Future Buildings Reviews & Client Testimonials
We are committed to providing product and service excellence and therefore we rely on feedback and reviews from our Future Buildings customers to ensure that we are always exceeding their expectations.
We are proud to have happy customers all over the world and it is our pleasure to share some of the building experiences and other comments we have received from our many Future Buildings steel building owners over the years.
I ordered my Building in late 2011 because of Future Building’s end of year clearance sale. I asked them to not deliver it till spring as I couldn’t get it near the shop area what with the snow we had. Once the snow cleared and I had the land for it cleared it became obvious that the building that I had purchased was not going to fit as we had hit some massive and really hard rock ridges that the excavator and hammer could not remove and the site was too close to the house for blasting. I contacted my sales rep, Nick , and explained the problem. He said not to worry he would figure something out and got me a smaller building with similar cost savings as the clearance one I had originally purchased, Thanks again Nick! The building went up great with very few problems, Future Building has really thought these things through, and I have enjoyed it for 8 years now. We had more than double the rated snow/ice load last winter and due to my inability to clear the snow and ice off it my building took a little damage, some cracks in the peak panels. Once I found them I contacted Nick ( who has risen quite a bit in the company since I last dealt with him) and he immediately set about helping me contact the relevant people in his organization to get the assistance I needed to fix the damage. They have been very fair in helping me to get it fixed ASAP( can’t till next spring because of site conditions) and Nick himself has gone out of his way personally to help me find documentation I had lost to help out the insurance company with my claim. I can’t say enough good about Nick and the Future Building team, they went above and beyond when I first got the building from them and again now that I am having some problems with it, none of them caused by the building itself I might add, just an unusually massive snow and ice load. If I was to ever build another steel building Future Building would be the one and only company I would even think of dealing with, period. They’re the best!

I’m so thankful and excited to be moving forward on our new home, land, and building our future for generations yet to come!!
Take care and thank you again.
“Future Buildings helped me get my man cave garage, finally! Their shipping department worked with me to figure out the best time to deliver my building which was perfect because I had some help from my son and his friend to unload it. The driver found us no problem and I couldn’t believe how compact and efficiently it was packed together. Great job, Future Buildings!”

“I am so impressed with your service!! I have been contacted time and time again to make sure I get my building and no stone seems to be left unturned. I will be the best advertising for your product, but more importantly, the service you offer your clients. To repeat, I am totally impressed with your concern for your clients.”

“The construction of our 18×20 car port went very well. Three of us took just about a day to install the roof structure
and the instruction book was very clear and helpful. As promised on the delivery manifesto, we have a healthy amount of nuts and bolts to spare.
As you know, the one glitch in all of this was that we received one incorrect component, which fortunately was just a trim piece and not something structural. Shortly after I contacted you, I was phoned by the factory, and we had the correct piece delivered today by courier (took just 3 working days with a weekend in between).
All in all, this has been a very good experience, and the car port looks good and feels very strong. I have every confidence that it will take whatever the winter will throw at us.
Thank you very much for all of your help, expertise and professional and prompt after-sales service. It is a pleasure to know that a Canadian company is behind this product.”

“…I was impressed how easy this steel garage kit went together. We put it up with four friends in a 3-day weekend with winter weather and $60.00 in coffee! The insulation was fairly straight forward and went in quickly. The door was a bit of a problem but a few phone calls to Future Buildings and it went in well. I had lots of questions about my metal garage and every time I called I received excellent advice. I would recommend this garage to anyone and will definitely get another steel garage from Future Buildings when I need to expand…”

“…We had a crew of about 6 inexperienced men plus a tractor and a loader. This saved a lot of scaffolding. We put up the whole building without tightening the bolts (as per directions). We put braces on the sides to keep the garage square. This metal garage was designed especially with higher sides. The extra height allows us to put our trailers right to the sides. We like it very much for our storage…”

“…I purchased a 30 x 50 “S” style steel garage. The staff was courteous and informative. My steel garage kit arrived on the delivery date we set up with no delays. Now, about the garage: I am really happy to have purchased the industrial arch connector plates as I mounted them to a floating slab. They kept everything on center and were easy to attach to. Another is the skylights, they allow more than enough light – more than I imagined! I am very pleased as I do not have power for lighting. This is the first time I have built a steel garage from a prefabricated kit and it went together well. Your garage manual is easy to follow. I have a beautiful garage that is maintenance free and is designed to handle the snow load for this area…”

CASE STUDIES – Hobby Metal Garages & Metal Workshop
“Thomas purchased a retirement property in Golden Valley, AZ to pursue his hobby of restoring antique cars. His Future Buildings steel garage provided him with a clean, dry workspace that was so economical he could afford a metal garage that was twice the size he had originally expected to purchase!”
Steel Garage Kit For Recreational Vehicles – RVs
“Barry also lives in Arizona and wanted a two car steel garage kit that would shield his new motor home and truck from the scorching desert sun. Due to the layout of his land, he needed large sidewall openings. The straight walled “A” style steel building proved to be the perfect answer to his goal of having a two car steel garage that could be customized to suit his property. Congratulations, Barry!”
Insulated Steel Garage Kit with Overhead Door
“Trevor called from Lac La Biche, AB looking for a large insulated steel garage to store his new 5th wheel. The “X” model steel building had the clearance he needed to fit a large overhead door. Trevor also finds that the Future Buildings pre-cut insulation package with vapor barrier keeps the interior of his steel garage warm and dry.”
“…I had about 10 of my family and friends who helped put the workshop building together. There were 4 on the ground putting the sections of the workshop building together. We had a scaffold in the center of the workshop and hoisted each section up and bolted them together. We had it built in a day and a half. The workshop is strong and sturdy. I also had it insulated so I could heat it with a wood stove. Everything was easy to install. I am retired and I do a bit of woodworking and small jobs and the wood stove heat it very quickly when I am working in my building in the winter. I like my workshop building very much and would recommend it. If I built another workshop building it would be a Future Buildings building!”
“…Initially I received your brochure in the mail and decided to make inquiries. The workshop building I was interested in was a 20 x 12 x 30 “A” model steel building. The foundation instructions were really good and easy to follow. I requested a delivery date and it was right on time! This workshop building is used as a wood-working shop and has lots of space. I insulated it with your insulation kit and it was very easily installed. I have since added on a furnace room and I pipe in the heat. The workshop building is very easy to heat. The service and instructions were excellent. I have received a lot of comments on my workshop building and have recommended Future Buildings many times…”

“…I am very proud of my workshop building. It is 40 x 60 – with in-floor heating – and an outdoor wood furnace to provide heat. My neighbours helped to put up the steel sides and fasten the bolts. Looking forward to working in it and getting all my wood working tools in place…”
