Beginning in June, The Rabco Corp. will offer a new line of hybrid, single-story self-storage buildings that use wood framing and partition members on the interior instead of the traditional all-metal construction. The new line is created in hopes of off-setting the rising cost of steel.

“In our pricing models, we have seen savings of up to 20 percent over an all-steel building based on today’s prices,” said Buster Owens, president. “With the continued escalation of steel prices, there is a possibility the savings could be even greater."

The building exterior and roof systems will remain the same. Buyers can choose between a standing-seam roof system or a PBU panel screw-down roof. Exteriors will be covered in sheets of pre-painted Galvalume as well as Rabco’s standard pier and header system, which comes with a field-applied textured or pre-painted finish.
