What Are The Benefits of Prefabricated Metal Buildings?

Posted by CDMG Team on May 27, 2020 12:47:48 PM

A metal building system is just that; a system.  

 

Pre-engineered steel building systems include four different types of steel framing designed to work together.

 

The typical steel red-iron wall columns and ceiling pieces attach to form the frame of the building in the primary system.  

 

The secondary framing of a prefabricated building connects across the bays with self-drilling screws for lateral support. 

 

The third part of the metal building system is the end wall framing.

 

And finally, steel wall and roof panels that are corrosion-resistant complete the metal building system.

 

These panels create the exterior of the structure.

 

And, if you don't want your prefabricated metal building to look like, well, a metal building, they can be finished with any typical building material to achieve the "look" you need.  

 

Brick, stone, glass, block, tilt-up concrete, or even wood make attractive exteriors for prefabricated metal buildings.

 

One of the main questions people have when considering a prefabricated metal building is if it can have a basement.

 

In the article below, we will answer that question and talk about several benefits that come with a prefabricated metal building.

What Is A Pre-Engineered Metal Building?

If you're looking for a convenient, cost-effective alternative to conventional construction, pre-engineered metal buildings are just what you're looking for.

Pre-engineered metal buildings are often used for commercial spaces, but they can be designed to meet the needs of any builder.

Pre-engineered metal buildings are cost-efficient, customizable, quicker to construct and erect than traditional methods.

But what exactly is a pre-engineered metal building? We'll talk about that in the article below.

Metal Building Sustainability | How Steel Is Recycled

Posted by CDMG Team on Feb 24, 2020 1:01:18 PM

There are many benefits to use a steel building for your next project rather than a traditional timber building.

They are more cost efficient in the long-term, they require little routine maintenance and upkeep, they construct quickly, and they last for generations.

They are also very eco-friendly.

Steel buildings produce fewer emissions when they're being constructed, they are more energy efficient because of the insulation and painting options, and they last longer, so there's no need to rebuild or repair.

They also don't use as many resources during construction.

If you frame your house using pine, the average home requires 22 full grown pine trees just for the frame.

When you take all the extras into account, like hardwood floors, cabinets, furniture, etc. could easily double the number of trees used.

When all is said and done, you're looking at 50 mature pine trees being used in the construction of one home. In large developments, the number of trees needed for construction adds up quickly.

And once you've used the lumber, it can't be recycled. You can plant a new tree, and wait years and years for it to grow, but you can't reuse the tree you've already cut down.

This is where steel buildings have a significant advantage.

There are obviously zero trees needed to construct a steel building.

And, since steel is the most recycled product in the world, once you're done with it, you can recycle it, and it becomes something else.

That's not the case with lumber.

In the article below, we will give you an overview of recycling metal, it's importance, and the various processes.

How To Finance Your New Metal Building

Posted by CDMG Team on Feb 17, 2020 4:12:03 PM

There's a lot of information out there about home loans and mortgage options, but when it comes to finding information about new construction loans, it's not quite as easy to get the information that you need.

Financing your metal building, however, is no different from financing a traditional wood-framed structure.

In fact, because of their durability and longevity, choosing a pre-engineered metal building could even make you a more appealing loan candidate.

If you're using your metal building on a farm or a ranch, you might even be able to use special grants and/or loan offers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. You can find out more about that on the USDA website.

No matter what you plan on using your metal building for, there is a financing option available for you.

In the article below, we'll discuss several of those options, and we'll talk about a few additional considerations, so you're prepared when the time comes.

Should I Invest In A Metal Building Or Add On To My Current Building?

Posted by CDMG Team on Feb 3, 2020 9:21:24 AM

It's not uncommon for a business to outgrow their initial facilities.

It's actually a good sign if you do because needing more space typically means you've accomplished some level of success.

But, when that time comes, it means you have to make a pretty big decision: do you move your business into a new facility, or do you expand your existing facilities.

If you chose to use a metal building to set up your business in when you first started, you're in luck. Either option is realistic for you.

People who have timber buildings will find it more difficult to expand their current facilities, whereas metal buildings are easily expandable.

Even if you do have a metal building, it can still be a tough decision to make with many factors to consider.

In the article below, we'll look at a few of the factors you should consider when making that decision, and then we'll talk about expanding your metal building.
