Metal Barns

The word “barn” usually conjures up an image of an aging wood building painted red, but that’s the old-fashioned version. Today, we have the materials and technology available to build metal barns that will last much longer than wooden ones, and that’s exactly what Carport Central can do for you. Our custom metal barns are made of the highest quality steel, available in both 12-gauge and 14-gauge frames. Every barn that we build comes with a one year workmanship warranty, as well as a 20-year warranty on rust through on the 12-gauge and 14-gauge galvanized steel frames. We include these warranties because although we know our custom metal barns are very durable and can withstand a lot of use and abuse, we also want to back our product and give our customers a peace of mind.

As with all of Carport Central’s custom metal buildings, our barns can be fully customized. We have three roof styles- regular (horse), A-frame roof style, and vertical , with several color options to choose from. The center building and the Lean-To’s can be customized to fit your storage and sheltering needs. Some of the usual customization include open carport lean to, one with its center closed with the lean to open, fully enclosed or the most popular one – with the center open and the lean-To’s closed. The width of the Lean To’s is usually 12 feet but can be varied for customized needs of our customers. The available lengths of the metal barns buildings with Lean-To’s are 21′, 26′, 31′, 36′ and 41′ long. You can go longer than 41′. It is simply a matter of connecting two lean to buildings end to end. An end-to-end connection reduces the length of the building by one feet as the connection overlaps half a feet each side. 

We can also install custom windows and doors, or if you’d like to do that yourself, we’ll create the frame and let you handle the rest. For the barn’s doors, we can install either a roll-up door or an electric one, but the electric doors vary by location. Contact one of our customer service representatives today to talk about all of our custom metal barn options and see what we can do for you to get started on installing a beautiful, new building.

Barns have traditionally been used as shelter for livestock or horses, or for storage. We’ve built many barns that serve those purposes, but we can also build custom metal barns suited for many other uses. Barns can be utilized as offices, or additional working space. Metal Lean To Buildings; as they are usually referred to, have many advantages and can be used to protect whatever is underneath it from weather elements. You can use a Lean-To carport to protect your cars, cambers, boats, RVs and other vehicular assets from rain, hail, and storms.

There are many advantages to owning a lean to building. Whatever form it takes, a lean to building protects whatever is underneath it from various weather conditions. For instance, lean to carports protect cars, trucks, farm equipment, campers, and many other types of vehicles from the wind, rain, and snow. Not surprisingly, a vehicle that stands in water or endures too many storms is prone to rust. People who buy from our selection of lean to carports and lean to carport kits have a convenient form of shelter for their valuable vehicles. One of the very obvious advantage of buying a lean-to garage building (enclosed) is to protect your classic car from theft.  Our lean to garage building options are geared towards vehicle owner looking for an extra element of security.

Many horse and farm owners have seen the advantages a metal barn brings to them. They want a place to keep their horse that is not fully enclosed. Most of them want a semi-enclosed steel building that lets their horses to wander in and out enabling movement. Some horse owners look at our lean to barn options when they want a metal building in the fields to keep their horses in a field. During harsh weather the animals stroll inside for shelter and can be outside when it is warm and cozy. A lean-to horse barn is a cost-effective shelter for your horses and that too without spending the time, effort, and money on the elaborate stable with all options.

Let your imagination run free, because we can turn your ideas into the perfect custom metal barn.
