Regular Style Metal Carports

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Wed, Jan 12, 2011

Alan's Factory Outlet regular style Metal Carports.  The regular style carports have a barn shaped roof line.  These are the most economical of the carport styles.  All carports come standard with center snow braces and 4 corner wind braces.  Additional braces are optional to make your carport fully braced.

12x21 Metal Carports, Steel Carports5' leg height is standard on metal carports.  You can make the carport taller in 1' increments up to 12' leg heights.  Here is picture of a 12x21 regular style carport with 1' taller 6' legs.
This carport also has a second option of J-Trim.  J-trim seems confusing like what does that mean?  Well to help it make sense for you the j-trim is the side trim piece that runs along both sides of the carport where the roof sheeting stops.  A couple advantages of getting j-trim is that is does set the carport off from an aesthetic standpoint.  It also makes the carport slightly stronger as it helps lock the sheeting in place.  One of the best benefits you get by having j-trim put on your carport is if lets say you get it with the standard 5' legs or 6' legs that means the sheeting on the side will come down at about 5' or 6' tall and the sheeting is 29 GA sheeting which doesn't feel good if you hit your head on it.  Having the j-trim may not still feel good if you hit your head on it but it may feel a little better as far as you just get a bump with a sore head as opposed to the chance of a cut if your head hits the sheeting just right.  So j-trim may be an option to think about.  Here is a picture to get a better look at the j-trim.

You can also take a steel building and close both sides for extra protection.  The ends can also be closed with a garage door on one end and you got yourself a fully enclosed metal garage.

Wood Storage Buildings or Metal Carports

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Tue, Jul 6, 2010

Storage Buildings, Sheds, Storage Sheds, Buildings Virginia, Storage Buildings VA 


















Wood Storage Buildings or Metal Carports are two great products which both can be used for a many different needs.

As everyone knows one is made of wood and the other made is made of Metal, but that is just the begining of the differences.

Alan's Factory Outlet Wood Storage Buildings are Prebuilt by the Amish and delivered on a truck and trailer.  The Wood Storage Buildings are custom built to meet your needs with the style, size and colors to match your home.  They come painted with a shingle roof.  They also have double doors with a lock and two keys.  The key point about the Wood Storage Buildings is that they are built like a house with 2x4 side walls and 2x4 roof joists both 16" On Center.  Extra Doors and windows can be added and you get to pick the location of the windows and doors.  Another thing about the Wood Storage Buildings is they are portable which means if you need them moved they can easily be moved.  Not only does Alan's Factory Outlet have Wood Storage Buildings but Vinyl Storage Buildings are available.   Carport Virginia, Carports VA, Metal Carports Virginia, Alan's Factory Outlet

Alan's Factory Outlet Metal Carports make a great cover for your Car, Truck, Boat or Farm Equipment.  Metal Carports are going to be more economical than the Wood Storage Buildings.  Another Advantage that the Metal Carports have is they are built on site so if you don't have enough room for a Prefabricated Wood Storage Building to be delivered the Metal Carport can be built on site.  At the same time that same advantage turns into a disadvantage if you need to move the metal carport.  The carport can still be moved however it is a lot harder and each time you take the carport apart and then put it back together it loses some of its strength.  Another point is the metal carports do not have a floor where the wood storage buildings come with a wooden floor.  Metal Carports can also be enclosed and turned into a metal Garages.

One thing both the Wood Storage Buildings and Metal Carports have in common is they are custom built in the colors you want and come in many different styles and sizes. 

Vist Alan's Factory Outlet Display lot at 643 West Main St. Luray, VA. 22835 to see the differences for yourself of the Wood Storage Buildings and Metal Carports.
