Prefab Metal Building/Garage FAQs
What is a prefab metal building kit?
Prefab metal buildings are custom-designed to meet your exact requirements. Made from flanged steel framing and rugged all-steel panels, prefab metal building kits provide you with a durable steel structure that is virtually maintenance-free and extremely energy efficient.
How much do prefab garages cost to build?
Car metal garage prices start as low as $8,490.
The average price range for metal buildings varies depending on what you need and how big your steel structure needs to be. For example, single-car metal garages start at $3,000 with shipping included, whereas the largest two-car structures go up to about $14,500 without accessories like windows and extra doors.
In most cases, you will have the majority of the supplies needed once you purchase your prefab garage kit. All that needs to be added is some concrete and labor.
How big are prefab garages?
All prefab garages are custom designed to fit your exact needs, so there’s no one-size-fits-all option available. We recommend that you measure the exterior dimensions of anything you want to store inside your garage, then add 6 feet for clearance around all sides, and multiply by 6 (or 8) to get the square footage required. For example, if you are looking to build a 12′ x 24′ garage, you will need 288 square feet of space.
Prefab garage kits range in size from as small as 10′ x 12′ (120 square feet) up to 40′ x 120′ (4800 square feet), and your supplier can make custom sizes too.
Where is the best place to install my prefab metal building?
Prefab garages can be built on concrete pads or on existing soil. There’s no foundation work required! You can also install them on an asphalt or concrete driveway, but it’s usually not recommended because they tend to move due to temperature fluctuations. Unless your garage is very small (under 200 sq ft), we recommend installing it on a large concrete pad that drains well.
How long does it take to build a prefab garage?
The length of time it takes to build your prefab metal building will depend on the size and number of rooms, but most construction companies can complete smaller garages (under 400 sq ft) in 2-3 days. Larger garages may take up to 1 week or more.
Does your prefab garage come finished inside?
Most garages are shipped with a painted interior. If you want to add even more protection from the elements, an inside liner can be installed that is moisture-resistant and sound-proof.
Can metal buildings support appliances?
You will need to have a qualified electrician install power to your prefab garage prior to finishing it. If you require a heating or air conditioning system, they must be set up so that they don’t come in contact with any of the walls or trim work. You may also want a qualified contractor to make sure the entire installation meets all electrical codes.
How much does it cost to ship metal buildings?
Prefabs normally ship on 48′ semi-trailer trucks which makes them easy to get anywhere!
Delivery costs of metal buildings vary depending on location and other factors, but most suppliers can provide you with an estimated price once they receive your order and know more about what is included in your prefab garage kit (metal color and ornament options). They may be able to deliver it in parts if necessary, which would reduce the overall shipping costs.
Do I have to do anything to prepare for installation?
You will need to level your concrete pad or install a gravel base where the metal garage is going before it gets installed, but that’s usually all you’ll need to get started.
You might also want to have a power outlet installed by an electrician so you can plug in any appliances you may want inside your metal garage. When installing metal buildings, it’s best to have at least two people present – one person can lift or move the structure while another helps guide it onto the concrete foundation. If you are only working with yourself, we recommend that you get a helper!
Are prefab metal buildings durable?
Metal garages are extremely durable, which is why most have a one-time warranty with transferable coverage for as long as you own the building.
These metal buildings are made from industrial-grade steel or aluminum, so they are very strong! You may need to repaint them every four years or so, depending on how much exposure to the elements they receive. If treated properly, these garages should last a long time.
Can I finish my prefab metal garage myself?
Since there are many different options available for insulating, drywall, doors, hardware, etc., it’s best to hire a contractor if you are not familiar with construction. You should also make sure that they are qualified to install the electrical service needed for your prefab metal garage (all sites need at least 14 gauge wiring).
How will my metal garage be delivered? How do I get started on my order?
Most deliveries occur between 1-3 weeks after the order is completed. Manufacturers provide tracking information so that you can see exactly where your package is at all times. This helps you determine how soon it will arrive so you can plan ahead for installation!
It is recommended that you hire a professional contractor once your steel building arrives. Unless you have experience building with metal, you will need to hire someone experienced in working with prefabricated metal buildings.
If the steel building is large enough (over 1,000 sq ft), you may want to consider hiring a crane or forklift for delivery and set up.
Are there any maintenance requirements?
Maintenance requirements depend on your building’s location and how much sun it gets each day. For example, if you live in an area that gets lots of salt spray (such as near or by water) then you’ll probably need to paint your metal garage every 5 years.
Some areas require painting more often than others because of weather conditions like wind, cold temperatures, and more.
Also, if your prefab metal garage is under an overhang or some other type of roof structure then it will be protected from the elements and may not require as much care.
Generally, metal buildings need to see a fresh coat of paint every four years on the outside, while only requiring minor touch-ups inside on trim work. Check with an expert contractor about how often your steel building should be treated for rust-proofing.
What size of prefab metal garage should I get?
Many factors go into determining the perfect prefab metal garage for you… but as a general rule, it’s OK to estimate about six feet by eight feet per car, assuming your structure doesn’t have any overhangs or other features taking up space on the floor.
You can also measure all items you want to be stored, add them together and then multiply by six to get a total floor space.
For example, if you plan to store a large motorcycle (which typically takes up 2-3 feet in width) and three motorcycles with their sidecars… then you can estimate how much floor space is needed by adding two + three together (5), and multiplying that by six (30). You will want a 30’x8′ metal garage for this purpose.
If it helps, you could also think about what size of the house would fit inside your prefab metal garage! For example, a 30×40 custom metal building is the same total square footage as a 5 bedroom house!
You can have your unique style of installation and design – so even though they’re technically made from the same material, they still have similar appearances on the outside!
What are the types of prefab metal garages?
Usually, there are three different styles of prefab metal garages as follows:
• Single car garage
• Two-car garage with a breezeway (one-piece)
• Two-car garage with a breezeway (two separate halves)
How long does it take to install prefab metal building kits?
It typically takes anywhere from four days for our single-car garages all the way up to nine or ten days for our larger two-car structures with breezes. But every installation is unique, so it’s best to contact your supplier and let them assess your needs before they can give you a firm answer.
Do I need to hire someone to install my prefab metal building?
No, in most cases installation is fairly and straightforward; in fact, it’s a fairly easy process to install your steel building without professional help. But with that being said, we always recommend hiring a licensed contractor to assist in the installation of your prefab metal building so you know it’s done right and won’t be negatively affected by the elements or fall victim to theft or vandalism.
Do they provide heat and water?
Most single-car garages come with factory-installed insulation. Additionally, our two-car structures all include electric heating systems designed to keep you warm through the chilly winter months.
Do prefab garages come with insulation?
Most metal buildings include factory-installed insulation that’s rated for all four seasons, regardless of your climate or geographic location. This means you won’t have to worry about it wearing down over time because of the weather when left exposed to sunlight and rain year after year.
What are the benefits of prefab metal garages?
Prefabricated metal building kits offer many benefits in relation to materials, construction techniques, and overall cost-effectiveness.
Less manpower is required to construct a prefabricated structure in comparison with traditionally built ones because instead of using hand-built methods, prefab metal garage companies use high-end technology in their manufacturing facilities.
The materials used to build prefab steel garages are typically stronger than those used for hand-built structures because of the automated manufacturing processes they use. This makes them safer and more durable in the long run.
Prefab garage companies choose properties with great soil conditions, which is why you won’t have to worry about soggy ground causing your new steel building to collapse like it would if built on a boggy piece of land.
Where can I place my prefabricated metal building?
You can place your prefab steel garage almost anywhere as long as there’s enough room for its base and optional accessory items such as extra doors and windows. For example, you should avoid placing it under trees where falling limbs could damage your structure over time, as well as places that are very wet or boggy.
Are Arizona prefab garages easy to install?
Yes! All you need is a level pad and a forklift/truck with a lift gate to move the building into place. You can then finish the installation by yourself or hire a company to do it for you.
How long will prefab steel garages last?
Arizona prefab garages are made from high-quality steel and insulated with polystyrene insulation to ensure they last a long time. They can withstand even the harshest climates, making them perfect for Arizona!

What do I need to know before ordering my custom-built metal building?
Different states and cities require different permits for installation, so make sure you’re in compliance with your local rules beforehand. Ideally, it’s best to place an order before your project begins, as this will allow time for you to receive the building and still be ready in time for your grand opening.

Once payment has been received by your supplier, most large Arizona metal buildings will ship within 10 weeks. Some smaller models may arrive sooner depending on your location.
Can I order insulation for my new metal building?
Yes! Insulation helps protect against weather damage so that no matter how harsh the climate gets, your metal building will hold up.
What is the purpose of insulated panels?
Insulated panels are typically used to create walls in a commercial metal building and create a more comfortable interior for users. Insulated panels are also ideal for those who live in cooler climates where sound needs to be controlled, such as offices and retail stores.
They’re also commonly used on exterior walls of houses during colder climates. The steel panels act as both insulation and wall material so you get two functions in one design!
Does my new metal building require a foundation or footing?
This depends on your situation and what sort of terrain you have available for installation. Most metal buildings AZ come with a concrete base that can be poured before delivery if needed.
Do Arizona prefab garages offer interior finishing options?
Yes! Most manufacturers can paint or powder coat the inside walls of your new custom-built garage for an additional fee, which helps keep any rusty metal from showing through after time.
Can I get windows included with my building?
Windows are available on some models, but not all due to size constraints. Be sure to check beforehand if you’d like this option available.
What is involved in ordering a prefabricated metal building?
When planning your order, it’s important to consider the size of the building you’d like, your location and local government regulations. Some states require special permits for installation, so be sure to check beforehand. Once you’ve made your decision, contact the company to discuss materials before placing an order.
