Choosing the right building for you and your business is a big decision. One has to think of immediate needs as well as forecast future needs to ensure such a large project will serve the business for years and often decades to come. Butler Manufacturing has been around for over 100 years and has always had a deep dedication to quality, durability, efficiency, and value. Butler buildings stand out as a superior choice for a variety of reasons. In this article, we'll explore seven key reasons that make Butler Buildings an ideal investment for your next project.

1. Modern Innovations in Design and Fabrication

Butler Manufacturing incorporates the latest technologies in its design and fabrication process. Over the years, with dedication to innovation, Butler has acquired more than 50 patents, including the industry's first weather-tight, standing seam roof. This innovative approach results in building components that are durable, energy-efficient, and require low maintenance over time. Butler uses advanced fabrication methods to produce meticulously designed components, ensuring a low cost of ownership. For example, the MR-24 roof system is constructed with factory pre-punched structural systems for quick and accurate alignment in the field, ensuring a secure fit and providing leading protection against weather elements​​.

2. Streamlined Building Process

Butler buildings are designed for a simplified and streamlined construction process. Butler buildings are pre-engineered, meaning building components are manufactured to the project's precise specifications at a Butler plant and then shipped and assembled on-site. This drastically cuts down on errors and construction times, which helps lower costs. Working with a Butler Builder, you are working with an expert in Butler building systems, ensuring a smooth process from start to finish. This efficient design, manufacturing, and construction streamline the building process, allowing for quicker construction without sacrificing quality or value​​.

3. Durable Building Systems

Durability is a hallmark of Butler building systems. Butler uses only the highest-quality materials and finishes to ensure long-term strength and reduced maintenance requirements. Features like seamed-in gable trims and steel rod bracing, instead of cable bracing, in their metal roofs contribute to this durability, providing resilience against leaks and maintaining structural integrity over time​​​​. Butler buildings are intentionally overbuilt so owners can focus on their business and rest easy that their people and products are safe and sound.

4. Exceptional Value and Warranty Protection

Butler buildings offer tremendous value due to their design, craftsmanship, and comprehensive warranty coverage. The Butler-Cote™ roof and wall panel paint system is backed by a 25-year warranty against cracking, chalking, peeling and fading, exemplifying the confidence Butler has these buildings​​. Butler-Cote paints are not only long-lasting, they are actually energy efficient thanks to their solar reflectance - all colors having a Solar Reflectance Index of 29 or greater. No detail goes without thought on a Butler Building.

5. Sophisticated Design and Customization Options

One of the standout features of Butler buildings is their sophisticated design and customization options. They offer advanced 3D design capabilities, allowing for tailored construction solutions. The large range of design options includes various colors, textures (such as Butler's TextureWall), and finishes, as well as customizable floor plans. This flexibility extends to the interior as well, with numerous accessories to enhance functionality and aesthetics​​.

6. Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

Energy efficiency is another significant advantage of Butler buildings. Innovative systems like the SunLite Strip, a daylight system which has been proven to lower lighting expenses by up to 70%, and the MR-24 roof system, the industry's first and finest standing seam roof which is weather-tight and greatly reduces energy costs. These buildings are designed to be energy-efficient, with advanced insulation in their wall and roofing systems that lower energy consumption to reduce energy bills. Cost-savings aside, this is a big plus for environmentally-conscious businesses​​.

7. Advanced Roofing System and Energy-Efficient Features

In terms of roofing technology, Butler's MR-24 roof system is the industry's creme de la creme. MR-24 is known for its exceptional weather tightness and adaptability for enhanced energy efficiency. This roofing system features a 360-degree Pittsburg double-lock seam for unrivaled weather protection. This seam is similar to what you'd find on a Coke can. The MR-24's design also includes clever movable clips to accommodate roof movements due to temperature changes, enhancing the overall energy efficiency and durability.
