How Much Does a 40×40 Metal Building Cost?

Pre-engineered metal buildings are an excellent option for either the residential or commercial consumer. A 40’ x 40’ metal building, for example, offers 1,600 square feet of space that would be perfect for the following:

  • Garage or Barn
  • Personal Storage
  • Office Space
  • Retail Storefront
  • Metal Building Home
  • And More!

Assuming a non-snow area and standard, light wind loads, a 40’ x 40’ building with a standard eave height of 14’ would cost between $27,600 and $39,900.00 plus shipping as of June 2022 – or, alternatively, between $18.26 and $24.68 per square foot! Your price may vary if there are special code and load requirements.

Through clever design solutions and accessories, your pre-engineered metal building can be tailor-made to fit your needs. Steel entry doors, storefront doors, and overhead doors of all kinds ensure that you will have an affordable option for any combination of form and function; and a variety of other accessories such as windows, vents, and insulation are available as well. Please keep in mind that these accessories will add to base cost of your project.

Green Buildings

The Green Option

Economical for both the environment and your wallet, pre-engineered metal buildings are an earth-friendly option when considering your new structure. The grand majority of metal buildings are made from reclaimed steel and, unlike conventional materials such as wood, steel is never weakened by the recycling process. Metal buildings are even awarded LEED points automatically!

Energy Saving Insulation

What Does It Cost To Insulate a 40 x 40 Metal Building?

Fiberglass blanket insulation is another way to save money and be environmentally friendly in the process. Pre-engineered metal buildings have long lives and insulation will save you hundreds to thousands in energy costs while reducing your footprint. Furthermore, blanket insulation manufacturers have recently begun using formaldehyde-free fiberglass that makes disposal cleaner.

The popular standard for new construction is 4” R-13 blanket insulation. It offers a white or black interior finish and can be put up before your building is sheeted or retro-fitted after construction. To fully insulate your 40’ x 40’ building – roof and walls – it would only cost $2,480.00 to $2,680.00 before shipping!
