Benefits of Steel vs Wood Framing???
OK, here in Aussie land it is not unusual to frame in steel, due to termites and wood costs being high.
That said, I have done alot of reading on the pros of steel and the pros of wood, however, does anyone here really KNOW the true benefits of steel framing??? It is very difficult to sort out the "hype"!!
I like the fact that most of the light weight steel framing companies make your pieces for you and all you have to do is put them up (or hire someone to do that for you), including your roof trusses.
I also like the idea that everything is straight. They say it will stay that way, but is that really true???
Thanks for any respones!!!
