Once you have decided on the location and size of your dream deck, it is time to consider the bones of the design. All things considered, the framing material is going to determine the life of the deck, which essentially makes it the most important part of the project.
Kansas City deck construction should never be taken lightly!
The deck building industry has been dominated by timber framing ever since the first deck was built. However, steel is transforming the way outdoor living is being constructed and enjoyed.
When people think of steel, they picture things such as railroad tracks, skyscrapers, and other formidable architectural creations. Once you understand the benefits of steel framing, you will be able to appreciate your new deck for its impressive quality – and feel proud showing it off.
There’s a good reason why Superman wasn’t called the ‘Man of Timber’! Steel has a higher density than timber. Even though it’s heavier than wood, less steel is needed to provide the same amount of support. (Example: A length of steel that’s 50mm x 100mm can carry more load than the same length of 50mm x 100mm timber.)
Virtually indestructible. Unlike timber, steel doesn’t split, crack, or creep as it ages and doesn’t warp, rot, or expand when exposed to moisture and humidity. Plus, it’s not vulnerable to mold, mildew, and termites.
A force to be reckoned with. The tensile strength of steel framing allows it to withstand Mother Nature’s fury, which can include high winds, seismic activity, and snow loads. As an added incentive, it’s no match for fire because it’s non-combustible.
Faster construction times are no fabrication! Because steel frames are prefabricated off-site according to precise design specifications, they can be sent directly to the construction site ready for immediate assembly. This means that you can start enjoying your deck sooner!
Low maintenance costs. Due to steel’s high durability, incidents requiring repair and replacement to the deck framing are few and far between. Some insurance companies may even offer cheaper premiums on structures made of steel because of their ability to withstand decay, pests, natural disasters, and fire resistance.
Brace yourself for the best deck ever!
You just can’t beat the quality, value, and lifespan of a steel framed deck.
