The advantage in prefab steel buildings is how you can drastically shorten construction time over a traditional building. Another advantage is the ease in assembling our prefab steel buildings. Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or professional builder, all that is normally required to assemble our prefab steel buildings is general construction skills. If you prefer to work with a local licensed general contractor, ask us about our approved builder list. When you want it done right and by someone who is a professional, we can help.
Our steel building frames come in all shapes and sizes. Perka steel buildings commonly are built with interior heights of 15’ and up. A prefab steel building is perfect for enclosing large, open spaces, like a warehouse, barn, riding arena, church, home or industrial building.
Steel buildings can be as small as a 10’ X 20’ shed or as large as 150’ wide. To get beyond 150’ wide, steel buildings require interior columns at regular intervals. This type of construction beyond 150’ wide is called “modular” steel building. Perka’s factory is equipped to design and engineer any shape or sized prefab steel building.
Do you have a special steel building need? Most prefab steel building manufacturers only offer you a size, location of doors and windows and pitch of the roof, all served in a square box. Perka’s prefab steel buildings offer much more flexibility for customization. Whether it’s an arched truss, special roof or a building on an odd lot, there’s nothing Perka’s engineers can’t design and manufacture. The interior is easy to work with due to Perka’s use of wood purlins and girts.
Did you know that steel prefab buildings are less expensive? This is because they are less finished on the inside. A very basic steel building can be built for as little as $15 to $25 per square foot. More finished metal buildings are usually $20 to $30 per square foot and extensive customized buildings with brick facades, unusual shapes or complicated construction can reach $40; our Perka Library offers more on the subject in comparing steel prefab building bids.

Prefab steel buildings have improved appearances in recent years. A steel prefab building can be constructed with wood, steel, brick, or stucco exteriors.
