Versatile Metal Buildings for Business & Community

What are the benefits of metal buildings for commercial use?

Commercial metal buildings in the Midwest have become extremely popular for many reasons:

  • Affordable 

    Metal post-frame buildings are generally less expensive than stud frame or masonry builds.

  • Quick

    Move into your new commercial steel building up 30X faster than other construction types.

  • Design Options

    Choose any shape, size, color, style, and finish. The options are nearly endless.

Additional benefits of commercial steel structures include the fact that they are constructed on a very strong and supportive frame, as the vertical posts are mounted either onto a foundation or buried into the ground, and the horizontal posts are stationed across the entire structure. This building style gives commercial steel buildings immense strength and durability.

Also, the poles in commercial pole buildings are made of wood, which, being a renewable resource, is very environmentally friendly. It even removes the carbon dioxide from the air, which greatly contrasts against other materials that actually harm our atmosphere. The pieces of wood that are used to build post frame constructions are rather large, which obviously brings great strength but also requires fewer members of wood, also reducing the building materials and laborers. This type of commercial building construction will reduce your labor costs, as well as your supply costs because wood is less expensive than other materials such as brick and steel.

Another advantage of commercial post-frame construction is the options for expansion and creativity that it provides you. A post-frame building allows for easy and versatile construction after the frame is built. The frame can be assembled fast and efficiently, especially by our experienced construction crews at Greiner Buildings. Certain finishing features can easily be added afterward, such as extra doors, windows, decks, porches, and other extensions to your commercial building.
