Metal Building – The process of getting your own turnkey, pre-engineered metal building is very easy. After you consider the options and place your order online, we’ll make arrangements with you for a convenient delivery date.
When our knowledgeable installers arrive at your residence, we’ll begin the steps of assembling your new custom metal building on a level piece of your property. We anchor our buildings to the concrete or ground for extra stability.
By definition, the building systems offered by General Steel are different than any other type of steel building. Our metal building kits are unique because the building system bolts together, and all of the welding is done at the factory prior to delivery.
In fact, all of your framed openings for functional necessities such as windows, doors and even skylights are pre-punched before arriving at your job site.
These details may seem minor, but these differentiators from other building systems significantly reduce construction costs and make many of our steel building kits do-it-yourself friendly, no matter the type of project.
We provide free delivery and installation of our custom metal buildings to dozens of places, including Alabama, Arkansas, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
A custom metal building is ideal for protecting valuable property, especially in states that experience extremely inclement weather, such as Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. Buy one of our custom metal buildings and you’ll know your cars, farm vehicles, bicycles, yard tools, and other valuables are safe from high winds, rain, snow, and ice. You can even use your metal building to store your motorcycle for the winter.
Our sheet metal buildings protect your valuables from thieves and intruders on your property, too. Instead of parking your car, ATV, truck, or bicycle outdoors where thieves can see it, store it inside your metal building where it is out of sight. Our metal buildings serve as a deterrent to thieves who want to focus their efforts on easy targets throughout a neighborhood.
Our custom metal buildings are not just practical structures that offer security. They are visually appealing as well. We have a selection of 13 colors for your trim, roof, and siding. This makes it easy to find a color for your building that coordinates with your house, shed, or other structures on your land.
We have metal buildings in many different sizes, from small ones for a single piece of farm equipment to large ones to hold multiple cars and a riding lawn mower. No matter what you’re looking for, we have a metal building in our inventory that is certain to fulfill your unique needs.

Commonly Asked Questions
Do the prices of your sheet metal buildings include delivery and setup?
Delivery and setup are included in the price. Our metal garage buildings can be delivered and installed on your level land in Alabama, Arkansas, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, or West Virginia.
What if I want to pick up my metal building and install it myself?
We do not allow customers to pick up their metal buildings. However, we do drop off metal buildings at our customers’ homes. Those who make this arrangement with us must assemble their metal garage buildings themselves.
We do not recommend this option to customers because we like to supervise the installation ourselves. But if you assemble your custom metal building, you’ll save 5% on the price. Customers who install their own metal garage buildings are not entitled to the 30-day craftsmanship warranty, however.
After I choose a custom metal building and place my order, how long do I have to wait for delivery?
The delivery times for our metal buildings vary from state to state. We provide all of our customers with approximately one week of notice regarding the delivery of our pre-engineered metal buildings.
On the day of delivery, how long will it take to install my metal building?
Most of our small steel buildings are installed in about half a day. The larger pre-engineered metal buildings should take one day to install.
What is the difference between a regular, boxed-eave, and vertical-style roof?
The regular-style roof is rounded on the sides with a barn-like shape. This is the most economical option for a metal building. The leg height on the regular garage packages is 8 feet, but at the top of the bend on the leg, it is 1 foot taller.
This gives you 9-foot legs with a 9×8 garage door. The boxed-eave and vertical metal building packages come standard with 9-foot legs fully enclosed with a 9×8 garage door. The boxed-eave style has an A-frame gable roof with a 6-inch overhang on both sides.
The vertical style is also built with an A-frame roof and has a 6-inch overhang on both sides. All of our steel buildings for sale have a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends. The sheeting on a vertical-style roof runs up and down, allowing the snow to slide off of the building so you won’t have to rake the roof.
Also, there’s bracing attached under a vertical roof to secure the sheeting. This adds strength to the structure of a vertical garage. When you look at the boxed-eave and regular roofs, you’ll notice that the sheeting runs horizontally over the length of the roof.
Can the residential metal buildings be made taller?
Yes, the metal structures can be made taller in 1-foot increments with up to 12-foot legs.
Are the residential metal buildings available with wider and longer dimensions?
Yes. There are a wide variety of sizes available. They can be 12 feet, 18 feet, 20 feet, 22 feet, or 24 feet wide. The triple metal buildings are built 26 feet, 28 feet, and 30 feet wide. We also have our 40-foot-wide models, which are available in lengths of 32 feet, 34 feet, 36 feet, 38 feet, and 40 feet. The lean-to is available in 36 feet, 42 feet, 44 feet, 46 feet, and 48 feet. The lean-to has 12 feet on both sides.
With those models, the lengths start out at 21 feet and get longer in 5-foot increments. The available lengths include 26 feet, 31 feet, 36 feet, 41 feet, 46 feet, 51 feet, 56 feet, 61 feet, 66 feet, 71 feet, 76 feet, 81 feet, 86 feet, 91 feet, 96 feet, and 101 feet.
To make them longer than 41 feet, we simply attach two end to end. They can be built longer than 101 feet. We recommend the vertical roof for any built 41 feet or longer.
Can the residential metal buildings be made in a custom width or length?
Yes. We can make residential metal buildings in a custom size, but we charge the customer the price of the next larger standard size. For example, let’s say you need a 17-foot-wide building and the standard widths are either 12 or 18 feet.
We would charge you for an 18-foot-wide building in this case. This same rule applies to length. If you need the length to be 24 feet and the 26-foot-long model is too long, we can make the base 24 feet long, but it will be priced at 26 feet long.
As you determine the size you want, please remember that when we say 26 feet long, it includes a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends, so the exact base is 25 feet long.
What size do I need my concrete pad to be?
All of the widths on the metal garages are the exact base rail dimensions. The length listed includes a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends. So if you order a 24×26 size, you will want the concrete slab to be exactly 24 feet wide by 25 feet long.
What is the warranty on steel metal buildings?
There is a 30-day craftsmanship warranty on metal buildings. If you upgrade the building from the 14-gauge tubing to the 12-gauge stronger, thicker tubing, you get a 20-year rust-through warranty.
How many different colors are available?
You get your choice of 13 colors for the roof and the trim.
How do customers order your steel metal buildings?
All orders should be placed either by telephone or online. You can email Alan for a quote or call now to speak with him at 1-888-538-5578.
What are the payment options?
We accept personal checks, Visa, Discover, and MasterCard.
How much do I need to put down when ordering a metal building?
The amount down required is 12% to 16%. The remaining balance is due after the building is installed.
What kinds of braces come with the metal buildings?
Two-foot-long braces are standard on all of the center trusses and the corners. You may want to think about upgrading to the 4-foot braces.
How is a metal building anchored?
Our professional team of installers anchor a metal building for free to the ground or asphalt with 32-inch-long rebar. We can anchor it to a concrete slab with wedge anchors. Mobile home anchors are an optional upgrade to your order if the structure is placed on the ground.
What is a “certified metal building”?
The certified metal building package is available if you live in an area that requires a set of blueprint drawings for the local building department showing that the structure is rated for up to 130 mph winds and a 30 psf snow load.
The certified package is available at an additional cost depending on the size. Our certified metal buildings are built fully braced and include mobile home anchors if they are anchored to the ground. Certified ends also need to be added, which requires extra tubing on the back and front ends.
