Red Iron Commercial Steel Buildings in Florida, Georgia and Alabama

Steel construction offers many advantages to businesses and residential property owners as compared to choosing other types of building materials. Metal is much more resilient to fluctuations in weather conditions and to storms.

Red Iron Commercial Steel Buildings

As a building material, steel is less expensive than wood and is less likely to lose its structural integrity over time, helping to reduce the risk of costly repairs and rotting. This makes steel a great choice to use when building outdoor structures, including barns, workshops, and other commercial and residential buildings.

  • Solar Reflectivity (SR): Solar reflectivity or reflectance is the measure of a material’s ability to reflect solar energy or sunlight from its surface SR values are numbered Oto 1 0 A value of 0 indicates that the surface absorbs all solar energy and a value ot indicates total reflectance ENERGY STAR requires an SR value of 0.25 or higher for steep slope roofing (above 2:12) and an SR value of 0.65 or higher for low slope roofing (212 or less). For more information, please visit
  • Solar Reflectance Index (SRI): The SRI is used to determine compliance with LEED requirements and is calculated according to ASTM E 1980 using values for reflec­tance and emissivity To meet LEED requirements, a roofing material must have an SRI of 29 or greater for steep slope roofing and an SRI value of 78 or higher for low slope roofing.

Advantages of red iron buildings

Steel I-beams are popular around the world for constructing commercial buildings. The material used in red iron buildings is called steel I-beams because they are formed into this shape during the manufacturing process to make construction simpler. This helps to reduce the work and time requirements involved with manufacturing red iron buildings. Using red iron steel to construct commercial buildings is a great option for buildings and final users. It has nearly unparalleled strength and can handle greater amounts of weight, allowing the building to be finished with fewer materials. We use red iron steel I-beams for its red iron buildings, making them great options for customers of Nelson’s Buildings in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.

Red iron buildings from Nelson’s Buildings offer many other advantages. Since they are made out of steel, they are environmentally-friendly. Steel is one of the most recycled materials and contains 77% material that can be recycled. When steel is recycled, it does not lose its durability or strength. Choosing a commercial steel building can help you to feel good about your environmental impact.

“We have direct contact with engineers to plan the size and specifications of the red iron building that you want to accomplish the purposes for which you want to use it.”

By contrast, a wooden commercial building can require 60 or more trees just to build the frame. Steel is highly produced and does not require the manufacturers to cut down any trees.

Red iron steel is very durable and can withstand multiple problems. Since steel is non-combustible, these buildings are resistant to fire, termites, and rust. Commercial steel buildings from Nelson’s Buildings are also designed to withstand strong storms. Our buildings are hurricane-rated to whatever your local regulations may require in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.

The steel used to make red iron buildings is significantly less expensive than other materials for commercial projects. This helps to keep the costs of your commercial building lower and within your budget. The I-beam shapes help to increase the sturdiness of your building so that you will not need to have very many load-bearing columns. This allows you to use the interior space in more ways and gives you greater flexibility. Finally, metal is a better conductor than wood. With insulation packages, your commercial building can still be extremely energy-efficient.

Red Iron Commercial Building Color Choices

Color choices for red iron buildings

When you choose a red iron commercial structure from Nelson’s Buildings, you can select from 20 different colors that are available in both 26-gauge and 29-gauge. When you choose your color, you should do so after viewing actual color chips to give you a better idea. We offers a 40-year limited warranty for the paint upon your written request.

Each paint color choice provides numbers indicating its solar reflectivity and solar reflective index. The solar reflectivity of a paint color measures how well it reflects sunlight from the surface. This measurement ranges from 0 to 1.0. A value of 0 means that the surface absorbs all of the sunlight while a value of 1.0 means that the surface reflects all of the solar energy. Energy Star requirements for steep-slope roofs include an SR value from 0.25 or greater. The requirements for low-slope roofs include an SR value of 0.65 or greater. Our paint colors meet or exceed all Energy Star requirements.

The SRI values for the various paint colors determine how well they comply with LEED standards for emissivity and reflectance. LEED requires roof materials to have SRI values of 29 or higher for steep-slope roofs and 78 or higher for low-slope roofs. When you review the various color options, the SR and SRI values are printed directly underneath the color chips.
