Elements That Affect the Price of Your Metal Building

You’re ready to start designing your metal building, but you’re not sure about metal building prices. Steel buildings are among the most affordable types of structures, often costing less than their wooden counterparts to see to completion on your ready site. Regardless of the great value steel structures represent, there is some variance in price from building to building – and there are several factors that determine the price of your metal building. Let’s run down what factors affect your building’s total price.

Custom Building Options

One of the biggest factors affecting the design and build of your metal building is the custom building options you choose for your building. Things like the building’s dimensions and size can have a big impact on the price you’ll pay for your building. Obviously, larger buildings are typically more expensive, but the overall number and type of customizations also play a key roll. Whether the building’s ends are open, gabled, or enclosed also adds to or detracts from its cost. If the sides are open, paneled, or enclosed, the price can also fluctuate. The cost of any doors added to the design, whether main doors or garage doors, can make the price tag of your building go up and down, and of course the size of the doors, windows, and any frame out required are additional factors.

Gauge Requirements and Certifications in Your Area

Some areas mandate that metal buildings be built from a specific gauge of material. This can drive the cost up for your building if you’re required to go with a lower gauge, while selecting a higher gauge can drive the price down.

Additional Accessories

The need for additional accessories can be reflected in the overall price of your metal building. For example, anchors, braces, trim, header bars, and other accessories can make your building cost more.

Insulation

The type of insulation used in your metal building’s construction can affect metal building prices. Standard insulation is the most affordable, while spray insulation and insulated panels are a bit pricier but have their advantages. If you require a specific area of the building insulated – such as an interior office – then you may end up paying more than if you were simply insulating the interior to bring the building to code.

The Price of Steel

Like many other metals, steel is considered a commodity, so it’s price fluctuates based on an array of market conditions. Viking Steel Structures uses American-made steel to drive down the cost and drive up the quality, but the price of steel can inherently vary; what you pay for steel this year may be quite different than what you pay next year.

Where You Purchase Your Metal Building

And finally, one other factor that can drive up or drive down metal building prices is who you buy it from. Not all companies have the same prices. Some are more competitive than others. However, keep in mind that lower prices does not always translate over to the same quality. While one company may offer a lower price, it may not offer the same customer service, product service, speedy installation, and warranty that another offers.
