Residential Structures

PermaStructures 
manufactures steel frames residential homes compliant under US Construction Codes, Commercial Buildings, including strip mall commercial structures and warehouses.

When strength, durability and quality are the important selection factors, SteelHomes™ and steel buildings are the natural choices for brick-veneer and direct-clad construction of homes and similar low-rise residential buildings.

With steel framed structures – the most effective choice is galvanized Light Gauge Steel for the frame to add durability and longevity of the structure – Steel Frame Benefits. The frame bears or transfers all wind loads and most dead and live loads to which the structure is subjected. It also supports all cladding and lining materials and most fixtures.

Such an important function, as described above, dictates that the frame should always be made from durable materials, with no less than 50 years’ expected defect-free life. The manner in which most structures are designed and constructed currently makes it impossible to inspect many parts of the frame, including wall frames, intermediate floor framing and cathedral ceiling structures.

The frame provides the strength, stiffness and geometric stability of the building. Its ability to stay straight and square indefinitely, through varying seasons with temperature and humidity changes, is vital to just about everything attached to it – such as the brick exterior skin, roof tiles or sheeting, window units, door frames, plasterboard wall linings, ceramic tiles and so on.

Superficial and so-called “nuisance” defects in these materials, like sticking doors and windows, brickwork and cornice cracks, nail popping in wall linings and sagging roof lines, are often traced to instability in the frame. While these defects may not threaten the structural integrity of the home, their contribution to the overall cost of ownership and loss of its value can be significant.
