When you step into the world of project costs and construction, one decision rises above all: who will you choose as your contractor?

Pre-engineered metal buildings have risen in popularity in the construction industry for their unbeatable efficiency and durability. As we dive into the world of steel structures and building systems, one truth stands tall: not all metal building contractors are made equal.

The choice of your steel building contractor can significantly impact the outcome of your project, from design to construction, and, ultimately, your overall satisfaction. It’s not just about building a structure; it’s about entrusting your vision and investment to a team that truly understands your unique needs and values.

At Premier Buildings, we believe in the power of providing a difference for our clients. This is not merely a claim but a commitment.

Your steel building project represents a substantial investment of time, money, and resources. Whether it’s a commercial space, an agricultural facility, a vibrant recreation center, a spacious garage, or any other type of building, the result will profoundly influence your professional ventures and personal aspirations.

That said, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get the lowdown on the questions you need to ASK before you take the plunge and choose the right contractor for your next steel building project.

What type of steel buildings do you sell?

Why it’s important: Asking about the types of steel buildings a contractor sells helps you determine if they can meet your specific needs. You want to work with a contractor specializing in the type of building that matches your project, ensuring they have the required expertise and experience.

The Premier Promise: At Premier Building Systems, we offer a wide range of steel buildings, including (but not limited to) agricultural buildings, industrial warehouses, commercial structures, storage facilities, and even community powerhouses such as churches and recreation centers. Our steel building solutions are versatile and cater to various purposes.

How versatile is your framing system?

Why it’s important: The versatility of the framing system is crucial because it directly impacts the design flexibility and functionality of your steel building. You want a framing system that can adapt to your project’s unique requirements and provide your desired architectural features.

The Premier Promise: Our framing system is highly versatile and adaptable to meet your specific needs. Whether you require a clear-span design for maximum interior space or have unique architectural requirements such as energy efficiency, sustainability, accessibility, or personal aesthetics, our custom framing system can accommodate various designs and configurations.

Can I customize my metal building?

Why it’s important: Customization is vital for ensuring your steel building suits your individual preferences and needs. Asking this question helps you confirm that the contractor can tailor the building to meet your specific design, color, and functionality requirements.

The Premier Promise: We understand that each client has unique needs. We offer a high degree of customization for your metal buildings. You can choose from a wide selection of colors, roofing styles, insulation options, doors, and windows to ensure your steel building suits your preferences and requirements.

What warranties do your metal buildings carry?

Why it’s important: Warranties assure the quality and durability of your steel building. Understanding the warranty details ensures you are protected in case of unforeseen issues or defects in materials or workmanship.

The Premier Promise: Our commitment to your satisfaction extends well beyond the completion of your metal building project. We firmly stand behind the quality of our work, and to ensure your peace of mind, our metal buildings come with comprehensive warranties. These warranties are a testament to our confidence in our structures’ durability and reliability. We can provide specific warranty details for your project during the consultation.

What type of steel sheathing do you use?

Why it’s important: The type of steel sheathing used in your building affects its resilience and weather resistance. Knowing the specifics about the sheathing allows you to assess the building’s durability and suitability for your location and long-term use.

The Premier Promise: We use high-quality steel sheathing that offers durability and protection. The exact type can vary based on the project and your requirements, but we will work closely with you to select the appropriate sheathing for your steel building.

Do your prefab metal buildings include any special features?

Why it’s important: Special features can enhance the functionality and energy efficiency of your steel building. Inquiring about this helps assess whether the contractor can provide the additional elements you need, making your building more versatile and cost-effective.

The Premier Promise: Our prefab metal buildings can include various special features such as insulation, energy-efficient options, ventilation systems, and more. These features can be tailored to your project to ensure it meets your needs.

What sizes are available?

Why it’s important: Understanding the available sizes is crucial to determine if the contractor can meet your project’s size requirements. You want to make sure they can provide a steel building that fits your intended purpose and space constraints.

The Premier Promise: Our steel buildings come in a wide range of sizes, from small storage units to large industrial complexes. We can accommodate a variety of dimensions to match your specific project requirements.

What are the size limitations?

Why it’s important: Size limitations can be influenced by local regulations and structural constraints. Knowing these limitations ensures that your project complies with building codes and engineering considerations, avoiding potential issues during construction.

The Premier Promise: While we offer a broad range of sizes, specific size limitations may depend on local building codes, zoning regulations, and engineering considerations. We’ll work with you to determine the maximum size that complies with all relevant requirements.

Will the building be designed for my specific use and location?

Why it’s important: Customizing a design to match your specific use and location is critical for the functionality and longevity of the building. It ensures that your steel building is structurally sound and well-suited to your unique requirements, making it a valuable investment.
