Higher Quality finishes on your roof and ceilings due to straight members.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is it cheaper to roof with light gauge steel or timber?
Depending on the design, the overall cost of your project is cheaper when using light gauge steel trusses because:
Light gauge steel being stronger than timber allows for fewer members and precision that cuts down on wastage as the pre-engineered members reduce the labour demand on site
Overall shorter project timelines resulting to minimal expenses normally attributed to project delays
How durable is light gauge steel?
Light gauge steel structures do not shrink, warp, or decompose and are termite and rot resistant.
Will a steel framed or trussed home rust?
No. We only produce our steel frames using G550 Z275 galvanised structural steel ensuring the highest possible protection against rust. Our steel battens are coated with an alloy of Zinc and Aluminium, giving them additional protection ensuring that our steel frames are suitable for use even in coastal climates.
