The Complete Steel Building Guide: Purchasing Options
There are many options available for builders. In this section, we discuss a few Armstrong purchasing alternatives.
Steel Building Purchasing Options
At Armstrong Steel, we understand that not all our customers are alike. We have some customers who understand all of the technical nuances of contracting and have the capability of doing everything themselves. We also have customers who are completely new to the idea of managing their own building project and we recognize that the experience can be intimidating.
Bottom line? Some of our customers will need a fair amount of hand holding and that's OK! We love sharing our knowledge and expertise with new customers. We'll show you how to cut out the middleman through Armstrong's Direct Buy Program or we can recommend someone local who can manage your entire project - start to finish. We work to cater savvy customers, "newbies" and everyone in between. When it comes to purchasing a building, Armstrong gives customers many options, each with their own unique benefits and characteristics. For most contractors, builders, and do it yourselfers, Armstrong Steel typically recommends the Armstrong Direct Buy Program over other outdated, more expensive methods.
Due to our competitive rates and superior product design, Armstrong Steel Building Systems are the optimal choice for many builders and do it yourselfers. The Armstrong Direct Buy Program is available for folks who meet the basic requirements.
Direct Buy Program
If you're capable of managing some aspects of your own project for the sake of deep discounts, Armstrong's Direct Buy Program may be the avenue for you. If you're qualified to participate, you'll be provided with access to Armstrong's Direct Pricing catalog. This enables you to take advantage of direct pricing on everything from individual metal building components such as panels, screws, and c-channel to exclusive pricing on doors, windows, and insulation. To see if Armstrong's Direct Buy Program may be right for you, contact your Armstrong Steel Building Expert to discuss the pros and cons of this type of purchase.
The retail purchase option is available to a variety of clients, including do it yourselfers and first time builders. This option is offered specifically for the customer who knows exactly what they want but doesn't have time to manage certain aspects of their project. A retail purchase means you discuss your exact needs with a Building Expert, they will then select your door and window models for you, and you're left with the simple task of locking in your price and coordinating with our delivery department as to a date that works best for you. A Building Expert can help you decide if this avenue is right for you.
