Commercial Steel Stud Framing for Your Encinitas Building

Category: Uncategorized

steel framingAlthough wood studs have been considered a standard product in the construction of buildings, approximately 40 percent of commercial buildings are built with metal studs currently, so if you’re constructing a commercial building in Encinitas, commercial steel stud framing installed by drywall and stucco professionals may be the way to go.

Why Should You Use Metal Studs?

Many drywall and stucco experts recommend using metal studs because they’re lightweight, and they resist insects, rotting, and fire. Additionally, metal studs are more affordable than wood studs, and they don’t split or shrink. Metal studs are galvanized to prevent corrosion and are uniformly straight. Commercial property owners who value environmentally friendly products will be happy to know that steel studs are made from at least 25 percent recycled steel.

One disadvantage of steel studs is that they conduct cold, but as long as your drywall and stucco contractor apply insulation between the steel and the outside wall to serve as a thermal break, this problem is resolved.
