Though Louisiana doesn’t experience strong winds for most of the year, it’s extremely prone to hurricanes, with Grand Isle and other islands in the Gulf of Mexico most affected. Louisiana also has its peak tornado season in November, as storms are common in the middle of the state. Your steel structure can brave the strong winds of tornadoes and hurricanes with benefits including:
- Weather resistance – Steel is a highly durable material that protects well against heavy rain, snow, hail, high winds, tornadoes, and even earthquakes.
- Easy cleaning – Unlike traditional wooden structures, steel isn’t porous, so cleaning is easy, using a simple pressure washer and mild solution.
- Color retention – During the manufacturing process, color is added to the steel, so it doesn’t need repainting as often as wooden structures do.
- Fire resistance – Steel is a noncombustible material, making it fireproof.
With a steel garage or barn, you can be more confident that your property won’t be as severely affected as it would be if it were a traditional wooden structure.
