We take pride in the products we manufacture, and how they help our customers meet not only a practical need for space, but also achieve their goals for their business, family, or lifestyle. That’s why we love hearing from customers like Russ and Ranae about how they’re using their customizable steel building:

“My wife and I have had a great time building our shop. I am attaching a few pictures of the shop (as you can see, we still have some inside work to do). We have done all of the work ourselves, except for the cement footings and floor. Not too bad for a couple of senior citizens!
Thank you for all your support and encouragement. If anybody would like to see one of your buildings, we would be glad to show them ours.”

How are you using YOUR Worldwide Steel Building? Let us know – we’d love to hear from you!

We love the look of our steel buildings, and we want to make sure our customers do, too. Our sheet metal siding comes in a wide range of colors which you can “try before you buy” using our 3-D Building Design Tool.

But a steel building doesn’t have to look like a steel building if you don’t want it to. Our customers have the benefit and flexibility of using a range of other exterior options if sheet metal isn’t your preference.

Aesthetics that match your vision

This flexibility can be particularly important when trying to match a look that may already exist on your property – or matching a new steel house to the surrounding neighborhood.

Worldwide Steel Buildings’ team has worked with many of our customers to design steel structures using a range of exterior finishes, including brick, stone, stucco, and even wood.

Strength you can depend on

Whatever exterior finishes you choose, you still get the strength and durability of our steel truss framing, backed by our unmatched 50-year guarantee. You also get the other benefits of our steel building kits, including full customization, clear interior spans giving you flexibility of interior layout, affordability, and ease of assembly.

Need some inspiration to get started on your project? Look at photos on the “Steel Buildings” tab, check out our 3-D Design Tool, or talk with a Building Consultant specialist to create a structure with the perfect look for your needs.

Whether you like to hit the road in an RV, go off-road on a ATVs or dirt bike, or take to the water in your boat or personal watercraft, summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors. All these vehicles are an investment in summer fun for you and your family – and steel buildings are ideal as garages to store, maintain and protect your investment.

Customize the perfect size

Our steel building kits are 100 percent customizable to accommodate vehicles of all shapes and sizes, and designed to store one vehicle or many. With clear spans up to 225 feet across and customizable ceiling heights and roof pitches, there’s virtually no vehicle our steel garages can’t hold. We can help you design the perfect building for you, from a small garage for your personal fishing boat, or a large-scale structure for your commercial fishing business.

Built to last

You already know steel structures unmatched strength and durability. But steel also offers great resistance to wear and tear from the elements compared to other building materials like wood. We manufacture all of our trusses ourselves using American-made steel, dip them in a rust-proof coating and inspected to ensure the highest quality. And, our sheet metal is designed to maintain its appearance regardless of weather conditions. So let us know what elements your garage needs to withstand – our kits can be designed for any snow or wind load in the U.S., with truss framing backed by our 50-year warrant.

Flexible financing

We understand you need a shelter for your summer vehicle now, not later. Because we build every kit at our own factory, you avoid the “middle man” mark-up, making our steel building kits an affordable, high-quality option. However, if it makes more sense to finance your garage kit, we are here to help. Our Building Consultants can not only guide you through the design process, but can discuss financing options available and arrange the one that works best for you.

Check out examples on the “Steel Buildings” tab, and give us a call to learn more. A Worldwide Steel Building will make sure your summer vehicles have it made in the shade.

Summer is officially here – but we don’t need to tell you that. Cities across the country have been experiencing record heat and high temperatures, and fall is still months away. It’s hot out there!

Fortunately, air conditioning is available pretty much everywhere, and that certainly includes steel buildings. Each of our building kits is completely customizable to accommodate the specific climate control needs of your building usage. Keep in mind it will get cold again and you want to be prepared.

Flexibility to incorporate building systems

Whether you want to air condition the office space within a hybrid warehouse/office structure, or provide climate control for your entire garage, workshop, or single-family steel home, you can plan and layout your own HVAC (as well as power and other systems) for part or all of your building kit. Need a little help? Our experienced customer service team can work with you to understand your HVAC and systems needs and customize your building kit to achieve them.

Design elements to help you keep your cool

While HVAC is the primary means of keeping things cool in the warm weather, some of the most basic design elements can also be used to help manage climate and air circulation in your steel building:

  • Doorways / openings – with clear span buildings 24-225 feet, our steel building kits allow for large garage-style door openings on multiple sides of the building to provide cross-ventilation.
  • Windows – another obvious, but important one: our clear span designs also allow you to place windows to maximize (or minimize) natural light and ventilation based on your specific building site.
  • Ceilings / roofs – the open design of our building kits means you can customize the ceiling height and roof pitch to allow heat to rise to the top of your building, vent out of your building and away from your belongings, equipment – and from you.

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.

How are you using YOUR Worldwide Steel Building? Let us know – we’d love to hear from you!

Summer is here – and wedding season has begun. June, August, September, and October are the most popular months for weddings, as well as other events such as family reunions, outdoor concerts or community gatherings.

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 expand 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 steel structures offer clear spans from 24 feet to 225 feet, giving you clear floor spans and usable space all the way up to the peak.

Durable and Economical

Steel building kits are a convenient and quicker alternative than traditional construction – and generally much more affordable. The value of our custom metal buildings, however, 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 a variety of styles, colors, and finishes to ensure your event space is not only functional, but attractive. 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 or porches, and finishes ranging from wood to stone to stucco. Want a rustic country feel? Our Gambrel barn specialists can help you create a classic look and charm to your space.

steel building for pool

At Worldwide Steel Buildings, we’re always amazed at the uses our customers come up with for our outstanding buildings. Check out this steel building kit that makes swimming a year-round activity. Here’s what the customer had to say about it:

The steel structure is incredibly strong and stable. We can get up to 1.5 feet of snow in our area and the frame can easily handle that weight load. We also can get high winds here and the structure hasn’t budged an inch.

pool covered by steel building kit with clear sidesIt is also very unique in appearance: the frame inside of the pool space has a geometric look that blends well with the rounded style of our pool. Externally, the frame has a clean look and gives very nice ‘curb appeal’. The steel frame design itself makes it very easy to safely mount any kind of accoutrements we’d like in the space (lights, wireless speakers, things like that).

This structure, combined with the polycarbonate siding we chose, gives us a pool space we can use all year. We can cool the building with our fan system during the summer and warm it with area heating in the winter.

We couldn’t be happier with how the project turned out. We have a pool house we can use anytime, any season, and this is something that really adds value to the investment we made for our pool space. We can’t wait to do some swimming when it’s snowing outside!

Again, thanks for all of your help with this, it took quite the effort but really turned out sensational! Thanks, Rob H.

Bencor Uses Steel Building Kit from Worldwide Steel Buildings

Many construction projects across the U.S. use steel imported from China. While it might be less expensive, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Structurally, steel imported from China can’t compare to the superior steel that’s made here in the United States. At Worldwide Steel Buildings, all our steel is made in the United States. This is one of the reasons we can confidently offer our 50-year structural warranty on every Worldwide Steel Building we sell!

Besides using the strongest steel on the market, Worldwide Steel Buildings have many other components that set them apart from the competition. Continue reading and experience the Worldwide Steel difference.

How Are Our Steel Buildings Different From the Rest?

It all starts with the framing. Unlike our competitors’ steel buildings, the sheet metal on a Worldwide Steel building is strictly for aesthetics. There are no sheet metal to sheet metal connections. Instead, our trusses are put on 10′-12′ centers, and the secondary framing on 2′ centers. This difference makes our buildings strong enough to withstand the biggest and the baddest that Mother Nature has to offer!

Additionally, the sheeting for the walls is also built for strength up to 80,000 psi. Both side walls and roof are custom cut to length, making sheeting your building quick and easy, ensuring maintenance-free performance for years to come.

Each Building is Customized to Meet Your Needs

Each building we deliver is manufactured for whatever area of the country you’re in, both in terms of durability against the weather, challenges of the area, and meeting your area’s specific building code requirements. Our design software allows us the flexibility to custom-design your building for your needs. When it’s delivered, it truly is your custom steel building in every sense of the word!

With that being said, one popular question we get from our customers is what are the differences between open web truss and rigid frame steel buildings? And how do they decide which is right for them? The answer is different for each customer, but to start, you’ll want to consider the following:

  • The use of the building
  • Size of the project
  • Location of the building
  • Weather conditions
  • Budget

With those items in mind, let’s take a closer look at these two types of steel buildings to help make your decision clearer.


What Is an Open Web Truss Steel Building?

Open Web Truss Steel Building Garage

Our open web truss frames are ideal for clear spans up to 225 feet, which makes them a great option for commercial applications. Further, the gambrel truss option provides the look of an agricultural building or barn. Open web truss buildings are good choices for buildings regularly occupied by customers or employees. For instance buildings being used as:

  • Retail stores
  • Warehouses
  • Sports facilities
  • Aircraft hangars

Additionally, we have several designs of trusses and all of them allow installation of insulation, HVAC systems, sprinkler systems, sliding or overhead doors, skylight panels, and many other custom add-ons.

Our open truss building designs don’t require heavy equipment to install the trusses, but don’t be fooled by the easy assembly. This structure is developed and built to your local wind and snow building codes so that they can last through anything. They are made of 100% American steel and pre-punched and pre-welded before delivery.

What Is a Rigid Frame Steel Building?

The rigid frame structure is also made of 100% American steel. It allows for the maximum use of open space for storage and mobility. This style of building is a good choice for:

  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing space
  • Churches
  • Agricultural storage for large equipment

Like the open truss building, our rigid frame building is perfect for the DIY project or contractor. The pieces come pre-drilled, pre-welded, and with a easy-to-read, step-by-step instruction manual.

Regardless of the style, we can design a building for your specific needs. We used MBS design software, and all of our buildings are made in an AISC-MB manufacturing facility. Everything from our raw materials to our manufacturing process is monitored by a third-party to ensure the highest level of quality control.

Which One Should You Choose?

If you’re still unclear which type of steel building is right for your project, the best way to make a decision is to consult the experts at Worldwide Steel Buildings. We work with our valued customers tirelessly in order to determine exactly what they need in a steel building.

The best way to determine the right type of building is to give our experts a call at (800) 825-0316 or contact us online and tell us about your project. You can also design your steel building online with our 3D Building Designer by clicking the image below.

Steel Building Kit Home

At Worldwide Steel Buildings, we understand that your home is an expression of the people who live there. Many people think steel buildings  are only made of sheet metal siding, or that the interior of a steel building is cold with a blocky floor plan configuration, but that’s not true with a Worldwide Steel Building. We make it possible to completely customize your home from the ground up with our wide array of add-ons and unique finishings. Here are some different customizable options available to personalize your steel building to fit your specific needs.

Choose from High-Quality Exterior Siding Options

Our steel framing enables your home to be extremely strong and durable. This, in turn, makes materials such as stucco, brick, wood, and vinyl siding, possibilities for your exterior. If you desire a unified look with the other buildings on your property, or want to blend seamlessly into the neighborhood, these exterior choices make customizing the curb appeal of your house a breeze! The exterior possibilities are endless for steel built homes and they have the ability to be as unique as you are!

Interior Options

Just because your house isn’t stick framed with lumber doesn’t mean you don’t have the ability to customize your interior floor plan. Our building consultants can help you plan the layout, get just the right room sizes, and ensure that your home is exactly how you want it.

Our steel building kits for homes are easily customizable. And the best part is, they are the fastest and most affordable way to put up a house! Everything you need is in the kit. With its great ratings on stability and durability, along with eliminating issues of buckling, settling, or twisting, you will feel safe and secure in your new house.
