Steel buildings can be significantly less costly than traditionally constructed ones to put up on your property. The savings doesn’t stop there. The reason why a growing number of people choose to go with Miracle Truss® buildings is that when you do the math, you discover that you will ultimately save more money in the long run by investing in steel and metal.
It’s because the cost to repair or correct future problems – if they happen at all – will always be much less than it will take to repair and maintain a traditionally constructed building.
Built to Last
No one argues about the durability of a steel structure. It’s been designed and built to last longer than traditional construction. Steel has the ability to resist the destructive forces of weather, and because it’s an inorganic material, steel can’t be undermined by pests like termites.
The pest control company Orkin reports that American residents spend about $5 billion annually to control termites and repair the damage these insects cause. A building owner who discovers termite damage will spend an average of $3,000 to have it repaired.
If you live in an area where termites are a problem, you know how difficult – and costly this problem is to control. Many property owners experience the problem of termite infestations more than once. Take that $3,000 price tag and add it to the cost of a traditionally constructed building, and then compare it to a comparable Miracle Truss® building.
Steel frames don’t deteriorate, and they also are impervious to rot, twisting, warping, or cracking. Today’s framing lumber may be standardized, but it’s an organic substance. Over time, it’s subject to everything that steel resists. Use this resource to estimate the cost of wood framing for your building. How much will it cost if 10 years from now you have to replace your building’s wooden support beams? Meanwhile, Miracle Truss® buildings feature a 50-year structural warranty.
Traditional construction material often has to also be trimmed or shimmed as a building is put up. Miracle Truss® pre-engineered buildings are test assembled before the major components are sent to your property. Your building arrives ready to be erected. It’s one of the reasons why many customers choose to turn the assembly process into a DIY project. Consider the cost savings involved with hiring a construction crew and you see another reason why steel and metal buildings offer long-term savings.
Steel building manufacturers like Miracle Truss® can offer you these savings because they’ve already invested in the cost of designing, engineering, and fabricating the durable and precise elements that create the structure of your building.
You’ll save money up front – but you’ll continue to save money on maintenance and repair over the lifetime of your Miracle Truss® building. Read what some of our customers have to say about working with Miracle Truss®.
