The next time you’re thinking of building a storage shed, one of the strongest outdoor protectors are pre-fab steal metal buildings. Many companies manufacture these products and when you plan to buy, make sure the company you choose is certified. Certified companies will have the quality steel metal buildings you want for your projects. Pre-engineered steel metal buildings come in all shapes and sizes. There are regular square-type box style buildings, and domed or arched shaped buildings. You can find them to fit into a small backyard, or big enough to house a couple of 18 wheelers. These buildings are ultra-tough and very durable, and there are even garage kits. Other companies sell larger structured buildings made to house offices and work places. Independent companies and firms place an order for a pre-engineered steel metal building, giving the steel company the design they want and the components of the building are designed to act together to maintain the structural stability and integrity of the structure. The design and fabrication work is accomplished in the manufacturing facility and when finished, all the component parts are assembly coded, packaged and shipped to the site by the manufacturer.

The majority of these pre-fabricated or pre-engineered steel metal buildings may go up to three stories in height, and most of the designs are for warehousing, offices, light industrial or manufacturing facilities. Some steel metal building manufacturers are looking into the future in hope that soon, they will be able to expand to residential occupancies. That may be a while down the road though. Right now about 70% of pre-fab steel metal buildings, are used for commercial one story buildings. The designs and exterior treatments make it hard to tell they are actually pre-engineered steel metal buildings.
