North America weather offers many challenges for building designs. Unpredictable weather patterns, including everything from blizzards to torrential rain, and extreme cold temperatures that swing back and forth across the freezing mark make building material decisions crucial. Steel is the best choice when considering changing weather patterns, offering a much higher strength to weight ratio than wood and none of the absorbency, which can lead to structurally compromising rot.
Other natural factors like rodents and pests finding shelter are also considerations when choosing the structure of your new building. Steel is extremely hard for animals to breech, since they use their claws and teeth to make points of entry, much more difficult than wood. Though rodents may not cause issues with the contents of your building, water, ice, and snow can breach your structure through the holes that the rodents make. Steel buildings by Pioneer Steel are a great choice, made with AZ180 GalvalumePlus™ metal, they stand up to anything nature can throw at them.
Our buildings are made with the most advanced metal alloy that is warrantied 40 years against corrosion, so you can rest easy knowing that the contents of your building will be protected from the elements for decades. Pioneer Steel buildings also offer superior leak resistance, and with options for opposite-and staggered-panel crimp designs and optional caulking strips, your building will be virtually waterproof. We also offer thicker gauge steel panels for climates with high wind or heavy snow, for the most durable building on the market.
Traditional, store-bought metal sheds are made with thin aluminum to cut shipping costs as they are normally manufactured, at least in part, overseas. We locally source our metal, allowing us to save on shipping and pass that savings on to you. With our endless design options, your imagination truly is the limit when it comes to creating your steel building.
