30x40 Metal Building

A 30x40 Metal Building is a popular size for home workshops and commercial garages as well. The most common design for a 30x40 building is to have 2 -20' bays.  You could have one or two large roll up doors along with a man door to allow access for the building.  Whether your planning on using this size building for auto repair, wood working, supply storage or as a maintenance shop, we can help design the building for your needs.

One thing that makes a 30x40 steel building a good choice for a residential work shop or garage is it's size.  Depending on the amount of land you own, you may have to contend with property line setbacks.  The compact footprint of a 30x40 building means that it has a better chance of fitting if space is a concern.  Don't let the size fool you though, it is still roomy enough to make it a very popular choice for many applications.

What could you do with 1,200 square feet of space to work with? I know I could put it to good use by having space to work and not have to move everything around.  Just take a look at this picture.  Wouldn't you hate to work with all this stuff piled up around you?

To be honest, this is really my basement workshop.  I have squeezed everything I can into this 800 square foot space and it drives me crazy.  As you can see stuff is piled everywhere.  I can barely work on one project without having to move everything around just to get to it.  With a 30x40 metal building, I could straighten up everything and have room for my project cars, wood working, storage and more.  I could even install a car lift to make my life a little easier and safer working on all my projects.

I would even have enough space to separate my automotive tools from my wood working tools and be able to work on several projects at the same time.

30x40 steel building FAQ


Can I put up a 30x40 steel building myself?

A handy do-it-yourself person could certainly construct a steel building.  The kit comes with everything you need to put up your building.  The real question is more of a value of your time.  While he have has some customer erect their own buildings, they typically take 3-4 times longer than an experience crew.  What's your time worth to you?

Does the price include concrete and erect?

We are a nationwide building distributor only.  We are not general contractors so we cannot provide services for concrete and erect.  You are best served using a local company for concrete and labor to put up your building.  Depending on your location, we may be able to put you in touch with local companies that other customers have used.

How soon can I get my building?

Just a few years ago, the common answer was 6-8 weeks.  Those time frames have increased and fluctuated wildly over the last couple of years.  Now in October 2022 the common lead time is around 15-18 weeks.  While that may seem like a long time, we often hear of customers having trouble getting their dirt work and foundation/slab poured in that time frame.  Lead times continue to fluctuate depending on supply channel constraints, demand on raw steel materials and a variety of other logistical issues facing steel building manufacturers.

What makes a Renegade Steel Building Different?

PBR panels standard

“PBR” stands for Purlin Bearing Rib. While others may use a standard panel, Renegade uses the “PBR” panel on the roof and walls of our buildings. This gives the system rigidity and weathertightness. Other profiles are available with the purlin bearing system.

Factory Welded Clips

Clips for the roof purlins and wall girts are factory located and welded saving you time when erecting your building.

steel building window framed opening

Framed Openings

One other BIG difference in a Renegade building is that whenever a customer wants a window, we always include a framed opening. This provides a sturdy and secure structure for the window to attach to. It also provides a better fit for weather tightness. Other companies may take the cheap approach and just sell a window that simply screws into the wall panel.
