Why Us: Our Buildings Are Designed To Make Steel Building Construction Fast & Easy
Prefabrication Saves You Money AND Delivers Quality
Prefabricated means we’ve done all the engineering of the building materials for you before your building is delivered. The buildings are cut to specifications in the factory, then shipped as a kit to the building site to be constructed.
You’ll get the precision and quality of using multi-million dollar fabrication equipment at a factory without having to pay for a custom engineered structure.
Less expensive: A prefab building is generally less expensive to build than a custom engineered structure. Our standard building kits are designed for do-it-yourselfers to save on high construction costs.
Easier to construct: The components included with your SteelMaster building are made to exacting standards of accuracy for easy assembly with predrilled holes and bolts as the only required fasteners for construction. In other words, a lot of work of measuring and drilling is already done for you!
High quality: Our state-of-the-art factory is fully equipped with the latest technology and highly-skilled production technicians who go the extra mile to manufacture superior quality products to our customers.
Our Construction Manual Takes You Step-By-Step
The SteelMaster construction manual provides you with general step-by-step information on the assembly of your metal Quonset hut kit with illustrations.
Some of the information includes:
Construction and building insurance
Installation of parts and accessories (ex. Endwalls, Windows, Skylights, Vents)
Grouting, caulking and completing the building
Building maintenance and preventing damage
*Keyway foundation is standard on all buildings. Industrial Base Foundation option shown is for illustration purposes only
Do It All Yourself Or Do It With A Team
Don’t have a background in construction? That’s okay! SteelMaster’s prefabricated structures are simple to construct.
We make the building process much easier than a traditional building because our arch panels and endwalls are pre-cut and pre-drilled at the factory to their exact specifications.
You can assemble the building yourself, with some friends, or you can hire a local contractor to install the building. Many of our customers opt to assemble and raise the arches themselves to complete their SteelMaster building and are proud of their project completion.
The materials used to construct a SteelMaster building are easy to handle.
For a standard 22 gauge building, no individual arch panel will weigh more than 40 pounds each with the thickness of the steel dependent on the size of the building.
Larger buildings have more panels, which makes for a heavier arch. For example, an A-Model 25’ wide, 13’ high in 22 gauge would weigh approximately 160 pounds per arch (which in that size is seven panels bolted together to form the shape).
Our S-Model 12’ wide, 11’ high in 22 gauge would weigh approximately 120 pounds per arch.
Always remember that our customer service staff is available should you have any questions during the assembly process.
We Support You
Because SteelMaster can’t vet and train all the possible contractors in your area, we typically do not refer customers to specific contractors.
Some steel building companies refer you to their preferred contractors, who in turn give a piece of their profits back to the steel building company.
Unfortunately, this typically means a higher price from contractors to compensate for sending some profits back to the steel building company and contractors selected for profit over quality.
We suggest researching local contractors around your area by looking at reviews.
Make sure your contractor is licensed and insured and can provide documentation upon request.
If you decide to hire a contractor, our customer service team is available should they have questions during construction.
Unload Your Building With Ease
The customer is responsible for unloading their building when it is delivered. But don’t worry–we’ll load your building in a way that makes it easier for you offload using a truck.
Depending on the size of your building, you may choose to unload the panels by hand or piece of equipment such as a forklift, front end loader, backhoe or boom truck.

Steel Master Buildings came through for us. We ordered a building (16x14) open ended and about half way through the... process, we ran into problems with conflicting data from our county regarding snow load. After our conversations with the company, they were able to make acceptable design changes that would get the building into compliance. SMB stuck with the process and got it done and that says a great deal about their customer service, I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for this type of building.M.

We purchased a 10' x 20' building for storage and a covered place for our quad. The purchasing experience was easy and... informative. Customer service has been very helpful all throughout the purchase and build. I'm 60 and my son and I put it together by ourselves!! It was relatively easy and the result has exceeded our expectations. We'd highly recommend a SteelMaster building to anyone, great product! Lori C in Washington Stateread more

Make sure that you have a few people there to help with the construction, you could do it with two, but 4 is best for speed and simplicity. Overall great product and would recommend to others.read more
Steel master not only had a large selection and wide variety of buildings their staff from sale to after sales was... fantastic. I had trouble with my local permitting office over the placement of the building, my after sales representative was very helpful in getting me a change in blueprints. Even now more than a year later they are contacting me, not to sell me anything but to ensure that I am enjoying my building. The building itself is extremely durable and strong, better than any stick build barn I could have built.read more

Sales was very professional through the purchase process. All representations by sales and the installation /delivery... agents were transparent and gave us a great insight to the installation. The team resolved several cost and installation issues from experience they were able to convey to us. Delivery from the factory was on time as scheduled and the driver was very knowledgeable of the load - greatly facilitating our receipt! Love my building!read more
Sales was very patient and helpful through the investigation and purchase process. The company was good to its word in... the promises and representations made by Sales. No gotchas! The after-sale followup was great - they seemed to anticipate what I would need to take delivery and actually erect the building. Delivery from the factory in Canada was flawless and painless. Customer service for erecting the building was a little spotty but I can't say it was anything they did wrong; mostly it was my impatience, particularly over the Thanksgiving and December holidays. I would have to say they are reliable and responsive and truly want customers to be satisfied with the entire experience. The product itself is excellent; everything fits exactly as it should, if directions are followed. I am very confident in the long-term durability of the building.read more
