Why Green Buildings are Important to California

What is Climate Change? How It’s Affecting California?

California is facing a climate crisis; wildfires, drought, and extreme temperatures have increasingly plagued the state since the mid-20th century. Climate scientists predict that these global warming events will continue to occur because of increased greenhouse gases caused by human activity. Even as global governments work to reverse the effects of climate change, CA residents must consider how to prepare for the future. Californians recognize that their access to clean air and water is more and more at risk. The three top environmental concerns for residents are drought, wildfire, and climate change. With these in mind, it’s time to assess how green buildings can benefit the future of California and its residents.

Why Green Buildings are Important

Why are green buildings important to California? Residents of CA are known for their eco-friendly policies and environmentally responsible lifestyles. As climate change takes an economic toll, green buildings offer benefits to everyone!

1. Improved Indoor Environment: Quality of Life

Green metal buildings promote interior air quality! While wood buildings degrade and release toxic particulates into the air, steel buildings are built without the use of chemicals. Metal buildings are particularly good for residents who have allergies or asthma concerns.

2. Enhanced Health: Eco-Friendly for Life

Green metal buildings are perfect for customers who are seeking an environmentally friendly lifestyle. Steel is 100% recyclable, and most steel buildings (including Coast to Coast Carports structures) are built with premium recycled components.

3. Reduced Operational Cost and Maintenance: Traditional vs. Green

Are you ready to save some money? Green metal buildings are built up to 50% more cheaply and 50% faster than traditional wood structures! You read that correctly. Half the time and half the cost!

4. Energy-Efficient

Metal buildings are energy-efficient; most owners report a 30% energy cost reduction! Green steel buildings are easily insulated and expertly sealed for maximum energy efficiency.

5. Carbon Footprint Reduction: Saving the Planet, One Step at a Time

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) estimates that 30% of all greenhouse gases in the United States are generated by buildings. Do your part and invest in a green, energy-efficient, metal building today!

6. Efficient Material: Minimal Use for Maximum Impact

Most metal buildings are built with premium recycled materials! Upcycling – the process of reusing old products – is the latest trend in construction. Steel buildings are easily refurbished or melted down to be reused. Talk to Coast to Coast Carports engineers today to see how you can efficiently use metal in your next build!

7. Built to Last

Certified metal buildings are forecast to last for fifty years or more! Thanks to the quality workmanship of steel structures, like those at Coast to Coast Carports, your new, custom, green metal building will outlast any traditional wood structure.

In this way, we intend to create a more sustainable future.

What Makes Steel Building “Green”?

1. Steel is 100% Recyclable

Every leftover scrap, every damaged panel, and every used component can be recycled! While our engineers only use the highest-quality recycled steel for our buildings, every steel component can be recycled and reused.

2. Steel Structures Conserve Natural Resources

The more we recycle, the more we preserve our natural resources! Coast to Coast Carports is proud to protect virgin forests and mountains with our commitment to reusing resources.

California is more prone to natural disasters than most states. It’s important for building owners to be prepared! Our metal buildings are built to handle natural disasters.

Wind, fire, and snow are no match for our certified structures! Proven to withstand up to 140mph winds and 25psf snow loads, our steel structures are built to withstand the rigors of climate change.

5. Less Waste During Construction

Metal buildings are constructed with state-of-the-art software. Our factory precision cuts every steel component to eliminate wasteful scrap.

If you intend to use your metal building for more than just seasonal applications, it’ll likely need insulation. Insulating your structure is a fantastic way to reduce moisture buildup and develop a more even internal temperature. But beyond that, it’s a necessary part of transforming your metal building from a simple shed into something more.

Insulation forms a barrier between the exterior elements and your building's interior. It holds in warmer are during the winter while allowing you to cut cooling costs during the summer months. It also prevents condensation from forming inside your building, which can be a significant issue for sensitive metal components such as fasteners and framing.
