Do It Yourself
How to Set-Up a Pre-Engineered Steel Building Yourself
To further cut costs, buyers can erect their own metal building. This will reduce expensive construction financing; faster erection means less expensive labour. Installation is manageable since components, structural columns and rafters are prefabricated at the manufacturing facility. With set anchor bolt plans and do it yourself instructions, buyers have the option of erecting their building without the additional cost and management of contracting out erectors. Be sure to familiarize yourself with construction drawing prior to erection. Also, be sure to perform an inventory check upon delivery of the metal building so if any issues or concerns arise, they can be dealt with as soon as possible to keep potential issues to a minimum. Backed by the necessary knowledge and industry experience, MetalCor’s staff are only a toll-free call away from answering all your questions and concerns. We ensure that you are taken care of, well equipped and informed when installing your metal building. An average time to erect a metal building with a three-member crew and the necessary equipment would take anywhere from 3-7 days depending on the size of the building. Renting out a track loader, front-end loader or forklift will help to complete the job, and be sure to get your hands on a screw gun, required to install the self drilling screws.
Advantages of a Metalcor BuildingCost efficient: With well-fitting pre-engineered components, assembly can be accomplished by one or only a few construction trades. Structural members are designed to near efficiency resulting in faster erection of your steel building, minimal waste of material and less-expensive field labor.
Flexible to expand: Lengthening a pre-existing metal building, involves disassembling bolted connections in the endwall, removing the wall, and installing an additional clear-spanning frame. This allows for a relatively easy expansion.
