There are dozens of options when it comes to erecting your next structure. We believe steel buildings are the best way to go, which is why we've spent decades building them. Here are three distinct advantages of steel buildings.
A building sits out in the elements and has to hold up to anything that Mother Nature - or human beings - throw at it. Of all the materials that have been used to build structures, few hold up to the earth's torrents like steel buildings. Polar Steel Buildings uses the highest-grade materials and the best coatings to ensure that your steel buildings meet the challenges of any environment, without sacrificing the aesthetics. We can also design a building that, while still primarily using steel, also plays with other materials to give you the professional, modern look you desire for your business or private structure.
The most straightforward way to put it is also the most honest: We won't be beaten on price. No one in our industry can provide the quality and variety of options we can while still maintaining prices that our customers can afford. Affordability and customer service are in our DNA. We believe that you should be able to get a quality, affordable structure to continue seeking your part of life's dream without breaking the bank and being in debt for decades. It's why we can offer such a radical promise – we'll have the best price or your building is free. We believe we are the best in the industry and we stand by it with the industry's leading promise. You won't find a building of equal quality for less - period!
Another advantage of steel buildings is the low level of maintenance necessary. The exteriors hold up well and don't stain, rust, or discolor. When surfaces do get dirty, a simple power wash is usually all that is needed to bring them back to looking new again. The steel roofs don't wear out after ten years as many shingles do, and it takes more than a little hail or wind to cause them damage. It's likely that you'll cut maintenance costs as well as having a beautiful, structurally sound building.

A steel riding area comes with many benefits. Whether for personal use or a professional environment, the addition of a covered/indoor riding area brings benefits for years to come. Here are a few reasons we think you should consider a steel riding area.
Protection from the Elements
A steel riding area has the distinct advantage of being more protected from the elements. The level of protection depends on the choice between an open-air application or an enclosed, indoor riding area. Either way, horse riders can more easily ride in midday heat or when it is raining. Riding in these conditions is more comfortable for the rider and offers the horse protection as well. These options can be beneficial for riding schools because of the extended riding opportunities they can provide.
In addition to protection from the elements, steel riding areas provide the opportunity to offer nighttime riding. The solid construction of our structures makes adding electricity to them easy, even in an open-air build. When lighting is added, you have more riding options. In riding schools, this means you can work with students for more hours, increasing aptitude and adding some "bang for your buck"! Enclosed indoor areas offer the option for climate control as well, increasing the benefits we've been discussing here in many ways.
Hosting or putting on riding shows or performances for students in a training program is improved with a steel riding area. Strategic construction and space formulation will allow you to add bleachers under cover of the structure. This provides for exhibitions to be held in more varied weather conditions. Open-air construction enables the guests to be protected from the elements, and any sun glare is illuminated, making for a better viewing experience. The same benefits are noted in the indoor application by increasing the protection and control of the environment.
In all honesty, a steel riding area adds to the look and feel of professionalism. As easy and inexpensive as they are to add, many places have still not invested. In professional applications, they can be a differentiating factor.
Whether for personal use or a professional environment, a steel riding area adds numerous benefits for both horse and rider. Our buildings are easily assembled with help from your dedicated project manager and come with a guarantee that the process and the product are second to none. We offer quick turnaround on delivering your materials and, by putting your needs first, ensure your satisfaction! Give us a shout and let us help you create the perfect riding experience with a steel riding are from Polar Steel Buildings.

Building new steel garages can be a daunting task. As you envision and prepare for your new garage, we've put together a list of a few things to consider when shopping around for the best deal you can find. You won't find a better deal. Our customer services are the DNA of who we are and how we operate, but a close second is our lowest price guarantee. We will not be beaten on price or quality. Check it out!
Local Codes and Structural Loads
One of the most important things to look for when building steel garages is local legal and environmental requirements. Building codes can sometimes change across varying townships in the same city. When preparing to build your dream garage, you need a company that is capable of - and experienced at - digging into the local laws and ensuring that your building is set up to meet your needs, and the needs of your local municipality. Polar Steel Buildings' dedicated team of professionals will make sure you're taken care of.
In addition to codes, environmental weather considerations need to be taken into account. Living in Canada or the northern part of the U.S. can bring significant load-bearing concerns. In a marine environment, acid salt in the air is a concern and one that will be accounted for in our design. The drawings provided by Polar Steel will be engineer- stamped, showing that all of these requirements have been addressed and taken care of. Your building will be guaranteed safe and secure for decades to come.
Construction permits can be one of the most daunting steps in a new construction project. Dozens of courthouse or county records visits can be frustrating and time-consuming. Because Polar Steel Buildings provides you with a dedicated project manager, you'll have an advocate throughout the whole process walking you through all the steps that need to be taken. Incorrect or insufficient permit approvals can lead to project shutdowns and delays, but we will help you keep that from happening.
It's amazing how many people don't think to ask about insulation on the front end of project planning. Many steel fabricators do not offer insulation, but we do. And our dedicated staff of construction design professionals can help you determine which - if any - insulation strategy you will need. This includes accounting for insulation in the garage door and roof and other unseen areas.
Don't Risk It
You're putting too much time and energy into your "garage-mahal" to compromise on any aspect of construction. Take a few minutes to call one of our super-helpful service team members to inquire more about your dream garage and begin the process of making it a reality.

Fast Build time, no waste = savings
Steel buildings are coming up everywhere and in every corner of America, Canada and the rest of the world. With the way technology is advancing in the prefabricated steel industry, chances are you may look at a building and not even recognize it as a steel structure. Steel buildings are the way to go if you are looking to save a lot of money on construction and are looking to erect the steel building rather quickly.
Saving on Steel Buildings
Steel buildings are pre-engineered before they arrive to you on site. Polarsteelbuildings.com provides a turnkey steel building that is pre-punched, pre-drilled and when the steel building arrives it is a simple easy to build bolt together kit. This means you will have the steel building up and ready for occupancy in 1-30 days from the date it arrives to your site. When you compare that to traditional construction time you can see how the cost saving works here.
Steel buildings by nature of being pre-engineered will certainly have a lower cost when compared to traditional construction and the main reason is the aforementioned bolt together kit construction that we use for our steel buildings. All the major parts of your steel building are pre cut, pre punched and we use automation robotics to achieve assembly of the steel structure. When the steel building is delivered on site, the building is an easy DIY steel building kit that just needs to be bolted together. The experience level needed to build the steel building kit is at a novice level in the construction field. You will save up to 70% of costs when compared to traditional construction.
Do it Yourself, Energy Savings, Insurance Cost and Maintenance
We recommend that any steel building that is 6500 square feet and below be purchased as a do it yourself. There is no need to hire labor or general contractors for these size of steel buildings. With these structures you will save even more money when erecting the steel building.
Polarsteelbuildings.com provides all of our customers with energy saver panels and roof that will reflect up wit 80% of the sun rays and in effect giving you cost saving on cooling and heating your steel building. On top of the energy efficient materials that we use on all of our steel buildings, the way we assemble the building at our factory and the tight fit on all openings and precise fit on site leads to more energy savings. The steel building is designed using our heavy weather design which seals the steel building shut. This will help keep any warm air in when you heat your steel building and any cool air in the steel building when you cool the building saving you money on the HVAC.
Insurance costs are costs that we need to pay no matter what type of structure is put up. But because you are putting up a steel building as opposed to wood or other traditional buildings, you are in line to save a lot of money on your steel building insurance cost. From industry records you should be able to save up to 50% off your insurance costs when you compare a steel building vs traditional construction.
When you compare your steel building vs traditional construction such as a pole barn wood structure, maintenance is a thing of the past with a steel building. A steel building is made to stand the test of time and the material used are rust resistant the paint finishes are high quality sun resistant that come with a 40 year warranty on it. When you compare that steel building vs a wooden structure, you do not have to worry about rotting, sagging, or repainting the building like you do with wood.
Are Steel Building Safe?
Is your steel building strong? Will it stand up to the toughest condition that mother nature has to throw at your steel building? The strength of your steel building, comes from the grade A components used to build your steel structure. We only use 100% American made steel, red iron steel I beam construction is at the center of your steel building. The building is made to withstand Hurricane force winds in excess of 180 miles per hour, as seen in Florida. On the the spectrum of whether, the steel building can also be made to stand massive snow loads in excess of 125 pounds per square feet of snow. The buildings can go North to Canada or Alaska and you can rest assured that your steel building will be safe to inhabit in the harshest conditions.
Another safety mechanism the comes with all steel buildings manufactured by polarsteelbuildings.com is the rust resistant anchor bolts. The 100% American Made components are made so that they don't expand or contract in moisture. They are made to take on any climate it is thrown at them. Besides the rust resistant bolts the building is going to virtually be fore resistant. The steel building components are made to withstand very hot fires and provide the steel building with added safety. You will sleep better knowing that your steel buildings chances of going down in a fire are very low. The steel building will also contain a fire and stop that fire from spreading because the materials the building is made from are fire retardant.
Can I Move or Expand a Steel Building?
The beauty of purchasing a pre-engineered steel building is the flexibility the steel building will offer you. Because of the way the steel building is assembled at our factory and its modular way of being built, the steel building is very easy to expand and and add more square feet to the steel building. to expand your steel building all you have to is remove one end wall and add to that end wall to make your steel building larger as needed.
Lets assume you sold your property or purchased a property elsewhere and you are interested in relocating your steel building. This is possible and a very easy thing to do. Any prefabricated steel building can be dismantled, and relocated.
Other things to consider when looking at Steel Buildings vs Traditional Construction are the environmental effects on the planet and your community. , steel buildings or metal buildings are considered 100% recyclable and green when you compare to other traditional construction methods. Material waste is another consideration, with a steel building your waste is a minimal amount which for a steel building is usually about 1.5% vs wood for lumber. A typical steel building can be made from recycles as compared to about 65 trees for a wooden building that is 2500 square feet.
