Please look at our ‘frequently asked questions’ list for common inquiries. If you can not find the answers here, our team is ready to help.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What about the building permit?
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. MQS can provide pre-engineered plans.
What about the site preparation?
Excavation may be available through MQS depending on your location. If you provide your own pad, you will need to provide us with a level building site approximately 2 feet larger then your building on all sides. Adequate provision should be made for drainage away from the site. Final leveling and grading may be needed after the completion of your building.
What is the construction procedure?
The average lead time from signing a contract to completion of the building can vary depending on the availability of our crews. Typically our crews start the building process within a week of delivery of materials.
What are the payment terms?
Every project is completed on a “pay as you go” basis. A 20% deposit is required at signing of the contract. 60% is due upon material delivery. The remaining 20% is due upon completion.
How do I finish the inside of my building?
Our standard building packages have an unfinished interior. A finished package with insulation, moisture barrier, steel liner and concrete floor is available.
What about doors and windows?
We stock overhead doors, windows, and slider doors. Your local sales representative will be able to assist you with all the available options.
What building sizes are available?
We can custom build practically any size. You determine the size that best fits your needs. However, using standard lengths and widths will be economically beneficial to you.
How can I keep my building cost effective?
By using standard lengths and widths, by using our 29Ga metal for siding and roofing, and by staying with the standard 4/12 pitch roof.
The team at MQS was excellent. The entire experience from beginning to end was professional, prompt, and impressive. They followed through with what they said. The administrative team was easy to work with and communicate with. The building team was clean, positive, respectful, helpful and hard working with a great attention to detail and professionalism. I highly recommend this company to anyone. I will be using them again in the future.Steve GarvinAugust 2022
We have loved working with MQS from the start! Austin was always quick to respond to quote changes and any questions we had. He kept us in the loop with delivery/install dates.Kelli JanigaJuly 2022
The materials delivery driver had a challenge getting up to our location (tough access) but he made it work and was great!
The install crew was fast and very tidy. We appreciated their professionalism and skill.
The building itself is everything we expected. We would highly recommend MQS to anyone looking for a new structure, great experience!
We just completed a 60x40 barn thru MQS and the quality of the structure was really impressive! The crew were constantly checking to make sure everything was level and square which shows in the final product. It only took a little more than a week to complete the whole thing and was exactly like the plans that we had drawn up during the contract phase. If you are in the market for a structure, I would highly recommend these guys!Ben PowersSeptember 2022
MQS was awesome to work with from our initial meeting at our property, followed by the continued support throughout the project. They were always responsive, communicative, had great attitudes, etc. In addition, their construction crew worked HARD, fast, but didn't sacrifice quality! Our shop and concrete (which they also did) was completed in 2.5 weeks! Merv did a walkthrough with us at the end to make sure EVERYTHING was up to his expectations as well as ours. We would recommend them over and over again to those looking to have an awesome post-frame shop!Erin OlsonOctober 2022
MQS installed a wonderful storage barn for us. They worked hard, did an outstanding job in a short amount of time. They were meticulous in their finish work.Carol BrandtSeptember 2022
We CAN NOT say enough good things about our building experience with this company. They put up our 32’ x 32’ x15’ quality pole barn ahead of schedule for the price quoted. From beginning to end, the employees of MQS were professional, skilled and knowledgeable. Pride in their workmanship and product, is an attribute possessed by everyone from designers to workers on the job site. The building was erected in one day almost a month before the original scheduled date. We will use them again and would recommend them to anyone considering building a barn of any size or shed.Gene FerrinNovember 2021
My new horse barn is beautiful! MQS makes the design process easy, and the renderings provided helped me visualize the final product. There was good, prompt communication with my salesman throughout the process. My building crew was polite and professional. The final result is the perfect addition to my property.jlewisschotJanuary 2023
