Easily Buy a Metal Carport or Metal Garage Building

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Sep 29, 2012

You can easily buy a metal carport or metal garage building

At Alan's Factory Outlet we here to help make it easy for you whether your looking to buy metal carport or buy metal garage.  Most purchases fall into two categories of a residential or commercial metal building.

From the start when your researching what kind of carport or garage to buy, to the order process, Alan is there to help make buying a metal building as easy as possible.

The first step is to figure out the kind of metal building structure are your looking for?  Do you just need a steel carport cover or do you need a fully enclosed steel garage.

Once you have decided the type of steel building you will want to figure out the tallest item you will store or place underneath it to help figure out how tall of legs you will want.  Another option if you want a little more protection than an aluminum carport cover but don't need a totally enclosed garage you can just close the sides, close the gables which is the triangle part under the roof line on the ends.  You could close the back end or partially enclose the sides with one or two panels.  Keep in mind that each panel is 3' wide so one panel will bring the sides down 3' and 2 panels will bring it down 6'.  Many of the customers who buy the metal rv motorhome carport like to partially close the sides for a little more protection from the suns rays.

If your buying a metal garage you will want to figure out the size of the garage door to be able to pull your car, truck, boat, farm equipment or motor home inside.

Do you want to buy an uncertified or certified metal building?

  • Most of the metal carports and metal garages are priced uncertified which means they do not come with any blue print drawings.
  • To make it certified it is a little bit more expensive because it has to be built different to match the blue print drawings.  This means it will be fully braced, extra screws used to assemble it, mobile home anchors or additional concrete anchor bolts and of course come with the drawings which are emailed approximately 2 to 3 days after you order the carport or garage.

You can make the steel carport or steel garage fully braced or with mobile home anchors to make it stronger without making it certified.

Another upgrade which has nothing to do with certified or uncertified but is another way to help make the building stronger is a thicker 12 ga tubing which comes with a 20 year rust through warranty.  They come standard with 14 ga tubing which does not come with any rust warranty unlike the thicker 12 ga tubing.

The one thing you will want to make sure is that you have a level area for the building to be placed.  If the gravel pad or cement slab is more than 3 to 4 inches out of level we will not be able to install it.  If the location you want to put it is not level you can get it level by scraping it out or building the land up.

Most of the metal carports and metal garages are installed in one day for a quick easy installation process.  This allows you to start enjoying your new building sooner rather than later.
