Customer Success Spotlight: Wings of Faith Ministries
Our goal at Worldwide Steel Buildings is to provide our customers high-quality, affordable steel building kits customized to their unique needs or purpose. We love to share our customers’ stories and the great things they are doing with our products:
Wings of Faith: “Real People Meeting Real Needs”
Wings of Faith Ministries provides ongoing support and donations to missionaries serving mainly Native American populations in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, as well as communities in Appalachian West Virginia. Their volunteer light aircraft pilots make more than 60 flights a year to bring food, clothing, medical supplies, and other aid to those who need it.
Several years ago, Wings of Faith purchased one of our steel building kits to house supplies and donations awaiting distribution to the communities they serve. Jim Yost, who coordinates logistics and deliveries for Wings of Faith, shared these thoughts and photos:
“Our building from Worldwide has proved absolutely invaluable in serving the very poor of the Native American reservations of the Four Corners area. I cannot imagine doing what we do without it. In May 2018, we moved over 50,000 pounds of supplies through this building.”
Thanks to Jim for sharing your story, and for the great work your organization is doing to help others! To learn more about Wings of Faith, visit flywithwings.org.

Metal Building Wedding Venue and Event Spaces: ‘Tis the Season
Summer is here, and wedding bells are ringing. Thanks to the generally pleasant weather, June, August, September, and October are the most popular months for weddings in the U.S., as well as other large gatherings, like family reunions, outdoor concerts or community events.
When it comes time to plan one of these big events (“big” in both attendance and importance), the event venue is one of the first decisions you need to make before you say “I do.” The wedding venue not only sets the tone for your budget but for the look and feel of the wedding day itself.
If you’re struggling to find the perfect wedding venue — one that’s in a great location, beautiful, big enough to hold your loved ones and won’t kill the budget? Consider building one instead!
Designing and building your own venue for a wedding ceremony and wedding reception has so many benefits: not only will your big day be completely unique (who else can say they’re holding their ceremony somewhere that nobody else ever has), but after the wedding is over, you can start renting out the event space to other people and making a return on your investment.
Turn to Worldwide Steel for your Perfect Wedding Venue
Our high-quality steel building kits are fully customizable and an affordable way to create an event space tailored to your needs. Whether you own catering or special event business and want to offer customers a dedicated wedding/event space; your church wants to add or do renovations on a reception hall, or you’re a proud parent wanting to create a custom space for your daughter’s (or son’s) dream wedding, we are here to help.
Wide Open Spaces
Because they don’t need columns, our prefab recreational steel structures offer clear spans from 24 feet to 225 feet, giving you usable space across the floor (care to dance, anyone?) and all the way up to the peak. You can choose your floor plans to be fully enclosed (and then converted into barn homes after the big day), semi-enclosed (which provides natural light with an enclosed kitchen, restrooms and bridal suite, which is common for an event barn), or open air (which gives the feel of an outdoor wedding with protection from any potential rain). No matter how many square feet you need to accommodate your loved ones, you can design the perfect event center with Worldwide Steel.
Durable and Economical
Steel building kits are a convenient and quicker alternative than traditional construction – and generally much more affordable. However, the value of our DIY custom metal buildings comes not just from the budget but from their quality, durability, and ease of assembly. We manufacture our own trusses, which are welded in precision jigs for accuracy, double dipped in a rust-proof coating, and inspected to ensure your structure will stand the test of time.
Finishing Touches for a Perfect Space
Both our interiors and exteriors are fully customizable with various styles, colors, and finishes to ensure your event space is not only functional, but attractive. So no matter whether you want an indoor or outdoor ceremony, it will be against a beautiful backdrop with the help of Worldwide Steel.
Our customer service team will work closely with you to design your space inside and out, from \ electrical, water and HVAC, to layout, interior walls, overhangs, porches and pergolas, and finishes ranging from wood to stone to stucco. Want a country-feel rustic wedding? Our Gambrel barn specialists can help you create a classic look and charm for your space.

Insider Tips on How to Budget for Your Worldwide Steel Building
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
Many 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.

Best Metal Building Manufacturer
Strength, durability, and ease-of-construction are the WWSB advantage
WorldWide Steel Buildings is an innovator of do-it-yourself steel building construction systems, and one of the leading manufacturer of pre-engineered steel buildings in the U.S.
Since 1983, we have provided industrial and residential customers alike with quality, American-made steel structures adaptable to any use as a much stronger and more cost-effective alternative to traditional construction.
Our trusses are precision welded, rust-proofed, and undergo a rigorous inspection process to ensure the highest quality in our structures.
Our purlins and girts are formed from rolls of galvanized American-made steel. Our heavy duty open-web trusses are built on custom jigs manufactured exclusively for our process. All of our framing is MIG welded and double-dipped in rust-proof coating.
The steel advantage
Steel is an alloy made by a varying tempered combination of two elements: iron and carbon. This process gives steel its immense strength and durability.
Preferred ten-to-one over wood and brick construction, steel has a higher strength-to-weight ratio, capable of supporting a building of the same size as wood with less material and less need for interior support structures. This reduces cost and labor significantly. And because of its durability, steel buildings cost less to maintain, insure and can stand up to extreme environmental conditions far better than traditional construction.
“Hurricane Ike pounded our partially built arena with 80–85 mph winds from the East, North and Westerly directions for several hours,” write Christine & Steve Seat of Almosta Ranch in Houston, TX. “Needless to say, the main structure survived the storm without damage.”
The application of the steel building construction is virtually limitless. From agricultural buildings to aircraft hangars, horse arenas to churches and recreation centers, commercial buildings, garages and workshops, industrial buildings, storage units, and residential buildings, the possibilities are endless.
The WorldWide Steel Building difference
WorldWide Steel Buildings manufactures pre-engineered steel building kits that can be safely and reliably put together by the handy do-it-yourselfer.
Our trusses are pre-punched to be easily bolted together. The purlin and girt clips are factory welded and attach with self-drilling screws for ease of construction. The sheet metal attaches with self-drilling screws that are flanged and self-sealing to prevent leaks.
