Wood VS Mild Steel

Kistang - Wood is a material that is always hunted by our society, this makes several types of plants begin to be threatened, so that it forces us to look for other alternatives to wood as a material for making furniture and building property, one of which is using mild steel, plastic, iron and other materials.

Even so, there are still many of our people who are looking for and hunting for this basic wood material because there are many advantages that we cannot get from other materials, but the government and businessmen are starting to spin their brains to shift the use of wood to other materials, one of which is by using mild steel which is new. Recently, it is being popularly used by our society, especially for the manufacture of house roofs.

Wood VS Mild Steel Frame For The Roof Of The House Which Is Superior

Steel and wood frames as the basic materials for making house roofs have both advantages and disadvantages, which we have summarized from various sources for us to break down into the following points:

1. Price of mild steel VS wood

In the past, the price of wood was much cheaper than steel, but gradually the price of wood is much more expensive than steel itself. This is because the amount of wood that the market wants is more than the supply of wood itself, both in traders, farmers and even in the forest.

Due to the limitations of the wood, the current price of wood is much more expensive than in the past, in other words the price of wood has fluctuated sharply than before. Besides that, the process of installing roofs made of mild steel is relatively fast and also more practical than wood.

So in terms of the price of mild steel is superior to the price of wood.

2. Strength of Wood VS Mild Steel

Wood is a material that is strong enough for the roof of the house, but the wood itself has several drawbacks, namely wood is easily affected by fungus or eaten by termites, which are the main enemies of wood-based materials.

So that in utilizing wood as the basic material for the roof of the house, we have to process the wood with additional costs such as anti-termite and fungal drugs.

This is inversely proportional if we use mild steel for the basic material of the roof of the house where its strength is unquestionable besides that mild steel is also not easy to rust because the basic material is specifically different from ordinary iron (conventional iron)

In terms of strength and durability, mild steel is still superior when compared to wood in the manufacture of roofs.

3. Work on the roof of a wooden house vs mild steel

As we mentioned a little about this issue above, Sanya's work on roofs made of mild steel is much easier than working on roofs made of wood.

This is because mild steel has been formed and structured from the start, we just need to assemble it in a different field from the roof of a house made of wood where we have to form it first and then we can arrange or assemble it so that the process is much more difficult and time consuming.

In terms of practicality and speed of processing, mild steel is still superior when compared to wood for roofing houses.

4. Environmental Impact of Wood VS Mild Steel

If we look at the environmental impact of using wood in making roofs, it means that we have removed 1 or more tree trunks in the forest as we know these trees produce oxygen that we breathe and prevent natural disasters such as floods and landslides.

In other words, using mild steel in making roofs is the same as helping to save our forests and the environment, so you can say that mild steel is more environmentally friendly.

That's the result of the comparison of mild steel with wood for making house roofs, hopefully it can be your reference if you want to add it you can comment below and I thank you for visiting our blog.
