What is the difference between metal and steel?
The main difference between steel and metal is that steel is an iron alloy, while metals are elements naturally found in the earth’s crust and extracted from various parts of the world. Metals are non-magnetic, ductile and non-corrosive elements with high resistance to tarnishing.
How is primary steel different from secondary steel?
Primary steel is steel produced from BOF process manufacturing steel or from processes of conversion using BF pigs. Secondary steel is generally produced in a ladle, after adding ferroalloys and other alloying elements to primary steel.
Is a steel construction safe and secure?
All our steel buildings have a CE mark to ensure the highest quality. All our steel mills have a CE certificate in accordance with BS EN 1090-2: 2009.
What are the advantages of steel construction?
Steel structures are designed according to your exact specification as well as for their intended use. We estimate that savings compared to conventional building materials are at least 30%.

Steel buildings also have the capacity to last longer than traditional building structures.

Steel buildings are easier to maintain and extremely flexible, For example, you can easily add doors and windows, expand existing structures, add storage options such as mezzanine floors and modern insulation, and also use the roof space to collect solar and rain energy.

What is the highest quality of stainless steel?
The most well-known variety is type 304, also known as 18/8 and 18/10 because it consists of 18% chromium and 8% / 10% nickel. The second most commonly used stainless steel is type 316.
How long does it take to create an offer?
The quote takes about a business week. We are proud of our attention to detail and we work quickly and efficiently.
How long does it take to design and deliver a steel building?
Depending on various factors, the length required for planning and building a steel building may vary. Factors from redesign to structural complications, and even some factors that may be beyond human control, can affect delivery length.
What are the cladding options?
There are two basic options: single-layer or pre-insulated profile sheets for roofs and walls. Roof lighting options are available if required. 

For a single layer, most customers choose an anti-condensation nonwoven undercoat on the bottom of the roofing membrane.

Why is steel a popular building material?
Steel has tensile strength. The power-to-weight ratio makes work easier. It reduces shipping and labour costs compared to wood, and it is lighter than wood.
What is BS EN 1090?
It is a British and European standard that regulates the supply of structural steel. It ensures the quality of production methods and materials used.

Follow the links to our certification.

Does stainless steel corrode?
Stainless steel is much more resistant to corrosion than ordinary carbon or alloy steels, but it may corrode under certain circumstances. It is called “stainless” but not “impossible to get dirty”. However, stainless steel does not corrode under normal atmospheric or water-based conditions, as shown by kitchen sinks, cutlery, pots and work surfaces.
Why polish stainless steel?
Stainless steel tends to tarnish and get water stains. Therefore, polish your steel objects regularly to restore the shine. You can polish the surface of stainless steel with water, non-toxic cleaners such as vinegar, olive oil or a special steel cleaner.
What steel buildings do you supply?
We can supply any type of building with steel portal frames. Our main competences are steel structures for private homes and storage solutions.
Do I need a building permit?
Steel structures from Clifton Hill and Montpelier Builders & Construction are intended as permanent structures, so it is very likely that you will need to get a building permit. Clifton Hill and Montpelier Builders & Construction will provide the drawings and information needed by the planning department.
What precautions should be taken in steel structure designs?

Corrosion –

structures exposed to harsh climatic conditions, such as marine projects require corrosion-resistant alloys.

Fireproof –

steel does not ignite easily and is, therefore, a safe choice. However, other materials in the building may cause fires. Extremely high temperatures caused by fire can weaken steel and soften and break it down.

Are steel buildings affordable?
Yes, steel buildings are often cheaper than other solutions because they can be built faster, saving time and money.

The lifespan of steel also exceeds other building materials. If you look at the life of a metal building, you will see that it is a reasonable long-term investment. After all, maintaining a metal building is cheaper and easier compared to wooden structures.

What is steel detailing?
Steel detailing is creating workshop drawings for a steelmaker. A steel manufacturer company supplies and sometimes installs steel scaffolding for a construction project.

Steel detailing also involves the production of layout instructions to facilitate the installation and assembly of the steel scaffolding. Structural steel detailing is an important and necessary process in all manufacturing and construction operations, such as in the construction of domestic and industrial buildings, factories and institutes, as well as shipbuilding.

Why is steel good for construction?
Steel constructions are resistant to natural and artificial wear. They are resistant to termites, fire, rust and decomposition. In fact, structural steel is not only a stronger material but also has a much higher strength-to-weight ratio than other materials.
What steel is used in construction?
Normal carbon steel or mild steel. It is the most common type of steel used in construction, also known as mild steel. It is extremely strong and durable and provides a solid construction.
