  • What size carport do I need?

    For a standard 1-car carport, 12’x20’ is a good size; you may need to go to 25’ long if you have a decent size truck. For a 2-car carport, a 24x20’ would work, giving you extra space for opening your door. A 20x20 would fit two cars; however, it would be a tight fit. Increasing the width allows for more door space.

  • Does a metal building's size affect its price?

    The size of a metal building is a key factor in determining its cost. Generally, larger structures require more materials and labor during construction, resulting in higher prices.

This will help ensure the necessary permits are obtained, and the conversion is done under all applicable laws.

  • How does a metal garage handle heavy snow loads?

    Metal Garages are built and engineered to withstand extreme weather. Usually, this is done by decreasing the spacing between trusses to allow for a more significant snow load rating. In Texas, trusses can start at 5' Center to Center, while in Michigan, Trusses begin at 40" Center to Center.
