Your Metal Building Contractors questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a metal building cost?

A metal building shell costs $10 to $25 per square foot, depending on the material. Most metal buildings include everything you need to build the exterior shell down to the hardware. Assembly to construct the shell on site adds another $5 to $10 per square foot. Most companies include delivery with the cost of the kit. If it is charged separately, you can expect to pay about 5% to 10% of the total metal building kit price.

In addition to the cost of the building shell materials or metal building kit, you have added expenses for site prep, foundation, and interior and exterior finishing. Finishing costs depend on how you plan to use the building. Using the space as a garage or storage usually requires adding electricity and lighting fixtures. Using the space for agricultural or residential purposes also requires insulation and plumbing.

Does a metal building add value to your home?

Yes, a metal building can add value to your home, especially if it is a garage or carport. Most homebuyers prefer to purchase a home with a garage, so having a metal garage is a durable and low-maintenance option that buyers appreciate.

Other types of metal buildings may add value to your home, but it depends on the buyer and the market you are selling in. In a rural area, a metal barn is desirable for those looking to keep horses or livestock.

What is a pre-engineered metal building?

A pre-engineered metal building (PEMB) is a building that is designed and manufactured in a factory, then shipped to the construction site for assembly. PEMBs are made from a variety of materials, including steel, aluminum, and galvanized steel. They are available in multiple sizes and designs and can be used for storage, garages, barns, or workshops.

PEMBs are less expensive and faster to construct than traditional buildings. They are very durable and can withstand high winds, snow loads, and earthquakes and require little maintenance. Another advantage is that a PEMB can easily be expanded or modified in the future if your needs change.

How long does it take to build a metal building?

The time it takes to build a metal building depends on the size, complexity, the availability of materials, and the weather. In general, metal buildings are faster to construct than traditional buildings.

A small metal garage can be erected in a few days, while a large agricultural building may take several weeks to complete. Site prep and pouring and curing the foundation takes a few days to a few weeks. Finishing the building with insulation, electric, or plumbing features can take a few weeks or more.

How long do metal buildings last?

A well-built metal building can last for 50 to 100 yearsor more, when properly maintained. This is longer than the lifespan of other types of buildings. Metal buildings are durable and resistant to fire, pests, and rot. They can also withstand high winds, heavy snow loads, and earthquakes.

Some tips to extend the life of your metal building include:

  • Use higher-quality materials and construction methods
  • Choose a reputable metal building contractor experienced in metal building construction.
  • Routinely inspect your building’s roof and walls to look for damage.
  • Make prompt repairs if any damage is found.

What questions should I ask a metal building contractor?

Before hiring a metal building contractor, be sure to ask these questions:

  • Are you licensed, bonded, and insured to build metal homes in my area?
  • How many metal buildings have you completed this year?
  • Can you show me examples of your work on nearby metal buildings?
  • Does your estimate include the cost of site preparation and cleanup?
  • Are you responsible for obtaining the necessary building permits?
  • How long does it typically take to install and finish a metal building home?
  • What is your deposit requirement and payment schedule?
  • Do you have a list of preferred lenders for metal home financing?

How do I choose a metal building contractor?

Follow these guidelines to find a metal building contractor near you:

  • Find licensed, insured, and bonded builders with experience building metal structures.
  • Get multiple quotes with similar materials, features, and finishes so you can compare them.
  • Read online reviews of builders on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask if you can visit an active job site to see the builder's work in progress.
  • Choose a builder that fits your budget and timeline.
  • Get a written contract that includes the timeline, payment schedule, and warranty information.
  • Avoid paying large upfront deposits or paying in full until the job is complete. Instead, follow a payment schedule.
