15 Reasons for the Popularity of the PEMB

Why Would You Build with Anything Else?

A pre-engineered metal building, also known as a PEMB, saves you time, money, and hassles.  Is it any wonder that steel now frames over 66% of all new low-rise commercial and industrial projects?

So why should you use a PEMB for your next construction project?  The following fifteen reasons show why PEMBs are the clear winner among popular construction companies.

A PEMB Saves Time

#1:  Prefab metal buildings are manufactured specifically for your needs.

#2:  All a PEMB’s pieces are prefabricated at the factory.  The kit arrives at the job site ready to assemble.  A PEMB erects fast, framing in about one-third less time than other building systems.

#3:  Steel never changes shape with differing humidity levels as lumber does.  Consequently, a PEMB does not deteriorate and warp, twist, creep, and sag like wood structures do over time.  You spend time using your building, not repairing your building.

A PEMB Saves Money

#4:  Time is money.  Since a PEMB erects in 33% less time, it significantly cuts construction labor costs.

#5:  Framing with a pre-engineered metal building kit is a simple systematic assembly, much like a giant erector set.  Therefore, many buyers erect the building themselves with a few friends, saving even more on PEMB construction expenses.

#6:  All the PEMB framing is prefabricated, reducing waste.  You only pay for what you actually use.  Sell any leftover metal to a recycler for scrap.

#7:  Most insurance companies offer significant discounts for a PEMB, because commercial-grade steel is so fire resistant.

#8:  RHINO’s optional Pro-Value Insulation System slashes utility bills in half!

#9:  Inorganic steel never supports mold or attracts termites.  That eliminates the need for expensive mold remediation and strong chemical termiticide treatments.

#10:  Durable pre-engineered metal buildings keep their value and good looks for decades.

A PEMB Prevents Trouble Later

#11:  A virtually maintenance-free PEMB avoids constant repairs.

#12:  Wood buildings sag and shift over time.  A pre-engineered metal building goes up straight and true— and it stays that way year after year.

#13:  Finished in strong and attractive colored steel panels, PEMBs eliminate the need for repainting every few years.  Alternatively, finish the PEMB with brick, stone, glass, or other traditional building materials.

#14:  Expanding a PEMB is easy and economical.  Even interior remodeling is more convenient in a pre-engineered metal building.  There are no load-bearing walls to interfere with floor plan changes.

#15:  The strength of steel provides better protection from fire, lightning, winds, snows, and earthquakes than wood construction.

Consider a PEMB for your next project.  From backyard storage to a mega-warehouse, the best deal is always a RHINO steel building.
