Engineering for Hurricane Season

Making sure your prefab metal building is engineered properly for hurricane season should be top-of-mind for many of our customers. There are simply too many companies who will claim to sell you a reliable hurricane-rate steel building structure, but the reality is, the building is under-engineered for the wind speeds in your locale.

Beware of Low Quality Steel Buildings

Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy was declared a category 1 tropical storm as it approached the east coast but was reclassified as a category 2 hurricane as it made landfall. This storm in particular showed all of us that even a category 1 or 2 storm can cause significant damage.
