I talked to several outfits and the individual I dealt with at Olympia Steel was very nice. He was very knowledgeable and we worked through all the questions that I had. He was very responsive. They also had the best price. I was very happy.

Absolutely stay away from this company, they are as shady as it gets. What is especially bad about them is their "head" salesman Steve. We bought a building from them last year, they re-used some of the structural steel from a project that the previous customer had backed out on and lost their deposit or so they say (if you notice this happens a lot with them, those are probably their smartest customers to get out).
Steve is the slimiest salesman I've ever worked with and I was almost dumb enough to buy a Mexico timeshare a few years back from the second slimiest. We negotiated a deal for the building and picked out all the colors just to have him send me the contract with a 10% new construction tax on for my area when it is 2.9% where we live (we know this in and out because we are in construction). He would not drop the tax down even though I sent him information and websites showing it to be 2.9% in our area so I told him we would not sign and would walk away if they don't fix it.
Long story short, they left the 10% tax but dropped the price of the building about 10k to have it come out even, super shady. Now we are almost complete with the building and our landscaper hit and damaged two of our siding panels so we called them up to get a quote so he can pay out of pocket or submit it to his insurance, well, amazing salesman Steve won't email us the estimate so the guy can pay the damages because he said we're the ones doing something shady. Whatever, you guys deserve to be out of business and fast! Please take my advice and don't give these guys one cent.

Working with their rep was very good. I was very happy with the way everything went with them. When I had a 40 by 100 steel building built, they had a factory fire and it was a rough time for them. But they came through and they did everything they said they were gonna do.

Steven has been super helpful. It's been really easy with him. But the delivery was a little bit of a debacle. They showed up a day early and thank God, I was there. But it ended up working out okay. They reimbursed me for having to pay for last-minute help when I wasn't prepared until the next day.

I went with a 7,500-square-foot rectangular building. The rep was willing to do quote, after quote after quote. Over that period of time, we did 11 quotes because things changed as I was going through the process. I needed a 20-foot-add-on to onto a rear corner of the building and he was able to do that. He accommodated every time and worked with me with three different companies that could provide the wall texture that I needed.
It's been a perfectly enjoyable business-like arrangement all the way through, and their flexibility is wonderful. Even the delivery of the building was scheduled out a little bit because we didn't have the property prepared to accept the building on delivery. The building came on two flatbed trucks, and I had somebody there to unload it.

I've got three of Olympia's buildings now - one's a warehouse, one's a freezer, and one's a cooler. I am happy. For one of the buildings, they forgot to send the end cap but they sent it to me next day. They did great.

I was scheduled to do a carport style and put the extra ribs. The guy I was talking to in lining up to get it done quit answering his phone. I got on the internet and saw Olympia. I called and a dude by the name of Kevin answered the phone. He hooked me up, and we went to town with it. I'm glad I decided not to go with the carport style because this is so much better. It cost a little bit more with the way I had to set it up with the concrete. The insulation and reinstallation that belongs to that building are pre-cut. Kevin hooked me up with a dude that Olympia got and helped put these buildings together. It would have taken me a year to put it together but this guy had it up in a week’s time. The building was sitting there before my concrete was done. But everything worked together good.
I love the building. I'm glad I went with Olympia because there's a big difference. This building is strong enough that I can do whatever I want to do in it or on it. I live down in Cumberland, Maryland area, down in the foothills of Allegheny Mountains, and we get 3 or 4 foot snows. I wanted something strong enough to support the weight of the snow. When somebody treats me like Kevin did with respect and to make sure I got the product that I wanted, that means a lot to me. He could have dragged this out for three or four months. But when I talked to this man, everything started clicking. I had a building within five weeks.

I got a 100-foot long by 60-foot wide with three garage bays and steel with an installation package with Olympia Steel Buildings. They were very cooperative. The installation package wasn’t ready, but they got ahold of the installation people, which I was supposed to. They helped cover the situation. They made a call for me and got the installation package because it was separate from their building. All the bolts were there. There were no missing parts. It took them two weeks to put it up. They still came through and on time. I gave them a check but something happened to the check and we had to issue another one two months later. Other than that, everything went about as smooth as could be.

I had some frustrations with Olympia Steel on the outset because the delay in the building arrival was so much further than what the salesman had originally projected. But when it was all said and done and we had talked to a couple other steel building manufacturers, it was the condition of the market and the nation in regards to the steel as a whole. It was unavoidable. Everything else was flawless. Those guys got their act together and gave us the reality check early on in the game. They didn’t lead us along which I appreciated. Once they gave us the revised date which was 24 weeks further, they hit it. I was impressed. We’re using the building and the quality is fantastic. They did a good job on putting together the plan. They were detailed so that the average Joe can follow the plans and instructions and put together the building well.

The front end of the process including dealing with Steve, the guy that sold me the building, was wonderful. He went out and sourced my doors for me. The doors cost almost as much as the building does. The building was $35,000 and the doors were $20,000. When it came to delivery, Olympia Steel sucks. I ordered the building and signed the contract in November 2020 before the price increases happened. They were supposed to be out here in April of last year. I had a shoulder surgery, so I told them they could push it off. They took liberty with it and didn't deliver the building until October.
I gave them a chance to make it right. They missed the delivery date on my building by three times they were supposed to show up. One entire week, I rented a forklift and they didn't show up. They never reimbursed me for anything. There were parts missing in the building I didn't get till four months after the building was delivered. They’re cheap. I spoke with their big corporate guy. He didn't want to refund me my money for the forklift. It cost me a lot of money for that forklift. I ended up buying one because it's $1,800 a week to rent it. It cost 30 grand to buy one.
This was my iron fabrication shop so this is why this is unacceptable. The building isn’t even real steel. They're not doing the fabrication. They're sending this off to some shop in Alabama. It's not being made in Pennsylvania like I thought. I had a guy that was in the shipping department and he wouldn't even answer the phone for me. I've got a buddy that owns a very expensive marina. He wanted a building. Olympia Steel quoted him about $120,000 for it. I called him and told him when they didn't make it right with me. I warned him exactly what happened. The building works and it’s a good value. They’re the cheapest out there but you get what you pay for.

The rep, Steve, was easy to work with. We ordered on December 1st of 2020, and he got right on it. I got the materials in September last year. Our experience has been good so far except for the garage doors. Right now, I'm waiting for some motors. They sent me phase three motors out instead of phase ones, and now I've been waiting a month to even get any response. Steve’s working on it, but the door company’s dragging their feet. But it’s a nice building and I like it.
