Top 3 benefits of building with galvalume® steel

Galvalume® Steel Buildings

According to United States Steel Corporation, "U.S. Steel GALVALUME® Steel Sheet is carbon steel sheet coated with aluminum-zinc alloy by a continuous hot-dip process. A small but important addition of silicon is included in the coating alloy. It is added not to enhance the corrosion performance, but to provide good coating adhesion to the steel substrate when the product is roll-formed, drawn, or bent during fabrication."

Arch Building Kit Configuration

The best way to plan for the design of your arch building kit is to determine what you are going to use it for. The application can sometimes dictate the configuration or setup of the structure which better accommodates your needs.

For example, an open-ended arch building kit may be suitable for storing hay, grain or other commodities. A Quonset building kit with one end open can be used for covering your landscaping equipment, small tractors, vehicles, and ATV’s. The building kit that comes with both factory supplied steel ends is known as an enclosed structure and is the most common configuration.

Configuring Your Arch Building Kit

Prefabricated Quonset Buildings

Many prefab steel building customers are forced to settle for a smaller size structure getting less building than they really need as expensive contractors and skilled labor eat up their budget. Archcore DIY Quonset kits make it possible to afford a larger building for less money. Our prefabricated metal arch buildings are completely precut, preformed, and predrilled right at the manufacturing plant.

Archcore has the ultimate do it yourself building solution. Unlike those supposedly simple kits you may have unfortunately experienced for furniture, swing sets and recreational products, we offer a very simple standardized assembly. Our Quonset hut arch panels in the q-model are the same width, come in only two lengths and use only one size nut and bolt hardware for the entire building, you will never have to sort through different sized fasteners.

Since there are not any heavy beams or posts you save even more on expensive equipment rentals for cranes and forklifts. On most of our steel garages and workshop building models simple ladders, some rope and makeshift scaffolding allow you to erect the building using only general laborers.

Custom Steel Buildings

If you want to add unique features to accentuate your dream house or enhance your structure, you’re in business. It’s very simple as the factory endwalls are optional. Many customers furnish their own decorative endwalls by simply studding up the endwalls and affixing vinyl siding, brick veneer, stucco or wood accents. This offers a super low-cost alternative to give your building a creative personalized appearance yet keep you within your budget.
