steel building sales and construction
nationalsteelbuildingconstruct… HOW TO BUY A STEEL BUILDING IN COLORADOYou've finally decided that you need a new building in Colorado. Maybe you need a new office building as your business expands. Or maybe you really have to have that indoor riding arena for your horses. Or your Colorado company needs to expand with a new manufacturing facility. Maybe you just want a nice outbuilding or barn for storage and other projects.You've heard that steel buildings are a great option for Colorado Climates. You've heard that steel building construction can save you time and money, that metal buildings go up fast, and since they are pre-engineered, there are no surprises. They come in on budget, and are expertly engineered to meet the local building codes so the building permitting process is easy. And you can make all the design decisions yourself. But where to start? It's not as complicated as you think.Here are some steel building buying tips that will make you feel like a pro builder.DO PERMIT RESEARCHDo call your local building department and explain that you would like to build a pre engineered steel building on your lot and give them the location. Ask whether the Colorado local building codes allow for pre-engineered steel buildings. If they do, ask what the applicable metal building codes are. Remember to ask about “setbacks” and other code requirements that may prohibit the use of prefab metal buildings or any building for that matter on a given lot.GET THE BUILDING DESIGNED FOR YOUR AREADon't make the mistake of thinking that Colorado building codes are standard. Many times the builder or steel buildings supplier will give code information based on the standards in the metal building industry. However, there are no standard steel building codes that will satisfy building code requirements across the board. A reputable steel building supplier will make sure that the building price they quote incorporates all applicable Colorado building codes.RESEARCH YOUR STEEL BUILDING SUPPLIERDo check the steel buildings supplier with the Colorado Better Business Bureau and ask for current references.GET A CUSTOM STEEL BUILDING QUOTEDon't be afraid to talk in depth with your steel building supplier. Describe in detail what you want the building for, whether it is for a horse barn, a church, a warehouse, or manufacturing plant. Make sure the supplier understands exactly what the final use of the building will be. The building use will influence many design decisions and ultimately the final price.FINALIZE YOUR BUILDING PLANSDo know exactly what you want before you order. Decide the dimensions of the building you want to build, the width, length, and height of the building. Where do you want the doors and windows? What color do you want for the walls, roof, and trim? Are there other steel building accessories you would like, such as skylights, cupolas, gutters, and downspouts? Do you need insulation for the building? Don't assume that doors and windows, gutters and downspouts are included. Many times the framed openings for doors and windows are included, but not the doors and windows themselves, which are additional.STEEL BUILDING OPTIONSDo consider your options for the roof. Do you want a standing seam roof or the screw down roofing system? A screw down roofing panel is the most commonly used panel for metal buildings roofing, and if properly installed will give you many years of weather tightness.STEEL BUILDING ROOFSWhat about roof pitch? Roof pitch describes the steepness of the roof slope. The standard roof pitch on pre-engineered steel buildings is 1:12. This is the most economical in terms of heating and cooling. Because the structural steel frames are strong enough to support the roof, in most cases a steeper pitch is not required, although you may want a steeper pitch for aesthetic reasons, for example, if you are building a church, or you like the more traditional look of a steeper pitch.STEEL BUILDING COLORSWhat about color? Many steel buildings have roofs of Galvalume steel, which is a silvery color, and may qualify for Energy Credit under the Federal Tax Code. Some metal building companies have a color option for the roof, which allows you to choose from an array of energy efficient siliconized polyester coating steel buildings colors that will save you even more on energy costs.CUSTOM FEATURESDo you like the look of stucco, stone, or brick? If you do, make sure the steel buildings supplier can provide pre-cast panels or other materials that will give the look of wood, stone, or brick to harmonize with pre-existing construction, and to satisfy the local codes, which, in some areas of Colorado do not allow for standard metal siding.GETTING THE RIGHT BUILDINGDo make sure you are comparing identical buildings when comparing pricing. If the price from one steel building supplier seems markedly lower, take a closer look – you may find that what they are offering at the lower price is cutting corners and you will get an inferior building in the end.And don't be fooled, not all metal buildings are the same.National Steel Building Construction has been a Colorado leader in pre-engineered steel buildings for more than 20 years, supplying durable high quality pre-engineered steel buildings for commercial, industrial, agricultural and residential applications 100% made in the USA.To learn more about National Steel Building Construction call us toll free at 1 844 617-4499BENEFITS OF STEEL BUILDINGS FOR COLORADOOver the years, steel buildings have become popular not only in the commercial and industrial sector; steel buildings are nowadays being used in the Colorado community for building houses as well.
