Florida Needs Metal Buildings

The history of Florida is rich with success. From agriculture to tourism, from aerospace to real estate, the economy of the state is larger than all but sixteen countries on the globe. The Sunshine State’s massive; $1 trillion annual economy offers opportunities for every kind of enterprise.

Unfortunately, Florida is also vulnerable to many kinds of natural disasters. Hurricanes, tropical storms, floods, and more are all part of the subtropical and tropical climates that spread from Key West to the Panhandle. How can a wise investor keep their property safe? Florida needs metal buildings! Steel frames are engineered to withstand high winds and heavy precipitation, plus they are energy efficient. The hot summers and wet winters of Florida will be of no match for the expertly sealed galvanized panels of a metal building. The security, durability, and flexibility of a metal building are only some of the reasons they are the best investment for a property owner. There’s more!

Florida Metal Building Kits

When you need a reliable building on a tight schedule, a prefabricated metal building is the best choice! Your custom model will be engineered, precision-cut, welded, and delivered within a matter of weeks. When a metal building kit is delivered to your installation site, it needs only bolting and anchoring to be completed. We use 12-gauge steel tubing but can upgrade to 14-gauge for your custom project. Metal building kits are affordable, efficient, and beautiful!

Florida Metal Building Site Preparation

1) Location

Stake out the perfect place for your metal building by choosing a slightly elevated area. This somewhat elevated area will allow for drainage and keep stormwater away from your metal building. Make sure to clear more space than the building will occupy so that your crew will have plenty of room to work, and maintenance will be easier. Keep yourself aware of easements and property lines, especially if you plan to pour a concrete foundation.

2) Lay the Groundwork

Always check for existing utilities and evaluate for drainage. And, if you are planning underground utilities, you need to make sure that you have them in place before laying the foundation.

3) Prepare the Foundation

You will probably need the help of a licensed professional with a backhoe for this task. “Grading” is the process through which the soil is leveled and sloped around the edges of the installation site. If you have chosen a soil foundation, this may be essential in your soil preparation process. Your drawing layouts should have an anchor bolt setting plan so a qualified engineer can plan a suitable foundation for your structure.

4) Removal of All Barriers & Barricades

Whether you have a professionally installed concrete pad or a gravel foundation, you will require a clear site for your metal building installation. The site must be completely cleared of vegetation and debris before your building can be constructed. Sometimes, even the simplest tufts of grass and rock could disrupt the foundation of your building! You need to be sure that everything is cleared from the site before delivery day.

Permits for Florida Metal Buildings

Always begin your project with a call to your local building office. Researching before your project begins will save you a lot of headaches later!

Your designated inspector will guide you through the list of necessary permits. Some zones require a permit to be posted on site. Others may have limitations on dimensions or materials. Whatever the rules are, researching zoning requirements before beginning your project will save time and hassle in the future.
