Fun Steel Facts about Carports and Metal Garages

Fun Steel Facts:

If you are looking for an environmental friendly building, you should consider a steel carport or metal garage.

Eco-Friendly Steel

Over the years, Steel has earned the nickname “the Enviro-Metal” because it can be recycled over and over again without loss to the quality. In fact, more steel is recycled than all other recyclable materials combined! And, to make it even more green, steel buildings are typically manufactured with a high proportion of recycled content and more than 95% of the water used for steel-making is recycled. You can’t get much greener than that!

The Steel Recycling Institute says, “A typical 2,000-square foot home requires about 40-50 trees, about an acre’s worth. With steel, only the equivalent of about six scrapped automobiles is needed.”
