Buyers guide to Metal Buildings in Alabama
From the foothills of the Appalachians, the countless rivers and beaches, and the caves caverns and mountaintops, Alabama has a temperate climate. An average annual temperature of about 64 °F is mellowed out by altitude in the northern counties, although summer heat is often alleviated somewhat by the winds blowing in from the Gulf of Mexico. Summers here are hot and humid, with the heat comes thunderstorms and tornadoes.
You will need to take precautions to improve the longevity of your building. You will want to take all the rust preventative measures possible as well as following location specific local guidelines. Adding gutters and downspouts to your building is also a great idea. With the summer heat, you will want adequate insulation to ensure that your building stays cooler and more efficient.
At Great Western Buildings, all buildings are designed using G90 galvanized steel. This means that there is ⅔ more zinc coating than the standard, G30, and will do a great job at protecting against rust in the humid climate. We also provide the option of adding gutters and downspouts to your building. While not always necessary, it is recommended that those are added onto buildings located in this area of the country.

Insulation will not only provide a barrier to heat and cold, but it will also prevent condensation, which will help improve the overall lifespan of your building.
