Hurricane Irma clean up. Following a catastrophic event, victims of the storm are at first shell-shocked. Little by little, reality sets in and they begin the overwhelming job of sifting through the ruins of their homes… Read More

How Steel Buildings Resist Wind Damage

Building to Combat Furious Storm Winds Pre-engineered steel buildings are designed and engineered to stand up to damaging winds and other natural disasters. (As I post this blog, Hurricane Harvey is creeping toward the Texas coast, gaining strength over the warm waters of the Gulf.  As of this posting, Hurricane Harvey's winds have reached 110 MPH.) Which Way the Wind Blows Although we typically think of wind damage as resulting from hurricanes battering coastal areas, savage winds can strike anywhere.… Read More
