Construction: Cold-Formed Steel Framing

Cold-Formed Steel Framing There are many reasons why steel framing has come to the forefront as one of the best and most feasible alternative building materials for residential and commercial construction. Steel framing is easy to handle on-site. It is light in weight because steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any construction material, resulting in the use of less framing material compared to wood for an equal size structure. An average 2,000 square foot steel framed house can generate as little as a cubic yard of recyclable scrap. While many construction sites may have large amounts of construction and demolition waste to dispose, using steel will minimize that problem as it can be easily recycled responsibly.
