What To Expect In Buying A Steel Building And How To Get The Custom-Designed Building You Desire
1. Determine precisely what you need for your building so that you are clear about what you want. Some customers will waste their time contacting the wrong type of building manufacturer/ distributor. For example, you may be looking into adding a very cost-effective one car garage to cover your car or a carport to cover a boat. This would rule out red iron steel building manufacturer/ distributors because it’s too much.
2. Write down some of the details about your project. What size you would like, the time frame for completion, number of windows and doors, if you want insulation or no insulation keeping in mind your budget and allowance of the space.
3. Jot down a list of the questions that you want answered such as cost, time of delivery, options for payment, accessory options, requirements for off-loading, color choices.
4. Do some research on the businesses who offer the type of steel building you are seeking, you should check with the Better Business Bureau, some magazines, some friends and a few specific internet searches can really give you a lot of information without spending a great deal of time.
5. Make some phone calls to your favored list of businesses to have your initial questions answered and be prepared that these calls may lead to more ground work that needs to be done like possibly hiring a concrete company or an builder or financial arrangements.
6. After you’ve completed your homework and you’ve found a company and a representative at that company you feel you can trust, take your time to completely review your contracts. Make sure that your building design is precisely as you specified and that all the details are correct.
Be sure to keep in mind, when you find a company that has your best interest in mind, they will offer to go over all the details of your contract with you and even compare competitor’s bids with yours, line by line so that you can get an exact idea of what you are comparing. For example, one bid may seem low, and look good until you go over it with an experienced fair building adviser who may likely point out details you missed. Some people frequently miss details like how the lower bid does not include missing doors, including insulation or freight. When these items are corrected you might have actually ended up spending a lot more with the company you originally thought. When it comes to buying a steel building, educating yourself is the key to being a knowledgeable buyer and if a company has your best interest in mind they will school you even if it means losing the sale.
