October 3, 2019
Whether you are building a new facility or adding onto an existing building, knowing what finished pre-engineered metal buildings look like can help to ensure that you make the best decision for your specific needs. Next to making sure that the building meets requirements for function and value, having an attractive and practical looking finished facility is one of the most important qualifications for choice in design. At Ferro Building Systems, we design and supply pre-engineered metal buildings across Canada, and we can offer many different options for appearance and design.
Different Looks for Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings
It is a common misconception that a pre-engineered metal building has to look cold and industrial. Because these buildings are so adaptable in design, there is a very high likelihood that you have seen pre-engineered metal buildings and not known that they were built in this style of construction. Although there are many buildings that are made entirely out of metal and do not elaborate on the simplistic design, such as warehouses and industrial facilities, many other buildings will feature beautiful facades, intricate interior design, and trendy aesthetic qualities. Some different looks for metal buildings include:
Simple and Straightforward
Pre-engineered buildings that stick to the normal, out-of-the-box metal style will typically feature metal supports, beams, and rafters, metal cladding or siding, and many other durable, metallic features. This method of finishing a pre-engineered building has value, but many people desire a more unique or warm aesthetic approach.
Wood elements can give a building a warm, natural touch, which is great for pre-engineered metal buildings. Whether your building is being used as a store, an office facility, or a restaurant, using exposed wood throughout the interior and exterior of the building can look great.
Stone and Brick
Whether you do a simple band of stone around the lower half of the building or do a facade entirely out of brick, there are many options to improve the look of a metal building by using masonry.
Metal Building Designs
There are many different ways of finishing a metal building to make it look however you want it to, and there are also many different ways to design them to accommodate different floorplans and layouts. One of the biggest advantages of pre-engineered metal buildings is their versatility and adaptability, so it is always possible to find a design that suits your needs and preferences.
