Contact us to setup a consultation appointment when you are in the process of buying land.  Some subdivisions are limiting builders so if you buy in a particular subdivision your only choice may be to use a specified builder.

If you have already purchased your land, there are builder restrictions in your subdvision, and you would like an ICF home, talk with your builder about the option of sub-contracting with us to build the ICF walls and then your builder can complete your home.

Metal Buildings

Carter Construction is a Star Metal Building Dealer for the North Central Florida area.  In addition to building homes, we can construct metal buildings for a variety of purposes, including a storage building, workshop or barn to compliment your new home.  In fact, sophisticated building systems can readily incorporate glass, wood, stucco, brick and stone to provide versatile structures that have dramatic effects, or blend with their surroundings. This versatility creates contemporary structures, ideally suited to project the right image.

Carter Construction was recently chosen as the general contractor to build a new 10,000 SF building for locally owned company, Inspired Energy in Newberry Florida.

Metal buildings can be used for a variety of purposes and industries:  Government, Schools, Agriculture, Healthcare, Auto Dealerships, Churches, Commercial, Aviation, Maintenance, Shopping Centers, Self-Storage, Recreational and so much more!

Star's Metal Buildings meet the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) requirements for Green Building.  Their manufacturing companies are strategically located throughout the United States, maximizing the amount of material manufactured within a 500 miles radius of most points in the U.S.  Here's a little more information on Green Construction.

Green Building Construction
Metal roof and wall panels consist of a minimum of 25 percent post-consumer recycled material. Our structural members can contain 30 to 50 percent or higher post-consumer recycled material. By using Star’s insulated metal panels, you can often reduce the amount of structural support needed for a building envelope due to the strength of the insulated metal panels versus single skin systems.

Green Building Renovation
Star’s NuRoof® Retrofit Roofing System is the answer. NuRoof® is a light-gauge framing system oftentimes utilizing our metal roof panels, which helps increase the thermal efficiency of a building, offers a sloped roof system to enhance the aesthetics of a building and improve water runoff, and is designed to meet wind load requirements. A 2007 USCOE technical bulletin points out that 7 to 10 percent of U.S. landfill space has gone to roofing waste over the last 40 years. Since NuRoof typically goes right over an existing roof without removing all of it, this impact is minimized.

Green Building Operations
Star offers cool roofing colors for all of their metal roof panels. When used on an appropriate building and site, a cool roof can reduce energy consumption, providing significant cost savings in many parts of the country while helping to mitigate urban heat islands. Metal roofs also work well for rainwater harvesting.

Insulated metal panels provide effective insulation systems for buildings and have long-term impacts on the environment due to their ability to reduce energy use. Depending on the application IMPs can provide significant HVAC energy cost savings on your bill over traditional systems. Also, the lower peak heating and cooling loads experienced when using insulated panel systems can significantly reduce the required capacity of the HVAC system, resulting in up-front cost savings by utilizing smaller equipment.

Green Building Maintenance
Star metal roof and wall panels allow owners low maintenance costs due to the durability of their products. According to the AISI, metal roofs last between 40 and 60 years. Properly designed metal roofs will also withstand strong winds and snow loads. The strength of Star's insulated metal panels is beneficial as they are also fire, wind, hail, water, insect and rodent resistant.

Green Building Demolition
Star’s metal roof and wall panels, structural members and other accessories composed of metal are virtually 100 percent recyclable when removed from a building, as opposed to many conventional, non-metal construction materials, which are taken to landfills. According to the American Iron and Steel Institute, steel is the most recycled material in North America, with an annual average recycling rate of 70 percent. Furthermore, new steel made with recycled material uses as little as 26 percent of the amount of energy required to manufacture steel from iron and other naturally extracted materials.
