​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.

​Permit Support

​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.
