Why Choose General Steel for Your Shop Building?

Our Buildings Offer Unmatched Advantages

General Steel is the industry leader in providing metal workshop buildings. Home workshops are among the most popular buildings we sell. We’ve become the industry’s leading choice because General Steel offers uncompromising quality and service, and our steel buildings provide considerable cost-saving advantages in comparison to conventional wood, stone, or other traditional types of construction.

Prefab Building Systems versus Other Construction Methods

The construction method you choose is one of the biggest factors impacting your new shop budget. General Steel buildings reduce the factors associated with complicated traditional construction projects like pole barns that end up becoming costly lengthy projects. A new workshop building from General Steel is, technically-speaking, a pre-engineered steel building, which means that all components are designed, engineered, and prefabricated in a controlled environment to ensure that all structural supports, walls panels, roof panels, and additional custom accessories are specifically designed and pre-drilled to ensure proper fit and alignment when they arrive to you ready to be assembled.

A General Steel building will be built for the snow load, wind force, and seismic activity of the place you call home. Your workshop building is engineered to keep you comfortable and safe and to guard your prized home workshop against the elements.
