FAST

All of the steel components are fabricated in our warehouse, so we can build your home faster than a traditional wood-frame home.

Strong

Steel structures are more durable than wood and it will help you to build construction which will persists life-long.

Non-combustible

Steel is incapable of igniting and burning when subjected to fire. So you can feel safe by choosing steel as the material for your home.

Fixed Price

It is possible to provide an accurate estimation for the entire project before beginning. No more guessing for the prices!

No Bugs, Rust or Mold

Our steel is galvanized and will not rust or grow mold. In addition, there are no bugs or termites that eat steel.

Easy to Install

All of our steel studs have multiple openings and floor joists are latticed, making wiring and piping much easier than in wood homes.

Accurate

Steel walls are perfectly straight which means you will never have any warping or shrinkage issues. No drywall screws popping out anymore!

Fixed Ceilings heights

Build any ceiling height for the same cost. Steel construction can provide fixed ceiling heights. No need to worry about the escalation of prices.

Clean Jobsite

Almost zero waste at the jobsite. No cleanup crew is required during framing, reducing the cost and time associated with cleanup.

Recycleable

We mostly use recyclable steel. At the end of a home’s life cycle, all of the steel can be recycled. No more tons of waste for construction.

Hassle-free

If you use steel in construction, you don’t need to worry about the perfection in design and measurement.

Longevity

A steel frameed house will last more than twice that of a wood, making it a better long-term investment with less repairing costs.

Competitive Pricing

A home framed out of steel is cheaper to build than one out of wood. It reduces the overall cost of construction in different aspects.

Better Investment

New homeowners are willing to pay more for a home built from steel, giving you a better return on your investment.

Downside of Timber

MOLD & ROT

Wood cannot provide a fixed structure and it will mould and rot with time.

COMBUSTABLE

Wood is combustible and will spread fire throughout the structure.

NON-RECYCLABLE

It is a difficult and complex process to recycle wood.

DEFOESTATION

Collecting wood from the forest will contribute to deforestation.

HARMFUL TO ECOLOGY

Susceptible to terminates pests and rodents.

SLOW PROCESS

Swells, twists, bows and shrinks create delays, inefficiencies.

LOW RESISTANCE

Wood is low in seismic and wind resistance.

GENERATES WASTE

Wood generates significant building waste and creates a messy construction site.

Downside of Concrete

EXPENSIVE

The material costs are higher for concrete buildings.

FABRICATION ISSUE

Must be fabricated into structural panels at the building site.

HEAVY FOUNDATION

Concrete requires a heavy and expensive foundation to support the structure.

SHORING SYSTEM

The concrete structure requires a shoring system between the floors.

VARIABLE CONSISTENCY

Concrete structures can have varying consistencies which are not as actively regulated.

CURING TIMES

Curing time for concrete structures can be greatly affected by weather conditions.

INSTALLATION COSTS

Installation cost is higher for concrete structures.

MORE MANPOWER

Concrete construction needs more manpower than steel construction.
