What Steel Building Types Are Trending in California and Why

California leads the country in new steel building construction

Are you eyeing a location to construct a new steel building in California?

If so, you might find yourself looking around at the other steel buildings that are going up in this state, leading you to ask the question, “What steel building types are trending in California?”.

The answer actually depends on who you ask: a residential or a commercial steel building customer. This article goes through some of the reasons your customers are making their purchases to help you make a decision on your upcoming project.

What’s more, the overall process of choosing and purchasing a steel building is very straightforward. The customer chooses the size and finish level, and then waits for the steel building to be delivered. Everything shows up at once, and nothing is left out.

Since the steel building is sold as a complete building, everything is kitted together. All the steel structural components, the exterior panels, and roof sections are in the “kit”. Any connectors, brackets, or flanges needed to finish the job are going to be on-site with the entire shipment. Also included are all the nuts, bolts, washers, and locknuts that are needed. There’s absolutely nothing else to buy.

Since all of the component sizes were determined at the factory, the assembly process goes rather quickly. All of the options such as door and window locations, roof pitch, and other available features were built into the steel building at the factory. You simply follow the manufacturers’ assembly blueprints, and the final structure is then ready for use.
