The Benefits of Steel Structures

The steel buildings we offer here at Get Carports are designed and engineered with the highest-quality, galvanized steel components. Not only are they strong and durable, but they are versatile, long lasting, and easy to maintain. They also adapt very easily to your ever-changing needs, no matter if they are personal, residential, agricultural, or commercial. A few of the other benefits offered by our galvanized steel structures include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Rust, Fire, Mold, Mildew, and Pest Resistant
  • Easy to Install
  • Stronger
  • Cost-Effective
  • Affordable
  • And so many more!

Roof Styles

We offer several roof styles to choose from here at Get Carports, including our regular style (good), A-frame horizontal (better), and vertical (best). Each roofing system is a reliable option; however, it’s important to know everything about their unique designs and the benefits they offer.

Regular Roof Style
Our regular roofing system is the most economically built and priced option offered in the metal building industry. This standard, curved edge roof design is installed with horizontal paneling that easily channels all rain, snow, and other debris off the ends of the structure. Due to its simple framing, it is best suited for areas that only experience mild to moderate weather conditions.

A-Frame Horizontal Roof
Also referred to as a boxed-eave roofing system, our A-frame style option is designed to blend seamlessly with your home and other pre-existing structures. They are installed with horizontal panels and an overhang to keep all rain, snow, falling leaves, and other debris away from your vehicles and other property. We recommend it for warmer areas that typically only experience some high winds and very light precipitation.

Vertical Roof
The vertical roof style, which is also an A-frame style, is highly recommended for areas that are prone to extreme weather conditions. While it is built for all climate types, it is suitable no matter where you are located. They are installed with additional framing pieces and vertically aligned panels that protect your valuables from all weather conditions. Keep in mind, it is required for structures longer than 36’.

Standard Features

Our structures can be designed and tailored to your exact specifications, but there are also various standard options and prices to choose from. Some of these options do vary based on the area you are located in; for example, areas with higher snowfall ratings have standard, 4’ centers, whereas areas with less snowfall have 5’ centers. We’ve provided a list below with some of our standard sizes and available features.

  • Steel Gauge Framing Sizes – The industry’s standard framing size is our 14-gauge option with a diameter of 2 ½” x 2 ½”. We also offer a stronger, more durable steel framing with a diameter of 2 ¼” x 2 ¼”; 12-gauge. These framing options are available no matter where you’re located; however, there are some areas that require 12-gauge steel framing.
  • Anchors – We offer four different types of anchors here at Get Carports, including asphalt, concrete, mobile home, and rebar. These anchors are only used for specific foundation types, which your building specialist can provide more information about.
  • Certified or Non-Certified – Depending on the area you live in, you may or may not be required to certify your structure. While it depends on your location, the weather in your area, and the requirements of your local building department, you can always choose to certify your structure if it isn’t required.
  • Colors – In addition to our standard color options, there are also premium colors available to purchase. You can choose your ideal color combination from these colors for your roof, walls, and trim.
  • Additional Features – Other features we offer here at Get Carports include our garage doors, walk-in doors, windows, and roof styles. You can customize your metal building with these features, or you can ask your building specialist for assistance.
