Cons of Shipping Container Homes
- Most factory-built shipping container homes are not always effective in recycling. Container homes that are built from one time used shipping containers that have only had a single trip, tend to be good in shape, without dents or rust. They make a nice building instead of the containers that have gone out of service or damaged from years of use.
- Although shipping containers are strong but could have structural issues. Few containers are very strong at the corners but their roof is not that strong. If there is snow, you need to build another roof over it. The corrugated steel walls are crucial to the strength of the structure. This means if you cut out a large window or door opening, it needs new reinforcement.
