Yes, we single source all of our materials unlike others that may have many parts from different sources. Q.) What is hot-dipped galvanizing? A.) The hot-dipped procedure is for the primary frames and columns of buildings used for ocean or salt applications.       The steel is taken to a separate facility and completely submerged in our galvanizing tanks. Q.) Do you have “distressed sales buildings” or cancelled buildings sitting on the warehouse floor? A.) Very seldom. This would only happen if someone put a deposit down and then later cancelled the project.       The building would have specific wind and snow load designs and would be restricted as to where it was       sold. It would not be sitting in our warehouse. Q.) Do factories employ “high pressure” sales people? A.) No, high pressure sales people work for independent sales organizations. Check these companies out on under “   company name lawsuits or complaints”.     American Steel Buildings F.A.Q. - Agricultural - Aircraft Hangars - Automotive - Boat Storage - Church Buildings - Commercial/ Retail - Custom Design - Equestrian - Manufacturing - Mini-Storage - Office Buildings - Personal Garage - Pre-Engineered - Recreational - Warehouses Roof Panels PBR Double-Lok Retro-R Craftsman Lok-Seam Wall Panels PBR PBA PBU Insulated Panels Liner Panels Color Charts Ultra-Dek Batten-Lok Super-Lok Traditional Shadow-Rib Nu-Wall Primary - Gable Symmetrical - Gable Unsymmetrical - Single Slope - Lean-To Secondary - Purlins - Girts - Eave Struts - Base Condition - Building Design - Quote Request - Canopies - Eave Trim - Framed Openings - Insulation - Louver Vents - Mansards/ Facades - Overhead Doors - Parapet Walls - Partition Walls - Purlin Extensions - Roof Vents - Skylights/ Wall-Lights - Sliding Doors - Walk Doors - Windows Home > F.A.Q.
