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.

What is it that makes a house a home? Some would say that home is where the heart is; others claim that home is where your family resides. Home means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but at its heart the home is a place of security and comfort, a place where you can rest your head and rest assured that you and your loved ones are safe from harm’s way.
What makes a house into a home, then? Security, strength and durability. These are the attributes that a steel building can provide, and often at much reduced cost to traditional home construction methods.
Why to Choose Residential Steel Buildings
The act of building homes out of steel trusses and metal building kits is on the rise, and for good reason. The current economy makes purchasing a home difficult for many people. For those who already own property, steel building kits are the most affordable, fastest, and overall easiest way to erect a structure on any piece of land.
Why are steel buildings the easiest way to go?
- Metal building kits are comprehensive, meaning that everything you need to erect a building is included in the kit.
- These building kits are affordable, with financing options available as needed.
- Steel buildings have one of the highest ratings for durability and stability
- Metal buildings are easily customized to your individual property needs
Based on these benefits, as well as just the general ease of the construction process, steel building construction has gained a great deal of popularity in recent years. This steel-style construction has been a favorite of the agricultural and manufacturing industries for some time, as the steel buildings are a great option for barns, warehouses, distribution facilities and corporate headquarters. The same features that have drawn businesses to these structures is reassuring many homeowners that steel construction buildings are the right choice for their personal residential needs.

For a long time, churches took on a rather unique appearance—an appearance very heavily tied to the construction materials that were common at the time. From the grand cathedrals laid from thousands of bricks to the classic small wooden church with the tall white steeple, for many people, when you think of a religious building, you think of these outward appearances.
But the way of the world is changing, and with the large increases in population comes a need for something a bit more practical than stained glass windows in a cramped building with rows of pews. This is why so many religious organizations are going more for practicality when building their place of worship, and are moving away from the classic look of traditional churches.
Here are a few reasons why steel buildings makes sense for religious organizations:
- Steel buildings are inexpensive, especially in comparison to traditional wood and brick churches
- Steel buildings are versatile, they can be built on any property
- Using steel allows you to create a larger building, which is ideal for large congregations
- Steel buildings typically offer an extreme amount of space, which is great for church functions
There are a number of ways in which steel buildings can support a growing congregation. Many religious organizations don’t have a lot of funding to build a new church, and when that funding does come available, there is often a lot of hesitation about putting it towards a new building. Steel buildings makes this choices easier by creating a cost effective option that can be completed quickly, giving you the turn around you need to build your congregation.
Furthermore, steel buildings are a great way to add an addition on to your place of worship. Steel buildings are easily constructed on site, and the design can be tailored to accommodate any space. This makes steel buildings the perfect add-on for youth groups, study rooms, parishioner visiting suites or even a food pantry. There are a lot of options when it comes to how the building is designed, so you can adjust the building to fit your needs, whatever they happen to be.
The church is a place of refuge, and steel buildings provide the safety, security and durability to stand up to that need. Churches once relied on brick and wood because that was all that was available, but with our growing population and our fast-paced society, most religious groups need something more practical. Steel buildings are cost-effective, quick to put up, and can create a grand space for your church to meet. For more information about using steel buildings for religious meetings, contact us.
There are various wind ratings based on area throughout the country, with a heavy concentration of extremely high wind zones in the mid-western region of the country, reaching down into several southern states. Many of these states are subject to tornadoes as well. According to FEMA, even in parts of the county where there are significantly lower chances of high winds, there are “special wind regions” that can experience strong winds. Of course, weather can often play a role in wind speed and the southern and eastern coasts are also at high risk for experiencing hurricanes.
No matter what area of the country you are in, Worldwide Steel Buildings have proven time and time again to withstand, not just the test of time, but of winds and weather as well. Our buildings are set to the highest standards and internal codes and have proven to sustain minimal, if any, damage in the most severe conditions with proper maintenance.
Steel is a cost-effective and very strong material that can easily be designed into a great building used for almost any purpose, from barns to storage to churches. There are several designs we offer that should be considered based on your location and the wind and weather conditions that may come your way.
- Rigid frame – This frame is also referred to as an “I‐beam” or the “red iron” and rigid frame buildings are typically built for commercial or industrial use. This frame can be great for any type of condition, but you’ll want to consider the type of shallow roof zoning required for your area first.
- Open Web truss – This type of building has a higher roof pitch than the rigid frame and is often used in residential areas. With an extremely heavy weight, these have incredible strength in any condition that almost no other building can beat.
- Quonset Hut – These are commonly called “arch buildings” because of their curved nature. They were once used primarily for military purposes but are now used often in agriculture and farming. These buildings tend to be open and only used as a basic covering or shelter. Enclosing and insulating them can be inconvenient and costly. These are better used in areas that do not have high wind or snow load requirements.
Worldwide steel constructs our buildings unlike any other steel buildings with a strong and solid frame that beats the design and standards of our competition. In fact, our strongest buildings have 4-5 times the strength against wind compared to most other steel buildings. The buildings are designed to beat Mother Nature and withstand the worst of weather.
Before choosing your building, be sure to consider your needs, weather conditions, and zoning and building codes in your area to avoid any unforeseen issues.
