My Sales Support Specialist Was Outstanding

"As a first-time steel building purchaser, my sales support specialist was outstanding. He took the time to educate and inform me on the process, had answers to virtually all of my questions. I wish more companies had people like this interfacing and guiding their customers."

Roof Pitch 101

Choosing your building’s roof pitch can seem like a tough decision but it really comes down to just a couple of factors. If you live in an area with heavy or consistent snow, an increase in roof pitch may be a good idea. You do however need to weigh the increase in roof pitch against the fact that a higher roof pitch will increase the price of your building. For most of our customers, a 1:12 roof pitch is the best choice for their building..

Low Roof Pitch Facts

  • 1:12 bears as much snow weight as 6:12
  • 1:12 is the most popular roof pitch

High Roof Pitch Facts

  • Higher Roof Pitch = Higher Cost
  • Higher pitch helps snow slide off

How Does My Locale Influence the Price?

Our buildings are engineered with your location in mind. Whether you live in an area like Miami with high wind speeds or Montana with its high snow loads or California with seismic activity, your building will be designed to accommodate the atmospheric conditions common in your area. Providing us with your zip code allows us to zero in on these factors and engineer accordingly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does intended use have to do with price?

Buildings for that are high occupancy (churches, gymnasiums) or buildings that are essential occupancy (ammo storage, schools, government buildings) require a different level of engineering. Another example would be a building that needs to be loaded for an overhead crane, this would also require more engineering.

Do you deliver to my state?

Yes! We deliver to all 50 states. We’ve even delivered our buildings to Russia, Mexico, Turkey, Afghanistan and Africa among other international destinations.

What is the most important cost factor in building pricing?

As a commodity, steel is susceptible to dramatic price swings. If the price of steel increases, your building price will too. Luckily we allow you to lock your price with just a small deposit.

What happens after I receive my quote?

Our team will work with you to make sure we’ve covered all the details associated with your project and provide you with a formal line item proposal.

Do you provide construction services?

Yes! We have the largest network of qualified metal building contractors in the industry. We can provide you with a quote for concrete and erection or other construction services you may need at the time of your formal proposal.
