"I found SMBK online while I was searching around and I'm sure glad I did. The sales team was very helpful and the cost was great. I considered a pole barn but the quality and price was nothing compared to SMBK. The process was simple and the building was easy to erect."
"We are very pleased with the quality of our SMBK building. We were impressed with blue prints and how detailed they were and so easy to follow. We put this building up ourselves with the help of a couple friends and neighbors. The staff was there to answer any questions we had. They helped us through the whole process. I know we will enjoy the building for many years to come."
"I specifically avoided buying a cheap, low quality building on purpose. I'm very satisfied with the quality, it's a nice, strong building. All parts were delivered and fit together without any needed adjustments. It looks great too! Overall satisfied with the building and the customer service I received."
"I'm very happy I decided to purchase an SMBK steel building. I am very happy with the quality and in fact I receive many compliments from all who see it for the first time. My crew got my building up quickly and with no problems. Thank you SMBK for your great product and help in designing my building."
"I'd like to commend Kyle on his help on my steel building. He was on the spot on every detail of the building he was honest and accurate on everything that he promised, he was totally honest and prompt. SMBK makes one hell of a building. On a scale of 1-10, I'd rate my experience a 12. I was very satisfied."
"We are very pleased with the quality of our building! My husband & I spend a lot of time together in our building. He does metal work & welding, I enjoy jewelry making and stone polishing. We love how sturdy, secure and cozy it feels and the insulation keeps it pleasant to work in. We really love that our building is American Made!"
"First impressions are everything! The salesman I talked to was very helpful and informative. I had called 2 other steel building companies before deciding to go with SMBK and I did not feel comfortable spending that much money over the phone with anyone other than SMBK. They also offered the best value. I got the biggest building at the best price and the quality is second to none. SMBK delivered exactly what they promised and there were no surprises."

While most pre-engineered metal buildings are similar in design and purpose, there are plenty of ways to cut corners. Price and weight can be saved in various ways including; primary framing, secondary framing, bracing, panel gauge, and many more. SMBK takes pride in having the absolute best quality building system available. BAR NONE.
Engineering & Design
Per the ASCE 7-10 (American Institute of Steel Construction) steel members are designed to carry a very specific load. It is up to the professional engineer to determine what percentage of the max load each member will support. As a standard, we only load to 80% of the design maximum. The end result is a much stronger, heavier building that is more capable of withstanding extreme weather events. Many companies that are looking to cut corners design to a percentage of 100 or even higher, resulting is a lighter (and therefore a cheaper) building. It is buildings like these that fail in heavy snow or wind events.
This is the process of designing each structural piece of steel, ensuring purlin and girt clips line up perfectly to the corresponding punch patterns in the framing and calculating the amount of material like screws and closures. SMBK details all buildings and not in some other country as many competitors do. Our team works together and speaks the same language, allowing for better communication and understanding of the product.
We will definitely not leave a wall inadequately braced. Regardless of what other metal building companies tell you, panel shear bracing, torsional bracing, or strap bracing is never sufficient, ever! If cable or rod bracing will not work in a side wall due to openings, we will use a portal frame to supply necessary bracing. If a rigid frame is needed, we won't lessen our buildings with a rod to frame brace. You will receive the necessary iron to get the job done correctly!
