Since the 1980s, MCN has honored the top metal construction contractors based on the tonnage of steel purchased in the previous year. The feature started with a ranking of the top metal contractors for the 1980s. It then became an annual event that identified the top 100 metal builders ranked according to total tonnage for both metal buildings and roofing. In 1993, those categories were split into annual listings of Top Metal Builders and Top Metal Roofers. Starting in 2004, the Top Metal Builders list was split into one for tonnage and one for square footage.
