How are steel barns better than wood barns?

Steel Barns

When one thinks of barns, the image that comes to mind is that of a wooden structure. In the present scenario, these barns have evolved by great degree. And in this process of evolution, new materials the makers have started using new materials. Steel is one such material gaining traction across the US.

It’s now common to find steel barns for sale online or among the contractors. Such barns are better than wooden ones, as they resist the effects of snow and rain. No issues like dampness or bowing are experienced with steel.

Wood can soak water or other elements, thereby making it prone to damage. This is why one needs to protect the barns if made up of this material. This increases the cost of maintenance, something we don’t face while using modern barns.

Due to durable nature, steel stays unaffected for decades. The impact of vehicles doesn’t cause any harm. Nor do insects damage the structure. This is not the case with wooden structures.

Some critics of modern structures argue that steel lacks aesthetic value. But, if you connect with a renowned company offering steel barns in Georgia, you will get plenty of options.

If you are getting your steel barn from Georgia-based SouthEastern Erectors, you can choose from a plenty of standard and premium colors. Some popular ones include charcoal gray, crimson red, crimson red, slate gray, and classic green. Check all the available options on our website.

Why You Should Own Your Own Steel Storage Unit

Do you ever feel that your home is one book away from being a library? Perhaps you fancy yourself a collector of rare newspapers and magazines, organized by author and decade? If you’ve accumulated a wealth of belongings over the years, you know how difficult it can be trying to sift through and junk the bulk of it. Being a savvy reader and connoisseur of steel constructions, you probably have your reasons for amassing what you own. You may even have a happy memory associated with everything in your possession.

Instead of ridding yourself of what brings you happiness, why not think about what you can do preserve them more efficiently?

Without spoiling all the fun of postulating, we’ve answered this riddle of ownership for you:

Steel.

By steel, the crew at SouthEastern Erectors means, more precisely, a steel storage unit, just for you and your treasures.

Short and Sweet Construction

Because of steel’s malleability, the construction behind your storage unit is relatively brief in duration, compared to units constructed with other materials. Once all of its parts have been shaped and created, the assembly process is simple in itself. If you contract through us at SouthEastern Erectors, you’ll get speed and professionalism, without a prefabricated design.

Immunity Against Mother Nature

As we pray for the families and communities of Texas, we cannot help but acknowledge the strength of steel in the face of winds, debris, and rainfall. Being durable at the atomic level, steel can withstand what other metals cannot. Regardless of the severity of a hurricane, or a flood, your steel storage unit will endure through the worst that Mother Nature can throw at it.

An Aesthetic Charm and Style

Whether it’s a storage unit or a barn, all steel buildings are inherently beautiful. While we may be biased here, being unabashed lovers of the metallic alloy that is steel, we have our reasons. Like the perfect jigsaw puzzle, steel parts fit together seamlessly, sparing your eye from jagged corners and misalignments. By working alongside our designers, you can also see that your storage unit looks just how you dreamt it would—on the inside and outside.

Channeling Your Inner Architect With Steel

Of all the metals that we can meld, fold, and forge with, steel is the most magical one that we have at our disposal. Steel’s durability and versatility have made it famous. Wherever we go, we see steel incorporated in structures. Steel’s greatness allowed the skyscrapers that now line our cityscapes to be built. As the sharpest minds turn their eyes upon it, glistening, they see innovative ways to bend and mold it. At SouthEastern Erectors, we know that steel is the ideal building material.

With each year that passes, steel becomes all the more ubiquitous, framing and supporting creative structures. Citizens throughout the world behold these steel beauties in their cities and towns. Buildings once constructed out of wood now gleam with the strength and shine of steel. Designers, builders, and architects find themselves inspired to innovate in new and myriad ways. At its most practical, steel allows for buildings that will endure the passage of the ages.

The Steel Agriculturist

Anyone who works under the sun, specializing in agriculture, relies on their own almanac of science and technology. Aware of how unforgiving nature can be, they’ve since learned the limits of working with wooden sheds and barns. Throughout the centuries, our farmers and ranchers have been struck by calamities, exposing their livestock and harvested crops to the elements. It wasn’t until the steel farm that farmers had a means of weathering the cycle of the seasons.

The Steel Equestrian

Conjure up your thoughts of marbled Greece and Rome—race tracks, hippodromes, and the circus maximus! All well and regal—but today’s riders can’t afford to keep their prized horses behind wooden walls. Riding arenas, as well as stables, endure the summers and winters more comfortably with steel. When you’re designing a covered arena, you require as much riding space as possible. Structurally stable without the beams and trusses, steel interiors are roomier, too.

The Steel Gardener

As our cities, towns, and centers swell in size, we can’t forget about the planet that we’ve inherited. At SouthEastern Erectors, our love is steel is fueled by how green friendly it is. We celebrate all the steel greenhouses springing up across our country. Steel is also the best option for sustainable, affordable, and adaptable housing. With each steel creation that we ship, we are inspired to build even more.

The Sustainability of Steel: Why the Planet Loves It

At SouthEastern Erectors, we don’t try to disguise our love for steel. Of all the building materials available in construction, steel metal is perhaps one of the most beautiful, resilient, and flexible. We’re not the only ones raving about it these days, either. If you ask Mother Nature, steel has been a godsend for builders, and the environment too. Today, steel reigns as the most eco-friendly of building materials, easily being one of the most versatile and recyclable of metals.

Progressive Practices

Since the 1990’s, the steel industry has re-transformed itself and its practices, curbing its waste and neglect of the planet. New technologies, like electric arc furnaces, and off-site fabrications, have drastically decreased the amount of wasted material. The steelmaking process of the 21st century is defined by recycling steel and electricity, instead of burning up natural resources like iron ore, gas, and coal. Chugging on black fumes of coal, old-fashioned blast furnaces required almost fifty times as much energy to operate.

The Perfection of Steel

Because of its intrinsic nature, its malleability, and affordability, steel’s risen in popularity across the world in all areas of construction. One reason for its popularity is its strength as a material. Compared to wood and other building materials, steel can handle more strain and weight than any other, pound for pound. While being worked on, assembled, and shipped, steel does not bend, twist, or warp in any way. Being a metal, it also can’t be burned, or sustain damage in a fire. Just the same, it’s resistant to damage from moisture and water. In a sense, it’s quite like a magical mithril.

Green and Recyclable

In the last century alone, 22 billion tons of steel were recycled across the globe. As the most recycled material used on the planet (bar none), recycled steel now breaks 65 million tons per annum. What’s more—when it’s recycled, steel undergoes no degrading in its strength or quality. Water used in the steelmaking process is regularly recycled as well, sometimes cleaner than it started. Indeed, 98% of the ingredients that go into steel are themselves able to be reutilized. It is for all these reasons, and more that our designers, manufacturers, and metal builders love to work with steel.
