When considering a Texas steel building or a metal carport, there are three things that should jump out at you as important factors in making a decision about who to buy from:
* Experience * Reputation * Quality of Materials *
Experience & Reputation
Absolute Steel has shipped its steel buildings into every State in the Union including Alaska and Hawaii. They’re in use in Europe and Afghanistan as well. From damp, dark underground mines to the Sierra Nevada range with a 65 pound per square foot Design Snow Load, we can handle it because we’ve done it.
We are a contract supplier to the Federal government, the State of Texas and we’ve supplied countless other municipalities, States and thousands of American households with our metal building and steel carport products. In some cases we’re working on our sixth generation private referral - that’s the way good business happens.
With Absolute Steel Texas, you are dealing with one company that takes care of the whole process from helping you with your concept to following it through to production. Whatever stage your building is at, you can call and speak to real people who are involved with the whole process - how refreshing!
When it comes to a tubular steel building system - metal buildings, covered parking, steel carports, equipment storage, RV covers, barns---we have the experience with our boots on the ground in all aspects of it.
Our Experience is Here to Back You Up!
Quality of Materials
We fabricate our own parts right here in our Texas factory and we make them out of the best quality of American made steel. Our insistence to use only American steel is because American steel meets or exceeds certain specifications for architectural steel. It seems like an obvious choice to make when you’re fabricating something that might have people inside or under it but not everyone comes to that conclusion.
Just use your eyes and some common sense and you can see the difference even in our brackets and how they’re attached.

In the left picture you’ll see 2.25” x 2.25” tube used as a structural upright corner brace on a Texas metal building.
On the right-hand picture, you see ours: 2” x 3” tube used for a structural corner brace—always!
To the left, you see a bracket that is so thin it has been distorted simply from the torque of the screws.
To the right, you see an Absolute Steel bracket which is heavy 12 gauge American steel which meets all Uniform Building Code requirements.
To the left, there are only two screws used per side and they are lined up offering no extra strength for wind shear.
To the right, you’ll see an Absolute Steel structure with three screws per side placed properly so as to maximize for wind shear.”
It’s the sum of all these little things and more that makes the difference when considering quality of materials!
