I love my building

I ordered my Building in late 2011 because of Future Building's end of year clearance sale. I asked them to not deliver it till spring as I couldn't get it near the shop area what with the snow we had. Once the snow cleared and I had the land for it cleared it became obvious that the building that I had purchased was not going to fit as we had hit some massive and really hard rock ridges that the excavator and hammer could not remove and the site was too close to the house for blasting.
I contacted my sales rep, Nick , and explained the problem. He said not to worry he would figure something out and got me a smaller building with similar cost savings as the clearance one I had originally purchased, Thanks again Nick!
The building went up great with very few problems, Future Building has really thought these things through, and I have enjoyed it for 8 years now.
We had more than double the rated snow/ice load last winter and due to my inability to clear the snow and ice off it my building took a little damage, some cracks in the peak panels. Once I found them I contacted Nick ( who has risen quite a bit in the company since I last dealt with him) and he immediately set about helping me contact the relevant people in his organization to get the assistance I needed to fix the damage. They have been very fair in helping me to get it fixed ASAP( can't till next spring because of site conditions) and Nick himself has gone out of his way personally to help me find documentation I had lost to help out the insurance company with my claim.
I can't say enough good about Nick and the Future Building team, they went above and beyond when I first got the building from them and again now that I am having some problems with it, none of them caused by the building itself I might add, just an unusually massive snow and ice load.
If I was to ever build another steel building Future Building would be the one and only company I would even think of dealing with, period. They're the best!

Future Steel Building 34x17

We ordered the shop last year and we have finally put it all together. The plans arrived early and we confirmed we could build this building on our property. We even made it longer than originally planned. John Wilson was exact in what to expect from them and what was expected from us. John in shipping made sure all was accounted for and once the pad was ready, the build was easy. I got lots of motivation, help and planning from the boss/wife! I would now feel comfortable building these for others, if only I had the time. The shop is almost ready to work in and the compliments from the neighbours keep coming. We will send pics once we are 100% done. Thank you again Future Steel for making this all possible.

Storage building

Purchased 20x20 building - 3 sides from local friend who did not erect yet and was not needing building now and wanted to expand and modify the building . To do this i needed to purchase a number of metal sections from you and have the 4th wall customized for my needs. From the first call all 4 of the staff i spoke to were quick , friendly and knowledgeable to assist me and got me to Ross. Ross is outstanding in every way you could imagine. You are blessed to have such a person . He needs to be promoted ....Thank you Ross for your help. I makes this project work perfectly .Duaine Hamilton

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

Thank you for your honest review. We are currently adding capacity in our engineering department to help us reduce the lead time for engineered drawings.
