10x20 shed

I wouldn’t buy from them again. I told them I wanted a 10 x 20 storage shed. They repeatedly assured me that the type of building they were recommending was legal in my area. NOT! Once I made a deal they insisted on delivery right away said that I would have to pay a storage fee if I didn’t take it immediately. They didn’t send me the blue prints to submit for a permit until weeks after delivery. Oops city denied the permit. The city says that type of building is not allowed in Residential Windsor ON Canada
I called many times to discuss the issue. They kept saying that they would talk to someone about it but refused to give me the name and number of their manager.

They usually didn’t call back. They kept putting me off. They refused to give any refund. Finally I told them I would give them bad reviews on social media, complain to the BBB and take them to small claims court.The sales guy said to go ahead because “we’re not giving you anything”
And by the way don’t believe their ad about supporting frontline workers. They are fully aware that I am a frontline hospital worker and retired military. They don’t care who they screw over. They don’t stand behind their word.
They also blocked me from leaving any comments on their adds. I guess they don’t like it when the truth comes out.
Now I am out 4K. They told me to go sell it on Kijiji.
Don’t buy from Future Buildings.

25' x 34' Steel Shop

The building was delivered close to estimated delivery date. The engineered drawings could have been sent out earlier as they were supposed to. This held up my construction of the foundation

20x30 Work Shop

Hallie (ext 272) was an excellent rep, she responded to email and phone quickly and efficiently. All phases of the project proceeded on time and delivery went without a hitch. We were quite surprised at the quality of the kit with it's heavy gauge steel and corrosion resistant coatings. These piece were heavy, we were only able to move two or three pieces at a time. Over all a great experience.

Steel Garage

Bought a 25 x 32 x 13 high steel garage. Very satisfied. Easy to build. Excellent quality. Fast delivery. Was very hesitant in buying a mail-order building. No regrets at all. No surprises. Everything I ordered was received. Any questions I had, their tech support had the answers. Highly recommended.

roof to go over ccans

I was looking on line came across future steel buildings and found a roof that went over ccans. Perfect size to cover the ccans and leave covered room to work under as well. I talked to Ryan who was very helpful, I was able to order on line and trust what I was getting. They even changed the roof so I had the option to have a ccan inside or out side of the ccan on one side. If I need a building or another roof I would go with future steel buildings again.

Car Port

The carport package arrived in good order and in a reasonable time line. It was easy to assemble, the wife and i put it up in a day and a half.
The only issue i have is that the support post did not come with a cover plate. Reading the product booklet i realize they are not required on the particular length of my carport. But it does leave the posts with an unfinished look (cosmetic look).
I did get pieces made up and i installed them on the posts, now the posts look completed.

Workshop

Futurebuildings supplied a complete 20’x28’ steel workshop as well as detailed easy to follow instructions for assembly. Very happy with my new workshop. Great follow up from Kyle Spellman when I needed a new instruction manual and for any questions that came up
