Steel Studs and Steel Framing
What can we say about steel studs? You need them? We have them!
Steel framing is used in most office and apartment construction, and it has several advantages over wood. Steel studs are perfectly straight. They don’t shrink or split. They’re light and easy to store, plus they resist fire, insects, and rot. They are also easier to move/correct for us amateurs.
The overall cost between steel framing and wood framing is about the same. Note that for heavy cabinets, such as overhead kitchen cabinets, they may not be strong enough to support the weight, even with drywall on them. Basic sizes and special order, all US Made at Mans Lumber & Millwork.
