With their simplicity of concept, design flexibility, efficient construction, and long-term performance, it is easy to see why metal panels are the superior choice for today’s buildings. In fact, metal panels have even proven themselves to reduce construction costs. Why are these metal panels so much more cost effective than other building materials? Let’s find out!
Quicker To Assemble
A building constructed using metal panels can be erected far quicker than buildings using timber or concrete. The panels arrive pre-manufactured and pre-engineered for construction. Meaning they are both easy to place and precise in measurement already. There will be no unexpected surprises or adjustments needed to be made. You can expect construction time of a building utilizing metal panels to be reduced, both by time and by dollars, by about 20% to 40%.
Metal Panels Are Cost-Effective
Metal panels are all around more cost effective than other building materials, hands down. Since they are pre-fabricated, there is very little waste leftover. Compared to the many pieces of wood or gallons of concrete leftover on some job sites. Since the panels are so lightweight, less labor is needed to erect the structure. Compare this to the many men and pieces of machinery required to assemble other buildings. Metal panels provide the opportunity to save money at every stage of the construction process.
Metal Panels Are Strong
Metal panels are strong and durable; able to withstand strong winds, repel water, and contain fire. Traditional buildings made from wood or brick, however, encounter many repair needs throughout their lifetime. Especially when faced with mold, rotting, warping, pests, and extreme weather. Metal panels also deteriorate far less quickly than brick or wood. Your metal panel structure will save countless dollars over the long term without the need for sealing, caulking, re-roofing, painting… The list goes on.
Higher Energy Efficiency
Metal buildings have been designed with keeping energy efficiency in mind. Features such as cool metal roofs help in preventing the rise of heat. Reducing the heat island effect produced by concrete and other traditional roofing material. Improving indoor air quality, increasing efficiency, and reducing the need for electricity when paired properly with windows and skylights. All of these steps lead to substantial energy conservation and cost savings in the long term.
Metal panels are the building material to choose if you want a long-standing foundation that will cost you fewer resources and money over time. Are you interested in learning more about your metal panel options? Contact our qualified team of professionals at 519-451-7663 or email@example.com.
