Frequently Asked Questions
Metal Building erection times can vary depending on the experience of the erector(s). Steel building kits are usually delivered between 6 and 8 weeks. Once the anchor bolt plans are received, the building slab can be poured and cured before the building arrives. If the slab is poured with the anchor bolts in place, a standard metal building should be erected in 4-5 days. 40x50 metal buildings are considered standard, while a 60x100 steel building may take a few days longer to erect.
A prefabricated metal building is simply a steel building that is manufactured off-site and delivered to a project location as a bolt-together kit. These buildings are designed with professional MBS software therefore they are pre-engineered for the project location and local load and codes requirements.
Steel building are awesome and are the quickest solution for a quality building. Key benefits are:
- Fast manufacturing, delivery, and erection times.
- All welding, punching, and cutting is completed before the building arrives.
- The building is professionally designed for local regulations, loads, and codes in North Carolina.

- They are not limited to current size. Expansion is easy in the future.
- Modifications are simple.
Steel building packages can come with vinyl insulation. Common insulation thickness is 4" for the walls and 6" for the roof. With that said, the best choice is spray insulation. Although a bit more expensive, it is well worth the cost to stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Absolutely! Our metal building kits come as DIY projects. However, we do recommend using professional metal building erectors if available. Erecting the columns, rafters, and purlins can be tricky. However, if you are confident, you and 3-4 other adults should be able to handle the erection easily. Just make sure your anchor bolts are preset before the building arrives.

The beautiful part of erecting your own metal building kit, is that you save money. We do recommend that you have some building experience and are not afraid of heights. Some building experience may help you avoid some critical mistakes.
Always get written permitting and/or approval before starting your project.
If you do not do your due diligence, you may find yourself in a mess of costly trouble. There would be nothing worse than erecting your dream building and then finding out it violated your local HOA, local building codes, zoning requirements, easements, or any other law. You can literally be forced to disassemble your complete building kit and even demolish the concrete slab if found guilty.
We highly recommend getting your permitting during the planning stages of your project.
Your local building codes will come in handy when ordering your metal building kit. They will make sure the building is pre-engineered for your location. This is important for insurance purposes as well.

Proper Site Work for Your New Building
North Carolina Metal buildings come perfectly engineered plumb and square. It is essential that proper site work be prepared for a quality level slab. In addition, storm drainage should be taken into consideration so your building doesn’t encounter flash flood problems in the future. Larger, heavier, steel building kits may require a soils report to determine the integrity of the ground below.
Another aspect to consider is to leave ample room around the slab for delivery trucks and erection equipment such as a fork lift and/or scissor lift.
An unfortunate, yet common mistake for DIYers is pouring the concrete premature to receiving anchor bolt plans.
We understand that people get excited and want to be prepared; although, there is a process to doing things right. Prefabricated buildings are not made to fit concrete slabs, it’s the other way around. Concrete slab's perimeter, horizontal, and vertical beams must be strategically placed to accommodate the load of the building. The anchors bolts must be located in the exact location the columns were engineered to be located.
Don’t skip ahead, follow the plans precisely.
Call it a man thing, we just don’t like to hassle with instructions when we feel that we can do or figure it out ourselves. Because metal buildings are very heavy, we recommend following the assembly structures step by step to avoid any accidents or injuries.
Onsite Metal Building Alterations
Confident and even experienced construction do-it-yourselfers may feel the urge to alter part of the metal framing in the field. Do not do it!
Every steel building kit has been precisely pre-fabricated to be assembled in pieces. None of the pieces should need altering. Removing or altering pieces may decrease the integrity of your building as well as forfeit any kind of protection or warranties from the manufacturer.
If you have any problems during assembly, make sure to go back and check the erection manual and plans. If you still cannot figure it out. Contact the manufacturing company.
If something does not seem to fit as it should, refer again to the erection manual and plans. If retracing your steps does not solve the problem, contact the building supplier.
Cutting, welding, or altering and part of the metal building kit is not required and a must not.
Correctly installing screws on your metal building panels.
Metal fastener installation may be one of the highest areas mistakes take place.
The included fasteners with your metal building package are designed to be watertight. Leaks can be avoided by installing the screws to a proper tightness, not over tight or too loose.
