The fashion of wooden and mud houses have remained popular for decades. People are used to exploiting the trees and forests as a building material for homes and commercial places. However, with the passage of time and the growing need of luxuries, the use of steel frame supported structure came in vogue. Now the same quality which was provided by wood is achieved from steel buildings along with many advantages.
The trend of frame buildings is gaining popularity because of the strength and durability offered by the material used in its building. For the structural frame, a special Red Iron is used and for the non-structural frame, the light gauge is a widely used material. These materials are used to build commercial places such as shopping malls, schools, hospitals.
Currently, homeowners are even inclined to use the steel frame for the purpose of their housing with their current building renovation. The steel buildings are much stronger than the structures and frames made of wood. The major benefit of this replacement is that it has stem out the concern of termites which was a real threat for wooden houses.
Similarly, in the case of a fire burning, wood works as fuel. The frame buildings have killed the chance of such accidents. It also lessens the cost of insurance due to its low-cost material. Apart from fire resistance, this saves people from natural havoc which involve earthquake, storm, flood, thunder and similar other mishaps.
