Metal buildings are no longer like your grandpa’s old flimsy metal toolshed. Today, we use the latest construction and metal technology to provide our customers with a sturdy building, good enough to use for almost any purpose.
From a farm feed store to a commercial premises or family home. Obviously, the price varies depending on the amount and grade of steel used in the product and the accessories you choose for a functional and attractive prefab.
A 30×100 metal building kits cost $30,000 to $90,000, depending on design complexity and accessories. Generally, this is cheaper than conventional construction methods, giving your business substantial savings on its new premises.
30×100 Metal Building Costs*
Buying a prefabricated steel structure from Rex Metal Buildings couldn’t be easier. You can erect our designs easily and quickly with some DIY knowledge, a few friends, and some simple tools.
However, if you find this a problem, we recommend hiring contractors skilled in this type of work. Or, ask about our turnkey package, where we take the worry off your hands and manage the installation and erection from design to handing over the keys.
Comparing like-for-like, metal prefab buildings are cheaper and more cost-effective than structures using conventional construction methods.
Generally, depending on the configuration of the building, and the type of doors and windows, you can expect to pay from $10-$30/sq.ft. Therefore, you can buy a steel prefab building of 3,000 sq.ft. for $30,000 to $90,000.
We recommend a concrete slab as a foundation for most of our prefab buildings. However, every construction site is different, as are the local building codes.
Therefore, you need a structural engineer to do the math and design the foundation, taking into account the local geology, the weight of the building, and local weather factors.
Expect to pay from $5 to $10/sq.ft. for a concrete slab, which for a 30×100 prefab costs around $15,000 to $30,000.
*Note: We have estimated all figures in this guide, which are subject to change depending on availability and accessories. Remember, mostly, we hold this size in stock. Therefore, it will be cheaper than a customized version. So, to be clear, always use this information as a starting point for your research.

30×100 Metal Building Price Factors
Several factors affect the cost of one of our metal building kits. Let’s look at a few.
As you’d expect, a 30×100 (3,000 sq.ft.) rectangular building will cost less than other configurations having the same floor area. You can add extensions, such as a lobby for outdoor clothes, a restroom, or a kitchen, onto the original rectangle.
However, these need their own foundations and extra steel framing on the joins. All this costs extra and will be added to the basic price.
Your building plot’s location affects the overall price:
- Every town has unique building codes designed for the environmental conditions in your area. For example, California will need extra design work to withstand seismic disturbances, and Florida must be able to withstand hurricanes. This additional design and construction work costs extra.
- You might need the kit delivered to a place far from our distribution center. The extra miles will cost more than delivering nearby. Ask our sales agent about shipping rates.
Local Soil & Geology
A 30×100 prefab kit is considered a small building. However, this amount of steel is very heavy, and you need a substantial foundation to prevent subsidence.
The type of foundation and the amount of concrete used depends on the soil conditions and local geology under the building. Usually, to apply for a permit, you must satisfy your local town hall so that the building won’t collapse.
So, hire a certified structural engineer to do the math and design the foundation. Then, you use this report as part of your permit application.
Amount of Steel
The steel amount and grade used in the prefab’s construction affect the price. For example, a family home needs higher-grade steel than a garage.
Furthermore, a prefab designed for an active earthquake zone needs a different amount of steel than one in a seismically stable area. Be warned, we always use the correct steel for the building’s purpose and won’t compromise people’s safety.
The building’s architectural style often affects the price. For example, an ornate pitched roof costs more than a lean-to roof.
Also, the size, number, and type of doors and windows influence the price.
If your building’s purpose is to house people, animals, or items that need a constant and benign temperature, consider investing in insulation. Sometimes, you will be legally required to do this anyway.
The amount and type of thermal insulation required depend on the items to be protected and the R-Value needed for your climate zone. Our agents can advise based on your local environmental and energy efficiency building codes.
Doors & Windows
The size, number, and type of doors and windows affect the overall price. Not only do the items themselves cost extra. But, the building also needs additional steel supports in the framework to accommodate the compromised structural integrity.
Ask our sales team for our current list of doors and windows.
We’ve already touched on this.
But, to repeat, we can design your structure to comply with or exceed the building codes and regulations governing its ability to withstand the extreme weather in your region.

Benefits Of Steel Buildings For Businesses
Prefabricated steel building kits are great for businesses looking for affordable new construction in today’s uncertain economic climate.
Furthermore, even though we’re discussing the benefits specifically for our 30×100 building, you will experience the same benefits regardless of the building’s dimensions.
Let’s look at a few of the benefits that Rex Metal Buildings can offer your company.
Many people often overlook the fact that steel buildings can withstand extreme weather better than conventionally built structures. And, by insulating the steel, the interior will be less affected by extreme temperatures.
Furthermore, steel only melts at a very high temperature. Therefore, insurance companies regard it as fire resistant and with better insurance risk, meaning lower premiums.
We make our prefabricated building kits in a factory and send them to your site for assembly. Therefore, most of the work is done in a controlled environment where we iron out any problems and remedy them before arrival at your weather-dependent plot.
Once delivered, each section can then be assembled in the correct order knowing that everything fits perfectly.
Our 30×100 steel prefabs don’t have any interior columns to get in the way. Therefore, you can use every square inch of floor space without fitting around awkward obstacles.
These ClearSpan floors allow our customers to use the area for almost anything, office spaces, a manufacturing plant, or even a family home. The choice is yours.
Because we have sorted out all the problems that might conceivably occur with our designs by the time the kit reaches you, our prefab metal building can be assembled and put to use comparatively quickly.
This results in on-site labor and equipment hire savings and allows your business to move in and start making money quickly.

Durable, Energy-Efficient & Environmentally-Friendly
Rex Metal Buildings use structural steel with a paint finish bonded to the metal. Our buildings can withstand high winds, heavy snow, and rain without warping, rotting, or rusting.
Furthermore, being steel, they are inherently fireproof and don’t support termites, mildew, mold, or other types of rot.
We use precision engineering to make the joints around doors, windows, and between panels so small that they are essentially draftproof.
Therefore, combine this with double glazing and thermal insulation suitable for your climate region, and you have an energy-efficient building that remains cool in summer and warm in winter.
Thus, you’ll have significant reductions in your air-conditioning and heating bills all year round.
Finally, steel is one of the few materials that is infinitely recyclable. At its life’s end, the entire structure can be melted down, including any rust, and recycled into new steel to begin its life again as another steel item.
Furthermore, every building we supply is safe and attractive, provided our customers assemble them according to our instructions.
Usually, all our building kits are easy to erect, and if you are DIY handy, and the building isn’t too large or complex, you can do this work yourself. Alternatively, let us worry about assembly with our special turnkey packages.
We hold many basic designs in stock, or we can take your ideas and design something unique that is customized yet entirely building code compliant.
