We've done piles for a few of them, they seem to be the same materials and quality as anything else we've seen in the same price range.

Everyone has a range of products, careful when comparing to be sure you are comparing apples to apples.

If you go with Quancet style better make sure you have a good concrete guy and make the channel for first row to lock into is perfect or your screwed. And have patience cause you have to assemble each section. Comes with a million nut & bolts.

Only finger tighten those nuts & bolts until the entire building is up, then go back and tighten them right up.

Why steel instead of other building methods? Icf or wood? My mind is on icf at the moment. If no intention to insulate or heat icf would be a waste though.

First off, thanks for checking our website.

Secondly, we are currently working on updating our website, hoping to have it up and running by mid January.

Thirdly, our website is there to highlight what we do, not about the products we supply and install. If we did it would take days to view. We are a Behlen dealer so if you want more info on the building and it's components, please check their website. If you're looking at getting a project done we'd be more than happy to sit down with you and design something to your needs.

Appreciate that. Just a gallery of some different buildings available would be nice. Iím considering a steel building for semi truck storage.

We do have a gallery, the thing is our website is outdated and the gallery can't be viewed from a smart phone. Use a PC to view website and gallery will show up.

Tried to view the website Don but I get a message that there is a virus or something.
Might want to get that checked out.

I would like some info on insulation values and rough price on say a 40x60x16. Are these buildings capable of saving a buck on building costs?

Steel buildings can be insulated very well but with the new energy code, the engineer is the one that's gonna tell you what r value is required, not the builder.

To be honest with you, you will not save any money going steel especially in the size you are looking at. Wood is your best bet
