3 Reasons to Use Steel, Wood, Missouri

If you’ve ever done any home improvements or you’re planning on doing a few renovations, you may have found yourself wondering what type of material you should go with. Questions of longevity and price may come into play, or maybe you’re more concerned about the aesthetics. Whatever structure you plan on building or renovation you plan on doing, the steel fabricators at Douglass Steel in Mountain Grove, MO, want you to consider the many benefits of going with steel.

3 Reasons to Use Steel

1. Durable

Chances are, you don’t want to go with a material that is flimsy or won’t last very long. While wood may rot and metal may rust, steel is an extremely strong material that can withstand all types of elements. You’ll be able to rest assured that steel will still be standing after a harsh Missouri winter and during an unpredictable windstorm.

2. Environmentally Friendly

If you’re concerned steelabout your carbon footprint, consider building with steel. Steel is not only a highly recyclable material, but it also comes mostly from naturally occurring elements like iron. Even the way steel is manufactured is eco-friendly, as most steel manufacturers emit far less carbon dioxide than other industries.

3. Low Maintenance

Once you’ve installed your steel rods or sheets, you won’t have to worry about maintaining them for years to come. Unlike wood, which needs coats of paint or stain now and then, a structure made of steel won’t corrode or rust. You might pay a little more for steel up front, but the investment is bound to pay itself off when you don’t have to pay for years of routine maintenance and repairs.
