Why Home Makeovers are Not Declining in this Troubled Economy

Posted on October 1, 2012 by Reda Abouleish

home-appliance-kitchen-makeover-stainless-steelMoney is tough and the most hit by this decreasing downfall are homeowners and the real estate business.  Homes are going into foreclosure and many homeowners are filing for bankruptcy but there is a resurgence occurring amongst home remodels; these remodels improve the value of a home, make you stand out over the “for sale” competition, save you money on utility bills and decrease upkeep and replacement costs.  Let me explain.

Many homeowners are examining their living spaces and bank accounts.  Some are coming to the conclusion that the home has to go to stay financially afloat but how can they compete with other homes on the market?  By taking an objective look at the home, it is easy to find what would bring you the most return and distinguish itself from the rivalry.  The only problem for some homeowners is that they become too emotionally attached to the home making them oblivious to the problematic areas.  Instead of doing this first task alone, recruit some friends and/or a professional who can honestly evaluate your home against the completion while providing you with constructive criticism. Once this is achieved listen to the feedback and unveil what can be done to receive the most return on your investment.  Generally, this involves two rooms in the house, the kitchen and the bathroom.

To keep your bathroom and kitchen hygienic there is one material that works for both areas, stainless steel. It is durable, long-lasting, simple to clean and provides a fresh aesthetic appeal.  The advantages to working with this material are it also decreases any upkeep and replacement costs due to its longevity and corrosion-resistant traits.  Furthermore, it is a cost-effective material that is customizable to order.  The sizes, dimensions, brush finishes can be produced to your desire.

The Relationship Between Stainless Steel and the Enviornment

Be smart like the London Olympics 2012 Committee by choosing stainless steel for your next project.

The London Olympics Committee for 2012 put into thought the roles types of steel would play in the creation for venues and public areas for the Olympic Games.  The main material chosen had to exhibit environmentally safe traits.  The Committee also took into consideration the concern the growing impact the selected metal would have on the land, nature and the people around it.  The Committee chose stainless steel for a wide array of reasons including it being a 100% recyclable metal.

Today I am going to share with you an insight of why stainless steel was chosen for the Olympics and why it is the right choice for your next home and/or business project.

When producing metal for a project much energy goes into the production process.  In the past, manufacturers and engineers wasted an abundant amount of energy on soldering, welding and implementing other techniques to get a selected metal just right.  Steel manufacturers took notice of this excessive energy it emitted so they decided to make a change.  Currently, stainless steel manufacturers evolved this technique and it is now an energy efficient process making it a high quality, cost-effective, energy saving, environmentally safe selection for you.

Why Stainless Steel is the Perfect Sustainable Material Choice for Builders and Architects

Posted on July 8, 2012 by Reda Abouleish

Stainless steel is an ideal sustainable material for your next project.

There are many reasons why stainless steel is an ideal choice for architects and engineers.  It is an environmentally friendly material that is visually pleasing, purposeful and adaptable to various industries, sizes and shapes.  Modern design seems to be relying upon it more than traditional materials for these reasons.  It can display different details and architectural looks while still delivering high quality, durable and corrosion-resistant traits.

2 Advantages to Choosing Stainless Steel

Reusable

If someone must tear down the material and rebuild over it without saving a building and/or project then the architect does not fret about the affects it has on the environment.  Stainless steel can be dissolved using specific methods.  Once this is completed, the material can be reused, reduced and recycled into something new ensuring the metal is not wasted or left to remain without purpose polluting the land.

Conserves Energy

Some building materials need to be treated before it is able to conserve energy.  For instance, if you do not use stainless steel material to transfer and preserve the coolness of an air conditioning then the results can be unpredictable.  Save yourself the headache.  Stainless steel comes with a highly solar reflective index value that does not need to be applied and reapplied.  It is a characteristic embedded into the metal meaning you do not have to waste time, money and material on reapplying and replacing it to ensure energy conservation.

How Architects and Building Designers Choose What Steel to Use

Different steels are used for distinct purposes. Find out which steel grade meets your project requirements.

Steel comes in many different strengths, weights and finishes.  Due to the diverse attributes steel demonstrates, the same steel would not be used for all objectives.  You will not use the exact steel for a stainless steel bridge and steel rails.  The needs are distinctive.  Let’s take a closer look on how the selection process for such materials is implemented.

When designing a bridge, you need a metal that is able to hold significant weight without fraying or breaking.  You need one that is higher in strength than what is required to ensure the safety of passengers and vehicles.  Also, you need to check the toughness it has to stress corrosion cracking.  Find out if it is able to hold up under extreme weight and able to be welded and joined to other pieces without fracturing or corroding.  The tiniest crack can spread and rupture the entire structure along with anyone on, underneath and near it.  The corrosion resistance is vital. If this type of metal bridge falls apart then the results would be fatal.

Alternatively, if you are looking to produce steel rails then your needs change from the above.  A strong metal that emits outstanding wear opposition is the way to go.

Stainless steel pipes are used in construction due to its corrosion resistance and strength.

Stainless steel is found in many different industries throughout the world.  You can see it in medical, oil and gas, marine and in construction.  It is very popular in these arenas due to its corrosion resistance and durability.  Today, steel comes in many different grades and finishes suitable to meet a wide array of environmental settings and functions.

You are able to order a stainless steel pipe in a welded or a seamless version.  Some experts state that a seamless piping is stronger than welded.  On the other hand, a welded pipe is produced from a flat-rolled steel which provides it with a better wall uniformity than seamless.  So how do you make your choice?   Examine what is the purpose of the metal and what are the specifications you need.  To be certain, call one of our stainless steel and nickel alloy bar experts.  We are here to answer whatever questions you may have and guide you down the right path.

Another aspect to think about is the shape.  This metal pipe comes in different forms.  You may choose from square, round, rectangular and more.  Check out our large selection and decide what silhouette works best for you.

When building private homes, residential buildings and commercial property think about material you using to contain flammable gases, transport water and preserve heat.  These steel pieces are ideal for such scenarios.
