Are Steel Buildings as Strong as Traditional Wood Buildings?

So you are in need of a building to place on your property and you are torn over whether or not to go for building a wood building or whether you should invest in a steel building. This can be a very good question since this is a large investment and you want it to last for a very long time. You aren't sure which of the two are stronger, which will be easier to maintain, or which will be more practical.
