The need for sturdy and easy-to-build buildings has risen in Florida. A lot of benefits have been associated with sturdier metal buildings. Metal buildings are pretty resistant to destruction by rodents and termites. Treated metal buildings are also resistant to rust, which is the most noticeable impediment to metal buildings.


Metal buildings have a firm anchorage on the ground, with strong beams and poles, which makes them able to resist destruction from strong winds and other harsh weather conditions. Increase in property value, and land owners have engaged in a search to find cost-effective ways to build structures for both storage and revenue generation. The timing of the hurricane season is another factor that drives many Florida residents to construct metal buildings that will protect their valuables from destruction. 

Installation of metal buildings can be approached in two ways. The Turnkey methods and the DIY carport method. The Turnkey carport building method involves the owner hiring an installation company. The company can either come with a prefabricated structure and install it themselves or come with parts of the carport and join them while on the ground. The DIY carport involves buying and installing the carport by yourself as the landowner. While the Turnkey method is more expensive, efficient, and eases work, the DIY approach is cheaper and tiresome. While on a budget, consider using the DIY carport method.

Do I Need a Permit for a Metal Building?

Just like any other construction and building, metal buildings require permits. However, the permits may vary from state to state. The regulations for a metal building in Florida differ from other states due to its less predictable and hectic weather conditions. 

To begin with, companies that build metal buildings must ensure that the buildings are up to standard A653 of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). This is inclusive of the structural steel components needed to be in compliance with the International standards S100-14 or ANSI/AISC 360-11.

The building must also have a fire sprinkler system that has passed the National Fire Protection Association independent test. 

Other regulations are that the metal buildings must have access doors, and if they are not climate controlled from the inside, they must have windows at least two feet from the exterior wall outlets. 

To prove that your building meets the required building code standards is a multi-step process that needs you to budget some time and money for it. Begin by acquiring a building permit. To get a permit, you must have your blueprints available for submission. After submission to the local authorities, apply for the permit. This will attract some fees. A review of the plans and documents will be done, then a building compliance review and a review of the zoning compliance will follow. Plan review will be the final stage then issuance of the building permit will be done.

Safe Metal Building in Florida, the Lightning Capital of the U.S.

Florida experiences harsh weather conditions, and sometimes, they are unpredictable. The state gets more lightning strikes than any other state in the U.S. There are 1.4 million lightning strikes in Florida every year, which has led to Central Florida being dubbed ‘Lightning Alley.’ Florida records more deaths due to lighting than all other U.S. states combined. In addition to the effects of the seismic activity, the state experiences strong winds that sweep fast. Florida has therefore introduced strict regulations and codes that guide construction to aid in curbing impending dangers of lightning to buildings.

In a lightning storm, most buildings are affected; hence, lighting arrestors are erected. However, a more efficient building for such an environment is a metal garage. Well-grounded metal garages are the best construction method over all other forms of construction. The steel frames harmlessly and easily conduct lightning to the ground, unlike wood and stone, which resist lightning.

We are always here to offer help.

Building and construction can be hectic, especially if you do not have someone who is guiding you on the best practices for building. Coming up with metal garages, especially the DIY method, may be challenging. 

Technical assistance is a necessity in successfully erecting your metal garages. There are several procedures and how to follow them to achieve the best results. Lack of information may ultimately affect the execution of the plan. Installation of lights, painting, decoration, landscaping, plumbing and roofing are some of the challenging areas that would need you to consult a lot. 

While building could be challenging, getting the approvals and following the law in building is another major challenge. A customer may not be well versed in building and construction knowledge. This means that they may fail to observe the building and construction laws and regulations. 

Steel and Stud offer technical assistance to ensure that you develop excellent custom metal buildings. We also provide consultation services to help you get the approvals for building your metal garages. We have a team of legal officers who assist in the whole process of getting approvals and permits.
