“A” Style Steel Buildings
With its straight sides and peaked roof, our “A” Style steel building kits offer a more traditional aesthetic that is an especially popular choice for using as a workshop or garage. As with our other steel building styles, you can easily match your “A” Style steel building to existing buildings on your property by adding custom or pre-painted endwalls and trim.
Standard sizes for this type of steel building generally range from 16’ to 40’ wide, with varying center heights and unlimited lengths!

“R” Style Steel Structures
With its single radius low profile arch, our “R” Style steel structures use a conventional wall design as side wall support. These structures are incredibly popular when used as shipping container covers or replacement roofs. As opposed to working with wooden structures, our steel buildings and roofing systems offer an option that requires virtually no maintenance while being rot and pest-proof, as well as environmentally friendly and engineered to the exact load requirements of your location.
Our “R” Style steel structures have an impressive standard size ranging from 10’ to 130’ wide, with heights ranging from 8’ to 32’.

“X” Style Steel Buildings
Our “X” Style steel building kits are most often being used as garage or hobby shops. They are also a frequent order for trade and industrial shops, as well as automobile dealerships. Because of the unique truss-less design of any of our steel building kits, you get a clear span fully usable interior without inconvenient posts or beams, and with our “X” Style slightly more interior space.
Standard sizes for this model of steel building range from 20’ to 60’ wide, with varying center heights.

Our basic steel building kits are designed to be installed by our customers without the need for additional machinery or equipment.
“Q” Style steel buildings are available in a large variety of sizes ranging from 16’ to 125’ wide, with heights of half the structure’s span or less.

“S” Style Steel Buildings

A steel building kit is an affordable option for adding a stand-alone building to your property, while increasing your property’s value and gaining a new space.
