American Western Steel was very competitive with their prices. They worked with our budget. They also took care of everything from getting all the permits required, pouring the concrete to erecting my 40X50 Shop. American Western Steel finished the job on the time schedule, with out having any changes. I just had to leave a review for them, because they did such a great job and made sure we were happy.

Common Metal Building Questions

How can you prepare to purchase a steel metal building?

If you have an idea of what you need and where to put it, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the install. Firstly, call your local county officials and talk with the zoning officers. You can check for important things like flood plains, specified setbacks, or variances. If there are load requirements, you can learn those as well. Secondly, contact your homeowner’s association to see if any restrictions or limitations apply. There may be written rules concerning the size or color of the structure. Thirdly, lock down some personal figures in terms of your budget, size of building needed, amount of time you can allow for construction, and condition of the land being affected. Finally, you can reach out to Houston Steel Building Contractors and get specific details on steel prices, as well as answers to any questions you may have.

Are steel buildings really different from one another?

It can be tempting to punch in a dimension on a website; and go with the cheapest cost. But there are actually large varieties in quality and specifics with steel buildings. Something as simple as paint quality can make all the difference in the world. If the coating system is not guaranteed or reputable, it can cost you over time. Some companies use inferior parts, including zinc fasteners, 29-gauge wall panels, and often without a warranty.  This may all be cheaper, but it will not last, and may cost you much more to repair later! When you search Metal Buildings Houston, you will see many options. Our company uses high quality materials and attaches paint and structural warranties.  Important choices, like pre-galvanized framing and rust proof fasteners, along with factored welding, are signs of a quality product.

Is it okay to go with the cheapest building I can find?

If you read the above paragraph, then you know the answer to that.  Price can be deceptive; along with weight and steel thickness. These numbers look good on paper, but they don’t mean the quality is worth your hard earned investment. There are a good many ways to reduce the cost of a quality building, but giving in on quality materials or design is not the right way to save. Sometimes the delivered price looks great, but the on-site costs can quickly change the bill. In some cases, welders have to be hired, missing parts have to be replaced, or other time consuming and cost raising issues may ruin the experience.

How do I know the steel will last?

Not all steel is the same. And even if steel is heavier or thicker, that doesn’t guarantee the best quality. Four elements contribute to the durability of steel: gauge, strength, spacing and rib height.  In addition, a certain level of flexibility is important to durability. This “deflection” is specially designed by engineers to adjust and hold up under a load. Our service team can inform you about the combination of elements used in our steel buildings.  Finding the right combination is key to a building that will stand for years to come.

What goes into designing a steel building?

You will not, necessarily, need an architect. Structural engineers working at steel building companies design most of the steel buildings sold today.  In other words, we can present options to you designed by engineers. If you want a variation to a standard plan, there is a good chance our specialists can incorporate that without you needing to hire an architect. If the structure has multi-levels or complex design elements, an architect may be needed.  Note: those custom designed plans are usually quite expensive. We try to accommodate your needs through our experience to eliminate that cost.  Another option is to do some online designing via web sites. These tools help you visualize what you want and can help our project managers to meet your needs quickly and completely.

How hard is it to build and install a metal building?

People with even basic knowledge of building and construction are able to put together pre-engineered metal buildings quite easily. On smaller projects, you will have little issues, if you follow the included guidelines and instructions. For projects that have a width of 80 feet or more, a professional team is highly recommended. The time saved and secure construction will easily outweigh any costs incurred.  Again, with smaller projects, instructions will include drawings, parts numbered, and extensive labeling. The tools needed will find within the scope and budget of most people.  The reality is: anyone with patience and commitment to following the steps, can construct a steel building! But if you need help, we hope you don’t hesitate to call.
