One service that we offer is premium-quality steel stud framing with metal studs. As you probably know, most walls are made of a wooden framework with drywall covering them. What you may not know is that you can opt to use steel beams instead of wood. Of course, steel studs are more expensive than wooden ones, but they provide many benefits in exchange for the added cost.
The first and most obvious benefit is durability. All wood will eventually rot, just as steel will eventually rust. The difference is that it takes a lot longer for coated metal studs to rust than it does for a wooden 2x4 to rot away. If you need a wall that will last as long as possible with maximum impact resistance, steel studs are the way to go.
Even better, metal studs will never warp or bend, as wood tends to do. When wood becomes wet, or sometimes when it gets too hot, it bends. If the bend is not corrected, it gets worse and worse until structural failure occurs. Steel, on the other hand, will retain its shape for many years to come.
Another advantage of steel framing is the fact that it allows you to create a space between the floor and your drywall. This is good because of the fact that gypsum drywall boards love water, and tend to soak it up readily. Thus, steel framing can work to preserve the life of your drywall.
Metal stud framing is also faster and more efficient than traditional wood framing. This means fewer work hours and a smaller bill for the customer. In the end, the money that you save on labor will often make up for the extra cost of the studs. If you've got a large room that needs partitioning or a damaged wall that needs repairing, metal stud framing gives you a way to improve the durability of your home or business with the power of steel.
