The 3 Step Metal Building Assembly Process
Footing/Foundations Metal Building:
The foundation of your metal building depends on the local soil in your area as well as snow load and wind load conditions. Therefore, this is one area where many clients choose to hire a local contractor or construction professional. A professional civil engineer can:
A consultant can assist you in choosing the best footing and slab options for your specific project.
Arches for Metal Buildings:
The arches of a metal building are the major components of the structure, acting as both the sidewalls as well as the roof. When properly constructed, your building will be watertight, but optional caulking is available for special projects. A complete instruction manual is supplied when you purchase your metal building from Steel Arch Buildings. If you have a larger metal building project, a few sections of scaffolding will make raising the steel arches much easier. However, many customers find that they can raise the arches with the help of their family and friends if no scaffolding is available in the area.
Endwalls for Metal Buildings:
The construction of a solid steel endwall is fairly simple. Each endwall panel is pre-cut and numbered, making assembly incredibly simple. Openings and frameworks are available for any size or type of door you’d like to include.
You also have the option of customizing your endwalls if you’re looking to save money or if you’re interested in matching the endwalls to your home or other existing structure. Most of our customers do choose to frame out their endwalls with wood for a completely custom finish.
