Why Metal Buildings
Metal building systems have proven time and again to be the most economical use of steel for low-rise, non-residential construction. Trust us. We’ve been doing this since 1966.
Most of what we build is custom, never to be reproduced. Forget about the limitations of stock lengths, widths, or bay spacings. There are optimal designs that help minimize costs while still delivering the design performance required, but some things just can't be put into those boxes. Solving the unique problems that come along with each new build is something that we do everyday. We build limitless styles for endless operational needs. And we provide solutions as much as we provide buildings.
Our advanced standing seam roof systems provide excellent weather resistance, minimal maintenance, and energy efficiency, all at an excellent value. Standing seam roof systems have proven themselves as lifetime products when cared for properly. Never again will you have to factor in a re-roof. With minimal maintenance, a standing seam roof can outlast us all. Third party testing has proven that a Galvalume standing seam roof can exceed 60 years of useable life.
Metal Wall Panels
Our metal wall panels are versatile, attractive, and best of all, economical. A perfect blend of form and function. Pre-painted, single skin metal panel walls are the most economical solution to providing long-term enclosed space in a building project. With finish warranties of 35 years, there is no need to factor in the expense of a repaint every 3-5 years. Using a unique profile and 26- or 24- gauge construction, the CHIEF Standard (CS) and Architectural Panel (AP) wall offerings are guaranteed to please.
Quick to Build
We understand getting your operation up and running is a top priority, and there is no quicker way to make that happen than with a metal building system. At CHIEF, we can help you get into business quicker by minimizing design time and on-site construction. Our network of highly capable Builders are located throughout the US and poised to deliver you the service and the building you need within your schedule.
