Mold & Rot Resistant
Steel framing is a great way to build homes that resist the onset and growth of mold and rot, which easily form in the presence of moisture. Steel framing members are straight and connected mechanically (screwed vs. nailed), offering tight sealants. Unlike wood, steel does not provide a food-source for these organisms to grow and spread. Moisture does not get into steel studs, substantially eliminating the expansion and contraction of construction materials around windows and doors, where leaks can occur.
