Tips to Consider Before Purchasing a Metal Building

Metal sheds and garages are perfect for storing belongings and getting rid of clutter. In addition to serving those and many other functions, metal buildings come in a wide array of options and appearances that look great on any property. When acquiring a shed, you want to make sure that you choose the most effective option for your purpose and space. These tips will help you get the most out of your new structure.

Consider Your Purpose – Before jumping into sizes, you should think about exactly how you will use your metal building, both now and in the future. Are you looking for a storage area, a garage, or perhaps a workshop? The use will determine the size and type of structure to fit your needs. We offer many varieties of steel buildings that are excellent for many purposes. For example:

  • Garages are a fast and economical way to house vehicles and toys.
  • Workshops come in a range of sizes and are great for craftsmen and builders.
  • Mini storage units are useful investments for those who live in neighborhoods and need more than garages for storage. Such storage units are small enough to keep in your backyard and, with a permit, can be installed wherever you desire. Additional storage for items such as bikes, fishing gear, and pet food frees up space in your garage. To make for an even more attractive structure, you can add a small porch and even hang plants from the roof.

Think Durability – Very few regions experience little change between the seasons. Indeed, many climates deal with long periods of extreme heat or cold and all manner of weather phenomena. In order to choose the best metal building, you need to consider your environment. Metal buildings can be specifically constructed to withstand snow, heatwaves, wind, and other conditions.

Make It Easy – Metal buildings don’t need to be complicated or difficult to understand. Although we sometimes go over the top regarding customization, manufacturing a standard building is easy. Remember that every single one of our buildings can be customized to serve your exact needs and likes, no matter how simple or complex.

Safety First – If you live in a windy area, then we highly suggest purchasing our 90-mph wind warranty. Depending on the surface of your installation site, we have packages that will help your metal building withstand those strong winds. Whether we use mobile home anchors or concrete anchors, we will make sure that your building stays sturdy for a very long time.

Choose a Good Site or Solid Foundation – Choosing a level area for your metal building will improve its appearance and keep it sold and sturdy for years to come. Also, be sure that your construction site is dry; this will prevent the foundation from shifting and stop mold and mildew from growing. For optimal performance, your building should be placed on a solid concrete foundation; however, that feature is totally optional.

If you really know what you’re looking for and follow the right procedures to get it, then owning a steel building can be a great experience. When you begin your next big investment, keep these important facts and tips in mind to ensure that you’ll spend the following decades enjoying your ideal metal structure.

Protecting your Investments Year-Round

In the summer months they are all over the highway, weaving in and out of lanes, onto the shoulders, across the center lines, and nearly into the ditch. Clearly, many people sitting behind wheels of large recreational vehicles are not used to driving 40-foot boxes on wheels, even without wind. Their poor driving skills are most obvious when they try to negotiate the most basic right and left turns.

Driving skills aside, have you ever wondered how much those gas-guzzling behemoths cost, especially since the average price of a passenger car has surpassed $31,000? In 2018, the average cost of a new recreation vehicle is around $135,500. Depending on the options, prices can range into the millions.

It’s unfortunate that having money to burn doesn’t mean having the skill to actually drive an RV safely! Regardless of this, given the size of their investments, owners of RVs want them to look good as long as possible, hopefully until they’re paid off. After all, who wants to drive around in a vehicle that looks like it belongs to Cousin Eddie? Not driving it would defeat its purpose, but owners at least want assurance that they can keep their six-wheeled monstrosities safe when they’re off the road.

Most people don’t own barns or garages large enough to house a 40- or 50-foot RV, so the most practical way to protect it from the elements is with a prefabricated metal building or metal RV carport. Although steel buildings are colloquially referred to as metal carports, they are available in sizes large enough to accommodate the biggest RVs. It’s also good to know that these carports are affordable. This makes them excellent options for owners of boats, motorcycles, and all-terrain vehicles who don’t want to pay for offsite storage. The bottom line is that anyone looking to shelter their expensive vehicles from snow, ice, rain, and sun can get durable protection without spending thousands of dollars.

Although metal carport prices vary, even the largest, most deluxe metal RV port will be considerably cheaper than rented storage space. Owners will know be happier knowing that their vehicles are safe and sound on their own premises.

f you live in an area with lots of adverse and unpredictable weather conditions, then you know how important it is to plan ahead and protect your vehicles during the winter months. If you haven’t made these preparations yet, you might want to buy a carport.

For example, hail, which is often not covered by car insurance, can be especially damaging to cars. In more than half the cases in which hail destroys the structural integrity of a car, the damages are not repaired. With the help of carport installers, however, you can ensure that your vehicle is not harmed by Mother Nature.

In particular, metal carports made of galvanized steel can be effective in multiple environments, from industrial settings to coastal areas. People who specifically near the ocean and own boats will find that these structures can protect their property well throughout the year.

An additional benefit of a steel carport is that it can be recycled in perpetuity without losing its strength or sustainability over the years. You can protect your prized possessions while being environmentally responsible.

When you choose a company to help you install your carport, you will want to base your decision on who can get the job done in a timely manner with the highest-quality materials. When it comes to protecting your property from the elements, it’s important to make sure that you have peace of mind and can go about your day during a nasty storm without worrying about the physical state of your vehicle.


Little Known Techniques to Customize Your Metal Building

So far, you’ve seen what we’re capable when it comes to metal structures. From huge warehouses to the simplest tiny carport for your vehicle, American Steel Carports knows it all. If you pay attention to certain details on other structures, you might notice that there are garages or workshops with features that you haven’t seen before in our products. Well, you’re absolutely right! Some of our customers prefer to provide their own walk-in doors, windows, or even just openings.

When you’re making an order or talking with one of our representatives, you can let us know that you will provide your own walk-in door or window. With the right measurements, all that’s left for us to do is to frame out the openings according to the size of your custom walk-in doors, windows, roll-up doors, etc. This 30’W x 41’L x 10’H is a good example of what we’re talking about:

  • A-Frame Vertical Roof
  • 12-Gauge Galvanize Steel
  • Horizontal Sides & Ends
  • 10’x10′ Roll-Up Door
  • Walk-In Door Frame Out
  • 2 – 3’x8′ Skylights
  • Concrete Anchors w/ L-Brackets

Openings like this walk-in door come with an additional price (depending on the size). The only downside of this option is that it will void any warranties that the building may have due to the modification of its original state.

This might be an option that many customers don’t need, but it is still open to be considered. If you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call and let one of our experts help you with your concerns. And don’t forget to ask for your local dealer!

Get Started on Your Future Project

Owning a metal building can be a simple matter if you follow the right procedures. Permits can be hard to obtain, depending on the county you’re located in, but it’s not impossible. The important thing is to know the dimensions you want for your building. Whether you’re considering getting a standard carport, a garage, a workshop, or even a barn, you have to decide how big it will to be. Of course, we can suggest sizes that might work, depending on what you will be storing inside, but remember, this is will be your property, and you know your own property better than anyone else.

After you decide on the size of the metal structure, you can consider whether you want any extra features, such as roll-up doors, walk-in doors, windows, or different styles of roof. You name it! Whatever idea you have for your metal structure, our specialists will know exactly how to work with it.


What about the positions of the doors and windows?

All our buildings are custom-made to satisfy your needs, so we will follow your plans and specifications.

  • A-Frame Vertical Roof
  • Horizontal Sides & Ends
  • 2 – 10’x8′ Roll-up Doors
  • 36″x80″ Walk-In Door
  • 2 – Windows

Metal garages like the ones we preview have become an inspiration for most of our customers. If they really like a building, they’ll stick with its size, features, and even colors. But you shouldn’t feel bound to a previous customer’s design; you can always change the dimensions, the placement of the doors and windows, and of course the color.
