Trending on the farm: Steel barns and outbuildings

THEY SAY NECESSITY is the mother of invention, and it’s the spark that lights innovation as well. Here in Florida, a good portion of the year offers daily rain showers, hot temperatures, and high humidity. It’s also a haven for insects like termites and other wood-loving critters. This all adds up to bad news for wooden structures like barns, sheds, and other outbuildings.

We are seeing a definite trend toward steel buildings, whether garages or carports for the home, barns, sheds, enclosures or other outbuilding for the farm or ranch. For those in agriculture, the stormy Florida weather means that you need barns and the like to protect your animals and important equipment, stores and supplies. Similarly, residential customers also need to protect their vehicles and other equipment.

Steel buildings are a smart innovation for Florida. Our steel buildings are available in many styles and color options, and they are also customizable to match any residential, agriculture or other commercial building. Steel can stand up to Florida’s hot and humid weather, and termites don’t seem so keen on it either!

Our buildings also come with a 20-year factory warranty, and you can also get engineer-certified structures that can withstand 150- to 180-mph winds. That all adds up to buildings that will be standing for years to come.

If you need a quality building on your home or job site, contact USA Quality Steel Barns & Garages. This is one trend that will stand the test of time!
