There’s something to be said for the rustic appearance of an old wooden barn. Looks aren’t everything, however, and beyond providing a pastoral facade, a barn made of wood offers little else to farmers and ranchers in the 21st Century. Building a barn from wood used to be the only option, but it was one of inferior quality. Regardless of the level of workmanship, a wooden barn is high-maintenance, requiring frequent repairs and painting or treatment of the wood to prolong the barn’s lifespan. All of that changed when metal began being used in place of wood to construct barns.
Over the years, metal barns have proven to be better than wood for numerous reasons. Steel is far more durable than wood and can stand up to weathering better, greatly reducing the amount of time that needs to be spent on repairing and maintaining a barn. Metal doesn’t crack, warp, or shrink, so a metal barn remains secure against the small openings that let in heat, cold, and pests. The sturdiness of metal means little to no painting required to keep it looking great or to protect the surface beneath. Plus, metal is fireproof, making it a safer choice to house livestock, equipment, feed, or anything else you need to store.
