Frequently Asked Pricing Questions
1. How do you price your metal buildings?
Each building project is unique because we custom make
each structure to fit your exact needs. We do not use "kits" or package
Our pricing for each individual project is determined by what it will cost us to build the structure and where it is located.
2. Do you price your buildings by square feet?
No. We hand figure each quote individually, basing the
price on precisely what it costs us to build the structure and where it
3. Can you give me a ballpark estimate? I want to be certain I can afford one before I ask you to compute an exact price.
We receive lots of requests for ballpark estimates. The
actual price can vary considerably from project to project because we
do not use cookie-cutter
pre-fabricated building kits like
some other companies in the region. Every AMKO metal building is
crafted from scratch per the customer's exact requests and needs, not
a list of ready-made packages or building plans. Because each is
unique, we simply have no efficient way of fairly guessing the final
Having said that, please allow us to
give you some idea of where our costs typically run on various
buildings. Concrete costs will not be included in these examples.
The least costly style is an AMKO "Post Frame"
type, known elsewhere as a pole barn style. They may run anywhere from
$15.00 / sq. ft. to within the low twenties.
Our most popular "Steel Truss/Wood Frame"
style engineered building is the very top of the line and is unequalled
anywhere. You may prove this to yourself by visiting our many proud
AMKO building owners or by coming to tour our model building and office
in Pea Ridge. This style is used for everything from simple
storage units to high quality residential structures, commercial
buildings, and motels. Our cost may run from the high teens to close to
$25.00 / sq. ft. (dried-in on the outside, with no interior work at
We also offer a "Stud Wall/Wood Truss"
building for a more cost-efficient residential type unit (single story
only with this style). The top of the line in this style runs around
$20.00 / sq. ft. or less. Keep in mind it is still very high quality
and with complete engineering.
4. How much of the building project do you (Myrick Construction) complete?
We build the outside completely finished in and can do
some work inside such as room framing, second story floor, stairs, etc.
We do not do interior work, but can refer you to excellent
craftsmen in our area for plumbing, interior carpentry, electrical,
dirt work, landscaping, and heating/air.
We work with them to help ensure quality.
They can bid their portion of the work directly to you and be paid directly by you. That way you save money by not paying middle-man costs.
our AMKO quality buildings are customized and uniquely formed we want
to maintain a hands-on, supervisory quality control over the work as it
goes up, for your peace of mind.
5. I don't know anyone who does dirt work, concrete work, etc. Can you recommend some ethical contractors in the area?
We have on file and maintain close working relations with
several fine contractors in the area who work with us on various
stages, if needed.
are each familiar with the exact precision and unique nuances that are
required to guarantee the quality and reliability of your AMKO
Site work, septic systems, concrete work, plumbing,
electrical, and HVAC services are available. We do not act as a general
contractor (a general contractor usually charges you a percentage for
providing sub-contractors); rather, we work with each provider, and you pay them directly to save "middle man" costs. It's a nice feature.
6. I'd like to live in a metal building. What are the real advantages over conventional residential construction?
We receive lots of requests for residential steel
buildings, and for good reason. Each is maintenance-free, strong,
simple to heat and cool (due to excellent Thermax insulation and how it
is installed - a trade secret that makes ALL of the difference). The
real advantage to this style of residence is not the cost, but the
speed of construction and amazing, energy-efficient insulative
7. What is the speed of construction? How quickly can an AMKO building go up?
Once your slab floor is finished, a standard AMKO shop
building can be dried-in in as few as three days. Various factors may
extend the time, such as inclement weather, size and complexity of the
project, location, and unforeseen circumstances. Residential
structures have, for example, been dried-in, ready for electrical
and dry wall, in as few as three to four weeks. Compared to the lengthy
wait for traditional residential construction, it's easy to see why
live-in metal buildings are the coming thing in modern home design.
8. What about Financing ?
We do not offer financing, although we have referred interested customers to Farm Credit of Western Arkansas
9. What makes an AMKO quality metal building worth the price?
The AMKO engineered building, whether it be in the style
of steel truss/wood frame, post-frame, or stud wall/wood truss, is of
the highest quality available,
and erected from scratch by expert craftsmen, using the finest
materials we can source. No two are the same. We never purchase
building "kits", as kit structures
are unreliable and often leak. We demand the best, and it shows. Naturally, our price reflects this finer quality.
There are plenty of steel buildings to be had in our general area; some for every budget.
