Metal Building Roof Styles
Metal buildings have three types of roof styles, each with its own unique advantage for your structure.
Vertical Roof Style
Perfect for heavy snowfall or rain, our vertical roof is the top-of-the-line in metal building roof styles. It is recommended for any building longer than 36’. This roof style has sheet panels that run vertically from the top to the eaves, with a ridge cap to cover the panel joints at the peak of the building. The vertical roof style is A-frame, but the panels are placed vertically, making it the best choice for areas that experience heavy snow. The vertical roof is grooved to allow dirt and precipitation to exit off the sides. With vertical panels, snow won’t over-accumulate, as it slides down easily off the roof. (Please note*: we do not provide warranty over 30’)
A-Frame Roof Style
The A-frame roof style is also referred to as a boxed-eave style; this roof style has an A-frame structure with horizontal panels that run from front to back. This A-frame roof design is good for areas that can receive some moderately bad weather, but it’s not recommended for heavy snow and wind protection. The architecture style is reminiscent of classical American design. (Please note*: we do not provide warranty over 30’)
Regular Roof Style
This is the most economical option of roof style for steel structures and is a popular choice for many residential and agricultural buildings. This roof has curved edges with sheet panels that run horizontally from front to back. In regular roof buildings, bow trim covers the bended transitions of the legs and roof bows. If you don’t see heavy snow or wind in your region, this regular roof style is a cost-effective solution for your parking or storage utilities. (Please note*: we do not provide warranty over 30’)
Metal Building Sizes
We offer steel structures or buildings of any size to fit your needs
Building width size starts at a standard width of 12’ and we can build it as wide as you need with the proper support
Any building wider than 32’ will require a lift at the installation site
Industry standard length for a building is 21’, but Carport Central can customize the length starting from 21’ and extending the length by 5’ framing increments
Carport Central can customize the height of your prefab metal building structure from 6’ up to 14’. Some manufacturers offer 20’ high side walls, so check with our team of customer service representatives to learn about the height available in your area
Any custom metal building 14’ tall must be 18’ or wider
Metal Building Colors
We offer a wide selection of metal building color options for you to choose from. You can also opt for a two-tone color scheme to help create an even better visual blend with your other surrounding buildings. You can customize the color of your roof, side panels, wainscot, and trim of your structure. See some of our metal building color options below:
Advanced Custom Metal Building Options and Elements
Additional options such as gable ends, and side panels can add strength to your structure
Garage sheds and workshop structures can be customized with standard and upgraded versions of walk-in doors, windows, and roll-up doors for larger projects
Anchors keep us grounded! Not only do anchors keep the custom metal buildings & structures in place, but we have special anchors depending on the type of base you have for your carport or custom metal building
Metal Building Gauge
The first thing to understand is the gauge system. Gauge is the measurement used to indicate standard thickness of the metal. In the gauge system, the higher the number, the thinner the steel. So, for example, 12-gauge steel is thicker and stronger than 14-gauge steel. Our 12-gauge framing is 2¼” x 2¼” in diameter and has a higher tensile strength, providing greater resistance for higher snow load and wind load capacity. We recommend 12-gauge steel for areas with heavy snow and high wind loads, as well as for carports that are 10’ or more in height, or 30’ or more in width.
Steel Framing for Metal Buildings
Pick from 12-gauge or 14- gauge steel framing to frame your new metal building
Both materials are strong and tested to withstand the elements
We offer a 20-year rust- through warranty on 12-gauge steel framing
Certification of Custom Steel Buildings
Many local rules require certification for occupied structures. We can provide the generic building prints in most cases for the inspection. Let our customer service representatives know your plan to have the building certified.

How Custom Metal Buildings Better Stand Against High Flood
Custom metal buildings have advantages over other types of construction, especially when exposed to floods. High quality metal is unaffected by flooding. Metal buildings are often found still standing after floods and are mold resistant. Metal is also resistant to corrosion because steel doesn’t break down in excessively moist environments. Since metal buildings do not contain wood, where mold thrives, mold is eliminated. When wooden buildings are exposed to flooding, they rot and all the wood has to be replaced. Since metal sheets do not absorb moisture, they do not weaken or rot. When water gets into wood, below the surface where paint has been applied, it warps and rots, which severely damages the surface. With metal, the underlayers are unharmed, and the surface layer of paint remains undisturbed. A wooden home would need to have wood replaced and repaired. However, when you choose to build a metal or steel home, you can be sure that it won’t require heavy maintenance and will last for more than 50 years. You can customize all types of metal buildings with us; Carport Central understands our customers’ metal building requirements and our experts will guide you through the process. Fill out a quick form or call to talk to our representatives at toll free number (980) 321-9898 to get your dream metal building installed at your site.
