This is What Customization is About!

Why should you choose American Steel Carports over any other company?


American Steel Carports offers a variety of customizations when it comes to our buildings. In fact, we let our customers come up with their own individual ideas for their metal buildings. No matter how crazy it might sound or how big the structure needs to be, we’ll ensure that your building will be built to last for a really long time.


Customers might have their own ideas for their custom metal units, but it’s up to the company to turn those ideas into real buildings. In fact, sometimes the idea might sound complicated and a little confusing for the customer, but the vendor will fully understand how the building is going to look. That’s why we provide free sketches for perfect visualization. Remember, at the end of the day, it’s you who we’re trying to please and successfully provide with a great experience.



So, when we say “custom”…how custom are we really talking about?


A metal building can be considered custom due to many factors. You can add two roll-up doors on the side or an overhead door, make your building a utility—you name it. All of these changes can be considered custom. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t go over the top with your unique ideas.


If you want to know what we’re talking about, take a look at this wild 30’W x 60’L x 12’W building:

*Don’t let the dimensions fool you: this metal building is full of surprises!*



One of the things that might seem very odd is the orientation of the windows. When we said that we let our customers come up with their own bright ideas, we really meant it! This customer wanted the windows to be placed in that position. Another cool feature is the big amount of roll-up doors and the fact that the building is fully insulated, giving you an idea of what it might be used for.


You can order a building just like this and adjust the size or the amount of windows and doors. The choice is yours!

Live in the North? You’d better watch out for the Snow!

Vertical siding buildings are the most recommended when it comes to states that get a lot of snow. The vertical roof allows natural elements like snow, water, dirt, leaves, and dust to slide off easily without the need for constant maintenance, unlike other roof styles. And if the vertical roof can give you all that, imagine having vertical sides! It would definitely make your metal garage maintenance-free!


Another cool feature that we offer is our overhead doors. These doors create more of a residential look, and they can actually be connected to a garage opener. Please keep in mind that American Steel Carports does not offer that type of service: we would only provide the installation of your metal building and the overhead door.


This 18’W x 26’L x 10’H metal garage is a perfect example of a fully vertical (a.k.a., maintenance-free) building:


• 16’x7′ Overhead door

• 4 – 30″x30″ Windows (2 on the side)

• 36″x80″ Walk-In Door (on the side)



There are many ways to customize your metal garage! Before making a purchase, though, it’s recommended that all of our customers talk with their local building departments to get the necessary permits. Remember that not all states and counties are the same: some might require additional plans or calculations, while others would take the generic plans. Also, know that our generic plans come free when you place your order with us.


Give us a call and let one of our experts help you build that garage of your dreams! Does your area have a higher snow load? Let our experts know, and we’ll work with your requirements until we meet them. Want to see our buildings in person? Call us and ask for your local dealer! And don’t forget to ask about our financing options.
