From the time I purchase my metal building, how long can I expect to wait until my dream metal building is delivered or installed?
From the time you place your order and approval is confirmed, you can expect about a 4-6-week lead time! That being said, if you’re located somewhere within close proximity to one of our locations, your wait time will more than likely be about 2-3 weeks! We’re proud to provide our customers with some of the shortest lead times in the entire industry.
What is the difference between a certified and a non-certified metal building?
A certified metal building is created specifically to withstand certain specific wind, rain, or weather regulations! A non-certified building, though durable, is not required to withstand certain regulations!
What is the difference between 12-gauge and 14-gauge steel?
The term gauge is a reference to the size of the thickness of specific sheets of metal. Standard metal buildings typically have a gauge of anywhere from 12-14 framing which we proudly offer. When it comes to measuring the gauge, the higher the gauge number, the smaller (or thinner) the metal. So, if 18 gauge is .05 inches thick, then 16 gauge is thicker at .0625 inches.
How can I customize my metal building?
At Garage Buildings, we believe customization is everything—that’s why we offer full flexibility when it comes to your dream metal building! From sizes to colors to certifications, gauges, and everything in between, we’re all about helping you craft the ultimate building to suit your needs. Here are just a few of the customization options we offer:
What are the roof styles that are available?
We proudly offer three unique roof styles—regular, A-frame horizontal, and vertical.
How do I prepare my site for metal building installation?
Leave the metal building to us—you take care of the site. Before we arrive to deliver and install your metal building (or metal building kit), we encourage you to ensure the site is ready to go before we arrive!
There are several ways to prepare your property before we arrive. We suggest tackling the necessary permits first (we’ll get to that part in a moment), then finding a level section, clearing out a site, or laying concrete to create a flat surface to ensure you have plenty of space and a solid foundation for your metal building.
Why should you do this? Because if we arrive and the site isn’t prepared for installation, it could delay your delivery and install process.
Do I need to get a building permit? If so, where should I get that permit?
That’s a great question. Our answer? That all depends. We suggest checking your county or city’s laws on metal buildings on your property. We highly suggest talking with your local county government to discuss your options and see what you might need to purchase.
Can I install a metal building on my own?
Good news—we offer more than just full metal buildings. Garage Buildings also offers metal building kits! That means if you’re looking to tackle a metal building project all on your own, you can simply buy a kit from us and leave the rest up to your own know-how! That being said, our kits are easy to use, include all necessary parts to set up your metal building, and can easily be customized to fit your unique needs. We’ll deliver these kits to you anywhere in the United States.
Do Garage Buildings offer financing options?
You bet! At Garage Buildings, we understand that not everyone is in the position to purchase a metal building in full. But just because the circumstances don’t allow for an outright payment doesn’t mean that you don’t need a metal building to fulfill your needs. That’s why we offer two different payment options! Choose to rent to own your building or work with our company to finance your metal building! Both methods will allow you to choose a flexible, easy, monthly payment without delaying the installation of your building whatsoever!
