Certified vs. Non-Certified Metal Buildings

Metal buildings can be certified or non-certified, but it’s not always easy to tell the difference between the two on the outside. Certification doesn’t really the change the exterior look of your building – the real differences are inside. In order to decide whether a certified or uncertified building is right for you, it’s important for you to understand the difference.

What does it mean to say that a metal building is certified? A certified building is professionally designed and engineered to withstand established ratings for wind speeds and/or snow loads. In certain locations where building permits are required, only a certified metal building is considered to be eligible for meeting the needed requirements. In other areas, all buildings are required to be certified, regardless of whether a building permit is needed or not.

More About Non-Certified Buildings

If you live in an area where building permits are not required for metal structures, then certification may not be required, either. In that case, you have the option of simply going with a non-certified carport, garage, barn, or other metal structure. The main advantage of choosing not to certify is that you’ll save a little money on the price of your building. And since non-certified metal buildings are still made with sturdy steel, they are a more reliable choice than any structure made of wood or aluminum.

Why Certified Buildings Are a Better Choice

You should also know that there are some real advantages that come with electing to go with a certified building. Certified metal structures come with better engineering, and are designed to include more support braces, screws, and anchoring than uncertified buildings. So even if certification isn’t required where you live, there’s still a greater peace of mind that comes with owning a certified metal structure. Why? Because you’ll know that it’s really made to last!

Choose THE BOSS for Your Best Metal Building

Whether you’re looking for a certified or non-certified metal building, Boss Buildings is here to take care of whatever you may need. But regardless of what your local regulations may or may not require, we strongly encourage you to consider choosing a certified steel structure. While certifying your building will add just a little bit to your final price tag, the security and peace of mind that certification offers is more than worth it in the long run. If you’re in the market for a metal building anyway, why settle for anything less than the best building available? And the best buildings available from THE BOSS are our certified metal buildings!
