Steel building purchase

I've purchased 3 buildings from them over the past 5 years. Great company to deal with. Buildings are easy to assemble. The one I bought for my cottage was a 20 x 24. It went up in 3 days. The other 2 were for my construction company. Highly recommend them

Provided a 20x28' Steel building delivered to our remote location in Northern BC.

The building came wrapped extremely well, with all the bits a pieces needed, and few spare parts just in case, follow on support was excellent, they even called me to make sure everything was going as planned. Thanks folks, will definitely get my next steel structure from Future Buildings.

Boat storage shed

Product went together pretty easy. Minor hiccup with back wall, but John in tech support walked me through it. Overall, happy with my building.

Futur Steel does not hounor their 30 year Guarantee

Purchased a 18X32 building 14 years ago. The roof is leaking. The 16 top panels need to be changed. Futur Steel will not honour their Guarantee and are asking $4,000. to change the roof panels with stronger steel. Furthemore, the gauge recommended on their Engennering drawing does not match the gauge on the panels they send you. If the proper gauge had been provided in the initial set up, the roof after 14 years may not be full of holes. If you try to replace a roof with a lower gauge panel, it's almost impossible becuase The holes in the new panels do not mach. I would not recommend this Company .

New Garage

Bought a 25x30 quonset with a pitched roof that I'm putting up when the snow melts. Got the delivery last week and it's better looking than I was thinking it would be. The manuals seem pretty straight forward and I called a couple times with questions and they were always helpful. Looking forward to putting this thing up.

Heavy Duty Car Port

Needed something strong to cover a patio. I found what I wanted on this site http://www.theultimatecarport.com/ which I learned is part of Future Steel Buildings when I called. The pictures looked sharp, and I was pleased to see it looked just as good in person. Assembly was painless, all I needed was an electric drill and some post hole diggers. If you want the best product for your money I'd recommend getting one of these carports. You can get stuff for cheaper, but this thing is under warranty for 30 years. I'd personally rather pay more for steel then replace wood or aluminum.

From Canada to the UK Future Buildings all the way!

My first impression of Future actually wasn't that great. I found the first gentleman I talked to be pushy and boastful. However, after shopping around I ended up coming back to them and since then I couldn't be happier. The building was simple to erect, and while at first I kicked myself in the butt for buying the base plates when I came upon an opportunity to move to the Manchester and bring the building with me I was thrilled. It cost a lot to ship the thing over, but I saved a heck of a lot of money over buying a building here. In fact, steel buildings are hard to come by here from what I've seen. Anyways, glad I could bring my little piece of Canada with me to show the Brits how we do it in the Great White North.

My future wife likes Future Steel ;)

My fiancee was a little upset when I first bought the quonset, but now that I'm always out there and out of her hair she's happy. I built my house a few years ago and it was a nightmare so I'm glad setting up my garage was hassle free. The building went up quick and I was glad not to have to deal with any contractors this time!!!

Man Cave came true

Wanted a place to shoot pool and drink beer with the boys. Saw the ad, called 'em up, and bought one. Simple, no bs. Really surprised by how good the insulation is and she looks nice. No problem setting it up either.

steel building

I bought the building in 2013. I just put it up this fall. that when well until I put the end walls in. I was missing one curved angle. I called future buildings 1 800 number and got a sales rep (Kyle Spellman). I told him the spot I was in. you have 90 days to report a part missing and its been 3 years. he told me that he would do his best to help me. I couldn't finish the building without that piece. I live in nova scotia and in less then 2 weeks the piece was on my door step and I finished the building today. thank you Kyle.
