Quick and Easy

Most importantly the construction process of a metal building is fast. Furthermore, metal is a very strong and durable material. They are constructed easier and faster from constructions of alternative materials mainly because the sections or panels are pre-built from sheets of metal. The sections are easily transported and assembled, and your metal garage can be erected in a matter of days or weeks, not months

A garage will add value to your property if you are thinking about the future, something good to know, especially when it’s a large investment.

Less Money Cost

Metal garage buildings are inexpensive constructions that offer many advantages, with costs much lower compared to concrete blocks, wood, or brick construction. They are affordable, cost-effective, and structurally-sound structures. In addition, the construction cost is lower which is an additional saving.

Easier Maintenance

Metal buildings are easier to maintain, they require less maintenance and if the garage has the right coating and paint you will not have to re-paint it for years. The cleaning process is also easier.

Environmental Friendliness

Metal garage buildings are environmentally friendly as metal is a green product and the material is fully recyclable.

They also are very customizable, meaning they give you a variety of different ways to adjust it and give it your own touch.

Any of these choices work best for us. Our priority is for all our customers to get their desired carport.

You can start off from something basic to putting as much detail as you would like .

  • Standard Roof
  • 2 ends
  • 2 sides
  • (1)- 10 x 10 RUD

March Madness

It’s almost summer time and what could be better than buying an affordable carport within your budget to protect your vehicles. The number one kind of protection is against UV exposure. As you know, sunlight can be extremely damaging to vehicles.  We believe that those thousands of dollars you invested in your vehicle could easily be destroyed by the sun. American steel carports provide you with one of the most durable materials you can find. The carports provided by American Steel Carports are provided with what is called galvanized steel construction.

Galvanized steel carports effectively resist rust, corrosion, and chipping. We offer 12 and 14-gauge carports. Both different kind of tubing come with a one-year workmanship included, but only the 12 gauge has the 20-year rust warranty. Afar from the material these metal carports ensure reliable protection against all kinds of circumstances depending your location.

Now, imagine this 21’W x 22’L x 7’H carport on the side of your house, protecting your twenty-thousand-dollar car, what more can you want, but there is no end there. You can customize this carport according to your needs and preferences! Maybe 21’ wide is not big enough for your vehicles, or perhaps you’d prefer a different roof style. Want to enclose the carport and make it a metal garage? The decision is all yours.

All our metal units are engineer-certified and ready to withstand anything that mother nature will throw their way! Curious about the price? Give us a call to speak with one of our experts. We can help you customize your unit and stay in budget! Ask for your local dealer when you call.

Is One Not Enough? How About Two?

If you’re at the point where the width of the building you need is surpassing your budget, you might want to consider two separate buildings instead. American Steel Carports is here to provide you with buildings that will serve your needs with high-quality materials for an unbeatable price!

We always like to help our customers reduce the price of any metal building without sacrificing space. An important factor of a building’s price is the increase in length compared to width. Although our metal buildings can go as wide as 80’, extra-wide structures like these can come with a high price. However, when you decide to increase in length, instead of width, you can save yourself a lot of money. The other option is to obtain a second unit with the exact same specs.  This can also save money in comparison to increasing width.

Another advantage of staying within 30’ wide is that once a unit surpasses 30’ wide, it needs to be installed on a concrete pad, due to the increased weight of material used. See how two metal buildings can save you some money? Don’t believe us? Well, let us show you this customer who decided to get two identical carports for his heavy-duty equipment, each one measuring 30’W x 21’L x 12’H:

  • 12-Guage Galvanized Tubing
  • Standard Roof
  • Diagonal Bracing
  • (2) Extras Trusses

All our metal units are engineer-certified and ready to withstand anything that mother nature will throw their way! Curious about the price? Give us a call to speak with one of our experts. We can help you customize your unit and stay in budget! Ask for your local dealer when you call.

Standard is Not Basic

Our triple-wide units – ranging from 26’ to 30’ in width – have been very popular this year. You can use one of these as a big garage if you have multiple vehicles or even as your own shop where you can work on your vehicles.

One of the biggest confusions we’ve seen throughout the years is that many of our customers assume that, because the width of the unit overpasses the standard size, it isn’t eligible for a Standard roof. Well, this is completely FALSE. Any unit that’s under 30’ in width has the option to go for a Standard roof, keeping in mind that our Standard roof is the most economical choice (since it’s included in the base price). However, once a unit overpasses 30’ in width, then it’s considered a Wide Span, meaning it must have a Vertical roof.

This 30’W x 51’L x 12’H Standard triple-wide unit is a great example of what we’re talking about:

  • 12’x12′ Roll-Up Door
  • Walk-In Door
  • 2 – Windows
  • L-Brackets

Although this roof option is one of the most affordable ones, it might not be the best when it comes to areas that received a large amount of snowfall every year. The reason is that snow and other natural elements will not slide off the Standard roof like on a Vertical roof, so you will have to make sure that there’s no snow building that could make the roof collapse beneath the added weight. Nevertheless, if you live in a dry area where snow is not a concern, then this might be the roof choice for you!

There are endless ways to customize your meal building – and with the help of our experts, you can find the metal building of your dreams! Call us now for a FREE estimate! And don’t forget to ask about our financing options!

Your Classic Protection, for the Lowest Price
