Why Should You Get a Storage Shed Kit?

And speaking of installing, you install it whenever you want. You don’t have to worry about waiting for an installation crew to arrive at your house or business, because you are the crew. So, you can save time by putting up your own storage shed at your own pace.

Picking the Right Roof for Your Storage Shed
The most important step in designing your new metal storage shed is deciding which roof style you want. You’ll want to consider what the weather is like in your location, your budget, and your style preferences. We offer three different roof options that are guaranteed to meet any of your requirements.
The Regular Roof
This is our most budget-friendly option. Its sloping sides resemble that of a traditional agricultural building, giving it an old-world charm that some customers can’t get enough of. The regular roof has horizontal paneling that channels rain, snow, sleet, and all other debris off the front and back ends of the structure. This type of paneling means that regular roofs are not ideal for all areas, such as those that experience frequent severe weather. However, they are perfect for anywhere with mild, temperate weather.
The A-Frame Horizontal Roof
The A-frame horizontal roof is also known as the boxed-eave roof. But no matter what it’s called, it’s truly the best of both worlds. While there are people who like the old-world charm of the regular roof, other people prefer a style that is more modern. They want their metal buildings to complement their home. The A-frame horizontal roof does just that. While it still has horizontal panels that channel debris off the front and back of the building, it is peaked like typical house roofs are. This design makes the A-frame horizontal roof style better suited for areas with moderate conditions and occasional severe weather.
The Vertical Roof
The vertical roof is the best, most popular roof option in the industry. This is because it is the most durable and reliable option we offer. Unlike the previous roof styles, it has vertical paneling that runs from the top to the bottom of the roof. Any debris or precipitation that comes in contact with it will flow straight off of the sides. It is the most weather-resistant, so it’s a reliable option for people who live in areas that experience frequent severe weather and/or heavy precipitation. You don’t have to compromise style for functionality, either! The vertical roof is peaked like the A-frame horizontal roof. Keep in mind, all structures longer than 36’ are required to have a vertical roof because of the extra sturdiness.

Do You Need a Building Permit?
Before you fully invest in a prefab metal storage shed from Carport Central, you need to make sure you have everything you need for smooth sailing. A lot of people forget that permits are a crucial part of buying any metal building.
So, what do you need to do?
- Check with your local zoning and planning commission before you finalize your order.
- They may have specific wind or snow load requirements, as well as size limitations.
- Check with your Homeowners Association.
- Not everyone has to worry about this, but some HOAs have specific guidelines for all metal buildings installed in their area. These guidelines may involve the size, style, and location of your structure.
How Much Does a Metal Storage Shed Kit Cost?
When it comes to customizing your metal storage shed kit, two questions probably come to mind: “How big can it be?” and “How much will it cost?” The answer to both is that it is up to you!
Size is one of our customizable features. The only restriction involving it would be that any building longer than 36’ must have a vertical roof. The extra braces and supports are necessary for larger structures. And vertical roofs are the premier roofing option, so not only will the larger size cause the price to go up, so will the roofing option.
As far as the final price goes, it is completely dependent on the extent of your customizations. The final size you choose, the number of windows you add, and extra customizations you include like gables and trim will also increase your metal building price. If you’re wondering just how much your storage shed kit will cost, contact the building specialists at Carport Central for an exact estimate at (980) 321-9898.
