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.
