Building a Shipping Container Home and Extending its Roof Life


 
Travel & Tourism
Cheap to purchase Shipping containers are readily available. They are straight, crisp, modern in aesthetics, and durable. Allowing openings for penetrations and space planning yet easy to reinforce and cut their monocoque body makes them solid.

Required for a home their floor load capacity is far exceeding, extreme. To 6 units (higher if cross braced and empty) they are stackable. You have learned and read much of their promise already if you are here.

But for building construction why shipping container really make sense, is that they are a perfect, portable inherently standard module. So what's so great about that? Let’s start by looking at modular construction and taking a step back.

To manufacture peace time products instead of armaments when factories sought to retool assembly lines after World War II Modern modular construction was born. Labour was and still is the biggest single expense in conventional building construction. This expense is compounded by the uncertainty of weather, time delays, and precarious nature of building sites.

Poor quality control is added to the mix. By bringing the majority of a home's construction into a factory, controlled environment modern modular construction sought to alleviate these issues. Via rail, air, waterway, or highway began the reduction and dissection of buildings and homes into component modules transportable to sites.

By the time they are retired from overseas service work Shipping containers have generally lived a hectic life. Before hitting their golden years the rest may end up journeying the high seas three to five times although following a single ocean crossing lots of shipping containers are retired. They begin a new career and are bought in the storage business at this stage, or they become a storm shelter and get buried or else they are modified into small business or a house. The condition of the container's roof is one item that to continue to perform in any of these areas is critical for shipping containers for sale.

With a small side to side pitch to drain water shipping container roofing is simply corrugated sheet metal. Protecting itself by forming rust layer deterioration stops the steel is a special formulation called Cor-Ten steel.

You may encounter small pin holes in the container roof and the roofing will continue to deteriorate if water puddles in a particular spot. For this problem a simple Google search gives you many fixes that you can select from and for your consideration I would like to add another one here.

Leasing and selling mobile offices I have spent some time along with storage containers. With a commercial rubber roof system newer mobile offices are typically made but with a galvanized steel roof many of the older ones were constructed.

Rather than hot dipped the galvanizing was just a coating therefore with time it would wear out and like containers in the roofing system we would experience small pin holes. We had a great deal of success to repair this problem.
