How climate affects your steel metal building construction


When planning any steel building construction, it’s vital to consider climate and weather. Here are some common weather conditions your building might face:

Heavy snow loads – in the winter, snow can pack pounds of weight onto a steel metal building. Your building must be able to withstand this substantial weight. Commercial-grade steel can be strong enough to hold the load, while design elements such as a pitched roof will ensure snow slides off without causing structural issues.

Rain – rain can eventually cause rusting to the metal which can cause it to break down. A gutter system on your steel building will drain rain away to prevent this.

Temperature extremes – extreme cold and heat can be uncomfortable for those living or working within a building, which can increase energy consumption. Properly insulating your steel metal building is key. Fiberglass, mineral wool, and cellulose are a few of the insulation options available.
