Much like old wives’ tales – myths about light gauge steel framing can cause unnecessary barriers for builders thinking about making the switch.

It is time to debunk those steel framing myths and that is exactly what this blog from StrucSoft Solutions* does. The blog nips some of those inaccuracies in the bud and instead focuses on the benefits of building with what is increasingly being considered “an awesome construction material”.
