Let’s face it. No matter what form your building takes–whether it’s a simple backyard shed or a spacious machine shop–paying for it will require some planning. If you’re attracted to the value of a high-quality steel building, but worry that you’ll have to pay a hefty premium for it, we have some good news!

Customers frequently discover that working with a Worldwide Steel Building Kit is substantially more budget-friendly than they thought. Here are a few reasons why:

Lower Installation Costs

This is perhaps the biggest advantage of our do-it-yourself building solutions. Most quality steel buildings are specialty projects constructed on-site, using hired labor and heavy equipment that can rapidly grow your total cost by several thousand dollars. Many do-it-yourselfers are intimidated by the prospect of erecting a steel building, but our easy-to-assemble steel building kits make the process so simple that any property owner with access to these tools can do it.

Because our parts are prefabricated in easy-to-handle units that are simply bolted together on-site, no welding is necessary, and the only heavy equipment you might need is a power lift–which, thanks to the ease of assembly, you’ll only have to rent for a day or two instead of weeks at a time. So the money you save on labor and equipment can go toward what really matters: higher quality building materials and getting the building you’ve always dreamed of.

Built to Last with No Hidden Maintenance

WWSB-steel-structure-outdoor-trussesMany property owners fail to consider the maintenance costs that will sneak up on them over the life of your average building, and that’s a big mistake. What many forget is that wood buildings require continual monitoring and periodic treatment for wood-destroying insects, moisture penetration, and basic rot and decay.

Composite roofing requires replacement every ten years, and paint jobs fade even sooner. Worse, an inadvertent lapse in maintenance or an undetected infestation of termites can lead to structural problems, requiring costly major repairs.

By contrast, our steel buildings are impervious to water, require no treatment for insects, and come with pre-painted sheet metal boasting a 40-year warranty–and that’s on top of our industry-leading 50-year structural warranty on all prefabricated trusses. Your return on investment (ROI) is substantially higher with steel because you’ll enjoy a much longer use of your building, and the premium you pay for superior materials will likely be more than offset by the amount you save in long-term maintenance.

This is the benefit of building with steel—it is very versatile. Steel is roll-formed into uniform and precise shapes that will allow whatever design is necessary for a building. This gives metal equipment sheds a heads-up over wood sheds do to the strength of steel, wood sheds are going to be cumbersome and limited in flexibility and building options. This means that steel can easily be manipulated to fit a certain height to house larger equipment, and can be used to fit in any property space.

Steel components don’t bend, warp or twist. The durable materials stand up to the test of time, providing long-term security and safety to your equipment without wearing down from weather and use. And since steel doesn’t shrink or expand like wood does, your steel equipment shed is a lot less prone to leaks than a standard wooden shed would be. This is what makes all the difference when you are comparing equipment shed designs.
