Southern California Metal Home Builders

A home is one of the biggest—if not the biggest—investment that many people make, so it makes good sense to be sure the construction job is done right the first time. Part of that includes the right decision on materials to use. 

Steel—as opposed to traditional wood—is growing in popularity. Our Southern California metal home builders can advise clients on whether this option is right for them, and then deliver a construction job designed to last for decades.

What Is the Maintenance on a Metal Building?

The maintenance requirements for a metal building can vary depending on factors such as the type of metal used, the environmental conditions, and the building's usage. Generally, metal buildings are known for their durability and low maintenance compared to traditional construction materials like wood or concrete. However, some routine maintenance tasks can help ensure the longevity and performance of a metal building:

  • Regular Inspections: Conduct routine inspections to check for any signs of damage, such as corrosion, rust, or loose fasteners. Inspecting the roof, walls, and foundation periodically can help catch any issues early.
  • Cleaning: Clean the exterior of the building regularly to remove dirt, debris, and pollutants that can accumulate and cause corrosion. Pressure washing or simple scrubbing with a mild detergent solution can help keep the metal surfaces clean.
  • Repainting: Over time, the paint on metal buildings may fade or peel due to exposure to the elements. Repainting the exterior surfaces can help protect the metal from corrosion and improve its appearance. It's essential to choose high-quality paint suitable for metal surfaces and follow proper preparation and application techniques.
  • Gutter Maintenance: If the metal building has gutters and downspouts, make sure they are free from debris and properly attached to the structure. Clogged gutters can cause water to accumulate and potentially damage the roof or walls.
  • Sealant Inspection: Check the sealant around doors, windows, and other openings to ensure it remains intact and effective at preventing water infiltration. Replace any damaged or deteriorated sealant promptly to maintain the building's weather resistance.
  • Pest Control: Inspect the building for signs of pest infestation, such as insect nests or rodent activity. Implement measures to deter pests and seal any openings that could provide access to the interior.
  • HVAC Maintenance: If the metal building is equipped with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for maintenance and servicing to ensure optimal performance and energy efficiency.

By staying proactive with these maintenance tasks, you can help extend the lifespan of your metal building and minimize the need for costly repairs down the road.

There are a lot of good reasons that more and more homeowners are choosing to build with metal rather than wood. Those reasons include the following: 

  • Cost-Effective Building with Metal Metal is typically easier and quicker to work with than wood, which means that installation and construction times can be shorter. What’s more, metal is lightweight and easy to move, which can save time and costs associated with transportation and handling.
  • Durable Metal Homes in Earthquake-Prone Areas Another advantage of using metal in home construction is that it provides better strength and durability. Unlike wood, metal does not warp or rot over time, making it less susceptible to damage from moisture, pests, and other environmental factors. Metal is also more resistant to wind, and seismic activity. In an area like San Diego County, buildings that can provide more protection against earthquakes have a heightened importance. 
  • Enhanced Fire Safety with Metal Construction Metal is non-combustible, meaning that it does not burn or contribute to the spread of flames during a fire. This can help to prevent fires from starting in the first place and can limit the damage caused by fires if they do occur. Our Southern California metal home builders know how to undertake construction that is both safe and efficient. Contact Steel Innovations by either calling (619) 330-7666 or by filling out our online contact form today. 
  • Energy-Efficient Metal Homes for Sustainable Living Metal homes can be designed with superior insulation, which helps to keep the interior temperature of the home more consistent. The better a job that the home does in keeping the outside elements where they belong—outside—the less strain is put on the HVAC. All of which is better for both the environment and the budget of the homeowner. 
  • Low-Maintenance Living with Metal Structures Unlike wood, metal requires little maintenance beyond occasional cleaning and inspection. Metal does not need to be painted or treated regularly, which can save homeowners time and money. Additionally, metal is less susceptible to damage from insects and decay, which can further reduce the need for repairs and maintenance.
  • Eco-Friendly Metal Homes: The Sustainable Choice Using eco-friendly materials is an increasingly important consideration for many homeowners, and metal provides an excellent option in this regard. Metal is a highly sustainable material that can be recycled indefinitely without loss of quality or performance. Furthermore, using metal in construction can help to reduce waste and lower the environmental impact of the building process.
