Metal Structure Installation Time is Now!

No matter what you need a metal structure for, there is no doubt that spring and early summer are the best times to have one installed! By getting your structure ordered in April, you’ll be installed mid-summer and ready to put your building to use! Agricultural buildings can be made ready for harvest season, garages and carports can be prepared to face the cold fall and winter weather to come, and storage buildings can have contents piled into them before the weather gets too cumbersome to move a lot of stuff around.

Steel Pavilion Building Permits

Building a steel pavilion is a great, thoughtful idea. What better way to encourage people to get outdoors and socialize! From concerts and barbecues to birthday parties and basketball games, a steel pavilion is truly a multipurpose facility that will benefit any community or property. But what happens when a permit is required to build a structure in your area? What steps does this add to the process of getting your steel pavilion delivered and installed?

Obtaining a Permit to Build a Steel Pavilion or Other Structure

To find out if a permit is required in your area to build a nonresidential building on your property, you should start by calling your city and/or county officials to ask about building codes. Though it may seem as though building a relatively small structure on your own property would be your own decision, that is rarely the case. Your city or county offices will be able to answer all questions relating to permits and the steps involved in obtaining them.

If a permit is required in your area, you will need to purchase a certified structure from us. What that means is that your steel pavilion or other metal structure comes with engineered drawings of your custom structure that you may submit to your county or city to fulfill the building permit requirements. Your steel pavilion will be made from extra-durable 12-gauge steel, and will have higher wind ratings and snow load ratings than if it were not certified.

Before you call about ordering a steel pavilion, go ahead and call your city or county to find out if you need a building permit to satisfy any building codes that may exist. When you have that information, you can give us a call at 855-CAR-PORT. Armed with that information, we can give you more accurate price quotes for the structure that you’re looking to build.

Metal Building Kit Prices

Despite what the big box home improvement stores may have you believe, metal building kit prices are actually incredibly affordable! We’re not talking about a metal building kit that is created in a cookie cutter factory for a one-size-fits-all customer; we’re talking about a fully customizable metal building kit for a structure that is designed by YOU the buyer!

Metal Building Kit Prices are Affordable!

Let’s face it; metal building kits that you find in the chain stores aren’t very cheap. Taking that into account, logic would indicate that a kit that was customized to your exact specifications (be it color, length, height, door size, etc.) would be outrageously overpriced. Thankfully, that isn’t the case. Elephant Structures’ metal building kits are incredibly affordable, despite their highly customizable nature, and are more durable, long-lasting, and attractive than their pre-boxed cookie-cutter counterparts.

The other great thing about an Elephant Structures metal building kit is that we offer FREE delivery and installation of every structure purchased. That means you don’t have to worry about renting a big truck to transport your purchase from factory to your property, and you don’t have to slave away in the oncoming summer to get it built; we do all the grunt-work for you! If you’d prefer to install it yourself, you are certainly welcome to do so. We do warn that our pieces are not pre-drilled and our kits do not come with instructions, so it really is best (in most cases) to take advantage of the free installation that each metal building kit comes with.

Check our our metal building kit pricing tool here, or call 855-CAR-PORT to place an order or speak directly with a customer service representative. Our kits are available for carports, barns, garages, sheds, rv covers, boat covers, and a variety of other functions.
