Q: Are Montainer homes made from recycled shipping containers?   

A: 100% Yes! 

 

Q: Will the Montainer Home rust out? 

A: Yes. However, it will rust much slower than mild steel because shipping containers are made of corten steel, a marine grade steel which is crossing resistant. It was developed to freeze the rusting process and will remain waterproof throughout its lifetime. The Montainer team can add a layer of rust-resistant paint and primer to add extra support. To learn more about its anti-corrosive properties you can search it on Google.
