Steel Building Assembly – Estimated Installation Costs
While we design our metal buildings for DIY installation, we certainly realize that this type of project is not for everyone. A good amount of customers opt to have a handyman or contractor install the metal building. The prices below reflect estimates on what a good handyman will charge you for the following building kit installations. We have not estimated all sizes but do list some common ones. Not all handymen are created equal – do your due diligence and find the right one you can build a relationship with.

If you are completely inexperienced or for whatever reason do not want to erect your steel building kit by yourself or with the help of a good handyman, you should consider getting installation estimates from a licensed and bonded contractor who enjoys a good reputation.
If you are speaking to a professional for installation of your building kit, the will probably want to get an idea of what the job entails.

Your installer should be able to get a pretty good idea of the project from this. They can also feel free to call us with any questions.
Building contractors and handymen in your area should also be able to provide you with accurate estimates, based on your address, site conditions, exact building size, etc. We recommend you obtain a quote in writing before authorizing work to begin.
