The Perfect Addition to Your Property

Still debating if you should get that metal building you’ve been thinking about? Don’t wait too long before our busy season gets here!


Multipurpose metal buildings are our top sellers throughout the entire year. Aside from providing storage spaces, they can also be used as garages or even workshops. And with so many customizations available, we can create the perfect steel building for you!


Some of our customers prefer openings rather than actual roll-up doors, which can be another option if you’re trying to save money. Take this 18’W x 31’L x 9’H as an example:



This metal building comes with our A-frame horizontal roof (boxed eave), a walk-in door, and a 12’ x 9’ opening that’s wide enough for your big toys!


Remember that all of our buildings can be customized. If you’re looking at a metal building that’s similar to what you want but has different dimensions, we can quote it for you! Call us now to speak with one of our experts, and don’t forget to ask about our financing options. Want to see our buildings in person? Ask for your local dealer!

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.

Custom Metal Carport

What if you want an open carport but you need the extra spacing on the sides?


At American Steel Carports, we want to accommodate all your needs. When it comes to carports, there are many ways to customize your building. Whether it’s an open carport or an enclosed metal building, we can help you personalize it.


Take a look at this 18′W × 26′L × 12′H from one of our customers in New Mexico. This custom carport has two 10′ headers, offering generous clearance and enough space for two decent-sized vehicles. Even with only one side in the carport, it provides enough shade for vehicles.


A-Frame Vertical Roof


Vertical Side


Horizontal Gable End


2 – 10 ft Headers


Concrete Anchors (90-mph Wind Warranty)


*Disclaimer: interior designs may vary by state or region. Above design is good for only for 30 PSF (ground snow load) may require additional trusses to meet local codes. Lateral support might be required based on wind loads*


Remember, you don’t need a concrete slab for most of our units under 30′ wide. However, it is important for your ground to be level in order for us to install your unit.



What are the wind rating and snow load?


American Steel Carports offers a 90-mph wind warranty with the purchase of all the anchors your unit needs. But this doesn’t mean we can’t certify your unit against even stronger winds. Please check with your county before making a purchase.


Snow loads also play a significant role, especially in northern states. Most of our units are certified for 30 lbs/ft2. But we can still certify your metal building according to your county’s requirements and specifications.

One of our most recent buildings, comes with fully vertical walls and ends, perfect for snowy areas. Due to the panels running vertically (from the peak to the eaves), it allows elements such as dirt, snow, water, leaves, dust, etc. to slide off easily, making it a low-maintenance building. It also has a vertical colonial style or wainscoting:


• 18’W x 26’L x 9’H

• 14 Gauge Galvanize Tubing

• Fully Vertical

• 2 – 10 x 8 Roll-Up Doors (one on each side)

• 5 Windows (on the side)

• 12’W x 26’L x 9’/8’H Lean-To

Amazing Metal Buildings Come from Amazing Ideas.

Most of our designs come from our customers’ most valuable ideas—the ideas that complement the very idea of what a metal building is. Customization helps us implement these ideas.

When it comes to customized metal buildings, our clients’ biggest fear is that our units won’t withstand harsh weather. To verify your specific local wind rates, you’ll have to contact your city’s building department. But the main protection we offer is the addition of anchors. We do offer rebar anchors (temporary anchors) for free, although they don’t come with any guarantee. Much better are our asphalt and concrete mobile home anchors, which have a warranty for winds of up to 90 mph.

What happens if the winds are stronger?

If the winds are stronger, we start by adding more trusses. In some cases, we add bigger peak and corner braces.

American Steel Carports does not do any concrete work, but we do offer our customers recommendations for concrete foundations. This a good example of one of our customers in Portales, New Mexico:

22′ x 26′ x 10′

A-Frame Horizontal Roof

14-Gauge Galvanize Tubing

3 – 9×7 Roll-Up Doors (2 on left side, 1 on right side)

36×80 Walk-In Door (front end)

12′ x 26′ x 10’/8′ Lean-To

Continuous Roof

25′ Double Bar Header (for Lean-To)

*DISCLAIMER: Headers may vary upon county regulations or snow loads. Prices are subject to change at any time without notice. Please contact our sales department for our latest prices.*
