Observe farms across the UK and you’ll find that most have steel framed buildings erected in them. Durable and flexible, steel can be used to construct barns, stables, machines and equipment storage, among others.
Are you venturing into modern farming? Here are six reasons why buildings framed with steel are a wise investment.
Faster and more affordable to build. If you want to have farm sheds constructed on your property in a few weeks’ time without compromising quality, opting for steel framed ones is highly advised. Most of the structural elements are already prefabricated in a factory. Then they will only need to be assembled on site. Pre-engineered farm metal buildings are not only time-saving, but they’re also available in a budget-friendly price range.
Economical to maintain. These structures can last even longer than traditional farm buildings. And a great thing about it is that you won’t have to spend much just to maximise their decades-long lifespan. In addition, they require little maintenance — a fresh coat of paint can already make them look brand-new again.
Resistant to mold and pests. Their being resistant to these unwanted things also contribute to their durability and ease of maintenance. To control and repair termite damage, more than $5 billion are being spent annually. This is for termite damage alone. If mould thrives in your farm structures, it’s another costly and headache-inducing issue. You can avoid having such problems in the first place if you’ll invest in structures that are resistant to them.
Customisable and versatile. You can erect farm sheds and other steel framed structures the way you want it, as long as your farm has adequate space for them. As they are highly customisable, they can be designed to fit your needs and accommodate a wide range of farming needs — from shelters for livestock, storage areas for equipment or produce, to workshop spaces. If your demands change over time, these buildings are also easier and more cost-effective to remodel.
Clean look. Do you know just how strong steel structures are? They can span up to 300-foot wide without interior columns to support them. Unlike other traditional buildings, they also have uncluttered ceilings. Both these characteristics don’t just guarantee more space and prevent birds from nesting in your buildings — they also help you achieve a cleaner look.
Environmentally friendly. Steel is considered one of the most recycled materials. If you want your agricultural property to be as sustainable as it can be, having steel framed structures is one of the things that you can do. Once you decide you want to replace your old steel frames, there are many businesses out there where you can sell them and have them recycled.
