Sales: 10 Mistakes that Most People Make

Metal Buildings and Their Advantages

The metal building industry has evolved so much and is now a leader in providing on-budget, on-time and innovative projects for its clients. For owners or developers who are unsure about metal buildings, there are lots of benefits they will find that have a positive impact on form as well as function, ultimately boosting their bottom line.

Speed of Project Completion

A proactively managed custom metal building project can be completed much faster. When the design professionals, contractor and manufacturer collaborate effectively, the construction schedule can even be much shorter. In addition, metal buildings can be erected in even the least ideal weather conditions. Ready-made finishes make a one-step installation process that eliminates repetitive pass applications needed for conventionally applied finishes such as brick veneers or EIFS. In regular construction, the weather has a large role to play in project duration because installers need to wait for best conditions before they can go on with the succeeding steps of the construction process.

Energy Efficiency

Knowing that energy codes are ever evolving, even becoming stricter every time, energy efficiency must be a priority with every product improvement. Insulated wall and roof panels are vital to the construction of metal buildings, with maximum R-values of R-42. Such insulation values don’t just meet energy efficiency code requirements today, but are also opportunities for a lifetime of energy savings for building owners, thanks to reduced external HVAC equipment loads.

For applications in which IMPs are not be the best option, a lot of manufacturers have standing seam roof systems with high R values. These systems work with clips with which single-skin standing seam roof panels are able to hold up to 12-inch blanket insulation (R-30) over the supporting roof members with controlled compression.

Another new addition to the industry are firerated panels, which are a lot like foam IMPs, but at their core is mineral wool. They can be used for exteriors or interiors as desired by the owner or required by codes.

Aesthetic Appeal

The metal building industry has experienced a huge transformation over the decades and now provides an entire array of options of colors, finishes and embossing; this allows owners to decide on the look and feel of their building. There are also other options, like factory-formed corners and others that boost the building’s aesthetic appeal. With the range of options offered to construction pros, there is a lot of freedom in terms of creativity, all while ensuring the simplicity and efficiency of the process by maintaining just one supplier.

Indeed, the metal building industry has never thrived more in its history than today. With all the options and freedom available, contractors are able to develop solutions that will meet energy and aesthetic requirements while keeping costs lower and project timelines shorter compared to traditional construction.
