Prefab Metal Building/Garage FAQs

 

Can prefab buildings be designed to fit my lot?

Yes, most prefab buildings can be designed to fit your lot. If you have any questions please contact the dealer/manufacturer for their needs list. Listings can usually be found on their website.

Are prefab buildings insulated and what kind of insulation is used?

Many types of insulation can be requested depending on need and cost, but standard building practices will usually involve Spray Foam Insulation (SPF), which provides a complete seal for all exterior walls and roofs (see R-Value chart). The R-value for SPF is very high; however, it requires professional installers to ensure that there are no gaps or air infiltration through the walls/roof. This is not always an easy task since SPF expands to fit every surface area, even areas that are rounded or angled.

How is the metal building industry in Mississippi?

The metal building industry is always fluctuating. As of today, the market still has an inventory of available structures. This being said, there are many different types of metal structures available on the market right now – the most popular being the Quonset-style buildings. There are so many benefits to these structures that they will continue to be popular for years to come!

Can prefab metal garages be built on foundations?

Yes, most prefab metal buildings can be built on a concrete slab or a wooden floor. If the buildings are to be used as metal carports then a concrete slab will usually suffice, but if they are going to be used as storage areas for heavy equipment and/or vehicles then a wood floor would be more appropriate. If you have any questions please consult with building specialists before ordering.

How long does it take to build a custom Mississippi metal garage?

Once the order is placed, it typically takes 4-6 weeks to build the garage. If a site visit is necessary, that will add an additional week to the process.

Can I put a metal building in a flood zone?

No, prefabricated metal buildings should not be installed in areas that are prone to flooding. You may want to consider a wooden structure instead.

What is the difference between a prefab garage and other types of garages?

The term “Garage” by definition is an area, usually adjacent to a house providing access to one or more automobiles for shelter and/or services. The basic function of a “Carport” is similar to a Garage in that it provides shelter from adverse weather conditions for vehicles, but does not provide the same level of security as a full-size garage because there are no doors at either end to swing closed. A Tuff Shed Shelter provides complete protection from the elements with end entry doors installed on both ends of the structure.

 

metal building roof

What type of roof is used on a prefab garage?

This depends on the customer’s preference. A number of different types of roofs are available, including Regular Roof, Gambrel Roof (Barn Roof), Hip Roof and Gable Roof. The regular roof is the most common type and usually has a 6/12 pitch (meaning the roof rises 6″ for every 12″ in distance). The Gambrel Roof is more popular with customers who want the “barn look” and usually has a 4/12 or 5/12 pitch. The Hip Roof is more popular with customers who want a more “contemporary look” and usually has a 10/12 or 11/12 pitch. The Gable Roof is the most popular type with customers who want a “traditional look” and usually has a 7/12 or 8/12 pitch.

What is the warranty on a prefab garage?

This varies depending on the manufacturer, but generally, it is a 20-year limited warranty against rust through and leaks. Some manufacturers also offer a warranty against hail damage. Be sure to ask your dealer for specific information about the warranties offered on their products.

Are prefab garages fireproof?

Prefab steel buildings are not fireproof, but they are made of fire-resistant materials that will slow the spread of fire if one should occur. Many buildings have been tested by Underwriter Laboratories (UL) and meet or exceed the requirements for a 30-minute fire rating. By installing a UL-listed residential sprinkler system it is possible to meet the requirements for a 60-minute fire rating.

Can prefab garages be built with electricity?

Most prefab metal buildings in Mississippi can be constructed with either 110 or 220 electrical outlets, but you should consult with your dealer/manufacturer regarding local codes where the building will be installed. It may be necessary to upgrade wiring from the utility box since some of these buildings are very large requiring more power, but again you should consult with your dealer first before ordering the building.

What type of insulation is used on prefab garages?

It depends on the customer’s preference but most garages use one-inch thick closed-cell polyurethane foam insulation. This type of insulation is very effective in preventing heat transfer and is also moisture resistant.

Can I paint my prefab garage?

Yes, you can paint your prefab garage but it is best to use good quality paint that is made for metal surfaces. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for painting the building.

metal building foundation

What type of foundation is required for a prefab garage?

This depends on the weight of the buildings and the type of soil where garage buildings will be installed. A slab or concrete pad is generally required for buildings that weigh more than 4000 lbs, while a simple gravel base is usually sufficient for buildings that weigh less than 4000 lbs.

How much does it cost to build a prefab garage?

Pre-cut buildings are usually less expensive than buildings that have to be made from scratch. The price of a prefab garage is determined by the size and features, as well as how it will be shipped to the job site.

Metal garage prices depend on many factors, the most important being size. The largest metal garage is 26’x40′ and costs $8,850. The smallest metal garage is an 8’x10′ single-car garage and costs $1,390.

Garages constructed from scratch are more expensive than pre-cut garages. A simple, one-door garage made from scratch would start at around $2,000. More complicated garages with added features like insulation, electricity and special roofing can cost up to $10,000 or more.

What type of warranty is offered on prefab garages?

This varies depending on the manufacturer but most manufacturers offer a warranty against rust-through and leaks for a period of 20 years or longer. Some manufacturers also offer a warranty against hail damage. Be sure to ask your dealer for specific information about the warranties offered on their products before you order the building.

How much does it cost for installation?

Typically air-tight buildings require no special equipment or tools for installation, so there are no additional costs for installation. Buildings that require a crane or other special equipment for installation may incur additional charges, so be sure to ask your dealer about the cost of installation before you order the building.

Are prefab garages environmentally friendly?

Prefab metal buildings are made with recycled materials and can be easily disassembled and recycled when they reach the end of their useful life. They also do not produce any toxic fumes or particles when they are burned, making them an environmentally friendly choice for your garage.

What are the delivery costs for a prefab building or garage?

*Additional charges may apply for oversized or over-weight delivery so it is best to check with the dealer/manufacturer before placing your order. Sometimes a forklift can be rented locally which could save you money on delivery costs.

What is the difference between a prefab garage or building, a modular (factory built) garage or building, and a do-it-yourself (DIY) garage/building?

Prefab garages & buildings, also known as pre-cut garages & buildings are generally built in an offsite facility away from your job site then delivered to your home or business.

This answer can also vary greatly depending on the manufacturer, but most offer metal roofs such as Standing Seam, Zincalume and Galvalume. Consult with factory for specifics.

Some manufacturers offer a limited warranty for damages due to workmanship & material, while others offer an extended no-maintenance or ‘No Worries’ Warranty that covers everything from hail damage, fire, wind and more. When buying a metal structure contact the dealer/manufacturer and ask what their warranty is all about. Even better yet give them a call before you purchase so they can walk you through it in detail and answer any questions you might have.

You will want to do this anyway because most of them have different products which mean each manufacturer’s product line requires a different set of tools and resources to assemble. Don’t let this overwhelm you, though. The process is actually very simple, and most garages can be assembled in just a few days by two people. Just be sure to consult with the dealer/manufacturer for their needs list. Listings can usually be found on their website.
