How long does it take to get a building?
Once the deposit is paid it will take between 4-5 weeks to be delivered to the site.
Are the buildings insulated?
We offer several types and R-values of insulation specifically designed for steel buildings that help control condensation and can also be used for climate-controlled buildings.
Are the buildings all steel?
Yes, our buildings are all steel construction. The gauge of steel for the main structural members is calculated by our engineers, considering the wind and snow loads. We also can erect a building with masonry walls. The block will have to be installed by a local masonry contractor but we can lock onto the block with our metal flashing.
