When calculating how much it will cost to design and construct a building, savvy business owners know that it’s crucial to figure out the total cost of ownership. It’s not just a matter of comparing building options based on the initial upfront costs of materials, development, and labor.
The same goes for homeowners who are looking to expand their space by adding a building such as a workshop, garage, or even a strong and durable steel barndominium to the property.
Your budget also accounts for ongoing cleaning, maintenance, and repairs over the course of owning and using the building. This is why so many business owners are expanding their options to include steel buildings.
Are you looking for extra space for your home or business? Our buildings are low maintenance and last a lifetime.

Reduced Maintenance Costs
Steel’s strength and durability make it an ideal construction material. It holds up against the elements, from harsh ultraviolet light from the sun to wind, rain, and snow. You don’t have to worry about termite damage or needing to tent the building for pest control treatment.
What’s more, paint lasts longer on the surfaces of steel buildings, compared to wood. And unlike wooden structures, steel buildings do not rot over time.
Steel buildings don’t promote the growth of mildew or mold, which is a major problem with wooden buildings. And from a safety perspective, steel buildings are fire resistant. That’s a major motivation for concerned business owners seeking to protect their assets with a cost-effective solution.

Reducing the Total Cost of Ownership With a Steel Building That’s Easy to Maintain
One of the benefits of steel buildings that people sometimes overlook is just how easy they are to maintain.
In a business setting, keeping your structure in tip-top condition is high on the list of priorities for your facilities manager.
For residential use, many homeowners want to install steel buildings in their backyard to store equipment and supplies for the pool and garden. Or, they need a building to protect a recreational vehicle, boat, or motorcycle.
Since it’s easier to clean and maintain a steel structure at a company or residence, you reduce the total cost of ownership when compared to buildings constructed from wood.
