You could also use storage sheds for gardening, arts and crafts, reading, yoga, or as a home office. Here at American Steel Carports we give you the ability to adjust your shed just the way you want it. This particular shed is one created from one of our many appreciated customers from Illinois.

18’ x 25’ x 8’ Steel Shed

Have a project in mind? Not sure when your pad would be ready? Maybe you just need some time to visualize your project. Whatever scenario best describes your situation, American Steel Carports is here to take care of your needs!

When it comes to protecting your belongings, you want to make sure that you work with a company that will provide you with the best quality materials available and stands behind their product. American Steel Carports offers you a one-year workmanship warranty that will allow your steel structure to go through all four seasons. Because of this, you can definitely say that we stand behind our product (lol).

With the bad weather all over the country, you do not want to take any chances when it comes to your precious belongings. With 20 years of experience in the carport industry, we know exactly how to create long-lasting metal buildings that will withstand anything that mother nature throws at them. Take a look at this sturdy 18’W x 25’L x 8’H steel shed:

  • A-Frame Vertical Roof
  • 12-Gauge Galvanized Tubing
  • 9’x7′ Roll-Up Door
  • (2) 30″x30″ Windows
  • 36″x80″ Walk-In Door

American Steel Carports can do any size according to your needs and requirements. For this particular building, our customer decided on a base of 24’L and a roof length of 25’.

Now you might be wondering, why the one-foot difference? On this 18’ x 25’ structure, the frame of the building itself will be 18’ x 24’ due to the 6” overhang on the roof. In other words, the roof is always one foot longer than the frame.

30’ x 61’ x 11’ Partially Enclosed Building

At American Steel Carports we like to provide our customers with exactly what they want. Whether you’re looking for a metal structure fully customized or the most simple and standard carport, we’re here to provide you with an engineer-certified metal structure that will stand strong for many years!

The needs of every individual will vary based on the area they live in. Our top sellers are carports, always popular in rural areas where our customers need to protect their vehicles from the natural elements. Carports are less spacious compared to other metal buildings. On the other hand, we also have customers who have the space on their land to build big metal buildings for all their personal needs, such as garages, workshops, man caves, you name it!

Take a look at this particular 30’W x 61’L x 11’H partially enclosed metal building:

This metal building doesn’t have a full covered end, but it still has the framing, as well as two 16’ x 9’ openings on the side. Remember that if you’d like to provide your own garage door, we can create the openings for you (at an additional price). What would you use this metal building for?

“She-Shed”, She Said.

From the he-shed to the man cave to the him nest to the guy refuge to the classic He-Man Woman Haters Club (from The Little Rascals), it seems guys always have their space to retreat to (and rightfully so) – BUT why shouldn’t women have something similar? We can give you a SHE-SHED with all the items to make a girly getaway, such as a workshop for all your Cricut and scrapbooking needs, a place for a tanning bed, or a shop where you can create.

These She-Sheds give you a space to get away to be alone or to work with the ones you love in an inviting atmosphere. Whether you are showing your daughter how to be creative and entrepreneurial or learning from your grandma, there is no better way to come together than to create together.

American Steel will work with you to custom build the unit to your specs and allow you to design the interior however you like. Every unit is engineer-certified, and we use high-quality steel that will protect your belongings. Additionally, our reps are great at working with you in a stress-free buying environment.

Fall Season

The temperature is dropping, and Halloween and Thanksgiving are right around the corner. Shades of brown and orange are all over and as trendy as always for this time of year! The fall season is making itself felt. Well, at least it is in Texas. Of course, not everything is about being super fashionable and staying on top on what’s trending. The downside of fall is the leaves everywhere.

Watching leaves change color as the weather transitions can be a pleasant experience for some people, especially those who enjoy outdoor photography. That contrasting orange background makes for some amazing pics. However, did you know that leaves can damage vehicles? As crazy as it sounds, leaves left to sit on vehicles for long periods can destroy the paint! Most experts and care-car gurus recommend keeping your vehicles safely parked beneath some kind of structure that will protect against leaves and other tree debris. Have you thought about building a metal carport? Why don’t we show you how a new carport can protect your vehicles during fall? Take a look at this 18’W x 31’L x 10’H example:

This metal carport will definitely help you keep your vehicles protected throughout both fall and winter. Our vertical roof allows natural elements such as leaves, water, debris, and snow to slide off easily. Unlike other types of roof styles, our design eliminates the need for constant maintenance. In addition, this building is rocking the fall colors! If you’re all about fashion, then make a statement by adding a three-color carport to your property (rawhide sides, earth brown roof, and evergreen trim).

Let’s get you what you’re looking for! Give us a call now, and ask to speak with one of our sales representatives. We will help you build the structure of your dreams just in time for fall and winter. Don’t forget to ask about our available financing options.

Ready for the fall?

We’re transitioning from green, blossoming, and sunny weather, to colder weather with leaves everywhere. Fall might be many people’s favorite season, but for those who don’t like leaves on their vehicles, it might be pretty annoying. Why not keep your vehicle protected from the dust, leaves, and other natural elements with a steel carport that will stand strong against the beauty of nature?

Our company has been dedicated to building long-lasting steel structures for over 20 years. These light and portable metal buildings can be used to protect your vehicles, RVs, or any other belongings that are exposed to nature. Don’t think that the fact that these structures are light and portable means they are flimsy and cheap. In fact, we provide the exact opposite! Our metal structures are engineered with strength and durability in mind.

Take a look at the unique design of this 18’W x 26’L x 10’H partially enclosed standard carport:

Aside from rocking our Earth Brown color, the unique design of the sides of the carport going only 9’ long is very interesting, don’t you think?
