FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. HOW MUCH DOES A BUILDING COST?

Just like every major purchase, it depends on what you want your new building to be.  Any "square foot" price will be affected by size, height, accessories, etc.  The larger the building is, the less per "square foot".  The best way is to call in for information and accurate pricing.

2. CAN I GET ENGINEERED DRAWINGS?

Yes, every El Dorado Building Systems building comes complete with a set of engineered structural drawings, stamped by an engineer from your state.

3. HOW ABOUT MY FOUNDATIONS AND CONCRETE?

We suggest that you contact a local foundation expert that is familiar with your location and county/city codes.  They will be able to design a system that is safe and economical at the same time.

4. WHAT KIND OF ACCESSORIES ARE AVAILABLE?

Virtually any accessory or option that you can imagine can be incorporated into your new building.  Windows, doors, skylights, vents, garage doors, porches, etc.

5. WILL THE COUNTY/CITY ALLOW A BUILDING LIKE YOURS?

Some areas have ordinances against size and location, but normally don't restrict the use of pre-engineered steel.  But virtually any area will allow all metal buildings.  Some area's suggest you use a building like ours because of their safety record and code compliance.
