Pre-Engineered steel/metal buildings are the clear choice for several industries and other uses. Garage buildings have the benefit of custom designs and modern technologies including insulation where applicable. Of course, finding a company that is compliant with Canadian building standards is a definite must and a prerequisite, but there are several other benchmarks you should look at to make sure you’re getting the most for your dollar where metal buildings are concerned.

  • Energy Star accreditations are important in every structure and metal buildings are no different. You should be able to find a company that supplies panels that can regulate the temperature inside the building, saving valuable heating and cooling dollars.
  • The echo friendly aspects of these metal buildings need to go further. You should only work with a company that can design a building to accept solar panels to reduce your electrical bill in the long run.
  • It is also important to look for some of the more traditional aspects of any steel building including a good warranty and low maintenance costs.

Pre-engineered steel buildings have other advantages, including the fact that the construction process is much simpler and more cost-effective than with other building materials. Make sure that you can maximize the window size to allow for as much natural light as possible.
