Frequently Asked Questions

We want to have drywall or another type of finish on the interior of our steel building, how can we do that?

Finishing the interior side of your metal buildings wall system is actually quite simple. Same goes for the roof. A stud wall of light gauge steel or timber studs can be placed within the wall or roof system between the girts and purlins. Another option is to have your building outfitted with girts on either 2 or 4 foot centers and then have a hat channel placed on 16” centers. A simple design change is needed for both the roof and the wall to support the additional material but it’s incredibly simple for us to do.

Are glass store front systems available?

Yes, A glass door system and store front creates a welcoming and open environment for your staff and customers. We can supply store front doors and window systems as part of your building or if you have your own contractor we can provide the required rough opening for a custom storefront. All we need to know is the details of what you are looking to achieve.

We’re building an auto shop with lifts for the vehicles, how tall does the building need to be?

The height of your building should be 12-14’ at the eaves. This will give enough room for your lift and a full size SUV.

Can we add a screw down or through fastener?

Screw down or through fastener roof systems for steel buildings do not come with nor can a weather tightness warranty be purchased. Warranties like this are not available on the screw down system because of the nature of the product. Rust through perforation and 40 year paint warranties are available for the panel itself though. Our Standing Seam Roof systems do come standard with a 5 year weather tightness warranty and can be upgraded to 20 years.
