Due to the large number of benefits, steel framing is becoming increasingly popular in home design. Steel framing offers strength, versatility, durability and economic value to a large variety of structures. Above all, steel framing allows you greater design flexibility when building a dream home that will last for generations to come.

Design Aesthetics

Bold choices that inspire and create a lasting impression are made possible through steel framing. Due to its flexibility, you can choose to design with flowing curves or precision flatness. Steel can be easily cut into different custom lengths and widths allowing you varied choices. Your desired look can be easily achieved as steel can accommodate a variety of external finishes such as brickwork, timber, weatherboard, tiles, render etc. to create contemporary and stylish looks. The ability to account for different materials at the design stage also means that services such as ducting, cabling and plumbing are made easier, saving you time and effort. The inherit properties of steel allow designers to include longer spans that create larger open plan spaces. This freedom of design provides you the opportunity to build within a wide range of styles and create an image that will endure the test of time.

Minimal Time & Cost Restraints

Using steel framing will help save you time and money in the long-run, but also during the building process itself. There is usually little to no wastage on site, and what is left can be sold afterwards to be recycled in other steel-based products. Since steel buildings are quick and easy to erect, you have more time to spend on other important aspects of the design process.

Future Requirements

As your requirements change over the years, you can reuse, relocate or expand your structure easily with steel framing. Not only does this save on future costs, it also reduces the impact on the environment. Designers can use this flexibility for new projects, while using the old materials or even relocate with substantially lower costs. With minimal maintenance requirements, your costs will stay low throughout the years allowing you to enjoy your new home.
