You don’t need to work in construction to understand what an A-Frame garage is, or why it is desirable. The roof is shaped like an ‘A’, and thanks to that shape, this kind of building does a great job of dealing with tough weather conditions. What you might not know, however, is that there are two distinct styles of A-Frame steel garages that we offer—vertical and horizontal roof.
These names reflect the orientation of the metal sheets that form the roof. A horizontal A-Frame is one that has the sheets running horizontal along the roof, while these run up and down in a vertical model. Generally speaking, a horizontal roof will be more affordable, as less structure is required under the roof for support. On the other hand, the vertical orientation helps to shed precipitation, so it is commonly the right choice when heavy snows are expected. Also, a vertical roof will be preferred for larger garages.
