Are anchor bolts included?
No, anchor bolts are to be provided by the contractor pouring the foundation. The stamped drawings provided by Central States show where the bolts need to be placed in order to assist the contractor.
What is included in a Central States Metal Building system?
All the metal framing and metal components (panels, trim, and accessories) for the contracted metal building are included.
Can you price windows, doors, and insulation?
We can price and supply metal building insulation and metal building walk doors. Central States does not currently supply or quote overhead doors or windows.
Does Central States erect the building or do you have a network of builders?
No, Central States does not erect the building and currently does not “recommend” any particular erector. Central States works with a large network of local distributors to fulfill the needs for Metal Building Projects. If you do not currently have a builder, you can reach out to one of our distributors and they may guide you on selecting a contractor.
How is the building delivered and unloaded?
If jobsite delivery is requested, the building will usually be delivered to the jobsite on 2 or more trucks depending on the size of the building and options selected. Example: 1 truck of components, 1 truck of frames , and 1 truck for insulation. Alternatively, Central States will deliver directly to your distributor who will arrange your pick-up/delivery options.
For jobsite deliveries, Central States does not provide unloading of the materials and typically we do not have the material handling equipment on board to offer unloading. Customers requesting jobsite delivery should be prepared with their own material handling equipment on site to unload and erect the building. Your equipment should be able to handle at least 3,500 pounds.
What is the lead time (how long until I get my building)?
Lead times change with market conditions, please contact the Metal Buildings Dept of the Building Services Division. You may call us directly at 1-800-967-2298.
