STEEL BARNS AND AGRICULTURAL WAREHOUSES

In West Texas, barns and warehouses are commonplace fixtures of our landscape. Regardless if they are housing equipment, livestock, machinery or used for additional storage, barns are a necessary part of working in mechanical fields and country living in general. While many might traditionally associate barns with wooden construction, steel has quickly become a favored building material for barns.

BENEFITS OF STEEL BUILDINGS

01. LONGER LASTING

Steel Barns and warehouses have several advantages over traditional wooden construction. Wood and conventional construction materials break down much more quickly than metal and specifically steel. The longevity of steel means that choosing a steel barn means fewer repairs as there is less general wear and tear.

02. SUSTAINABILITY

General sustainability is another reason that makes steel the best possible building material. If you plan on having your barn heated, or outfitted electrically, steel is your best option. Not only do steel buildings provide better insulation than traditional building materials, but they can also be recycled. Steel has a set purpose, and once it serves that purpose, reformatting it for new projects is a relatively simple and economical process.

03. CUSTOMIZATION

Steel allows for more customization. Steel barns can be outfitted with slide slats to provide ventilation for livestock enclosures. Recent advancements in steel construction also have allowed for more creative designs to be implemented during construction. Steel no longer only offers sharp corners and plain designs.The possibilities in design are ample and many times only limited by your imagination.

04. PROTECTION FROM INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ELEMENTS

While many buildings throughout the world are built specifically to keep the elements out, steel barns also provide an opportunity to protect against internal factors such as moisture from condensation and corrosive vapors which come from housing livestock and machinery.

Steel can be coated or painted in ways to protect against both external and internal elements, making sure your barn lasts for years, if not decades to come, protecting whatever you chose to store.
