Steel Buildings

What are steel buildings? Glad you asked, there are many different structures that people refer to as a steel or metal building. It can be anything from a "pole barn" to an aluminum frame garage up to what we sell, which is a "Red Iron" all steel building.

While some of the "other" buildings may include metal panels or aluminum frames, they are not the same caliber as a building that uses heavy gauge red iron I-beams for the main support structure with 26 gauge panels on the roof and walls. Renegade only sells this type of sturdy, engineered and certified American made building. Nothing else compares to the quality and value.

The quality Metal Building that we offer

The frame of the building is comprised of steel I-beams for the columns and rafters and steel secondary members for wall girts, roof purlins and framed openings. The mainframe columns are engineered to be anchor bolted to the concrete foundation. We utilize 26 gauge metal panels for the roof and walls with even thicker material available. This is commonly referred to as a Pre-Engineered, Red Iron Steel Building.

Wood frame building sold by other companies
Not sold by Renegade

The structure of this building is comprised of wood poles placed in the ground, wooden girts & purlins, and wooden trusses. Many times, thinner 29 gauge metal panels are used for the panels.  The wooden poles are more flexible allowing the building to move or sway in the wind.  This movement can have adverse effects on the structure and weather seal.

Cheaper arch building sold by other companies

A rounded or arch style building with no internal framing similar to the old military style buildings. There is no internal support as the arch style of the panels create a self supporting structure. This design has limitations on widths and the radius design decreases usable internal wall space.

This style building uses an aluminum square tube for the building structure. The building can be placed on concrete or gravel with nothing more than a mobile home anchor. Typically, thinner 29 gauge metal panels are used to sheet the building.

Steel building systems serve a variety of uses such as a work shop in the back yard, a barn for farm equipment, and horse riding arenas. Many auto service centers utilize our buildings for their facility as well as industrial spaces for manufacturing and warehousing.  The same quality design and materials are used regardless of the use of the building.

Recently, many customers have looked to us for a home utilizing our building.  The clear span frame allows you to design your floor plan in virtually any configuration you would like.  There are also many options available to dress up the exterior to turn a metal building into your home.

You can trust Renegade to take care of your needs!

What our customers are saying about their experience...

“We at Wildcat Volunteer Fire Department are very pleased with our Renegade building. Everything about the project has been on schedule and on budget. Thanks in part to Renegade, we had trucks in the new station 4 months after our original station was destroyed by a tornado in April of 2011. I would highly recommend Renegade to anyone interested in a metal building.”

“Thank you so much for all you did for us. You made our purchase of this steel building so easy. I know that we weren’t the easiest customers. It took a long time for us to make up our minds. We’re so glad that we got to work with your people.”

T. Shoffner, TN

Being in the building business I have built my share of buildings in central and eastern North Carolina. This past year we ordered and have completed a 40,000 sf that Renegade Steel helped design and fabricated for us. This project was complete success largely due to Renegade Steel.

Frequently Asked Question

  • Steel building vs wood frame

    While wood frame buildings may appear more cost effective on the front end, you have to examine the entire scope of the project. Steel buildings have several advantages like shorter build times, certified engineered to your area wind and snow loads, and no wood to rot or termites to deal with to name a few.
