Steel Frame Buildings
Steel frame buildings have many benefits that make them an excellent choice for construction material.
Steel frame buildings have proven to be more resistant to severe MN, ND, SD, WI, & IA weather such as strong winds, heavy snow fall, and hail. Steel frames are immune to rot, insects, splinters, cracks, settling, and they are fire resistant. Steel framing has the highest strength to weight ratio among building materials, leading to a strong safe building. Pre-engineered steel buildings are easier and faster to construct – saving you time and money in labor.

“We enjoyed working with Brad. We had a totally different idea of what we were going to do before we sat down with him. Brad had such good suggestions that many of them were implemented. The Carpenters did a super job! Everything turned out perfect!”
“Couldn’t be happier with how the project turned out! Everything went great!”
“We have enjoyed working with your representative, Jeff Dunn, and have already mentioned both your building and Jeff’s involvement to a couple of our friends, who may be interested in similar structures in the future.
We also appreciate your affiliation with “The Door Doctor” of Brainerd, Minnesota. Their work, and quality of materials used enhance the overall feel for a well-built structure.”
