Q. Do steel framed houses look different?
A. How a home looks over time depends a lot on the stability and durability of the materials from which it is made. The typical steel-framed home or low-rise building keeps its shape indefinitely. Walls and ceilings made with steel framing tend not to have ripples or bumps in them, there are no "nail pops" in plasterboard walls, no shrinkage in intermediate floor joists and no sagging roofs.
Q. Why do people decide to build with steel?
A. Steel is a superior product for long term investment, with added advantages. Steel is light and strong, does not burn, is termite and borer proof and is dimensionally stable - it will not shrink or warp. Steel framing durability will ensure the structural integrity and high standard of finish of the building long into the future. Using steel is environmentally responsible.
