When choosing to construct a prefabricated steel building, there are big advantages:
- 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.

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.
