If you’re unsure about which type of steel building to install on your property, our experts at Shed Gal are here to help. We provide a detailed breakdown of the various metal building options available, guiding you through everything from selecting the right roof style to determining the ideal square footage. Here’s a closer look at the options:

Regular Horizontal Metal Buildings

Our regular horizontal roof style metal garages are an economical choice for protecting your vehicles and valued possessions. Key features include:

  • Material: 14-gauge galvanized steel with center bracing and 29-gauge metal roofing.
  • Design: Rounded eaves and a bow or truss created by bending the material, with roofing panels running from front to back.
  • Protection: Strong and stable, designed to withstand rain, ice, and heavy snow loads.
  • Height Clearance: Suitable for SUVs, trucks, and other vehicles.
  • Recommendation: For garages longer than 31 feet, we recommend upgrading to a vertical roof style to prevent potential leaks at the seams.

A-Frame Horizontal Steel Garages

Our A-frame horizontal roof style metal garages offer a classic look combined with durability:

  • Material: 14-gauge galvanized steel with center bracing and 29-gauge metal roofing.
  • Design: Similar to the regular horizontal style but with a different aesthetic appeal.
  • Protection: Effective against harsh weather conditions, providing excellent storage for vehicles and other items.
  • Height Clearance: Adequate for various vehicle sizes.
  • Recommendation: Ideal for those who prefer the A-frame look but still need a cost-effective solution.

Vertical Roof Style Steel Buildings – Recommended

For the best in strength and longevity, our vertical roof style metal garages are the top choice:

  • Material: Requires an underlayment of 18-gauge hat-channel for added rigidity and strength.
  • Design: Roofing panels are laid vertically from the peak to the eaves or sides, allowing efficient runoff of water, snow, and leaves.
  • Protection: Prevents rust and wear by ensuring debris doesn’t accumulate on the roof.
  • Recommendation: Highly recommended for all sizes, especially for those in areas with heavy snowfall or frequent rain.
