Did you know that over half of the world’s steel is used to make steel buildings and infrastructure? Steel is an amazing metal that is versatile, strong, durable, affordable and can be recycled which is a hot topic at the moment.
Steel is a metal that should be used more in our home for its amazing benefits and below you can find out more about the different ways in which steel can be used to make our homes more sustainable and then you can consider purchasing one of the many steel buildings for sale.
Steel Is Recyclable
More and more people are now becoming aware of the changes we all need to make to be more conscious about the Earth and the critical need to recycle more. What’s amazing about steel and why it needs to be used more in the future is that it is the most recycled material in the world and anything in your home that is made from this metal can be recycled! So, instead of this steel sitting in a scrap heap and polluting the earth, it can instead be used to make something else such as a car door or even a bolt in a plane. The possibilities are endless!
Another great thing about the use of steel in our homes is that it has a huge lifespan and this longevity means that you can save money, time and resources as there is no need to constantly be rebuilding. To exemplify this, the steel buildings for sale at Armstrong Steel have a 50 year structural warranty, 35 year roof warranty and 40 year paint warranty which shows just how long-lasting these buildings are made to be.
Weight and Durability
This material is now lighter than it has ever been but it is still extremely strong thanks to clever design and high strength. As it is now so much lighter, this makes it cheaper to transport, construct and assemble, plus there is the environmental effect in that this will result in less CO2 emission going into the atmosphere.
What you may not know about steel is that it can save you energy as it is a great insulator. Energy is not lost as much when using steel which means you can enjoy lower energy bills and are not doing as much damage to the planet.
No matter what climate it is that you live in, steel will be a great option for you. If you live in a warmer climate, the heat will radiate from a steel roof and create a cooler environment, whilst in cold climates, steel can contain heat. This is great if you are looking to get a steel building for your outdoor space or to use as a garage.
It’s Quick and Easy
Finally, the last reason why steel is great to use and can help to make it more environmentally sustainable is that it is quick and easy to use. The different steel parts will be cut exactly to size and fit off-site and so once it has been transported to you it should be easy for you to build and you won’t need too many pairs of helping hands to have it built in no time at all.
