Metal Building Kits
What is a Metal Building Kit?
Starting a building project? You’ve come to the right place. At Worldwide Steel, we specialize in helping homeowners and DIYers erect the custom metal building of their dreams, at building prices they can stomach.
Our high-quality building kits make construction cheaper, faster, easier, and more efficient. Instead of buying all of your materials separately and hiring a contractor, Worldwide Steel Buildings provides everything your building needs, in one convenient package.
Our do-it-yourself kits can be customized into almost any type of steel structure, from metal garages to small business facilities. If you want examples, our customer gallery showcases the versatility and workmanship of these prefab steel building kits. They’ve built everything from custom barndominium homes to horse riding arenas, from metal carports to commercial buildings. See some of our finished steel buildings in the gallery below or see more examples by building kit type.
Worldwide Steel Buildings manufactures metal and steel building kits right here in the USA, with the DIY builder in mind.
Prefab metal structures are a cost-effective choice that can save you money on construction costs. Because you’re buying direct from the factory and building it yourself, there’s no middleman to pay. We provide step-by-step instructions, along with pre-punched and pre-welded pieces, so all you have to do is bolt or screw those pieces together. It really is that easy to increase your property value and get the benefit of the metal structure you’ve always wanted.
What Is Included in a Worldwide Steel Building Kit?
Remember when you were a kid, how the words “batteries not included” could ruin your day? We do too. That’s why we’ve made sure to include as much as possible in our prefab, DIY metal building kits. As long as you own a basic toolbox, extension ladder, tin snips, screw gun, and metal cutting blade, you basically have everything you need to assemble one of our building packages.
Unlike other steel building systems, this means no renting expensive specialized tools, no hiring contractors, no running out to get more unexpected materials, and no reason to slow down while you build the steel structure of your dreams.
Our metal building kits arrive at your property ready to be assembled. As soon as you offload the truck, you’ll be able to tell that our American-made building materials are of the highest quality. All you’ll need when your steel building kit arrives is a way to unload the steel framing and building materials from the delivery truck and to hoist supports during assembly.

What Do I Do When My Kit Arrives?
Our steel building kits are designed with ease and safety in mind. That said, they are still comprised of heavy building materials and should be treated with care. Here’s what to keep in mind when your steel building kit arrives:
- There should be a definite loading and unloading plan. Least-handled material is usually safest-handled.
- Have equipment on site to unload off a flat bed trailer. Safety should always come first.
- Your building will come in bundles for easy manageable weights. Handle these building packages carefully.
- Everyone should keep hands and feet clear and from under material.
On job sites, reasonable care should be taken when handling painted surfaces during installation in order to protect the finish. Although the paint coating is high quality and provides impact resistance, dragging the sheets across the surface of one another or other building materials will mar the finish.
These DIY steel building kits come equipped with easy-to-read building instructions and, besides your toolbox basics, all you’ll need are these five tools for assembly:
- A way to transport the building materials to the construction site and to hoist them into place. If you don’t have a tractor or a skytrack, look into renting one for the weekend.
- Extension ladder
- Tin snips
- Screw gun
- Metal cutting blade
To preserve and protect the attractive appearance of your roofing and siding from damage caused by moisture, corrosive chemicals or improper handling, it is necessary that you take a few simple precautions. When material is received bundled, sheets should be inspected for shipping damage. If damage is present in any of the building materials, the carrier should be advised and a notation made on the B.O.L. (Bill Of Lading).
Prolonged storage of sheets in bundles is not recommended. If conditions do not permit immediate assembly, extra care must be taken to protect the material from damage caused by moisture.
Store bundled sheets IN A DRY PLACE ONLY. Strapping bands should be broken and sheets should be blocked off the floor with one end slightly elevated. Stacked sheets should then be completely protected from the elements while maintaining good airflow to prevent condensation. A properly draped canvas tarp is an example of a good protective cover. Do not use plastic, as it causes sweating or condensation to occur.
