Real-world residential steel building pricing from BuyerZone buyers
We regularly survey BuyerZone users to ask how their purchases went. We've used their responses to provide a sampling of actual prices paid for residential steel buildings.
Steel building pricing is typically based per square foot and includes materials, foundation, construction, and delivery of parts. Some vendors may charge separately for materials and foundation.
Many factors can impact pricing for residential steel buildings, such as insulation, interior finishing, add-ons such as windows, doors, and skylights, unusual designs, and labor costs for installation.
Be sure to read the contract carefully before the builders begin construction. It should detail the job specifics as well as the builder's responsibilities. Keep a close eye on which materials will be used in the construction. The builder should provide specifics such as brand name, model numbers, and the amount of raw materials required. If they need to make a substitute, make sure it's of equal or greater value and doesn't add to your costs.
