When you invest in personal belongings, whether that includes hobby materials, agricultural supplies or automobiles, you need to make sure you are investing in the right way to take care of those belongings. Equipment sheds might sound like something agricultural or commercial enterprise needs, but they are an ideal solution to residential storage concerns.

Metal equipment sheds are an affordable and easy-to-install solution to all storage needs. These buildings can be installed in any shape or size with a wide variety of different amenities that make it simple to customize the storage shed to your particular requirements, whether that includes height, lofts or overhangs.

For Ultimate Customization, Look for Metal Equipment Shed Designs

Storage sheds can often be found pre-made in a one-size-fits-all format, but that isn’t the best solution. The reason for this is that your equipment and property has particular needs that should be taken into consideration when the design is being outlined. This is the benefit of building with steel—it is very versatile. Steel is roll-formed into uniform and precise shapes that will allow whatever design is necessary for a building. This gives metal equipment sheds a heads-up over wood sheds do to the strength of steel, wood sheds are going to be cumbersome and limited in flexibility and building options. This means that steel can easily be manipulated to fit a certain height to house larger equipment, and can be used to fit in any property space.

Steel components don’t bend, warp or twist. The durable materials stand up to the test of time, providing long-term security and safety to your equipment without wearing down from weather and use. And since steel doesn’t shrink or expand like wood does, your steel equipment shed is a lot less prone to leaks than a standard wooden shed would be. This is what makes all the difference when you are comparing equipment shed designs.

You invest a lot in your belongings, whether that includes machinery, agricultural equipment, or personal hobbies. Whatever you are looking to store, you need to make sure that you are putting your belongings in an equipment shed that will protect them completely. Designing your own equipment shed is the only answer here. For more information about customized metal equipment sheds, contact us.

When you look at an old home, the design and architecture might be one of the first things that jump out at you, but sure enough it is always the durability and lifespan of the property that takes the cake as the most impressive factors.

The headlines are in. For most of the country, 2016 started off as one of the harshest winters to go down on record, with record snowfall that meant most of the Northeast was stuck under several feet of snow for days on end. While the year’s opening blizzard only shed snow on a handful of states, the harsh winter weather is not as limited. From coast the coast snow has fallen, and the farther north you go the more severe that snowfall becomes. Even the southern United States received a light layer of snow, accompanied by harsh winds and icy temperatures that don’t usually fall that far south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

What Snow Means for your Building Needs

This high level of snow fall means a lot of different things, including the potential for ice on the road that can mean incredibly dangerous driving conditions. One risk that is particularly stressful to many people throughout the northern states is the build-up of snow on the rooftops, as this can create a heavy pressure that puts your building under undue stress.

If your building isn’t strong enough to stand up to the snow, then you could be facing a roof cave-in or even greater structural damage.

The good news is that steel and metal buildings from Worldwide Steel are built with what it takes to handle the heavy and harsh snow pile-ups required in each area of the country. In fact, it is found that metal and steel buildings may actually be better suited to handling higher snow loads than traditionally framed homes.

When the snow does fall, you want to rest assured that you have the strongest building in the business. This is what Worldwide Steel can offer for you. From small garages to massive work equipment sheds, you can get the confidence you need that you have a solid building that will stand up no matter the weather.

Snow is the heaviest and most dangerous when it is compacted. If you live in a climate where compacted snow could develop, then it is important to take weather precautions under consideration when building your structure. Compacted snow is heavy due to the layers of ice that form in between the layers of snow. Be educated about the weather risks in your area and know what you need your building to stand up against when making your choice of materials. Steel and metal buildings can be used for garages, workshops, and residential and commercial needs, and are easily insulated to make the inside just as comfortable as the outside is sturdy.
