Red-iron steel is one of the most popular building materials in the world. It is also called an I-beam because of the shape the steel takes: it looks like an uppercase “I”. If you are looking to build a structure for commercial or industrial purposes, red-iron steel is worth considering because of its numerous benefits. Here’s a look at some of them:
Affordable Building Material
Be it a carport, barn or shed, it is not uncommon to find red-iron steel as the main framework of such structures. That’s because of how affordable this building material is, especially in terms of material purchase and shipping costs. No matter the budget and the type of structure you want to build, you can rely on red-iron steel beams.
Easy to Work With on Jobs
Whether you are erecting a shed or building a 40×60 steel structure, you’ll be surprised to learn that red-iron steel is easy to work with during your project. The building kits being offered in the market don’t require support posts or columns, allowing you to create an expansive, column-free space within the building. Plus, they are easy to assemble and can be constructed using only basic tools. Of course, larger structures would require expertise given the weight of red-iron steel beams.
It takes less time to construct steel buildings with red-iron steel beams. With this, you can save more on labor costs and shorten the amount of time you’re paying interest on a construction loan. Moreover, nearby homes or businesses won’t be disrupted by all the noise and mess from the worksite.
Durability and Rigidity
Red-iron steel frame structures are known for their longevity and durability. They can withstand virtually everything, including rain, hail and wind. Also, each steel beam is coated with iron oxide to create a barrier that prevents moisture from seeping through the actual steel material. With this protection, you can be sure that your building’s frame remains structurally sound for decades to come.
