Steel Buildings Components/Accessories
Which base trim option should I choose?
The base trim that you choose for your Steel Buildings will depend on your building's needs and the type of foundation you use. Although we strongly recommend a notched base, we do offer several additional base trim options to suit your specific needs. Please see base conditions for more helpful information and illustrations.
What type of windows do you offer?
We offer a selection of windows for your building. To learn more about what's available please visit the accessories section of our website.
What comes with the doors and windows?
All of our doors and windows come with the required hardware to install them into your Steel Buildings. We provide the framing, trim, and flashing for a proper installation.
How do I know where to place my windows and doors?
Windows and walk doors are generally "field located." You, as the customer, will pick the location, cut the corresponding panel to size and proceed to mount the doors and windows. If you choose to include a large number of windows or doors we may ask you to give us your proposed location to ensure proper building bracing.
How do I attach my doors and windows?
All of our walk doors are self-framing, so they include the necessary items to mount them on your building. Our windows are secured by screwing the window trim directly into the building. This is also known as self-flashing. If you live in a high wind area, please talk to one of our design consultants about additional door and window mounting options.
What is the R-Value of your insulation?
The r-value of our insulation depends on the thickness you choose. It will vary between R-10 and R-19. Please see the r-value section of our website for more helpful information. When getting a Steel Buildings price you can choose many insulation options for the roof and walls.
