A 40x60 Metal Building is one of the most popular sizes in the industry.  2,400 sq ft of open, clear span floor space allows you to organize your space to fit your needs.  Whether your using it for a wood working shop with multiple tools or using it for a home garage to work on your car, truck or motorcycle, you have many options because of this open design.

A 40x60 steel building can be designed with 2-30' bays or more commonly with 3-20' bays.  This can allow for 2, 3 or possibly 4 large doors on a sidewall (60' side) depending on the door opening size. You could also place large doors on the endwall (40' side).

The height of a steel building is often referred to as the eave height or the height where the roof meets the sidewall. The minimum height for a steel building is 10' and can go up from there. Many times, the large door height will dictate the eave height as you typically need 2' minimum clearance above a roll up or panel door. Other items that can neccessitate a taller eave height can be automotive lifts, racking or even just aesthetics.

What could you do with 2,400 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.  When your work area is cluttered, it can be detrimental to your productivity as well as posing a danger to safety.  The picture below is of a basement with about 800 square feet of workspace.  In that space is everything from woodworking to automotive and some general storage thrown in here and there.  With stuff piled everywhere each project requires moving tools around just to get enough space to work.  Over and over everything has to be moved and re-arranged.

With a 40x60 metal building, you could straighten up everything and have room for project cars, wood working, storage and more.  You could even install a car lift to make life a little easier and safer working on cars.

What's included in a 40x60 steel building kit?

Your steel building kit will include the following items:
  • I-beam main frame columns
  • I-beam main frame rafters (typically clearspan unless otherwise requested)
  • Bearing frame end walls (typical)
  • Zee girts and purlins
  • Formed base trim
  • Cee channel jambs and headers for specified framed openings
  • Nuts, Bolts and Washers for assembly
  • Roof panels (PBR typical, Standing Seam Optional)
  • PBR Wall panels
  • Trim
  • Long life panel fasteners
  • Steel walkdoor with 8" frame (when applicable)
  • Mastic and caulk
  • Final stamped engineered drawings

What are you responsible for?

While the kit comes with everything you need for the building, there are still some items that you need to address.
  • Verification of local code requirements along with wind and snow loads  -  While our software pulls up general requirements for a zip code, local municipalities can easily dictate greater load requirements.  When working with customers on a nationwide basis, it is nearly impossible for us to know these requirements for and specific location.
  • Local permits and inspections  -  Talking to your local building permit office will give you the info you need in terms of obtaining your permits to build as well as the requirements for the various inspections you may need to obtain your C.O. (certificate of occupancy)
  • Concrete  -  A pre-engineered metal building requires a solid foundation to support the wind, snow and overall loads of your building.  We only provide the steel building kit so you will need to contract with a local company to pour your footers, piers and slab.
  • Anchor bolts  -  Anchor bolts are part of the foundation and should be supplied by your local concrete contractor.  While the structural engineer designing your building may provide the diameter of the anchor bolt, your location is what determines the length.  Southern states don't have to worry about a frost line whereas norther states may see 24", 36" or even deeper frost lines.  Your local codes may specify this need.
  • Equipment to offload delivery truck  -  Your building comes loaded on a flatbed semi truck.  The driver has no equipment to offload your truck, so you should make arrangements to have a forklift or lull to unload.
  • Labor to erect  -  We only sell the steel building kit - we are not general contractors and don't get involved in the labor to erect.  You will need to find a local company to erect your steel building.
  • Equipment for erecting  -  If you contract an erecting company to put up your building, they should have the equipment necessary to do so.  If you are wanting to do it yourself, a variety of equipment from a forklift or lull, to ladders, drills, saws, levels and cutters may be needed.

40x60 steel building FAQ


Can I put up a 40x60 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 bearing rib illustration

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.

Long Life Screws

Renegade’s long-life, self drilling fasteners are cast aluminum zinc with a EPDM sealing washer help enforce the finish warranties and ensure a long lasting, rust free building. We include these on both the roof and walls.
Steel Building formed base trim illustration

Formed Base Trim

This is a "premium" trim that we include on all our buildings.  The concrete is poured with a squared off edge and the formed base trim is attached around the perimeter.  The wall panel then attaches to this 18 gauge 1 piece system.  We think this "premium" trim is truly the best base option for your building.  That's why we include it standard on all of our buildings.

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.
