Prefab Metal Building Kits Prices

Tired of renting space at some offsite storage facility? Those monthly costs can add up, and getting to your stored items isn’t particularly convenient, either.

Read on to learn more!


Benefits of Ordering a Prefab Metal Building Kit

What’s great about having your own custom-made prefab metal building from Carport Central? Plenty! To begin with, a prefab metal building isn’t nearly as susceptible to moisture as a wooden building or stick-build is. Steel won’t rot like wood, and it provides more reliable protection from sun, storms, and everything else that nature has to throw at you.Termites, rodents, and other pests don’t really have any impact on steel,either. Concerned about fire threats?Your valuable items will be much better protected by a naturally flame-resistant prefab metal building!

Steel is also a much more flexible construction material than wood or aluminum in terms of its design possibilities. You can get your building exactly the way you want it, and it’s also easier to expand or adapt a steel structure as your needs change over time.Prefab metal buildings are easier to maintain, too.While many other comparable buildings will require frequent painting or staining, you won’t have those concerns with a metal building. And cleaning a steel structure is a breeze – just hose it off, hose it out, or shoot it with a pressure washer once in a while.

Prefab Metal Building Kit Prices

So, what does a prefab metal building kit from Carport Central actually cost? Less than you may think! The final cost of your building will depend on a few factors, including your building size and design, its roof style, and the other particular customization options you choose. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind:

  • Metal building size
    You probably already know this, but the bigger your metal building, the more it will cost. But having said that, it’s also generally true that your cost per square foot actually goes down when you choose a larger building. The larger your metal building, the more cost-effective it really is.
  • Building design and complexity
    One benefit of choosing a light-gauge steel structure is that you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to choosing your building design. There are many popular styles of metal buildings we make available, but you can also create your own custom building plan with our simple-to-use 3D Design Tool, all from the comfort of your couch!
  • Customizations
    With Carport Central, you have many, many customization options to choose from. Whatever options you select will ultimately impact your metal building’s final price:

Which roof style would you like – regular, A-frame horizontal, or vertical?

Do you want your structure to be open-air, partially-enclosed, or fully-enclosed?

Would you like standard 14-gauge steel framing, or would you prefer to go with our more rugged 12-gauge?

Standard 29-gauge steel paneling, or do you want to upgrade to a sturdier 26-gauge?

We currently have 15 standard color options available at no extra charge (color selection may vary based on your location), or you can choose one of our premium colors with a slight up charge. You can also go with an attractive two-tone or wainscot look for your shed, if you prefer.

What kind of entry points would you like for your building?We have many sizes and options for roll-up doors, walk-in doors, windows, and frame-outs.

  • Certification options
    Depending on where you’re installing, wind and/or snow load certification may be required in your area. Or perhaps you’d just prefer to have the peace of mind that comes with owning a certified prefab metal building. Carport Central is happy to offer certification to meet any desired specifications; prices vary depending upon your chosen certification package.
  • Site foundation
    What type of foundation will you choose for your metal shed? Concrete? Asphalt? Gravel? Something else? (NOTE: Carport Central doesn’t provide ground preparation or paving services.)

And here’s some more good news – the foundation you choose is completely up to you. If your intended use for your metal building doesn’t require needing a paved foundation, then you don’t have to spend the money to pour one!

  • Delivery and installation
    At Carport Central we normally include delivery and of your metal building with standard purchase, but if you’re into DIY projects we can also provide you with a custom-fabricated metal building kit that you pick up and install yourself at a discount!

What Else Should I Do to Get Ready to Install?

Once you place your custom prefab metal building kit order with Carport Central, there are a few things you’ll need to do to get ready for installation. Depending on your specific location, a building permit may be required. If so, it will be your responsibility to secure any needed permitting. Got questions about building codes in your area? We’ll be happy to steer you in the right direction on those.

And what about the building installation site itself? You’ll need to ensure the site is level and cleared of debris ahead of time. Now would also be a good time to go ahead and prune any nearby trees or other vegetation close to your building site. You’ll also want to mark off any utility lines that run underneath or around your installation site. Got other specific questions? Just let us know, we’ll be glad to help!
