We are often asked why should we use Salsa Steel Corp. Our answer is because we will save you money every time. Most engineers over-design metal building foundations 25-200%. Guess who pays for that extra concrete? (YOU DO!) We don't stop at the first answer that works. We optimize every foundation for every building. We never reuse any design. Each building has a unique design. Plus we guarantee that you will have your foundation design with 10 days or less!

Cost vs. Installed Cost PDF Print E-mail

Many times I find people making valuable purchasing decisions based on cost alone with total disregard to installed cost. For example a 40' x 60' x 16' tall building with a wind post may cost around $14,000.00 but a building with a wind bent for lateral bracing may cost $14,750.00. They figure the prices are close therefore go with the cheaper bid. However the additional concrete on the wind post may cost as much as 5-6 times the savings. ALWAYS ASK YOUR METAL BUILDING COMPANY IF THEY ARE USING WIND COLUMNS IN YOUR METAL BUILDING.
