Wood vs. Steel
WARRANTY & MAINTENANCE
How much money do you think you spend maintaining your home.
Structural steel is so durable, it does not shrink, split, wont't absorb moisture and resists warping. Maintenance fees and repairs are so minimal even over the course of 50 to 70 years. Saving the you thousands of dollars.
Since cold formed steel is a non-combustible material, this reduces the risk of property loss during the construction of the project and over the life of the structure.
Reduced risk of property loss leads to lower homeowner insurance.

Termites cause more damage than fire, floods and storms combined.
