Roof Only Metal Buildings
The beauty of a steel structure is its versatility and adaptability. If you need an open-air roofed structure with open accessibility on any side, we can do that at Metal Garage Central. If you need an enclosed structure with more protection and security, we can do that too!
Sometimes people get confused by the phrase “roof-only building.” Some assume that a building must be enclosed by definition. However, this is not the case. A building is literally anything that is built or constructed, and roof-only buildings fall into that category. What is a roof-only building? It’s an open-air structure with poles and a roof only. A traditional carport design is a classic example of a roof-only structure. However, you aren’t limited to a traditional carport design when you choose a roof-only metal building from Metal Garage Central!
Roof-Only Steel Building Options
At Metal Garage Central, we’ve seen our customers use roof-only metal structures to cover almost anything you can think of. Our roof-only buildings have been used as shelters for cars, trucks, boats, RV covers, equipment storage, hay barns, stables, riding arenas, community buildings, picnic shelters, pavilions, and more. Just tell us what you want to cover, and we can work with you to design a roof-only pole barn or building to cover it!
Benefits of Roof-Only Buildings
Why choose a roof-only structure? For one thing, open-air buildings allow for unobstructed entry from all sides, which comes in handy when you have a lot of equipment to move in and out, and need open access to be able to do it. Open-air structures are also perfect for hosting outdoor gatherings or parties, and they make for much easier clean-up afterwards. Another advantage of a roof-only building is its flexibility. Roof-only buildings can be installed as stand-alone structures, or they can be designed as attachments to an existing structure. These metal carports and covers are very easy to expand as your needs grow, and they’re also easy to convert to an enclosed structure if you so decide in the future. Whatever you need from a roof-only cover, Metal Garage Central can help you design and install the perfect solution!
Size Options for Roof-Only Buildings
What size roof-only metal building is best for your storage needs? That depends on what you want to store under cover, how tall the items to be covered are, and how many square feet of space you have available for your building site. As a general guideline, a 12’-wide roof-only building can fit a single car, a 22’-wide can fit two full-size cars, and a 26’-wide can accommodate three midsize cars.
How long should your building be? Standard length plans start at 21’, but if you want to store items in addition to (or other than) vehicles, you can always add more length to your custom building design in 5’ increments. How tall should your building be? It just depends on what you want to cover, and how much clearance is required. Metal Garage Central roof-only buildings start at a standard height of 6’, but can be customized to whatever height you need!
Advantages of Custom Steel Structures
Steel structures are superior to stick-builds or those made from other materials for reasons beyond the competitive purchase price, too:
Metal is easier to clean and requires less maintenance than stick-builds or other structures. And since the color is infused into the metal, you don’t have the same peeling or fading paint issues, either.
Steel buildings don’t rot like wood and can stand up to constant use and extreme weather, including high winds, heavy rains, accumulating snow, lightning … and even earthquakes! The metal paneling can also be coated with aluminum compounds to help further prevent rusting and prolong the life of the panels.
Pest and Fire Resistant –
Steel isn’t susceptible to termites or other pests, and doesn’t harbor mold or mildew. Steel is also incredibly fire resistant.
The versatility of steel allows for more complex architectural designs and more clear-span interior space. It’s easier to expand metal buildings as your space needs grow, too.
Less Expensive to Insure –
Thanks to superior strength, durability, and fire resistance, your insurance costs may decrease if you choose a steel building over other options. That’s another cost benefit you get by choosing a structure from Metal Garage Central!
