If building your own home has been a dream of yours, and you’re considering a kit home, then building with steel has many advantages over wood and could be the solution for your needs.
Steel frame home kits have several advantages over wood-frame homes. Steel frame homes are stronger than wood-frame homes and are less susceptible to damage from high winds and rain. Another benefit of building a home with steel is that steel doesn’t warp, bend, or expand as wood does, which makes it a much more reliable building material.
While the cost of building your home with a steel frame can be more expensive than a wood frame in the short term, the long term saving can more than makeup for the initial costs. A steel frame home is less likely to succumb to fire, termite damage, or attract mold or fungus, which can lower your insurance and pest control costs.
