Want proof? Just see how we stack up against the competition. Listed below is a side-by-side comparison between our panel overlap, panel crimping, hardware, arch specification, arch material, endwall panel, color options, and panel manufacturing.

Panel Overlap

Rocket Steel Buildings Panel overlap No caulking is required for waterproofing because the last 9″ of panel is smooth allowing the panels to fit snugly together. This makes assembly less difficult and saves you 30-40% on construction time.
Competition Competition's panel overlap The last 9″ of our competitor’s panels is crimped, preventing it from fitting snugly together. This makes it more difficult to assemble because more alignment with drift pins is required adding 30-40% more construction time. Caulking is also required for waterproofing taking up even more time because each overlap requires four rows of caulking to prevent leaks from occurring.

Panel Crimping

Rocket Steel Buildings Panel overlap Crimps are closer together and smaller in depth preventing buckling problems. This adds 25% more strength.
Competition Competition's panel overlap Crimps are farther apart and larger in depth creating buckling problems and a weaker panel.

Hardware

Hear What Our Customers Have to Say

“About six years ago I purchased this steel building and put it up. I put it up myself, and it wasn’t too bad. I’ve got more friends than money, that’s why I put it up myself. The strongest winds we’ve had here are 75 mph, and I had no issues with the buildings what so ever. I couldn’t be happier with the building, money well spent. I think I’m going to get a lot of time out of this building.” Man-cave Dweller, Virginia
