Buying Your Prefabricated Steel Building – A Guide For First-Time Buyers

Steel buildings are simple in their concept and design, but there still are several steps to purchasing one. If you’re looking to buy a prefabricated steel building for the first time, here’s what you can expect the process to look like.

Steps to Buying a Prefabricated Steel Building

We break down exactly how you can get started with your own custom steel building. 

Step 1: Contact Prefabricated Steel Building Installer

Contacting a steel building installer should be the first step, as they can guide you through the entire process and provide valuable advice. Because you may not know exactly what type of steel building to get at this stage, look for a company that offers many different steel buildings and can assist with custom orders.

To speak with someone about steel buildings, call us at SteelCo Buildings. We provide prefabricated steel buildings for churches, agricultural operations, airports, warehouses, mini-storage, and many other uses, and we can always design a custom building if necessary.

Step 2: Determine the Purpose of the Building

First you will want to determine the precise purpose of the prefabricated steel building. You undoubtedly have a general idea of what it’ll be used for, but now is the time to get specific about the details. If you’re planning a church, how many people does it need to hold? If you’re building a storage space, what exactly will be stored in it?

Your answers to questions like these will influence the size, shape and features that are needed. The person you speak to will be able to help provide recommendations based on your answers.

Step 3: Calculate the Cost of the Building

Once all the necessary specifics of your prefabricated steel building are known, it’s time to calculate the cost of the project. These structures are much more affordable than traditionally built properties, but you still need to budget for the building.

At this point, you may also consider some optional features or items depending on your budget. First establish the “must-haves” and then talk to your steel building consultant about optional features that may fit within your budget.

Step 4: Sign the Contract and Construct

The final phase is to sign the contract and coordinate delivery of the prefabricated steel building. Your onsite contractor should be involved to ensure all goes smoothly at the building site when your steel building is delivered.
