Another Barn!

Are you getting ready for the hot temperatures? Are all of your belongings stored and protected?


It’s simple to say that summer is still a long way from now, which is true – but by the time summer hits us, we’ve got to be ready for it. Since our headquarters is located in Joshua, TX, we know exactly how incredibly unstable our weather can be and how summer can arrive anytime.


We recommend that our customers check with their local building departments if their metal buildings meet the local codes before purchasing any of our units. Local codes from Texas may differ from those in any other state, especially if the building is going to be put up in an urban area.


One of the most popular buildings this year has been the ag barn. This barn can be used for many purposes. The most common one, of course, is as a barn, keeping livestock safe from the rain and intense heat. Some customers opt to enclose part of the lean-tos to store animal feed or farm equipment. On the other hand, there are customers who just love the design and prefer to use it as a garage for their vehicles. If you have land and space available, that would be a very interesting project.


Take a look at this metal barn installed near Chiloquin, OR:


• 20’W x 41’L x 12’H (main unit)

• A-Frame Vertical Roof

• Horizontal Siding

• 10×10 Roll-Up Door (front end)

• 36″x80″ Walk-In Door (front end)

• 2 – 30″x30″ Windows


• 10’W x 41’L x 10’/8’H Lean-Tos

• A-Frame Vertical Roof

• Horizontal Sides

• 2 – 9×7 Roll-Up Doors (one on each lean-to)

• Mobile Home Anchors



One of the main advantages of this barn is its vertical roof; since Oregon is a state with constant snow, the panels running from the peak toward the eaves allow snow to slide off without the need for constant maintenance, like other types of roofs.


Should you always go for a vertical roof?


Not necessarily. Although vertical roofs are the best choice when it comes to maintenance, if you live in an area that rarely gets snow, it’s not necessary. However, it’s highly recommended to get a vertical roof if your carport exceeds 30’ in length in order to avoid leaks in the future.


You can customize your metal building! Give us a call, and we will help you build the metal barn of your dreams. Remember that we also offer financing options if you need a little help purchasing your metal barn. Ask your representative about it.

Mini Storage Installed in New Mexico

It’s mini storage time!


In need of a metal storage building? Are you worried about the size? American Steel Carports is here for you to build that storage building according to your needs.


If the size of a storage building is one of your concerns, then it’s more likely that a mini-storage will work for you. Our mini storages tend to be more affordable than a regular enclosed building, with the same freedom of adding certain features; not to mention that all our mini storages come with a ¾” pressure treated wood floor.


Take this 12’W x 16’L x 7’H mini storage in 12-G installed in Tijeras, New Mexico as an example:



Most of our mini storages come with a 6’x6′ roll-up door or a walk-in door depending on the size of the mini-storage. This particular one does have a 6’x6′ roll-up door, it also has a vertical roof, and mobile home anchors.


Whether you’re wanting something a little shorter or less wide, our experts will help you build the perfect mini-storage for you.

Metal Storage Building

Looking for an affordable, strong, and well-built storage room? If the answer is yes, then American Steel Carports is your choice!


Our company has over 15 years of experience specializing in the carport industry. In other words, we know how to deliver a great experience when it comes to metal buildings. Whether you’re looking for a barn, a storage room, a mini-storage unit, or even a big workshop, American Steel Carports will be there to make sure that all of your needs and expectations are satisfied.


Remember that the buildings we post are just live examples of our customers’ creations and ideas. The dimensions and features such as doors, windows, colors, etc. can always be changed according to your needs and specifications. Another important fact to keep in mind is that concrete pads are always optional according to the type of building. If a building exceeds 30 feet in width, then it’s necessary to have a concrete pad, but anything below that can be installed on the ground or asphalt.


Take this 20’W x 21’L x 8’H storage building as an example:



This metal storage building is rocking our pewter gray color. It also has a 10’ x 8’ roll-up door and a 36” x 72” walk-in door on the side, and it comes with our 90-mph wind warranty when all of the required concrete anchors are purchased.


We have a variety of buildings and designs for you to choose from. Have additional questions? Give us a call! Let one of our sales representatives assist you with any questions you may have. Want to see more buildings? Click here for additional pictures and ideas.

RV Cover with flexibility

Don’t leave your second home unprotected! Let American Steel Carports help you build a carport that will keep your RV safe from inclement weather.


RVs offer us the freedom to travel around the country and beyond in the comfort of our own home. The ability to sleep in a cozy bed, maintain your privacy, and even cook without paying for a hotel room makes an RV a valuable investment that not many of us can afford. This means it’s important to protect your RV from the natural elements.


The sun can keep us warm, but it can harm our vehicles too, and this includes RVs. Some people park their RVs indoors at special facilities, but the cost can be high. So why not park and store your RV at home?


We work with skilled installers who can put up your metal RV cover in hours. Take a look at this 30’W × 46’L × 12’H cover we installed in Littlefield, Arizona:


This is just one example of what we can do. This customer chose to cover only part of the sides of the RV. If you want to customize your cover, our sales representatives can always help you and can provide you with a quote and even a sketch, if you want one.


We know that our metal buildings can be a big investment, but it’s important to keep in mind that they will stay strong and protect your vehicles from bad weather. Remember, we also offer financing options. Click here for more information.

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 Metal Carport

Exposing our belongings to harsh weather decreases their durability—and even if we live in areas where the weather is calm, the sun can be damaging as well. When it comes to vehicles, it’s important to remember that they need to remain in the shade; the sun itself can dry and crack your dash, not to mention the fact that direct exposure can double the temperatures inside and crack leather seats. That’s when American Steel Carports comes to the rescue. With our affordable metal buildings, we can provide you with a strong and effective metal shed for parking your vehicles or storing your belongings.



We offer a variety of buildings to choose from, but if all you need is a metal carport for your vehicle, then we can definitely help you. Our metal buildings come in various sizes, and knowing exactly what you want is key when purchasing a structure.


ALL of our metal buildings start with a standard or regular roof. The standard roof is a common choice, as its simple design is familiar and looks good with most properties. It’s also our most affordable option; take a look at this 30’W x 36’L x 12’H structure as an example:




This metal building is wide enough to be used in numerous ways. Also, remember that the colors can always be changed. This customer decided to go all green.

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.


Give us a call! If you ask to speak with a sales representative, our experts will help you customize your building according to your needs. We can also provide you with a free sketch so that you can visualize your metal building better.

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.

Simple Metal Storage Building

Simple can be enough to protect your valuable belongings.


At American Steel Carports, even the most common and simple designs are good enough to protect your belongings and add value to your property. When it comes to metal steel buildings, most of our customers want to customize. However, it doesn’t always have to be about customizing your entire building; in fact, we’ve seen a lot of customers opt for simple metal garages with one door or just a carport.


If you know what you’re looking for in your metal building and have the dimensions you want, then you’ve come to the right place. Take a look at this 20’W x 26’L x 10’H metal building:


• 10’x8′ Roll-Up Door


• 36″x80″ Walk-In Door


That’s what we refer to as a simple building, since it only comes with a single garage door, a walk-in door, and our A-Frame Horizontal roof (boxed eave). With 12 different colors to choose from at no additional charge, you can add your own personal touch. Remember that you can choose different colors for the roof, the side walls, and the trim if you’d like.
