Assemble and Install Frame
Because the foundation of your building depends upon local soil and loading conditions, this is one area where most people engage a local contractor or other construction professional. A professional civil engineer can:
- Help select your site Determine what site preparation is required
- Design the best foundation for your building
- Supervise construction to ensure design details are interpreted correctly
Your Steel Building Garages consultant can assist you in finding out the best footing and slab options for your project.
Roofing and Sheeting
The arches of your Steel Building Garage are the major components, acting as both the sidewalls and the roof. Properly constructed your building will be watertight. Optional caulking is available for special projects. Complete assembly instructions are supplied in your Steel Building Garages Assembly Manual. With larger buildings a few sections of scaffolding will make the raising of arches much easier. Homemade staging may be employed if no scaffolding is available in the area. Most people find they can raise sidewalls with the help of their friends or family.
Windows and Doors
The erection of a solid endwall is relatively simple. Each panel is pre-cut and numbered making it easy to assemble. Openings and framework are available for any size or type of door.
Customized Endwalls is also an option if you are looking to save some money or if you are interested in matching your home or another structure to complement your existing surroundings.
