When you take a look at our website or any of our materials, you may notice the words “We are certified by the American Welding Society (AWS) as a Certified Welding Fabricator.” For our company, it’s a source of pride and a recognition of our commitment to manufacture steel buildings of the highest quality. But what does it mean to our customers?


Top-Quality Craftsmanship

To be designated as a Certified Welding Fabricator (CWF), companies go through a rigorous and lengthy process. It starts with an application documenting quality processes, personnel experience, and capabilities. Then, an AWS expert reviews the company’s quality manual and recommends any improvements needed. Next, AWS performs an on-site audit of the manufacturing facility and another detailed review of the quality manual. The company then must make any changes needed to meet the AWS’ industry-recognized standards to produce the highest-quality steel fabricated structures.

Commitment to Excellence

Becoming a CWF means not only do we have the experience, knowledge, equipment, and capabilities to ensure the strength and durability of our structures. It also means we constantly maintain and improve our quality processes, and participate in yearly quality reviews, to keep our certification year after year. It takes time and dedication to maintain these high standards – that’s why only about 200 companies the U.S., Canada, and Mexico combined have earned this select designation.

Peace of Mind

At the end of the day, what really matters to our customers is that every weld in your steel building is durable, strong, and can withstand whatever weather conditions, loads, or special uses you require. Our steel buildings are backed by an unmatched 50-year warranty – and by the expertise and quality commitment of our Worldwide Steel Buildings employees. This means that not only are you getting an affordable steel building kit customized to the needs of your home or business, you are getting the highest quality our industry has to offer. So when you see the AWS CWF symbol – just like the Worldwide Steel Buildings name – you can have the confidence and peace of mind knowing your structure will maintain its integrity and appearance for years to come.

Let one of our skilled, professional staff members help you customize a high-quality steel building kit, or check out our 3D building designer tool to draft your own design. Either way, we will ensure your product is of the highest standards.

What is it that makes a house a home? Some would say that home is where the heart is; others claim that home is where your family resides. Home means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but at its heart the home is a place of security and comfort, a place where you can rest your head and rest assured that you and your loved ones are safe from harm’s way.

What makes a house into a home, then? Security, strength and durability. These are the attributes that a steel building can provide, and often at much reduced cost to traditional home construction methods.

Worldwide Steel Buildings offers top of the line steel building kits making at affordable prices.

Metal buildings are quickly rising to one of the most common construction types, and the reasons for this shift in construction practices is clear. Steel and metal buildings are durable, reliable, and simple to erect. This means that they go up fast with minimal construction needed—and ultimately this adds up to a more affordable construction process.

Affordability is Key

What makes steel building construction process so affordable is the use of comprehensive building kits. These kits include everything necessary to erecting a steel building—from the trusses to the last fastener.

What makes steel buildings so affordable are the same features that make them unique and sought after. These benefits include:

  • Buildings are able to be erected in minimal time, oftentimes within just a matter of days
  • Steel buildings can be constructed with unskilled labor thanks to the comprehensive building kits and a easy to follow erection manual that make putting together a building a simple task
  • No heavy equipment is necessary for construction, which further reduces labor and rental
  • Steel kits are light weight, which makes it easier on the construction process, but the steel frames themselves are designed to stand up to harsh winds and other environmental concerns.

Steel buildings are steel at their core, which means the frame of the buildings are made out of the durable and stable materials. From there, it is up to you what materials you use to finish the building, which means that you have even further control over the total cost. Exterior finishes are available in sheet metal, vinyl, stucco, wood or brick, and while all offer enhanced durability and strength, each can provide your building with a unique finishing touch.

Financing options are available to make the construction process even more affordable. At Worldwide Steel Buildings, an expert can help you determine what size and material types are best for your project needs, meaning that you won’t have to waste precious funds on unnecessary building materials or put money into a project that doesn’t meet your needs. Contact us for more information about steel building prices.

home_made_of_steelWhen you hear the words steel building, you may think of warehouses, commercial buildings, horse arenas or stadiums just to name a few. However, more and more people are electing to build their homes from prefabricated steel materials.

What are the benefits of a steel home?

Steel framed buildings are stronger than wood. They don’t buckle under pressure which may be a deciding factor for those wanting to always be prepared for the impending natural disaster or apocalypse. They can also withstand some pretty extreme weather conditions that would otherwise start to break lumber down. You don’t have to worry about splitting, settling, warping or twisting. As of right now, steel framed houses are very comparable in price to the average wood framed home. The cost of lumber is often on the rise whereas the price of steel stays steady for the most part. Steel is also fully recyclable which helps the environment. It also helps keep the cost fluctuation at bay.


A prefabricated steel home allows you to make most of the decisions when it comes to the floor plan. Oftentimes when you go with a traditional, wood constructed home, you only have the choice of 4-10 floor plan options. Once people realize they can customize the floor plan, the sizes of their rooms, as well as where they want to build, the decision to use steel is made easy. Contact us to talk to one of our home experts and discuss all of our available options.

Can I use other materials as well as steel?

You can use multiple materials along with your steel framed home. If you want to use a different type of roof system or even vinyl siding, that works. With WorldWide Steel Buildings you can even use wood for the secondary framing if you would like. One benefit of the secondary framing being on 2’ centers is that the interior can be finished off without having to build additional interior walls.


Not only can you build a home out of steel, YOU can build a home out of steel. Like our other steel buildings, our residential kits are prefabricated with the DIY person in mind. You can literally build your home yourself if you choose.


‘Time is money’ is an understatement for steel homes. Depending on your plan you could have your home constructed the same day the kit is delivered. If this is something that entices you, you may want to hire a professional. Whether you decide to build your entire home out of steel, or just pick and choose steel parts, WorldWide Steel Buildings is here to provide it.
