Why buy my new building from Texas Best Buildings?
Texas Best Buildings is a family-owned and operated business with years of experience in the portable building business. We have our own fleet of delivery trucks, shortening your delivery time compared to other dealers. Our structures are proudly built in the Mennonite tradition, and are made to last with quality materials.
How strong are your buildings?
Our buildings are engineered to withstand 150 MPH winds. Every rafter has an attached hurricane clip to ensure structural stability under high wind conditions. Our siding and roof options are made to withstand all of the punishment the Texas weather can offer. Our 4x6 skids and 2x6 joists are pressure treated for ground contact with a lifetime warranty against decay and termites. We also offer hurricane straps and anchors on our buildings for areas that require this. Please contact us to get a quote for this option.
What if I don't live in Texas? Can I still order a building from you?
Texas Best Buildings serves only the Lone Star State. If you are in another state, please contact us and we will put you in touch with a dealer in your area.
Is delivery really FREE?
Delivery is free within fifty miles of any Derksen Dealer, which covers most of the Great State of Texas. If you are not sure if your purchase will qualify for free delivery, please contact us.
Are all of your buildings available for Rent-to-Own?
Almost all of our buildings may be purchased using our Rent-to-Own Program. Buildings built using our Build On Site Service are not eligible for Rent-to-Own and some special orders may require a cash purchase in rare cases.
How much is the Security Deposit on your Rent-to-Own Program?
The Security Deposit required when you finance your building is determined by the size of the building. On our 36-Month Rent-to-Own Program, the Security Deposits are:
- 8’-wide & 10’-wide buildings - $100
- 12’-wide buildings - $200
- 14’-wide buildings - $500
- 16’-wide buildings - $750
Our 60 Month Rent-to-Own Program has lower monthly payments and slightly higher Security Deposits for some sizes. Please contact us for the rates and terms on the 60-Month Rent-to-Own Program.
Is there any penalty if I pay my building off early?
There is no penalty for paying off your building more quickly than your 36 or 60 month financing terms. In fact, you will save money by paying off your building more quickly than your term.
How long will I have to wait to get my building?
A building purchased from Texas Best Buildings is assigned to a builder in our factory within days of your order. Most buildings are complete within two weeks, depending upon the size and complexity of the structure. Unlike other portable building stores, we have our own fleet of delivery trucks and drivers who ensure prompt delivery and 100% satisfaction.
Does the building need to sit on gravel or concrete?
The only requirement is a relatively level location. Our buildings are designed to rest directly on their skids, which are pressure treated specifically to withstand ground contact. In order to level the building on slightly uneven ground we use treated wood blocks made from the same Lifetime Warranty materials as the skids and joists under the building floor. If you would like to have your building on concrete blocks, we require that you provide the blocks, or we can bring them for an additional fee.
Can I choose the colors?
Our buildings are available in a variety of colors. When you order a metal, urethane, or painted building, you can choose the color for the siding, the trim, and the roof. For our treated wood buildings, you can choose between many colors for your metal roof. A shingle roof is also available on all of our Treated Wood and Painted SmartSide or Urethane SmartSide models for no additional charge.
Do you do any partial interior finishing on your buildings?
We offer products like Spray Foam Insulation, Electrical Packages, and other Special Options to give you a big head start on finishing the interior of your new Derksen Building. These upgrades can be included in your financing package, making them both smart and affordable. And of course, we also have four models of Finished Cabins if you are looking for a living space that is ready to move in.
How much space should be allowed to deliver a building?
A vertical space of at least 14' (depending upon the style and size), measured from the ground to the top of the building when it is on the trailer, is required for most models. Be sure to take any tree branches and utility wires into account. The driver will still need a minimum amount of space that exceeds the width of the building to maneuver the building into position. If you're not sure, please contact us and we will arrange a free site inspection to ensure that your building will be able to be delivered to your desired location.
What if the building I want won't fit through my gate or down my driveway?
We offer a Build On Site Service for these situations. There is a fee equal to 25% of the base price of your building for this service. Our financing program is not available for buildings constructed on site.
What sizes are your buildings available in?
Our Treated Wood, Urethane, Painted, and premium Z-Metal buildings can be built in sizes from 8' x 12' up to 16' x 50', in increments of two feet for most styles. We can build our Budget Metal buildings in sizes from 8' x 12' to 12' x 30', also in increments of two feet. Our Best Value Sheds and Metro Sheds are only available in specific sizes.
What kind of maintenance will be required on my building?
You should enjoy many years of maintenance free storage. And because our buildings are truly portable, you can take them with you should you relocate.
Do I need to have permits or other paperwork?
You are responsible for contacting your local city and county agencies in regard to zoning, permits, setbacks, and covenants. If you have questions, please contact us for some advice. We have experience with these matters that can save you time, hassle, and money.
What is the warranty on a building?
We guarantee our buildings to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of five years. All exposed pressure treated wood has a lifetime limited manufacturer warranty against termites and fungal decay. Our metal siding, metal roofs, and shingle roofs have a limited 30-year manufacturer's warranty. Our SmartSide siding has a 50-Year manufacturer's warranty.
