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.
