Mid-Atlantic Metal Buildings

The Mid-Atlantic is a staple of Americana. It’s home to the nation’s capital and historic locations that served as the foundation of the United States we know today. American history and culture are abundant throughout the region, from the glorious smokey mountains in North Carolina to the streets of Baltimore and New York City. It’s no wonder it’s such an attractive place to live. That’s not to say taking up residency there doesn’t come with its own set of challenges.

Though George Washington and his men crossing the Delaware on a frigid Christmas day in 1776 are firmly in the past, the harsh winters of the Mid-Atlantic remain. Substantial snowfall and icy conditions in winter can take a toll on both citizens and buildings throughout the Mid-Atlantic. On top of that, fall brings ferocious Gulf Stream winds, and come Spring and summer, there’s always an impending possibility of a hurricane. The Mid-Atlantic states of New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, and West Virginia (as well as Washington D.C.) demand a safe and dependable building that can withstand the elements and the test of time. That’s why a metal building is the perfect solution for the Mid-Atlantic.

Why Choose a Metal Building in the Mid-Atlantic?

When it comes to building materials, steel is a robust and dependable material that typically has no cost penalty compared to traditional wooden construction. In some cases, a metal building kit is more affordable than a similar wooden building. That said, steel is inherently much stronger than wood. As a result, a metal building is advantageous in overall strength and far more resistant to the effects of weather and climate than a wooden building.

Understandably, one might hesitate to spring for a metal building in a climate with copious humidity, snow, and hefty storms for fear of rust and corrosion—however, modern coating solutions like G90 Galvanization. G90 Galvanized steel uses a thick Zinc coating that stands between your building material and the elements to prevent rust and corrosion. In addition, modern insulation solutions avoid the accumulation of moisture within the building’s structure to prevent corrosion further.

A well-engineered metal building kit is typically quick to erect, which equates to less time spent on the job site. In addition, prefabricated buildings ensure limited waste on the job site. Ultimately, a metal building kit allows you to focus solely on the construction project without worrying about whether or not you’ve got the appropriate amount of materials on hand and can keep a project on even the strictest of timelines. 

Ultimately, a metal building is the perfect Mid-Atlantic solution. It’s simple, quick to erect, and robust enough to withstand a wide array of elemental impacts for decades.
