You are making the right decision when you choose a steel frame home from Straight Edge Steel. Steel is strong and durable and does not rot, warp, twist or split. Perhaps best of all, termites can’t devour it!
The benefits of building a steel frame home from Straight Edge Steel include:
- Price – because steel is lightweight and strong, less material is required, making it a cost-efficient building material. Transport costs and construction times are also cut.
- Timeframe – lightweight materials such as steel are much easier to work with than traditional building materials, meaning your new steel frame home from Straight Edge Steel can be constructed in around half the time of a bricks-and-mortar home.
- Design – steel frames and trusses are easily modifiable and open up endless design options to the owner-builder.
- Environmentally Friendly – fewer materials are needed compared to traditional homes, which equals less waste. Steel is also recyclable after demolition and is a great alternative to timber.
- Durability – steel frame homes do not require treatment with pesticides, preservatives or glues. Steel frame homes are also non-combustible – a great attribute to have in Western Australia’s fire-prone climate.
