12-GA Metal Buildings
What’s the difference between 14-gauge and 12-gauge steel framing? The answer to that question is very simple: strength and value. Stronger steel framing means your metal building will not only be more weather-resistant but will add more property value to your home or land.Our Prefab Metal Buildings include – Metal Carports, Steel Garages, Steel Barns, RV Ports, Utility Carports, Outdoor Storage buildings, and Boat Ports.
Prefabricated Metal Building Prices
Our Prefab Metal Buildings prices are among the most competitive in the steel structures industry. Our steel carports start just at $1100 for the standard (12’x21’x6’) 14-gauge with no certifications added.
Pre-engineered metal building prices at Carport Central can vary, depending on the extent of customization involved (roof style and dimensions), the additional materials desired (wall panels, gables, doors, windows, anchors), the gauge of frame (12-GA or 14-GA), the gauge of sheet metal (29-GA or 26-GA), and the certification or building permit requirements of your region.
Metal Buildings Roof Styles
If you’re familiar with roofing in general, then you already know that a metal roof is one of the best material solutions when it comes to protecting your structure. Metal buildings typically come in one of three roof styles: regular, A-frame, or vertical:
1. Regular Roof Style
The Regular roof style is a popular choice for many residential, farm, and agricultural applications. People often like the rounded, curvy look of the roof, and many associate this roof style with more of a traditional barn-like look. The sheet paneling runs horizontally from front to back, and the bended transitions of the legs and roof bows are covered by bow trim. And another reason folks like Regular roofs? Regular roofs are typically the most economical metal building roof style. A Regular roof provides reliable protection in non-extreme weather conditions, and is a good shield from both sun and rain. A regular roof is a viable option if your building is less than 30’ in width, and if you live in an area which doesn’t tend to get much in the way of snow or higher winds.
2. A-Frame Roof Style
The A-Frame style is more similar to the design of a typical house roof. This option is attractive if you want to step away from the curved look of a regular roof, and help your metal building better blend in with your home or other nearby structures. These metal roofs are also commonly known as Boxed-Eave roofs. This name refers to the fact that the roof panels don’t curve around like with a Regular roof, but rather stop at the roof’s edge, much like what you’d see with most home roofs. A-Frame roof paneling is similar to that of a Regular roof; the roof panels run horizontally from front to back. Generally speaking, an A-frame is a stronger frame design than that of a Regular roof. This roof style is good for areas that can receive some bad weather, but it’s not recommended in areas where heavy snow or wind protection are needed.
3. Vertical Roof Style
Vertical style roofs are really the top-of-the-line option for metal buildings of all sizes, types, and designs. Like the Boxed-Eave roof, a Vertical roof is built on an A-frame, so it also carries a look that’s more reminiscent of a home roof. But Vertical roofs are stronger and more resilient than A-Frame roofs, as they come with additional reinforcements. For example, Vertical roofs include hat channels and ridge caps to improve stability. The other thing which really sets Vertical roofs apart is the vertical orientation of the roof paneling. The panels run down vertically from the top down to the eaves of the roof. This panel orientation means that rain, snow, and debris all glide off the roof much more easily than with horizontal paneling. Vertical roofs are easily the most resilient and durable of the three roof styles, and a Vertical roof is the only recommended option for buildings 30’ wide and above.
Metal Building Sizes
Prefabricated Metal Buildings by Carport Central are available in any custom size to fit your needs. We build all sizes from small storage buildings for your garden tools up to a large commercial unit for your manufacturing plant. Check out our metal building sizes as mentioned below.
Wider Metal Buildings
Our prefabricated metal buildings run from 12’ to 70’ wide. There are different standard sizes available based on intended building usage, such as –
42’ – 70’ wide – Large industrial metal buildings for manufacturing workshops, industrial plants, service centers, etc.
32’ – 40’ wide – Commercial metal buildings to store raw materials or to park big machinery, equipment, etc.
26’ – 30’ wide – Also known as triple-wide buildings, which are mostly used as farming storage
12’ – 24’ wide – Residential style buildings, also known as standard buildings. These standard buildings are used for general storage, and can house cars, trucks, RVs, boats, jet skis, ATVs, etc.
As a rule, the bigger the building, the more reinforcement it needs to stand strong, so it can protect your items. Our buildings always come with the necessary anchors, braces, trims, reinforced legs based on the height (double legs/ladder legs), base rails, truss systems, bows, header bars, hat channels, etc.
Longer Metal Buildings
Our standard metal buildings typically run from 21’ to 51’ in length, but we can build 100’ or longer buildings per your specifications. We can customize any style or model to fit the length you need!
Taller Metal Buildings
Standard height of our metal buildings starts at 6’ for basic outdoor storage sheds, all the way up to 20’ tall.
- 6’ – 11’ leg height comes with single posts
- 12’ – 14’ leg height comes standard with single posts, with an option for double posts
- 15’ – 20’ leg height always comes with ladder-leg posts
Double legs and ladder legs are the strongest leg post styles and are recommended for wider and taller metal buildings. These leg post styles increase strength and durability and enable our metal buildings to better fight harsh weather elements.
Certified Metal Buildings and Non-Certified Buildings
What’s the difference between a certified and non-certified metal building? If your local ordinances require you to have a permit to install a building, then you need a certified building. If your area has no such requirements, then you have the option of choosing between certified and non-certified. Certified metal buildings are designed and engineered to withstand specific weather conditions like snow loads or heavy wind. Non-certified metal buildings don’t have any specific snow or wind ratings.
Certified metal buildings offer additional strength and stability with higher-quality steel material, an upgraded gauge for structure and sheet framing, and stronger anchors, braces, truss systems, leg posts, and base rails.
You can opt for the 12-gauge upgrade option with any of these certification codes. All the building codes and certifications vary based on the state of installation and the building permit requirements.
