About Capital Steel

Capital Steel metal buildings are used in California for everything from a Mercedes Benz car dealership in Sacramento to personal garages and workshops throughout the Golden State. In fact, one of the top tech companies in Silicon Valley recently purchased a metal building to protect the servers that its users depend on daily.

Customized Buildings

Flexibility and customization options are two of the reasons why so many are turning to Capital Steel when its time to expand. Starting with the base building outlined in the standard features section below, you can outfit the building with doors, windows, skylights, insulation and even stucco or faux stone siding to perfectly suit your needs.

If you have a project in mind, contact us today and we will assign a personal Project Manager to your project and connect you with the local CSI dealer in your area to estimate the cost of construction.

Frequently Asked Questions

Guiding You Through the Completion of Construction

Your local Capital Steel contractor is thoroughly trained by our staff and is fully capable of helping you navigate your project from inception to planning, procurement and finally construction.

What's included in a metal building kit?
Our base building package comes delivered to your site with the primary and secondary framing, roof sheeting, wall panels, fasteners, bracing, sealants, trim and flashing.
How can I customize my building?
We have a menu featuring hundreds of accessories such as walk doors, sectional and roll up doors, gutters and downspouts, windows and even skylights to improve the functionality of your building.
How can I personalize my building?
You can choose to add any combination of colors to the roof, walls and trim. The select will be baked onto the building components prior to delivery. You may also add the look of stucco or stone to your building with optional panels.
How are building prices determined?
The price of your standard building package will be based on the current price of steel, the intended use and the codes and loads required by your locale.
How does my location affect my building price?
If you plan to build in Florida, your building will be designed to withstand higher wind loads than a building delivered to Utah where it may be engineered to endure snow loads. Each condition will require a unique amount of steel.
How does the intended use influence the cost?
A building intended to be used as a garage will most likely require sectional doors, possibly a man door and maybe windows. On the other hand, if you are planning to build an aircraft hangar, a bi-fold door would be necessary. Each component has its own added cost.
What if I need a contractor?
Capital Steel is a one stop shop for all of your building needs! Our builder network is made up of hundreds of contractors who along with the price of your building can estimate how much your concrete, building erection and even turnkey services will cost.

Our Areas of Service in California

California experiences a spectrum of weather patterns, seismic activity and other natural disasters. While other companies may deliver the same building whether it will be constructed in San Francisco or San Diego, your Capital Steel building will be engineered to meet or exceed the codes and loads specific to your county.

For example, if you plan to construct a metal building in Sacramento, CSI will design the building to endure seismic activity while a building delivered to southern California will be engineered for a higher wind speed.
