• Frequently asked Questions

How long will it take to get steel framing materials for my project?
FSFTM Steel Framing

There are many factors that contribute to the length of time required for steel framing materials to be delivered to the construction site. An average 2,800 square feet home can generally be fabricated in around eight hours. However, design, demand, and delivery time are also major factors to consider. As a rule of thumb, we usually ask that orders be placed 4 weeks prior to the date the materials need to be on-site, however, please give us a call to see if we are able to expedite your order.

Can FSFTM frame my building as well?
FSFTM Steel Framing Builder

As our name suggests, FSFTM, or Florida Steel Frame & Truss Manufacturing, is in the business of manufacturing steel framing members. We are not a framing labor company. However, if you are in the Greater Tampa Bay or Greater Orlando areas, we may be able to refer a general contractor who is familiar with our steel framing products.

How much will it cost to frame using steel?
FSFTM Steel Framing Estimates

Every project has its own requirements. We design our steel framing systems to these unique requirements rather than forcing our clients to work around our "standard sizes." For an accurate estimate, please contact us and we will be more than happy to provide you with a free estimate.

What gauge steel do you use?
FSFTM Light Gauge Steel

Different projects and framing members have their own requirements, and there is no one size fits all answer. As such, we manufacture steel ranging from 25 gauge to 16 gauge for residential, commercial, and light industrial applications. 

What file format should plans be submitted in?
