Metal Building Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Do The Metal Building Prices Listed Include Concrete?
While the short answer is no, we don't provide concrete and/or ground work; The truth is a bit more complex. Local concrete contractors, pricing, and availability vary tremendously from one area to the next making it nearly impossible to provide on a nationwide scale. With this in mind, we focus on what we're best at: Premium Metal Buildings Delivered & Installed!
Will I Need To Get A Building Permit for My Metal Garage?
This entirely depends on your local building and code enforcement. We do not require a permit in most areas for installation but do recommend you check with your local authorities to ensure a hassle-free construction process. If you should need to obtain a permit for your building installation, engineered plans will be provided stamped and sealed for your state and wind/snow load requirements.
Do These Buildings Come With A Warranty?
Well Of course! Each and every metal building for sale with The NC Builders comes standard with a combined 41 years of warranty from the raw steel materials to the craftsmanship behind the installation.
What Size Does My Concrete Slab/Foundation Need To Be?
While your local building authority may require more, we would recommend a minimum size of matching perimeter measurement with the building footprint with a 6" or more perimeter footing.
Can I Order My Metal Building with Insulation?
Insulating your new metal garage is a must in most climates. We offer a thinner, foil-backed, vapor barrier insulation as an available upgrade option but recommend spray foam insulation for the most efficient climate control solution.
