Building Your Garage with Steel

By Armstrong Steel Subscribe to RSS | December 8th 2011 | Views:

If you are serious about reducing your carbon footprint and going green, think steel. Today, it is scientifically proven that global warming is real and its threats can no longer be ignored. You need to do your part in going green, and as a responsible world citizen, it is your duty that you reduce your emissions. People have no clue as to how much their carbon footprints are, because they seldom are aware of how much destruction their activities can cause. Simply turning off your lights when not needed do not amount of environmental responsibility. One of the largest sources of carbon footprints for people is the homes that they build. Your home is built on a graveyard of forests and trees and requires so much processing and destruction of natural resources that it could be the single largest source of environmental destruction that an average person causes.

There is also the issue of sustainability at hand. Sustainability refers to the ability of the future generations to enjoy the benefits that the present generation enjoys. This has become the mantra of corporations and socially responsible citizens, and very rightly so. Many natural resources are not going to last forever, and thus it is only sensible that we use them wisely.

This is where the idea of steel buildings comes into the picture. Steel is renewable and causes a very minimal environmental damage. Unlike traditional buildings, steel buildings do not need forests to be cut down for wood, because you don’t need wood for construction. In addition, water, another very precious natural resource is wasted in plenty for traditional buildings but almost no water is required for prefabricated steel buildings. Half the world goes without safe drinking water available to them, and here we are wasting water for our buildings; how ironic!

Steel buildings are the greenest option available in buildings today. Steel is also renewable, which simply adds icing to the cake. However, in case you are wondering about the quality of steel buildings, then be rest assured that steel is one of the finest steel building construction materials that can be used in today’s buildings. No other material can be as strong as steel in construction, which means your steel building keeps everyone inside safe and secure at all times. It protects against hail, snow, storms, hurricanes, cyclones, etc. and can stand tall even amidst the worst of weathers. Steel buildings are earthquake resistant, and this is particularly useful for people living in earthquake prone areas. Also, steel is fireproof, which means it will never burn to the ground even if some untoward incident ever happens outside or inside the building. In addition, due to this fireproof property of steel buildings, you end up paying lower insurance premiums too, which is another cost saving.

Steel is the ideal construction material owing to the properties it possess that are highly desirable for construction. The fact that it is very green construction should make the eco-conscious people aware of this option and to consider this very seriously if they want to make a difference.
