Custom Build Your Steel Frame Home
Why Build With Steel?
  • Steel doesn't warp, crack, split, shrink, swell, shift, or bow. It remains
    one of the strongest most durable building materials today.
  • A Steel framed home can be built to withstand up to 155-200 m/hr
    winds providing increased protection from hurricanes and
  • Steel is non-combustible, so a steel frame won't contribute to the
    spread of a fire.
  • A Steel frame is 40% more energy efficient because the depth of the
    steel beams provide more room for insulation.  
  • Because a steel frame can withstand so many natural elements, it will
    reduce your cost on maintenance as well as insurance premiums.  
  • Building with steel is better for the environment.  A steel framed home
    can be made with steel from 6 recycled cars; while it takes an acre of
    full grown trees to build a 2,000 sq ft. house.
