Why Steel?

JG King lead the way exclusively building homes with steel frames. And when it comes to the structural and aesthetic gains from steel frames, we’re still pioneers.

With BlueScope Steel supporting your home, we provide straighter walls and more architectural possibilities, as well as a higher resistance to termites, fire, and anything else nature has in store.

Steel Benefits

Your steel-framed home is lighter, more durable, and more cost-effective to assemble than building with timber.


Steel frames are more resistant against flexing and warping, meaning your home stays looking like your home with straighter lines and finishes on your roof, ceilings, and walls.

Termites can’t eat steel

Termites, white ants, home-wrecking pests. Whatever you call them, they can be an absolute menace to many homes. Many timber-framed Victorian homes suffer termite damage that isn’t covered by insurance and repairs can cost well into the thousands. Just let these tiny troublemakers try and eat steel.

Fire Resistance

Steel is non-combustible and retains its shape at much higher temperatures than timber can. Cap your home with a Colorbond roof, which is standard with all JG King homes, and the risk of fire drops dramatically.

Solid Foundations

Steel can boast the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any current residential building material. This means your home and its foundations can stand up to stronger winds, fiercer storms, and even the occasional lightning strike.

50 Year Structural Warranty

A steel frame home is in it for the long haul. Building a steel frame home is an investment for the future. We at JG King back it up with a 50 year structural guarantee* that your home stands the test of time.

100% Recyclable

Our steel frame homes are made from 100% recyclable BlueScope steel, surpassing best environmental practices. Some timber frames are treated against pests and hazards with toxic chemicals--steel needs none of that.

100% Australian made and owned

All of our steel frames are manufactured at our on factory, Steel Frame Solutions, in Ballarat. Our materials are produced by TrueCore Steel, a wholly Australian BlueScope Steel product.
