Armstrong Steel vs. The Competition

Armstrong Steel Buildings are fabricated in state of the art facilities. Our culture has embodied a sort of fanatical attention to detail. Most of our competitors are focused on making their product the cheapest. We think cutting corners to be the cheapest is misguided. A product should genuinely be better. This requires real discipline, and that's what drives us - a sincere, genuine appetite to make something excellent.

[simple_tooltip content="The In-House Advantage
Most steel building 'companies' do not bother to staff detailers, draftsmen or engineers. Don't fall victim to the boiler rooms that merely broker your order out to another company. Armstrong Steel staffs in-house draftsmen & detailers that work solely on Armstrong Projects. We maintain stringent standards, guidelines, specifications, and measurements for every single piece of your building: all individual primary & secondary members, connections, clips, and weld specs in your steel building. Our draftsmen obsess over your approval, shop and wet-stamped construction drawings - IN HOUSE. Most 'competitors' do NOT detail your building in house. Instead, the competition often hands over all quality control of your project to the cheapest overseas bidder & pockets the difference in labor cost. Having in house control over a customer's building project (as opposed to subbing out the detailing & engineering overseas like many of our competitors do) is the difference between errors and excellence! Don't settle for poor design or craftsmanship. Select a company that's in charge of detailing and designing what you order!"]Click for more information [/simple_tooltip]

Pre Galvanized Secondary Framing
[simple_tooltip content="The Galvanized Advantage
Armstrong's heavy gauge galvanized base angle ranges from 12 to 16 gauge depending on the application and provides superior protection against rust. Our base angle completely seals the bottom of the building against all leaks. The trim on the bottom matches the trim on the building creating a beautiful structure and also closes off the bottom of the corrugation of the wall panel. Armstrong's base angle is included at no additional cost. Other companies do not use a galvanized base angle but only a base angle painted with a red primer, which will corrode and rust. In many instances, it's only 20 gauge (approximately 1/3 lighter than 16 gauge) and will bend and warp during construction. Water and condensation often get trapped at the base of your building, causing lesser quality red oxide materials to rust. Don't rely on a spray on red primer. Protect your building where it matters most! Do it right the first time!"]Click for more information [/simple_tooltip]

Galvanized Flange Bracing
[simple_tooltip content="The Galvanized Advantage
Armstrong uses sturdy Galvanized Flange Bracing because of it's resistance to rusting out. Flange bracing, like all building bracing, must remain strong for the life of your building to prevent the possibility of a failure. Armstrong doesn't cut corners. The possibility of a flange brace failure due to materials rusting out is not worth it! Don't settle for a cheaper red primer alternative."]Click for more information [/simple_tooltip]

40 Year Wall Panel Warranty
[simple_tooltip content="The Armstrong Advantage
Many competitors think a 20 year warranty is sufficient. A warranty for half the duration of an Armstrong Building speaks to the quality of what you're looking at. Armstrong's wall panels are made of 26 gauge steel with a yield of 80,000 PSI and a massive corrugation depth of 1 1/4 inch. The strength of the steel combined with the high PSI yield and deep corrugation create tremendous protection against strong winds and heavy snows. Bottom line? If a hole rusts through a panel, we replace it."]Click for more information [/simple_tooltip]

40 Year Paint Warranty
[simple_tooltip content="The Armstrong Advantage
The paint on Armstrong's sidewall panels carries a 40 year warranty against chipping, cracking, peeling or blistering. Additionally, a substrate galvanized coating beneath the paint provides further protection against rusting. Some companies only offer a 10 year paint warranty on the sidewall panels. Few offer a 20 year warranty on the paint."]Click for more information [/simple_tooltip]

35 Year Roof Panel Warranty
[simple_tooltip content="The Armstrong Advantage
Armstrong's roof coating is AZ55 Galvalume. The coating requires no maintenance or painting and it retains its original luster. It is comprised of 55% aluminum, 44% zinc and 1% silicone. The greater aluminum content creates a higher resistance to rust. Armstrong's roof panels are made of 26 gauge steel with a yield of 80,000 PSI and a massive corrugation depth of 1 1/4 inch. The strength of the steel combined with the high PSI yield and deep corrugation create tremendous protection against strong winds and heavy snows.
