Steel Residential Construction
Steel residential construction has become more popular in recent decades as the cost of steel has decreased. With its strength and durability steel residential construction offers a number of positives over wood or other materials used in home construction.
The first step in the steel residential construction process is the development of an architectural design. While in some cases the client can have a home built to their exact specifications, cost and building codes frequently lead to the adaptation of a common design developed by the builder and used hundreds, if not thousands of times. After establishing a floor layout, or plan, and checking to make sure the design meets building code standards, construction begins. After the laying of the slab, the frame of the house goes up. Without the proper design, it is impossible to know the length and depth of the house, the size of the rooms, the height of each floor or the location of the ceiling. In steel residential construction, steel beams serve as the borders of each room, the exterior frame of the house and the bars holding up the roof.
Once the residential construction framing begins, other parts of the house can be put in around it. One of the most important steps is the installation of water pipes and electrical wiring. Weather protection and retaining walls come next. Inside, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC) are installed, along with the electrical wiring and plumbing started on the exterior. Insulation is put in and floors are laid before the walls are put in; in more modern homes, wiring for cable and other electronic systems is put in at this time as well. Once the wiring is complete, the walls and ceilings are completed. Personal touches like cabinetry, furnishings and other internal d?cor complete the process.
Steel residential construction should be an exact science. While most houses built today are from common designs, the following of the blueprints must be price. Any mistake made during the construction of a house's frame can have long-term negative effects on the entire structure.
