When you hear the term “Prefab”, it’s short for prefabrication which is the technique used to make individual building components which are then sent to the construction site for assembly. This type of construction technique has become more popular not only in Louisiana, but throughout the country. This is true for a variety of reasons.
Prefab steel buildings used to be frowned upon for the most part because the technology was still in the early stages and wasn’t as advanced as it is now. People used to say that all prefabricated metal buildings look the same, but this has changed dramatically. You can pick and choose the way you want the exterior to look. No one would know the difference. Steel buildings can look one way in New Orleans and another in Shreveport and yet over in Baton Rouge.
Since variety is so important with any building project, it’s important to discuss customization with any steel building company you talk to. Obviously, you want to talk about building size, dimensions, types of doors & windows, exterior look and interior features. We recently put a skylight in a prefab steel building in New Orleans which was no problem. The freedom to choose what you need for your construction project is important.
Not only do you as the customer have a wide variety of choices with prefab steel buildings, but this option is very cost effective as well. Since these metal buildings are made on a large scale, it reduces the overall price. It’s also true that prefab metal buildings save on labor costs, construction site clean-up and are easier to maintain over the life of the building. Thus, on the cost side, nothing beats prefab steel structures for the quality they offer. The highest quality for your money is all but assured for your investment in prefabricated steel buildings.
Besides the cost savings, the best part of building with steel is the high quality of the structure which makes it very strong and durable. Obviously, the extreme weather in Louisiana can be legendary, so durability is important when it comes to protecting your investment. Repair costs are cheaper and whatever is inside your prefab building is safer. They are also simple and easy to maintain and clean, which should come as a relief to many. Simple soap and water is usually sufficient to clean up anything on your building.
Steel buildings are a great option when it comes to new building construction. They cover all your needs at the highest quality with the cheapest rate. This is why prefab steel buildings are the future, and here to stay.
