Be Prepared for Any Weather

Within the past few months, we’ve seen how the weather can be so unpredictable. An unexpected storm can come right at us at any time, especially during the transition of the seasons. Although the cold weather is about to come to an end for many regions, there’s nothing wrong with being prepared for next year. Now you might be thinking, what’s the ideal metal building for me? Well, American Steel Carports offers a wide variety of metal structures that are suitable for a variety of purposes.

A recommendation for our friends up north is the fully vertical buildings. If you want a structure that doesn’t require that much maintenance, then our vertical feature is the best choice for you. Vertical panels allow snow, water, leaves, and debris to slide off easily, especially on the roof. Another important feature of vertical siding is that it can be insulated. Here is a good example of an all-vertical and smooth metal building measuring 24’W x 36’L x 10’H:

  • 12-Gauge Galvanized Tubing
  • (2) 10’x8′ Roll-Up Doors
  • 36″x80″ Walk-In Door
  • (2) 30″x30″ Windows
  • Fully Insulated

If this is a building that you might be interested in, give us a call now and ask to speak with one of our representatives! Remember that we offer financing and rent-to-own in most of our service areas.

What exactly am I getting when I purchase from American Steel Carports?

  • 1-year workmanship warranty
  • 20 years of rust-through of framing warranty on our 12-gauge units
  • An engineer-certified structure
  • Delivery and installation INCLUDED in the price
  • All of the recommended bracing INCLUDED in the price

Protection No Matter the Size

Metal sheds are an important addition to your property because they’ll keep your belongings protected. Farm equipment or working tools left sitting outside can be affected by the natural elements. That’s why it’s so important to maintain your belongings, including keeping them protected. American Steel Carports can help you build a metal shed or garage that meets your unique needs and specifications. And with 20 years of experience in the carport industry, our buildings are well-made and long-lasting.

Aside from the additional options we offer, such as colored screws, insulation, and skylights (to mention just a few), there are always the simple metal buildings that never fail. If you need any of those specific features, you’re more than welcome to add them, but you can always keep your building simple. Take this 20’W x 31’L x 9’H fully vertical in our clay and slate blue colors:

  • (1) 9’x7′ Roll-Up Door
  • (1) 36″x 80″ Walk-In Door
  • (1) Window (on the side)

One of the main advantages of a fully vertical building is the ability to fully insulate it. Insulation can only be installed on panels running vertically. Another advantage of fully vertical buildings is easy maintenance. Because the panels run vertically, it allows debris, water, snow, leaves, etc. to slide off easily.

Some Things to Know About Steel Building Insulation

We know that metal is a good conductor of cold and heat, and when temperature shifts inside or outside the metal building, water tends to condense on the metal sheets.

Insulation can be used to avoid the issue of water condensation. When heat transfers from the outside to the inside of a building, the insulation works as a barrier.  Additionally, by reducing the temperature of the metal, the insulation reduces condensation.

The definition of R-Value is “the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.”  (Webster Dictionary)

Types of Insulation:

There are various styles of insulation. We’ll look at some below while highlighting the benefits.

Loose Fill Insulation

Loose-fill insulation consists of small particles of fiber, foam, or other materials. The most common types of materials used for loose-fill insulation include cellulose, fiberglass, and mineral (rock or slag) wool. (1)

This type of insulation is installed by blowing it into tiny holes that persist in the walls. It is one of the most environmentally-friendly, and it is a good way to save money on utility expenses.

Blanket Insulation

Blanket insulation is the most common and widely available type of insulation. It comes in the form of batts or rolls. It consists of flexible fibers, most commonly fiberglass. You also can find batts and rolls made from mineral (rock and slag) wool, plastic fibers, and natural fibers, such as cotton and sheep’s wool.  (2)

This is mainly for recently installed buildings.  Large rolls are used to fill pre-cut gaps in buildings. It must be installed correctly or it won’t function properly.

Rigid Board Insulation

Rigid foam can be used in walls, roofs, and foundations, for retrofits or new construction. Most varieties of foam have a higher R-value per inch than fiberglass, cotton, or cellulose. Rigid foam sheets are sold in several thicknesses; most lumberyards carry insulation ranging from 1/2 in. to 2 in. thick. Thicker sheets (up to 6 in. thick) are usually available by special order. (3)

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is an insulation and air barrier material that seals walls, floors and ceiling cavities against air movement. It’s often used in spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures, and also where walls meet windows and doors. (4)
