It is certain that many of you have heard of Microsoft, Dell, Google, Amazon, etc. Well, these are the tech giants that are currently ruling the digital world in various niches. They are serving customers in different categories, yet there is one thing common between them.
Microsoft: The computer giant Microsoft was started in a garage in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The founders wrote their first version of BASIC computer programming language for early personal computers.
Amazon: Jeff Bezos dreamed of his multi-national company ‘Amazon’ in the garage of a Washington house that he rented in 1994.
Dell: Michael Dell, founder of Dell computers, worked in his off-campus housing garage in Austin to turn his business idea into reality.
Google: In 1998, Larry Page and Sergey Brin rented a garage owned by Susan Wojcicki and her husband, where they worked to build the new and today’s famous Search Engine (Google).
This gives you a clear picture of where most tech giants started. Garages have been the initial place for most big brands that have changed the way we think about garage uses.
Today, technology has leaped, and we are today available with prefabricated steel garages that are advantageous over conventional stick garages. Below are the reasons why steel garages dominate over timber garages.
Resistant to Pests, Termites: Wood garages are susceptible to pests, termites, and wood ants that degrade their life. You need timely inspection and repairs to eliminate them from harming your building. However, steel garages don’t face such issues. Instead, steel structures are resistant to pests and termites that extend their life to decades.
Resistant to Wildfire: Wildfires are common in some states of the USA. So, if you live in such areas, your wood garage would get damaged by natural or man-made fire accidents. The biggest demerit of considering a wood garage is that fire incidents also damage your valuables.
On the other hand, steel has a high melting point, making it a fire-resistant material. Steel buildings ensure your essentials are stored without worrying about wildfire or man-made fire.
Low Maintenance: Timely maintenance is a must if you want to continue using your garage for decades. Wood garages require frequent and expensive repairs as they are susceptible to pests, fire, and weather troubles. However, steel outranks wood in this regard! Steel garages are free from wood-related issues. Moreover, galvanized steel is used for construction, making steel structures resistant to rusting and corrosion.
Eco-Friendly: Steel is a 100% recyclable material that can be reused multiple times without compromising its strength and durability. Steel from a demolished building can be reused for other steel garage projects. This helps in protecting land from unauthorized landfilling and discourages deforestation.
Certified Metal Garages: Weather has a substantial impact on your garage building. Wood structures can confront moderate weather conditions like sunlight, regular rainfall, winds, etc. However, your timber structure won’t last long under harsh weather conditions. However, steel is built to stand still against harsh weather troubles like tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods.
