“Hello Universal Steel, I wanted to share my experience with you after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico late last year. I visited all the buildings I bought from Universal Steel, about 12 buildings. At that time I thought maybe not all of them survived and I would find them collapsed or torn apart. (As you all know that Hurricane Maria is the deadliest Caribbean hurricane since Hurricane Jeanne in 2004 to hit Puerto Rico.)
In reality all the buildings remained intact and stood strong like the first day they were erected. The devastation around the buildings was unprecedented. Other structures in the same areas did completely collapse or had very serious damage. The first one I bought from you is approximately 18 years old, erected in the center of the island and remains intact and standing strong. Thank you for your business and the amazing quality of Universal Steel’s structures.”

Me and my family are safe. I can honestly say it was one hell of a ride. The eye of the storm literally came right over us at 131 mph sustained winds for two hours and gusts up to 155. It sounded like a freight train coming over the building I was in.
The new building sustained the storm and didn’t have one failure. The wind was actually hitting the front with the two large pull down doors and their integrity maintained. I honestly thought when I went home from headquarters today that it would be destroyed. I have to give the engineers kudos for a job well done!!!!!
One hell of a building John. Hurricane Irma, 130 mph sustained and 155 mph gusts head on. Still standing like a champ!”
“…The whole process, from working with Jim Turner during the planning & design, working with Tammy with the shipping and all the way through to completion was a delight. I was amazed at how everything fit. I would and have highly recommended your product. An all metal structure like yours is actually cheaper than wood framing – I did the comparison. I love my building…”

“…it will be a great asset to our walk-in trade. I want to congratulate Universal Steel for the material and expertise that we received from the personnel of their company. Everyone was very polite and courteous… we will definitely be calling you for a bid on any new ventures.”

“I am writing you to THANK YOU for the well made construction of your buildings. I live in Louisiana where we were struck by Hurricane Rita… The hurricane took ‘everything’ we owned, except for our metal barn purchased from Universal Steel. We are so impressed with Universal Steel, we are choosing to rebuild our home using Universal Steel construction. I choose to stay with a company I truly trust.”

“Enclosed are the pictures of the completed building. We are really happy with the building – it is very well designed and of good quality. Even the contractor was surprised at how everything lined up and he didn’t have to re-drill any holes! Thank you for getting us a good price on the building. If you have a customer that wants to see a completed building, send him over! We’ll be glad to show him our building.”
