All About Prefabricated Steel Buildings

Prefabricated Metal Building Kits

There is a lot going on in the building industry these days. In particular, it’s becoming more common to have metal buildings prefabricated and brought to site for assembly and installation. Steel building kits have also become more popular. While this type of building structure was prevalent in industrial settings, technology in the manufacturing process is making it affordable for homeowners to use in residential settings as well!

Its popularity can be attributed to ease of construction, low maintenance & affordability! This type of building does not take long to erect and it’s so easy that most of our customers elect to erect the buildings themselves. The process usually goes like this: We find a building that fits your needs, afterwards the engineers and technicians at the factory process the building & it’s design (the building site is being prepped during this time). As soon as the fabrication process is done and the foundation is ready, the kit is delivered to the site and erected.

Here’s a closer look at prefabricated buildings from the time when they produced in the factory, to when they get installed.

Structure of prefabricated metal buildings

prefabricated building kit

Thanks to how they’re made, our prefabricated metal buildings are very versatile and quick to construct. From the factory, our buildings are engineered to set up with ease. Each piece is precision cut insuring that the holes match up perfectly. The building system uses the exact same nut & bolt throughout the entire system to make setup just that much easier, gone are the days of fumbling around to match the hole with the right nut & bolt!

A lot of care is taken to ensure that the prefabricated building kit is built to specifications that meet or exceed the loads they are expected to carry. Once delivered to the construction site, they will simply be bolted together to form the structure of the building.

Erecting the building

metal building assembly

Once the parts arrive on site, it’s just a matter of bolting them together. The ease of construction is one of the biggest reasons why steel buildings are popular. As already mentioned, it’s just a matter of bolting the parts together. There’s no need for any additional welding or drilling. In fact, a lot of buyers choose to put together the structure themselves. You can treat it as a fun weekend project.

If you’re more of the hands-off type, you can hire contractors to erect the building for you. You’ll still save a lot of money because it will take fewer man-hours to finish compared to wood or concrete buildings. We have great relationships with contractors all over, if you’d prefer someone else assembling your building!

Foundations and slabsmetal building foundation

The foundations for steel building are usually made of concrete & depend on the use for your building. You could have a full pad or just a footer to set the building on, just another versatile option of our steel buildings! Metal buildings are often large and this can cause a lot of wind uplift on the building. This will ensure that they don’t get blown away during high winds. Don’t worry though, our buildings meet all local & state wind / load requirements!

More Information

If you’re interested in this type of building, it’s now easier than ever to get one for your residential, commercial or industrial property. It can be a new garage, workshop or storage shed, our buildings are versatile! To find out more, you can get in touch with us by calling 1 800 991 9251 or by heading over to our contact us page! As a leading supplier of pre-engineered steel buildings, we can help you get a better idea of the many uses and benefits of steel building kits.

Why Choose Steel Building Pros?

There's a difference between our Steel Buildings and our competitors buildings.

Many people aren't aware of the true price of a stick building, pole barn or inferior steel buildings. Over the life of the building the people who purchase those type of buildings are continuously investing time & money on maintenance & repairs. The upfront cost may end up being cheaper than ours, but we'd rather apologize once for the price of our buildings than forever over the quality. 

Our Steel Buildings are engineered to last!

Our Steel Buildings are engineered to last!

We take great pride in being the industries leading supplier of pre-engineered Steel Buildings. We're proud of this because we're proud of our products. They're tough and rugged, like a steel building should be. They're designed to meet or exceed all state wind & snow load requirements. They don't leak & they're virtually maintenance free. Look at our rugged Modified A standing tall beside the cheaper option, a stick building.
The competition can't say the same!

The competition can't say the same!

Unfortunately our competitors aren't in this business for the same reasons. Some people try to save a little money upfront and purchase a pole barn, stick building or a low quality "steel building". This photo shows how quickly that becomes a mistake. Even with continuously investing time and money into these buildings, they're still prone to collapsing due to the elements. These buildings were the best option, a hundred years ago when the technology & materials weren't available to engineer Steel Buildings.
They're designed to be maintenance free.

They're designed to be maintenance free.

We want you to be able to continue to work in your building for the next 40 years- not on them. With wind & snow loads that meet or exceed your state requirements, we can guarantee you won't run into the same problem this guy had.
They're sealed tight!

They're sealed tight!

Our buildings are designed with a 9" overlap. This definitely forms a tight seals, which prevents leaks. Not only does it strengthen your building but it also allows it to be a clear span building, allowing you to use 100% of the inside space, unlike this stick building.

Steel Building Pros - Protecting your investments

Protect your Investments the Green Way!

Looking to protect your belongings but are unsure of how to go about it? Steel buildings are an effective option in this regard, and what’s more, they are ‘green’. Typically, setting up a steel building uses environmental-friendly technology throughout the process, from transportation to the job site, to the actual assembling of the building. It allows you to save money and take advantage of increased durability, versatility, and safety that other building materials do not offer. For more information about the eco-friendliness of our steel buildings, let’s look at how steel is a great option for protecting your belongings the green way:

Lower Emissions

The steel industry in the US has been working hard to create more energy-efficient plants over the past few years. As a result, many of the steel plants don’t emit any harmful gases or toxins into the environment, particularly carbon dioxide. This not only proves beneficial for the environment, but also helps counter global warming (one of the biggest threats to our planet). Furthermore, all the water used for generating steel can be recycled after use. This makes the entire production process eco-friendly.

Longevity and Durability

When compared to wood buildings that age and rot over time, leading to damaged ceilings and buildup of mold and mildew, steel buildings are unaffected by fungi, mold, rodents, bugs, and termites, while also being more dimensionally steady. This means, steel buildings don’t splinter, rot, chink, rotate, distort, divide, or buckle, hence requiring fewer renovations as compared to timber structures. Steel buildings have a longer lifespan and offer great durability, which is why consumers are finding them more accommodating than wood based buildings.

Resource Preservation

One of the best features of steel buildings is they help preserve resources. Where a standard 2000-square foot home built from timber could require close to an acre of trees before the job is finished, steel buildings use six cars’ worth of scrap metal. This is one of the main reasons why steel construction makes more sense from an environmentally-friendly perspective, hence proving the preferable option.

Pre-Fabricated Components

We offer buildings in the form of pre-fabricated structures, which can be sent directly to the site for instant assembling, hence ensuring easy and quick installation. These buildings are eco-friendly from the start of the construction cycle. Not only do these pre-fabricated components streamline the building process, but they also reduce the need for heavy on-site machinery and extra workers, reducing overall construction costs and energy consumption.

GREEN Certification

Last, but not the least, as more states and cities have increased usage of sustainable building products for construction projects, steel grows as a popular eco-friendly and durable option. The material meets all of the industry requirements for strong buildings and also follows the guidelines of all leading green construction certifying agencies for both commercial and residential structures.

All these benefits combined make construction of a powerful, eco-friendly, and durable building that is also cost-efficient, hence protecting your belongings and assets in the greenest way possible.

5 Reasons To Choose Steel Buildings: Advice From The Pros

5 Reasons To Choose Steel Buildings: Advice From The Pros

Are you a professional starting your own business or wishing to expand your existing one? Maybe you’re a regular guy aspiring to own some property? Either way, if you’re looking to add new buildings for personal or business use, you can’t go wrong with a prefabricated steel building. Why? Because they offer many benefits that conventional wood or concrete buildings just can’t. Let’s take a look at the advantages of the steel structures from  Steel Building Pros.


1. Simplicity

The pre-engineered steel building kits are extremely easy to erect. In fact, they’re so easy to build that most of our customers do it themselves!

The models use the same nuts & bolts for the whole system, which simplifies the setup. Everything lines up perfectly, so there won’t be any surprises while fitting the different parts together. Whether it's a garage, barn or even a warehouse, your new building will be up in no time.

2. Durability

Even though  Steel Building Pros’ structures are prefabricated, they have superior strength and long lasting durability. That means you won’t have to worry about needing periodic maintenance. In fact, these buildings are practically maintenance free! They’re also weather resistant, fireproof and treated against pests. All you need is to assemble them and you can reap the benefits for years.

3. Customization

Steel Building Proshas 6 different metal building kits (the A Model, the Modified A Model, the Rigid Frame, the Steel Garages & Carports, the S Model and, finally, the Q Model). They are all completely customizable to meet your specific needs.

Another thing to take into consideration is the expandability of the buildings. As your business grows you may find yourself needing to expand its facilities. Because of how steel buildings are made, there’s no need to construct a new one. You can just purchase some additional arches (the minimum you’ll need). This will save you money and time – resources that you can put back into your wallet!

4. Economical

The practicality of steel building kits (easy to assemble, customizable, etc.) make it very cost-effective too. With hard-type buildings (like concrete, for example), you have to pay for the materials and the workforce’s cost as well. With a building kit, there are no specialized skills needed so you can just do it all yourself. This reduces your construction cost considerably. Even if you decide to hire contractors for the assembly, you can still save a significant amount because of how simple and efficient they are to construct.

We’ve already covered how the building can be expanded as needed. This is just another feature that will lower any future costs.

And let’s not forget that the buildings are 100% maintenance free. Should you need any help, these buildings still come with a long-term warranty and great customer service.

5. Reliability

Each building meets or exceeds all local & state wind/load requirements in the US. You won’t have to worry about the roof collapsing during heavy rain or snow.  Combine that with zero maintenance needs, comprehensive warranty and customer support, you can be sure that these steel buildings will remain standing for years.

You can count on Steel Building Pros to provide the best quality structures that will completely satisfy your personal or professional requirements.
