Do you feel that your home is running out of space? Over the years, you’ve probably accumulated a lot of stuff that you can’t bring yourself to throw away. That’s understandable if they hold a lot of sentimental value. After all, each of these items helps you remember the beautiful experiences you’ve had in the past. That’s why you keep them around – so that you can look at them reminisce about days gone by. But if they get in your way and clutter up your home, that’s a problem. So, what can you do? Instead of forcing yourself to get rid of them, why not have a place to keep all your memories? A steel storage unit can hold all your important possessions and free up much-needed space. Here’s what you can look forward to when you get one of your own.
Short Construction Time
The time it takes to construct these structures is very short. Once most of the parts have been assembled, all that is left is for the structure to be erected. That’s because your steel building kit is prefabricated and easy to construct.
Low Cost to Build
Another benefit of a prefabricated building kit is the cost. Since it’s so easy to build, you may find that you’d want to do in yourself. All you need to do is follow the instructions and bolt all the pieces together. You don’t need to hire expensive construction teams, and you’ll have a fun weekend project to work on.
Easy to Expand
As you put more and more stuff in storage, there may come a time when you may need more space. When that happens, it will be easy to dismantle one of the side panels and extend the building. You wouldn’t be able to do this if you had a building made from wood or concrete.
Steel is a very durable material and will last a long time. No matter the weather conditions, the integrity of the building will be solid. Whether your storage unit is in an area prone to heavy snow or strong winds, you can be sure that it will hold up even in the most adverse conditions.
Better Insurance Premiums
Thanks to the properties of steel, insurance companies are more likely to offer better insurance coverage conditions. Those with steel buildings may be able to save up to 40% on insurance premiums.
Steel buildings are made with precision. All the parts will fit together a jigsaw puzzle, leaving no misaligned edges and corners. It is also possible to customize the building to suit your and style preferences you may have. If you want, they can be painted with any color you choose. Just because it’s a simple storage unit, it doesn’t mean that you can’t add a little style and personalization to it.
In addition to standing up to harsh weather condition, steel also doesn’t need a lot of upkeep. Wood will rot and decay if not maintained. Concrete can develop cracks over time. Since a storage unit will be used primarily for keeping your stuff safe, you won’t always be around to take care of building maintenance. This makes steel the ideal choice because it’s practically maintenance free.
Keep your memories safe and close by. A steel storage unit will do just that. Our prefabricated building kits will protect your precious belongings so you can enjoy more space in your home.

When it comes to finally building your dream workshop, getting the storage you need or a garage to protect your vehicles, it’s all about the material. Should you go with a wood structure or a steel building?
Well, we all know steel is more durable but considering material is about more than durability. What will it take to actually build that new structure?
Choosing a Steel Building Pros structure means a more convenient, time-saving and cost-effective build than what you’ll get with a wooden one.
Building with Wood
When building a traditional wooden shed, barn or garage there’s a long process, lots of people and red tape involved.
To start, you must obtain permits and get plans. Once that’s approved, comes the task of pouring the foundation, acquiring and transporting the loads of building material to your property, storing the lumber and cutting it to specifications. Finally, you’ll need to build from the ground up starting with framing and you may need lifts, cranes and other equipment to finish the roofing and walls.
A new wooden barn with the same footprint as one of our steel buildings is rarely done without hiring contractors and subcontractors. Of course extra care must be taken to protect lumber from the elements during what can often be a months-long construction process.
Don’t get us wrong, the finished product of a finely crafted wooden garage or barn can look great, but there’s a lot of time and money involved. Time most people would rather spend enjoying their hobbies and weekends.
Building with Steel
When "building" a steel building from Steel Building Pros, there is actually very little building involved. Our plans are all prefabricated based on standard specifications and we ship your building directly from the factory to your site in easy-to-assemble pieces.
Thanks to our easy nut-and-bolt system, most of our customers can put up their new building without any heavy equipment! Additionally, most of the assembly work is done on the ground, saving thousands of dollars that would otherwise be spent on equipment or construction crews.
The foundation of a steel building is less specific, too. If you want to install your building on gravel or dirt, you can use rebar. If you want to install your building on cement or concrete pads or footers, you can use concrete screws.
ProTip - You can move your steel building too! If you wish to relocate your building, you can disassemble it and load it onto a trailer for transport.
If you don’t want to set up your building, no problem. Steel Building Pros maintains relationships with reputable contractors who can help you set up your steel building without cutting corners.
We know there is a lot to consider when deciding on a new building for your property. We’re here to help! Contact our team to learn more about our building models, personalization options, timelines and more!
In the construction industry, steel remains one of the most commonly used materials around the world. Its durability and resistance to corrosion make it ideal for buildings such as workshops, garages & storage facilities.
Workshops of old, cheap wood start to decay in a few years. They also attract insects, termites, and other pests. Compare that to a modern workshop made from steel. It results in a structure that’s unaffected by weather or time.
If you’re in the market for a metal workshop building, here’s what your investment will get:
Simple designs result in faster construction times and reduced costs.
The strength of steel allows for simple designs that can support the structure. The components are prefabricated on the assembly line and can be put together on-site. This reduces the overall material costs of the building. Labor cost is another area where a prefabricated building shines. Since all the parts are made to fit each other, the entire project can be finished quickly. As a result, less time is needed to finish the building and less money needed for labor.
Adaptable & Durable structures
Just because they’re prefabricated, doesn’t mean the designs are set in stone. Gauge variations, different finishes, windows, and doors can be added to the building to suit the climate conditions of your area.
Steel frames can keep a small structure standing even in the face of a flood or hurricane. Different coatings can protect the structure from extreme moisture and sun exposure. The roof design guides excess rainwater away from the workshop. This reduces the chance of corrosion and damage to whatever is inside.
Customize the workshop for the present and the future.
A steel workshop is designed according to your specific needs. If you need a large entrance it can be integrated into the design. If unobstructed floor space is what you’re looking for, that’s available as well.
As your needs change in the future, the building can also be updated. You can expand the size of your workshop at any point without having to replace the building as a whole. You can increase the usable space by extending the walls or adding another floor. You can even integrate faux brick, wood siding or stone facades for a more appealing look.
Long-lasting with minimal maintenance needs.
Steel workshops only need limited maintenance while providing long-term durability. In fact, they can be cleaned with nothing more than soap and water. Steel resists corrosion and long-term wear and tear. It can also withstand the forces of nature. Strong winds and heavy rain and snow won't be a problem for the building.
These benefits also bring reduced property insurance costs and maintenance needs. With those savings, you'll be getting another workshop or expand your current one soon.
As with any investment, you want there to be good returns. With a metal workshop building, your returns come in the form of endurance, convenience and peace of mind. The people at Steel Building Pros are the experts at making sure you get the right assets. With a comprehensive warranty and excellent customer support, you know they’re looking out for your best interest. Give them a call today.
Having a dedicated place to practice a hobby is a privilege few people have. If you’re the creative type, sometimes you just need a space where you can let ideas flow. A place where you’re free to work on your craft. If that seems like a good idea, a prefabricated workshop may be just what you need.
Having an exclusive workshop for your creative endeavors may seem like a luxury, but it’s actually very practical. Because your house may have limited space, it can be difficult to tackle larger projects. You have to shuffle furniture around and put everything back when you’re done. Even if big projects aren’t your thing, a place free of distractions always works better. It can also be a place to display your works once you’re finished, without taking up more space inside the house. It’s a Customized Workshop
Although it’s prefabricated, there are many options for customization. The constructed building kit can be as large or small as you need. Do you need more than one room inside? Sure. Perhaps you’re looking for an open floor plan with no obstructions. That can be arranged. Additionally, if you want to extend your workshop building in the future, you can do so without tearing the whole thing apart.
Talk to our designers and discuss what you want out of the workshop. They will offer the best suggestions to accommodate your needs. Then, it’s just a matter of waiting for the kit to arrive and putting the parts together.
Easy to Install
The great thing about a prefabricated building kit is that it’s easy to construct. All the parts are made to fit together without issue. You don’t even need a team of expensive contractors to get your workshop standing (though that’s still an option). You can set it up yourself without needing special tools and equipment. The entire kit uses the same nuts and bolts, so it’s simple enough to put everything together. If you’re a person who enjoys DIY projects, then this is definitely something for you!
Made of Durable Steel
If you’re going to have an area to work on something fun, it has to be safe and long-lasting. This is especially true if the place will also be used to store and display your work. A workshop made of steel will withstand the harshest weather conditions and remain standing for years. They’re made to comply with every state’s wind and load requirements. You’ll always have somewhere to work whenever you feel like it.
Here’s another benefit of being made of steel. It will stand the test of time, but what about everyday use? You’ll be happy to know that a steel building doesn’t require any special maintenance. Unlike other materials, steel doesn’t need constant upkeep against rot and decay. Also, it will not attract pests looking to make the place their new home.
Here’s an example:
If you enjoy woodworking, there may be a time when you’ll use salvaged wood for a project. But that wood can already be infested by termites. If your workshop is also made of wood, then your place can get infected too. If you had a steel workshop instead, that won’t even be a concern. You still have to clean up when you’re done working, but there’s no need to worry about the structure itself.
If you’re serious with your hobby, then take it to the next level! Get yourself a workshop building as a place to further master your craft. Steel Building Pros can help you pick out a model and customize it to fit your needs. Get in touch with them today!
If you own a fleet of cars or you run a business that does, then you already know that parking is a major problem. If you’re on a property that has no indoor storage for vehicles, you may want to consider getting a steel building garage. And if you are running a business that operates many cars, then it’s even more important that you protect your investments. A strong roof over them is a good step to make sure that your vehicles are protected and ready for use anytime. Here are a few reasons to have one built right now.
More than enough space for any vehicle
Regardless of the number of cars you have, a steel garage can be designed to meet your requirements. Perhaps it’s not just cars that you’ll be storing. If you need a place to keep large trucks or heavy equipment, then this type of building will be just right for you. Large entrances and the unobstructed floor space will make it easy to park any vehicle.
Protection against the elements
A steel garage can withstand the high winds & heavy snowloads. Compared to those built with wood, a steel building will hold up better against strong winds and heavy snow. No matter where you are in the United States, these structures meet and exceed all local and state wind / load requirements. You can rest assured that during a big storm, your cars will be kept from harm’s way.
Long lasting and hassle-free
Any building has to last a long time. It has to endure years and years of use without causing you to worry. If the garage was made of wood, you might wake up one morning to find out that the walls have been infested by insects and termites. Rot and decay can also be a concern in the future.
This is one more reason why a steel garage is so appealing. Once it’s built you almost never have to worry about it. It won’t get infested by pests and it does not decay over time. These buildings are made with ease of ownership in mind. They’re maintenance free, so all you have to worry about is which car you want to park inside.
Better insurance options
Once the garage is constructed, it’s almost certain that you will have it insured. After all, there’s always a chance that something may go wrong in the future. It’s a good idea to cover your bases.
Now, if your garage is made of wood, you can be sure that the terms you’ll be getting will not be the best. However, if they are made of steel, insurance companies will be more likely to offer better insurance options. That’s because they know that a steel garage building reduces the likelihood of things like fire or theft occurring.
These are just a few of that benefits you can get with a steel building. Whether it’s a garage, warehouse or even a barn,Steel Building Proscan walk you through which model is right for you. Our friendly customer support team will assist you with any questions you may have. Give us a call today!

"In 2014 I purchased a steel garage from the competition which was smaller than what Steel Buildings Pros offered. Uncomfortable with the garage I bought and had delivered, I began negotiations with SBP. They got back to me with answers to all my questions. When all was said and done, I purchased their garage. Delivery was on schedule and the crew sent to do the installation was supurb. They worked thru adverse weather conditions and in fact I had to insist they stop to take their lunch! I love this garage I purchased and I still have the competitions sitting on pallets. I have pictures from start to finish will be glad to share the photos with a potential customer."

Most famers have become used to having wooden livestock houses on their lands. Actually, it’s one of the most familiar sights on a farm. This might be because wood is the traditional building material. It is also perceived as cheaper than other options. However, do wooden livestock houses really cost less than their steel counterparts?
The use of steel buildings for livestock houses has gained popularity. It getting more common to see them used for storage and there’s no reason they can’t be used for livestock as well. If you’re not convinced, here are a few myths about wooden farm buildings, and why steel is the better choice.
Steel costs less overall
Some claim that a wooden livestock house will cost less. According to them, by using wood instead of steel, they are saving money. What they’re forgetting is that the costs of having a building is not only what you pay upfront. There’s also the ongoing maintenance to consider and this is depends on the material used.
For example: with a wooden building, you will have to constantly manage the insects and pest that may be eating into the wood. There may be need to replace falling walls and ceilings every so often. However, if you choose to go with steel, this is not going to be necessary. A steel livestock building will be s made of sturdy material that cannot be infested by insects and that will not rot. It may seem like you’re spending more upfront, but since it’s practically maintenance free, you’re actually saving money.
You’ll have all the space you need.
Every farm owner must maximize the space available to them. When you use wood to build, floor space can be an issue. Pole and columns need to be placed inside the structure in order to support its weight. This can take up some of the valuable space, which could have been put to better use.
This is not an issue with a steel building. It can be built in way that there are no columns taking up space inside the structure. You’ll have the maximum available area, with no need to plan around columns. And if you ever need even more space in the future, the building can easily be expanded.
A steel livestock house can add value to the farmland.
You may not be interested in selling your land, but it’s always a good idea to make it as valuable as possible. The types of structure you have on the land will greatly influence its value. If you have an old wooden livestock house, it can be viewed as become a burden. No one wants to take on a building you have to constantly repair. If you were to appraise the property, a battered, rotting building will hurt the assessment.
On the other hand, a steel building livestock houses will be viewed as a plus. There’s no need to worry about safety since steel does not decay over time. It will remain standing for decade without any issue and ready for whatever use you may have. It adds not just appraisal value, but also practical and useful value.
If it’s time to upgrade your livestock house, the choice is clear. A steel building will meet all your needs without the disadvantages of wood. Check out the different models that Steel Building Pros have to offer to find the perfect one for you.
