Perhaps you need a new place to store your items outside of your garage on a residential property. Maybe you are looking for a quick storage solution as a business owner. In either case and in many more, pre-engineered steel building kits can be one of the most logical solutions. One of the biggest questions most customers have when they decide they want one of these building kits is what exactly is included in such a kit.
Understanding what is included will help you better prepare for the assembly process and get a good idea of your total end cost. Here is a look at what is included when you buy a pre-engineered steel building kit.
You get sets of easy-to-follow blueprints, parts lists, and instructions.
Perhaps one of the most important parts of your kit will be the documents that come along with it. You will get a set of basic blueprints that give you an idea of where each piece of the building should go and what the measurements should be. You will have a set of step-by-step instructions for assembly, as well as a detailed parts list so you can ensure you have everything you need.
You get a solid frame and pre-cut pieces to connect together.
The frame of most steel building kits will come preassembled, but you will have other pieces that have to be connected to the main pieces. One of the major advantages of these pre-engineered buildings is the fact that the pieces will already be cut to the proper shape and size, so assembly is simple.
You get sturdy fasteners to make the proper connections.
Fasteners are included with your building kit, even though many buyers assume they will have to buy their own. The beauty of having the fasteners already is you will know without question that what you have will fit.
You get metal roofing and siding panels.
Your metal building kit will come with roofing panels that interlock together for simple installation. You will also get metal paneling or cladding to complete the enclosure once you have completed the frame of the building and put the metal panels on your roof. You will also get the doors that you have specified that you wanted with your building. For most buyers, regular swing-open exterior doors will be used, but some buyers also go with an overhead door, which may require a little assistance to install.
