Characteristics of a quality-made structure

WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING to put up an outbuilding like a barn, garage, or carport, you want to get your investment’s worth with a quality product. In Florida, that means your structure will stand up to the area’s humidity and rainy climate, high temperatures, and annual hurricane season. How do you know when a structure is built to last? Make sure you look for these qualities:

• It’s made from high-quality materials. Our framing is made of heavy-duty 14-guage or 12-guage steel, and the roofing and siding materials consist of 29-guage or 26-guage poly-coated steel. Steel is tough and resists the rotting, cracking, and warping you’ll get with other materials.

• An expert team completes the construction. Our construction team is factory trained and overseen by factory engineers. They are experts in putting up these buildings because it’s all they do!

• Hurricane straps are included. In Florida, your building is only as good as its anchoring. We include anchoring with many three-foot heavy-duty steel screws to keep your garage, barn, shed or other outbuilding in place during the worst weather Central Florida can dish out.

• It comes with a 20-year warranty. You know a building is a quality product when the manufacturer stands behind it with a 20-year warranty! We also have certified options, built from engineer-created designs, which can withstand 130 or 150 mph winds.

If you need a quality building on your home or job site, contact USA Quality Steel Barns & Garages for a custom structure built with pride.
