When it comes to selecting a prefab metal building for your business, warranty protection is everything. If a company isn’t willing to stand behind its materials and work over the long haul, that says a lot about the quality you can expect. On the other hand, if a provider offers a long-term warranty, you can be sure they are confident in the quality and durability of their work.
In construction matters, warranties typically state that the materials are of good quality, that the work is performed to certain standards, and that the project is fit for its intended purpose. That said, since warranty terms greatly differ depending on the provider, it’s important to choose a company that’s willing to stand behind its work for years to come.
According to Travis McCain of Capital Steel Industries, his company is uniquely positioned to offer long-term warranties due to the superior durability of the structures they build.
“While most steel companies offer warranties, they don’t always extend beyond 12 months,” said McCain. “At Capital Steel, we are proud to offer iron-clad, long-term warranties. Since our buildings are made to last, we are able to provide long-term guarantees. In fact, we are so confident in our work, we’re happy to stand behind them for decades.”
Capital Steel Industries prefab metal buildings include comprehensive warranties that come standard on all I-Beam and C-Channel structures. This includes a 50-year guarantee on structural components, a 40-year guarantee on paint, a 25-year guarantee on Galvalume roofs, and a 20-year guarantee on standing seam roofs.
This sort of warranty protection is designed to inspire confidence in customers while enhancing the Capital Steel brand, which is quickly becoming synonymous with quality and durability.
“Since a lot of steel companies don’t have a brand image to protect, they only offer a one-year manufacturer’s warranty,” said McCain. “At Capital Steel, we are committed to protecting our reputation for delivering the most durable, versatile, and quality prefab metal buildings in America. That’s why we offer the industry’s most comprehensive warranty protection. We’re also well-positioned to stand the test of time, so customers enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing we will be around to back our warranties should the need ever arise.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the case with every steel building provider. In fact, it’s not uncommon for companies to escape their warranty obligations by going out of business.
“Many people are surprised to learn that their warranties may become useless if the provider is forced to close up shop,” said McCain. “If a steel company goes out of business due to a lawsuit, insolvency, bankruptcy or bad business practices, they won’t be around to back up their warranties. This is why it’s so important to work with steel companies that have a reputation for doing quality work. At Capital Steel, we’re proud to offer the highest quality prefab metal buildings. We’re also a debt-free company, which positions us to thrive for generations to come.”
Unfortunately, many business owners don’t notice problems with their prefab metal buildings right away. By the time they do see a problem, their warranties have often expired. That’s why it’s important to work with a reputable provider that offers long-term warranty protection.
Whether it’s a superficial aesthetic issue or a significant structural problem, you shouldn’t have to pay for a defective build. A good warranty ensures that you are shielded from unwieldy expenses while clearly demonstrating a steel company’s confidence (or lack thereof) in its product and workmanship.
