HOW DURABLE IS STEEL?
HOW LONG DO STEEL BUILDINGS LAST
Steel buildings face fewer issues with deterioration and corrosion than concrete and wood, and can outlive other structures when properly built and maintained. Most steel buildings last anywhere from 50 to 100 years. Steel is long lasting and combined with eco-friendly building materials is often used for green building projects.
WHY IS STEEL A GOOD BUILDING MATERIAL
Steel is a good building material because it is known for its ability to withstand common causes of deterioration. Steel also comes with added bonus of low maintenance needs. The lifespan of your steel building can be prolonged if you wash it regularly and address small damage in a timely manner.
Barrier coating such as zinc-aluminium-magnesium alloy used on our BlueScope steel framing helps isolate it from water, sun and oxygen so it withstands corrosion.
Steel does not warp, split, crack or corrode when appropriately produced and maintained. These are common problems for wood structures.
The moral of steel’s story: Build it and don’t worry about it
