How to Build a Garage on a Budget


As much as steel buildings are the most cost effective building options available, it is still a pretty big investment that requires some great budgeting in order to get the job done. There are plenty of ways and features that ensure that you will stay on budget throughout your construction process so that you’re not left with a half-completed project or you don’t go severely in debt trying to complete it. The great thing about steel structures is just how budget-friendly they are!

Lower Construction Costs

One of the best things about steel structures in general is how much cheaper the construction costs are. Typically with buildings made from other materials, the labor and specialized contractor costs are some of the biggest expenses in the entire project. These additional costs can often add thousands of dollars to any project. Our quality steel buildings are able to be erected with the use of general contractors, and in much less time than using materials like wood or concrete. These parts of our structures are easily bolted together once all of the pieces reach your build site, and you won’t need tons of special equipment to get the job done. Even if you call in reinforcements in the form of a contracting company, the process itself will take a much shorter time than building with other materials; so a project that might have required weeks or months of paid labor can be completed in a matter of days, which is another way the costs can be kept down.

Built To Last

Another great thing about steel structures is that they are exceptionally durable and built to last for years – even decades! The nature of steel is that it’s a strong material that can stand up to all kinds of conditions from extreme weather to everyday wear and tear. Our buildings come with engineering to last for years, as well as 40 year warranties that cover limited rust-through perforation as well as paint coatings. Unlike other structures that might be just as strong, steel buildings don’t have any hidden maintenance needs that would require continued treatment. A structure made from wood, for example, is susceptible to pests like termites as well as moisture damage and decay – all things that can weaken the structure and even destroy it completely. These are factors that you won’t have to worry about or consider when it comes to steel buildings. For other structures, there are features that you might have to replace every 5 to 10 years, like roofing, paints or problems that were not treated early enough that progress into larger issues.

Financing & Loans

Just like a construction project, steel falls under the qualifications for financing and loans from most banks or private companies. In some cases, you may even be eligible for tax breaks and other incentives for buildings with steel, as it classifies as a “green building.” At Olympia Steel Buildings, we can guarantee that you will get our very best pricing and even with the rising costs of steel, we will remain one of the best possible building options for property owners on a a budget.
