Aluminum: Wally Watt, Inc. buildings are constructed out of aluminum. Our aluminum features a factory baked enamel finish which provides a virtually maintenance free solution. A strong and durable material, which resists corrosion, rust, oxidization, fading, warping, termites and decay. The life expectancy of this product is in excess of twenty years.
Wood: Requires maintenance including priming and painting. Susceptible to moisture, which can warp and rot the building. Additionally termites are attracted to wood and if untreated can destroy a structure. Sunlight can cause damage to the exterior of buildings and require hours of annual upkeep and maintenance. Over time, the buildings show signs of aging.
Metal or Steel: The average life expectancy of this type of building is usually five to seven years in the coastal areas. Almost all types of these buildings require a concrete slab or separate floor system. Once these buildings begin to rust, the contents are exposed to the elements.
Vinyl : Fading, warping and discoloration are the major maintenance concerns. When the buildings fade, warp or buckle, due to the harsh elements of the sun, the buildings are more susceptible to leaking. These buildings are extremely lightweight and are often not anchored to the ground. Additionally, the majority of these buildings do not meet the Florida Hurricane and Wind load requirements.
Plastic: Sun, wind and rain take their toll on these products. The coastal elements limit the life expectancy of these products to typically less than five years. These products fade, warp, buckle, crack, and are more susceptible to leaking. Additionally, the majority of these buildings do not meet the Florida Hurricane and Wind load requirements.
