Steel vs Timber Frame


Steel vs Timber Frame

Our steel framed buildings are considered “light weight” buildings.  Often this means our foundations can be less complex (and therefore less expensive) than other building types.  

Why is steel better than wood?

•    stronger 
•    more resilient
•    straighter and truer
•    doesn’t warp with age
•    not considered combustible
•    not eaten by insects
•    clear span to the rafters – no trusses 
•    wider clear spans
•    Less affected by water
