New Tariff on Steel

It looks like the price of steel will be going up more and more here in the United States within the next few months. As such, we highly suggest that you purchase your metal carport or building prior to the tariff on steel imports goes into effect. Due to this nationwide increase in the cost of steel, we and many other carport companies will be increasing the prices of most of our buildings.
On March 8th, 2018, in hopes of reviving our domestic steel industry by opening closed mills and reducing the need to rely on foreign producers of steel products, President Trump signed Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act to impose a 25% tariff on steel imports from all countries except Mexico and Canada. According to the president, this new tariff will also provide a form of national security.

Although our company makes it a mission to purchase all American-made materials, we will still feel the strain of steel prices increasing. American Steel Carports, Inc. and American Carports, Inc. will work hard to keep our prices as low as possible while still providing the best in steel carports and buildings nationwide. We still suggest placing your orders within the next few months to ensure that you receive the lowest price possible. Remember that we have an excellent sales team who will work with you to design the perfect metal building for your needs. Give us a call and ask to speak with one of our representatives, and don’t forget that we offer financing.

Plenty of Space for Your Toys!

There’s still plenty of time to get your metal garage before summer gets in the way! As you know, it’s very important to keep our valuables and vehicles under a roof. If you want them to last a long time, they need to be protected from sun damage and harsh weather.


The key to our metal buildings is that we will customize and transform them according to your needs and preferences; not to mention that ALL our buildings are engineer-certified!


Although American Steel Carports does not offer any concrete work, furthermore, we will provide concrete anchors to secure your structure—not to mention that you can get our 90-mph wind warranty when you purchase all the anchors needed. Take this 24’W x 51’L x 9’H metal garage as an example:


• A-Frame Vertical Roof
• Horizontal Sides & Ends
• 2 – Walk-in Doors (diamond window)
• 4 – 30″x30″ Windows (2 on each end)
• 4 – 10’x8′ Roll-Up Doors (on the side)



This metal garage has a vertical roof, one of the best roof styles we offer. Besides its pleasant-looking residential style, it allows natural elements such as snow, dirt, water, and leaves to slide off very easily. Also, once a metal building exceeds 30’ in length, we recommend choosing a vertical roof to eliminate the possibility of leaks in the future. Another important fact, is having your roll-up doors on the side can give you plenty of advantages when it comes to this type of building, since it’s cheaper to grow in length than in width.


Your metal garage is just one call away! Ask to speak with one of our sales representatives who will help customize your metal building according to your needs. Also, don’t forget to ask about our financing options. Want to see our buildings in person? Ask for your local dealer!

Add Value to Your Property

Aside from the options for customizing your metal building, there are many reasons to add one of our structures to your property. These are not only the obvious reasons, but also certain benefits that you might not know about yet. The carport industry has recently gone through many changes, and so have we. As such, we have made a large amount of improvements to our products with the help of our highly skilled engineers.


One of the biggest benefits of owning a metal carport is protecting your belongings from the weather. Even when you park your vehicle under a shady tree, the normal heat and light from the sun can increase the temperatures inside, causing extensive damage over time. The best alternative is to park it under a metal carport or garage. This will decrease the amount of damage caused by weather factors.


Do you know that you can also reduce criminal activity with a metal carport? As crazy as it sounds, if you keep the area well-lit, it can be repellent to criminal activity against your vehicle because of the increased visibility.


Since we’re talking about metal carports, why not taking a look at this 22’ x 36’ x 12’ standard carport?


• 3′ Sides

• Gable End (back end)

•12-Gauge Galvanized Tubing


It’s spacious enough to cover an RV or any other type of big vehicle. Remember that we can always change the dimensions according to your needs. If you need us to go taller than 12’, we can do it!


Give us a call! Let our experts help you customize your metal carport/garage. Don’t forget to ask about our financing options. Remember, you can place your order with only a 10% down payment!

Partially Enclosed RV Cover

Looking for an RV cover?


A camper or a trailer can be a beneficial investment, especially if you use it as a home away from home. However, we need to make sure that we protect our investments so that they last for a really long time. The sun is the number-one element that can damage our RVs. That’s why a metal RV cover is the best option for you!


Some of our customers think it’s expensive to purchase a metal RV cover, since they believe that they need to pour a concrete pad on their land to secure the structure to the ground. That can be done, but only if it’s what our customers really want. There’s no need to pour a concrete pad for your metal RV cover if you don’t want to, since we can anchor the unit to the ground as long as it’s leveled.


For example, look at this metal RV cover installed on the ground:


24’W x 31’L x 12’H

• 14-Gauge

• Standard Roof

• 3′ Side & 9′ Side

• Horizontal End

Mobile Home Anchors


With our mobile home anchors, your metal building can be secured directly to the ground. If you want additional protection, furthermore, you can add our 90-mph wind warranty when you purchase all anchors needed.


The only way to ensure that your RV is fully protected, however, is to make sure that it’s shielded by a metal structure like a carport or garage. Lucky for you, we sell both! If you don’t have one, then there’s not much you can do to make sure that your RV won’t be damaged.

All Vertical Garage


Want to have real garage doors?


At American Steel Carports, we don’t only offer roll-up doors. We also have overhead doors to give you a residential look and quality. Our garages doors come in a standard design, meaning they don’t have windows or insulation,  but you can upgrade overhead doors with glass windows, and if the unit will be fully insulated, you can insulate the door too! Our overhead doors are also compatible with garage openers.


Look at this fully vertical metal garage rocking our overhead doors:


26’W x 31’L x 11’H


• 12-Gauge Galvanized Tubing


Fully Vertical


• 2 – 10′ x 10′ Overhead Doors


• 36″ x 80″ Walk-In Door (on the side)


• Concrete Anchors (90-mph wind warranty)



*Disclaimer: interior designs may vary by state or region*


What are the advantages of a fully vertical garage?


One of the main advantages is low maintenance. Because the panels run vertically, they’re also more strongly recommended for northern areas, especially places with heavy snowfall.


How do I have my building certified for the snow loads in my area?


Our buildings are already certified for 20 psf. But if your area has heavy snow loads, we can certify our buildings to withstand those too. On top of that, vertical siding WILL NOT let snow accumulate on the roof or cause it to collapse.


We’re almost into summer, and the elevated temperatures will make it a good idea to acquire a metal garage to protect your vehicle from the blazing sun. Keep your car in the shade to prevent the paint from fading and cracking.


Give us a call! We can help you picture the metal garage of your dreams! Remember, delivery and installation are FREE on your level land or concrete pad. Want to see more buildings? Click here or go to our blog for more recently installed metal buildings and valuable information.
