How to Determine the Quality of Steel Building Systems

A building needs to check several boxes in order to be the perfect fit, no matter what you plan to use it for.

From being customized to meet your unique needs to be strong and durable enough to endure harsh climates and inclement weather events, the list of qualifications will vary based on your personal situation and intended application.

The popularity of steel buildings is on the rise because they are unmatched in their ability to adapt to and facilitate a vast array of applications and needs. As the demand for steel building continues to rise, more and more Americans find themselves wondering how to differentiate between high-quality steel building systems and subpar offerings.

Luckily, there are certain aspects you can evaluate that will help you determine which steel buildings are better than the rest. Observing these things is a vital step in ensuring you are receiving the best possible metal building—something that will serve you flawlessly for years on end.

To help you identify these characteristics and properly evaluate whether or not a steel building is of high quality, Boss Buildings has put together this handy guide. Whether you are in the beginning phases of your research or on the verge of buying a metal building, consulting this guide before investing in a steel building is a great idea!

Factors that Determine the Quality of Your Metal Building

Chances are, you’re not a metal building expert and aren’t exceptionally interested in the detailed nuances of steel and metal building quality. That’s okay—Boss Buildings is the premier expert in the industry and is here to help.

Rather than bombarding you with technicalities (though, if you’re interested in a more detailed approach to quality, feel free to call on (866) 733-3313), we’ve decided to provide a quick and easy guide to determining quality for the consumer. In other words, this is not a comprehensive list, but it will certainly be enough to get you started and help you weed out any metal building assemblies that are not up to snuff!

Energy Efficiency

Steel buildings are well-known for their energy efficiency. As such, any metal building worth investing in will feature impressive efficiency. While steel buildings are efficient by nature, you should look for options that enhance this innate trait.

For example, see if the building has energy-efficient doors and windows. Ask about the type of insulation used, as well as any other energy conserving materials and features included in the metal building. Energy efficiency is a box that any high-quality metal building should check!

Long-Term Affordability

Any metal building should save you a substantial amount of money in upfront costs compared to traditional building options. However, a high-quality steel building will have features that continue to save your money over the lifetime of the building, not just when you first buy it.

A high-quality metal building will endure harsh weather, resist pests, and otherwise prove to be strong and durable. This means little to no maintenance is required, saving you money and time throughout the years. Traditional buildings and metal buildings of lower quality will not be able to make this same claim.


No, this is not a situation where bigger is better. Instead, it is an evaluation of how effectively space is used. While this may seem like an unimportant point, assessing how well the space of the building and the property on which it sits is used can speak volumes to the care and thought that went into the building’s design and execution.

Wasted space is a sign of poor quality. Look for a building that utilizes its square footage, no matter how large or small, to its maximum potential!
