  What Makes Pioneer Steel Buildings Waterproof?

The entire reason for shelters and storage is to protect what is inside the structure from the elements. Whether you are storing your RV or your workshop tools, a metal building from Pioneer Steel Buildings has got you covered!

Galvalume PLUS™ Panels

Exploded view of Galvalume PlusGalvalume PLUS™ is a protected alloy that is factory warrantied for 40 years against corrosion. One of the biggest contributors to metal building failure is corrosion, metal panels can rust through, leaving holes around fastening bolts, corners and anywhere else water accumulates. Galvalume PLUS™ eliminates that worry, helping Pioneer Steel Buildings to be some of the most waterproof structures on the market. Your steel building and its contents will be safe for decades, and worry free!

The panels themselves overlap by 9 inches and the arches by 3 inches, giving plenty of protection to the seams, where corrosion starts. Still not convinced? Keep reading.
