Buyers Guide to Metal Buildings in New Hampshire
Located in the New England region of the United States is New Hampshire. This state consists of mountains, forests, rolling hills, lowlands, and beaches. Summers are mildly warm and humid, while winters are cold and snowy. The northern part of the state sees cooler temperatures throughout the year, as well as increased amounts of precipitation. New Hampshire is prone to thunderstorms and hurricanes in the summer, and snowstorms and blizzards, with the more severe ones called Nor’easters, in the winter.
When building a steel building in New Hampshire, you will need to take a few things into consideration. Due to the high humidity and amounts of precipitation, you will want to take all rust preventative measures possible. With the threat of thunderstorms, hurricanes, and blizzards, making sure you have the correct wind load is essential. You will also need the correct snow load and insulation to deal with the brutal winters. It is suggested that you add gutters and downspouts to your building to allow a designated place for melting snow and rainfall to drain.
At Great Western Buildings, we provide completely customizable buildings to all of our customers. This allows our customers to design exactly what they want, while using the best materials in the industry. As a standard, we use G90 galvanized steel on all buildings. This steel has a thick zinc coating that helps reduce rust, which is very important in humid locations such as New Hampshire. We do require that all local building codes are followed for your location, however those are minimum requirements and you are always welcome to go above those if wanted. The building codes in your location will include wind load, snow load, and insulation, which will all be essential in dealing with the different types of weather your building may encounter. We also recommend adding on gutters and downspouts. This will allow all precipitation to be drained properly off your building to a designated area, lengthening the lifespan of your building and foundation. We provide a 40-year paint warranty on all wall panels and colored roof systems, to ensure that your building will remain looking brand new, even after years of weathering. Dealing with the New Hampshire climate is no challenge for a Great Western building!
