Following are some of the advantages and disadvantages listed below:- Pros: Durability and strength are the basic feature about this alloy. The wooden result is they tend to get weak and with time collapses posing a considerable threat to the life and soul of the people living in such a construction. These structures may also have bug problems but they are less likely to pose a threat to the life of the person. Wooden frames also tend to go out of shape because of wet weather. This could invariably make the whole construction to distort completely. On the contrary, it has the advantage of surviving any weather. Steel has both durability and longevity that can go on for a period. The maintenance cost for steel constructions are less as compared to wooden structures. These structures are robust enough to withstand natural calamities such as heavy rain, hurricanes etc. The advancement in technology has offered the people reinforced steel. It is capable to endure earthquakes as well. The homes are built slightly different from the brick or wooden homes. Therefore, it is highly advisable to hire the services of a professional architect for designing and erecting a house or building.

You have to use screws instead of nails, which are also more expensive than nails. It has to be properly insulated to make it inhabitable for all weather conditions. Poor or non-insulation can result in higher energy costs and uncomfortable living conditions. Quicker infrastructure growth has become the order of the day for most of the countries. This ensures stability as well as rapid infrastructure growth. This technique has rapidly become popular for residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings.
