PWS vs Kits

PWS vs Kits

It is very tempting to order one of those steel building kits for a little more than pocket change. But when you think through the actual building process, you will realize there are a lot of important – and unavoidable – costs before you will actually have a usable building.

More often than not, the all-inclusive PWS steel building will cost the same or less than the kit building when ALL the costs are included.

The Kit is Just 25% to 30% of the Total Cost

PWS has had a LOT of experience designing, making and installing steel buildings, and we have found that each of the 4 main parts of the installation will cost roughly 25% of the total. With typical kits, you only pay the ¼ that’s for the building steel, delivered to your driveway or lot.

Who Does the Rest of the Work to Make a Building?

After you purchase a kit building, you are on your own. You have two real options for installing a steel building kit:

  1. Do it yourself: if you are one of those rare people who knows foundation engineering, concrete installation, electricity, and so forth, you might succeed in installing your own building properly. The time and tools it takes are extra, of course.
  2. Be a contractor: Get the permits, find the subs, organize the project, and get people to show up on time. Then, inspect their work (or hire someone to do it).
Does “Low Cost” Equal “High Quality”?

The appeal of the typical steel building kit is its low upfront cost. But it is important to look at the quality of the building you get as well as its basic price, even if you are going to do the installation yourself.

PWS steel buildings are made from premium quality materials that will truly last. PWS roofs are designed to shed water effectively, with joints and gable ends that add strength and beauty. Each building is designed to merge strength with flexible shape and interior finishing options.

From a basic canopy on up, the PWS building is the superior, premium option.
