Florida is the most southeastern state in the United States and also has the most hurricanes on record. Since 1851, Florida has been hit by over 120 hurricanes. With over 1,300 miles of coastline, this state is very susceptible to hurricanes and tropical storms, which brings the severe risk of flooding and damaging winds.
This may seem like an issue when wanting to put up a steel building. However, with the correct wind load and waterproofing, a steel building is a great choice to withstand the Florida weather and storms.
At Great Western Buildings, we customize all buildings to customer’s needs, while following all local building codes. A building in Florida would be designed with a higher wind load, specific to your county. We are also certified in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, to protect your building from the strongest coastal storms. We use double sided mastic tape between the wall panels to ensure that your building will be waterproof. We provide these options to make your building as sturdy and weather-proof as needed.
