Frequently Asked Questions?

Metal buildings have a higher degree of airtightness compared to traditional wood-framed structures. They are designed to meet climate and weather-related regulations and provide maximum energy efficiency.

We use various types of anchors for metal building installations, including:

  • Rebar Anchors - Great with gravel and solid ground, directly attached to the foundation through base rails.
  • Mobile Home Anchors - Popular for dirt or soil as they firmly hold the building to soil foundations.
  • Concrete Anchors - The most preferred anchors, as they connect the structure directly to concrete slabs, providing unshakable stability and ensuring your building can stand up to any environment.
  • Asphalt Anchors - These anchors are spiked rods that are driven through the asphalt into the soil, holding your building in place.

Depending on the size, location, and purpose, you may need a building permit. Most cities and county municipalities require building permits to complete the metal building installation. It would be best to check with your local building authorities to determine your area's specific regulations.

Metal buildings, including carports, are usually measured using the Width x Length x Height, such as 24’x 25’x9’. The length measurement often ends in an odd number due to the metal roof's overhang on each end. This means that the roof length is actually one foot longer than the base rail length. To understand and measure the width of a metal building, just measure from one outer edge of the base rail to the opposite outer edge.

We understand that finding the right surface for your metal building can be a difficult task. Our team of building experts can install your building on any level surface, whether it be concrete, asphalt, gravel, or plain-level ground.

Certified buildings are inspected and approved by the International Code Council (ICC) to ensure they meet all the building standards, providing an extra level of safety and security for everyone who uses them. These buildings are engineered to withstand specific wind and snow loads, giving you peace of mind knowing that you're in a safe and secure environment.

When it comes to building a slab, it's important to take into consideration the length of the roof. Generally, the slab should be 3/4" wider and 1' shorter than the roof length. However, if you're calculating based on the exact floor span or base rail, then your slab should be the same size as the building length. Building codes in Florida may differ from other areas, as the state is prone to extreme weather conditions.

This will depend on the type of building that you have ordered. However, most of our buildings are delivered within 4-6 weeks from the time the order is placed.
