Joe Vella, President of Fifthshire Homes, Discusses Sustainable Steel Framed Homes With Business Review Canada

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - In an interview with Business Review Canada, Joe Vella, president of Fifthshire Homes, explains the advantage of steel framed homes over traditional wood-framed homes.

The company began to focus on steel frames when Vella noticed a problem with the quality of lumber it was using. According to Vella, many clients were complaining of problems six months after the house was built. "Wood is inherent to shrinkage and movement and humidity and temperature changes," he says in the article. "Steel framing doesn't lend itself to mold because it's not an organic material like wood is. With steel, we haven't had any problems since we've been using it."
