How much does a prefab metal building cost? That’s often the first question in any customer’s mind, and for good reason. These structures are touted for their tremendous savings, but because they’re so customizable, it’s difficult to post figures online.
From its first day to its last, your prefab metal structure will help you save. How much? That depends on your design, but we’ve got 20 years of experience ready to help you trim the fat. It’s easy when you’re building with metal. We’ll show you why it’s your best financial option.
Save Big During Metal Construction
Prefab metal buildings can go up in record time. In fact, many customers choose metal solely because of their speedy construction periods. The faster a building goes up, the sooner you can use it to increase your profits. The shorter construction time also helps you save in other ways.
At Peak Steel Buildings, all of our structures are made with 100-percent red-iron steel beams. These are very simple to use, making construction much easier and faster than when using alternative building materials, like brick. With the right equipment, it may only take two or three people a matter of days to complete your metal construction. This is why so many of our clients simply order materials and put them up on their own, resulting in massive savings.
What about Steel Building Installation?
For those customers who want to hire a professional team, Peak Steel Buildings partners with top-tier contractors and construction companies throughout the United States. You can find your own team, or we’ll connect you with the right people. One of the biggest steel building differences is the size of the construction crew needs.
When working with metal buildings, you need fewer workers than when you deal with traditional construction materials. Why? With prefab buildings, much of the construction is performed for you in our protected indoor environment.
Once delivered to your site, you simply piece together the structure and get to work on the interior. This simple process cuts back on one of the biggest budget draws you’ll face during construction too – postponements due to bad weather. We secure our steel buildings easily on the outside, allowing for work indoors to stay on schedule. The resulting savings from labor, insurance, and construction loan interest really adds up!
Extended Savings Throughout a Steel Building’s Use
At Peak Steel Buildings, we manufacture our buildings with care. Our structures enjoy energy efficiency rates capable of containing your utility costs throughout the life of your building. We have a number of insulation, door and window options you can select for even more impressive results.
Buildings made of red-iron steel are also impervious to problems responsible for major damage to traditional structures. Termites are a huge problem throughout Georgia, but they don’t eat through steel. Likewise, other pests like carpenter ants aren’t an issue. Pest control rates are lower for metal structures simply because your needs aren’t as great, and you never have to worry about repairing pest-related damage.
Wind and rain wreak havoc on wooden structures, especially in the Southern states. The hot, humid summers here lead to rot and mold growth, expensive problems you’ll need an experts’ help to mediate. These aren’t a worry when you build with steel. Metal structures can even stand up to lightning and fire. These benefits combine to drive down insurance rates, a benefit you’ll enjoy the entire time you use your structure.
Finally, maintenance of these buildings is virtually nil. The roof on your structure is guaranteed for 25 years through Peak Steel Buildings. Your paint is expected to last at least that long. What maintenance is needed for a wooden structure? Painting or staining, multiple pest treatments, yearly inspects for replacing worn or rotting boards and then some. Include the time required to manage those tasks, and you’re looking at tremendous savings in just the first 20 years you’ll be using your building.
Easy Modification and Higher Resell Value for Steel Buildings
You’ll find your prefab metal building is budget-friendly even as you make big changes to your business. These structures are among the easiest to modify. That’s good when you need more space, as well as when you sell your building to someone else.
It’s easy to customize an existing metal structure to meet new requirements. All of the benefits you enjoyed during construction come back into play. Changes take a shorter time than if you were adding on to a building made of wood or brick, and you don’t need as many people to complete the work. It’s very easy for your building to grow quickly to meet the changing demands of your business, and more importantly, for a building’s new owner to adjust the design to suit their own needs.
For these reasons – and more – metal construction will always have a financial advantage over other structures. As to how much does a prefab metal building cost?
