What We Need for Accurate Steel Building Prices
Some of our customers are looking for simple metal building prices while others need us to estimate other parts of the project as well. Lets take a look at what you need to know to price a building accurately and what you should be thinking about long term to plan your project effectively.
What You Need to Know:
Where: Letting us know where you plan on building is essential to providing an accurate building estimate. All we need is your zip code, but that tells us everything in terms of proper loads for snow, wind and seismic conditions. We make sure it’s engineered right, but keep in mind these factors do influence your final cost.
Size: Determining the exact or at least approximate size you need is the most important part of pricing a building. To assist you in deciding what size you need, we’ve provided typical sizes for some of our most popular steel building kits below.
Typical Sizes by Building Type
What You Need to Think About:
How Are You Going to Build It? Many of our smaller buildings are do-it-yourself friendly while others require the skills of steel building contractors. Either way, through our network of preferred contractors, we can price out any range of construction services you need and provide you with an estimate at any time during the process.
When Do You Plan on Building? There are several important factors that are directly correlated to timing. A few you should pay attention to are outlined below.
Depending on where you live, there may be an optimal time to commence construction.
Price of Steel:
As a commodity, the cost of metal buildings is heavily dependent on the global pricing behavior of steel. Therefore, when you decide to lock your price is directly correlated to your final building price. See our annual steel prices forecast for more information.
The best way to save money on your metal building is not by going with an inferior product, it’s by choosing the company with the most buying power. Make sure to ask you Project consultant if General Steel is running a sale on the size you’re looking for!
