How we manufacture your steel building

Carport Central has a systematic process that we follow from the time we receive the confirmed order of your metal building sale. We start with the raw material sourcing where our bulk purchasing power gives us the edge over our competitors in terms of pricing. This step is followed by information gathering as we have the relevant drawings and designs drafted by experts. Our factory makes up the components according to the designs and then we prepare your order for delivery. Once the delivery date has been confirmed with you, the truck is loaded and the components delivered to the site where our experienced installation teams erect the steel building you have been waiting for.

The installation process of your steel building order

Once the delivery of your steel building components is made to your level site, our expert installation teams kick into action. The components are all laid out on the ground in a systematic way so that each part can be assembled as per the design drawings.

1. The structural components are assembled first, while still laid out on the ground. Roof trusses are attached to the pillars and the bottom frame of the unit is laid out on the foundation site and attached to the anchor bolts.
2. The structural components are then lifted into place on the site. At this stage, you can see the size and shape of the building.
3. The roof purlins are attached to this basic framework so that the entire structure is now firmly anchored in position.
4. Depending on your specific design the side sheeting is then attached to the structure. Door frames and garage door openings are all set in place as per the custom design specifications.
5. At this stage, the roof sheeting is set in place.
6. Once all these steps are completed, the final aesthetic features and gutters etc. are put in place to complete the installation.
