The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Nicole Hertzberg during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards Great Western Building Systems.

Great Western Building Systems sells per-engineered steel buildings to end user customers and residential owners. Nicole Hertzberg stated the following about her company, "we help the customers along the way. Once they've decided to purchase from us, we do permit drawings, we let them mark them up and make changes, and [then create] final construction drawings. We have the materials manufactured according to the specifications of the drawings and then shipped out to the customer."

Great Western Building Systems uses a unique system of websites to obtain leads for their company. These websites allow potential customers to places bids and Great Western Buildings Systems will reach out to ask for further details on the requested project. With this additional information, they will provide a quote to the potential client. Ms. Hertzberg stated the following in regards to their sales process, "we actually interview the potential customer to find out the size they are looking for, where it’s going to be built to make sure that what we quote is going to meet the needs of that area. For example, if there is a big snow load or a high wind area we make sure the building is going to be able to withstand those conditions in according to the County requirements of where it’s going to be built. Once we gather that information we plug it into our system and let them know it’s going to cost this much, if you want to buy it from us you can, and then the customer can decide to buy it. Once they buy it, they have the chance through the permitting process to go ahead and make changes and adjustments to the building before it goes into production. They have a couple of chances to look through the plans and the site and make sure everything is exactly what they are looking for."


During the on-site interview, Ms. Hertzberg was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Ms. Hertzberg expressed that his company is in its infancy and doesn't have very many complaints. This is primarily due to their commitment to customer service, "our owner has been in the business for 15 years has a lot of knowledge, and is a great resource of knowledge. If they run into problems along the way we have them talk to him directly and he can usually solve their problems or issues."

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Ms. Hertzberg expressed that the complaints were posted by a former employer who is upset that they created a competing business. In these comments, the former employer makes false statements and accusations against Great Western Building Systems. The former employer is wanting to sue then on a non-complete, but the judge has already thrown out the preliminary injunction. Ms. Hertzberg stated the following about their accreditations, "we use accredited software to design our buildings that meet all of the proper loads and requirements for each jurisdiction. We also have everything stamped by an engineer before it goes into production. The software is called MBS or Metal Building Software. It’s actually an industry-wide program. All of the Metal Building Companies that are reputable use this software. It's built to calculate all the codes and loads all the moments, all the engineering to ensure the building is meeting these requirements and there is no undue torque in a certain corner, joint, or seam."

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to making things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Ms. Hertzberg stated, "we have a commitment to our customers to deliver the buildings they have purchased, and a commitment to each other to build successful family and a successful business that we believe that is honest and ethical and provides the product that is promised."

Great Western Building Systems is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "we are honored to be able to participate in such an amazing program that will help us ensure that our customers are satisfied and receive the service we have promised. Mostly that we are really excited about our business and where it’s going and what it’s going to become."


" We are a company built on family values, trust, and respect. It's a honor to work for a company that truly puts the customer first. Our staff strives every day to serve our customer's needs with the focus and dedication required to ensure satisfaction. We tell our customers the cost of our buildings and accessories before they ever sign a contract because we believe in transparency and ethical business practices. If you call our team at Great Western you will be impressed with their knowledge and expertise.

Great Western Building Systems, LLC takes employee satisfaction seriously as well. Employee feedback and surveys reveal comments such as this, "Great Western Building Systems, LLC takes employee satisfaction seriously. We know that happy employees mean happy customers. Some comments from our employees: "I began working in the steel building industry as an estimator. Over the next years I worked my way through drafting, detailing, project management, customer relations, technical support, and finally became a chief estimator. There are a lot of things that can make a steel building company great. Our company is built on the view that every American should have the privilege of owning their own building exactly how they want it and exactly how they ordered it with no hidden strings. It is important to make sure the price is exactly what it is going to be before the customer commits to purchase from our company. No one likes hidden costs and should feel confident with the initial price they are given. I love that I know our customers get the product they are offered at the price they are quoted. A company is nothing without the people that make it happen and those people should have strong values, and I choose to work at Great Western because of the values the company upholds" "I decided to work for Great Western Buildings because of the team that makes up our organization. It's a team of individuals who strive for customer satisfaction and making sure that the job is done the right way the first time. I previously worked with Individual builders across the US to help their companies either expand into the steel building market or bring them more local business for steel building projects. I came to Great Western because of the people who pick up the phones and work with the customers. It can be extremely difficult to manage or even finish your project unless you have knowledge and support from the company you are working with. My role give the customer a direct contract to discuss their project with someone who's involved from start to finish. My favorite aspect is that my role allows me to be involved and hands on at every point during the process. I get to work directly with our customers from the day they order their buildings until it's up and completed." Our employees are satisfied because they believe in the high-quality products and services we provide. "

EDITORIAL EXPLANATION:  (08/09/2017)Ripoff Report has found the party making this post on Ripoff Report was doing this to harass the company. This company has recently joined Ripoff Report’s Corporate Advocacy Program.  In accordance with Ripoff Report’s current Terms of Service and new policies, this harassing and abusive post has been redacted. 


EDITOR’S COMMENT:  Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  Unfortunately this Report was posted and, upon additional information, appears to have been primarily for the purpose of bullying or harassment.  In many instances Ripoff Report will reach out to the author of the Report to obtain further information.  In other instances, enough information is provided to Ripoff Report to warrant redactions without reaching out to the author.  Ripoff Report is working to combat tactics that are perceived to be cyberharassment, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and/or what is generally considered a “revenge post” as we do not condone such behavior. 

The Report was brought to our attention and, upon review of compiled information including Court documentation (which will be done on a case by case basis without any obligation as resources allow), and at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion, Ripoff Report made the decision to update this Report because it did not conform to our current policies and/or current Terms of Service. Under normal circumstances when applying this new Policy to other Reports, Ripoff Report would simply redact the identifying information from the subject Reports and leave the remainder of the Report content.  In this instance, because this Company is an existing Corporate Advocacy Member Businesses, and given the unique way that Ripoff Report has serviced its customer with advertising and other benefits and services, Ripoff Report has agreed to redact from this Report the original author posting and replace that original author content with this Editorial Comment.

CONSUMERS:  Be kind.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair.  Stick to the facts.  Do your research.  Keep the dirty laundry in the laundry hamper…not on Ripoff Report.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THOSE WHO ABUSE THE SYSTEM:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with nasty personal allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking on the PayPal icon at the bottom of the page located at the following URL:  The more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project in general and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

Thank you!

Competitor Attempt To Hurt Our Reputation

AUTHOR: Nicole - (USA)

Our family at Great Western Buildings is committed to providing top notch service, expertise, and prompt care for all our customers. We are confident that if you talk to one of our experts, you will be impressed.


We do not have a customer who fits the description from these posts.  We believe these posts are from a specific competitor trying to harm our reputation.  The original post was redacted by ripoff report for being abusive and can be viewed here. names-redacted-due-to-perceived-harassment


Nevertheless, we're happy to address the concerns raised in the post.


1) Time in Business - We are proud of our company and what we have accomplished in a short time, and we do not hide how long we have been in business.  Our senior leadership team has been the steel building business for a combined 45 years. Their breadth of experience in this industry is second to none.


2) Our Lifetime Warranty - We guarantee our building for life because we stand by our high quality product.  We've taken our decades of experience and designed a building that we are confident will stand against the tests of time.


3) The Lawsuit - It is a non-compete from a previous employer. The judge recently ruled in our favor, and these posts were made around the time the ruling was issued. We are happy to provide a copy of the ruling to any concerned customers.


If you are actually a customer of ours, please contact us and let us know who you are so we can alleviate your concerns. Are you posting this because you need us to do something to make it right? We will help in any way we can. (800) 497-2135


Again, we believe this complaint is from a competitor. The CEO of a competing company has waged a campaign of hatred against our company and employees. He has cyber-stalked, harassed, and even committed felony theft against us. Formal criminal charges have been brought against him by the district attorney.  A copy is attached.

#2 Author of original report


AUTHOR: - ()

I AM NOT YOUR COMPETITOR. The report is accurate. Great Western's website says the company has decades of experience and has helped hundreds of customers. Ya, exccept Great Western Steel has only been in business since November just like i said. Just search the Colorado Secretary of State Website and it will tell you when Great Western Building Systems started. 11/08/16.

Also looked into this lawsuit in case it was ruled in their favor...commenter for Great Western Steel Buildings is lying again. They are still being sued, the lawsuit is still axctive. And to such a brand new company...risky. says Great Western Steel has engineers, decades of experience and is a manufacturer. They are not manufacturers, they dont have engineers and how do they have hundreds of customers since November? Ethical? No. Still Liers, even on this post? Yes.

This Post Is From a Competitor, Not a Customer

AUTHOR: Nicole - (USA)

1. This post is not actually from a customer.  It’s from a competitor. Many of our employees used to work for this competitor.  Two weeks ago he posted a similar report that was taken down/edited by Ripoff Report because it was inaccurate and abusive. Here is a link to the original post he submitted.  names-redacted-due-to-perceived-harassment

2. Our president, founders, and employees have decades of experience in the metal building industry and have helped thousands of customers obtain and complete their dream buildings.  Talk to our experts on the phone and it will be obvious that they are experienced, knowledgeable, helpful, and ethical.  (800) 497-2135

3. We offer a lifetime warranty because we are committed to standing behind our product and taking care of our customers.

4. The competitor who posted this has sued us (and he is the only person who has sued us), however the judge already ruled in our favor.
