Staying Safe Through the Storm
New Mexico is a pretty fortunate state when it comes to severe weather. They do not experience the severe winter storms of the north, the devastating earthquakes of California, or the life-threatening hurricanes that rip through the southeast. However, despite this good luck, there are still some natural disasters that they face. The Land of Enchantment is prone to wildfires and flooding.
These might seem like opposites, but both are very distinct possibilities in New Mexico. The best way to keep yourself safe in an environment like this is by choosing the right building material. Wood is not nearly strong enough to stand against wildfires or floods. But steel is! Steel is resistant to moisture and resistant to fire up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Steel has a melting point that is far higher than most fires reach. This means that your building may get hot, but it will not burn or melt. Steel also does not retain moisture. You will never experience structural damage caused by rotting and decaying material with steel.
At American Metal Buildings, our number one goal is providing safe, durable buildings that are designed with quality and longevity in mind. Whether you want a small storage shed or a large industrial warehouse, these structures are a fantastic investment that will provide you with years of dedicated service.
