In addition to the unlimited design options that Mako Steel, Inc. can offer for your self storage buildings, our expertise and know-how offers many advantages including:

  • In-House Structural Engineering. With a drafting and engineering team that specializes in self storage design and construction, we design efficiencies into the engineering of your project, for instance, we offer single story design that distributes the building loads evenly throughout the slab, resulting in reduced foundation requirements.  Preset anchor bolts are not required.
  • Unlimited Options for Unit Mix. Utilizing a 5’x10’ grid system, we can help maximize the efficiency of the site while keeping your self storage construction costs down.
  • Reduce Erection Time. All steel is precut and marked to reduce erection time. No forklift is usually required to erect our self storage systems. These savings are passed on to you.
  • Options for Roofing and Siding. We offer flexibility with your building products including standing seam roofing and Thoreau-fastened panels, as well as many options for metal siding. 
  • Extended Warranties.  All of our roof and wall panels come with a 20 year extended warranty.
  • Quick Delivery.  With 17 manufacturing locations across the country, we have the ability to ship your building materials or replacement parts rapidly and at a low cost.
  • Quality Installation. In most areas, Mako Steel can also provide a crew to install our buildings on your slab. Our self storage installation crews are some of the best craftsman in the trade. All of our crews are certified by our Project Management Staff and have years of experience building self storage.
