Frequently Asked Questions
- It is the customer’s responsibility to apply for the permit if it is required. You will need to check with your local municipality or homeowners association on any restrictions (size, height, materials, etc.) or required setbacks from your property lines. Quality Structures, Inc. will provide the specifications and drawings for your new building that can be used to obtain your building permit.
What about site preparation?Excavation may be available through Quality Structures Inc. depending on your location. If you decide to provide your own pad you will need to provide us with a level building site approximately 3 feet larger than your building on all sides. If QSI will be providing you with a concrete floor it is your responsibility to add 3-inches of rock or sand on top of your level building pad. Adequate provisions should be made for drainage away from the site. Final leveling and grading may be needed after the completion of your building.

Good – Radiant Reflective insulation known as ClassicWrap provides you with a condensation reducer and a reflective type insulation that reflects the heat outward in the summer and inward in the winter. This product is used primarily as a condensation barrier.
Better – Microfoil Insulation known as WeatherWrap provides you with all the above and a slightly better R-value with a tear resistant white finish for your building interior. This is an effective way to insulate your building if you want to heat occasionally in the winter time.
Best – QSI offers several options to improve the comfort of your building depending on your needs. We offer R-13 or R-19 fiberglass batt insulation and R-30 blown in insulation which is typically used in conjunction with a steel liner package.
