3 Amazing Stainless Steel Construction Applications

2. Fixtures

Kitchen counters and walls often are clad in stainless steel to make surfaces easier to clean and disinfect. Depending on the aesthetics of the building, moldings and other decorative accents may be outfitted with stainless steel, which can be polished to a high shine.

3. Roofing

Stainless steel walls and doorknobs are one thing, but what about roofing? Commercial and residential builders find stainless steel gives their buildings a level of durability other materials can't match, decreasing the amount of maintenance required.
