A-Frame Horizontal Roof vs. A-Frame Vertical Roof

There are many options on how to customize a carport or metal building. Roof styles being one of those options. Although the following two that we’re about to mention are not the only options available, they are our most popular options. They are also hard to choose from unless you fully understand the orientation and reasoning behind the price difference.


The A-Frame Horizontal Roof (Boxed-Eave) is popular due to its residential style look. The ridges on the roof run front to back in sync with the roof line. This style is commonly used in areas that do not have much snow or rain fall but are not limited to those area. The panels run horizontally, so the unit requires a little maintenance to keep debris from piling up along the ridges.

The A-Frame Vertical Roof is our upgraded roof option. The ridges on this roof style run top to bottom from the peak down to the eaves. This option is popular in regions with heavy snow and rainfall. The direction of the panels makes it easy for debris to run off smoothly. This style of roof is the most expensive due to the extra material and reinforcement required for installation. Although this roof style is popular in areas with lots of snow and rain, many customers across the country still opt for his option due to the easy maintenance, sturdiness and look.

Custom Utility Building


Utility buildings offer the advantages of a carport and a storage area at the same time. If you’re planning to customize your unit, you can even turn the utility building into a garage for additional space, especially if you have more than one vehicle. Remember that we will work with you according to your needs and whatever design you like the most.


Take this 18’(W) x 36’(L) x 10’(H) unit, for example:


• 14-gauge
• A-frame Vertical Roof
• Front Gable
• 2 – 15′ Headers
• 15′ Carport
• 20′ Enclosure (Sides & Ends)
• 2 – 8′ x 8′ Roll-Up Doors (front end)
• 6′ x 6′ Roll-Up Door (on the side)
• 36″ x 72″ Walk-In Door (on the side)
• Installed on Concrete



This metal building has a 20’ enclosure (20’ of garage), and the rest of the space (15’) is just the carport. Clearly, the enclosure will be used as a garage because of those roll-up doors. It can even be used to store machinery or equipment, if the owner wants a workshop.


We offer 12 different colors to choose from at no additional cost. Remember, we can install on any ground, as long as it is leveled. If you prefer to have your building installed on concrete, however, we can do that as well. Don’t forget to ask about our 90-mph wind warranty.
