What Size Barn Do You Need?
One of the first things you need to decide when choosing a metal barn is how you plan to use your building. You’ll want to consider how much space you’ll need to be able to accommodate your animals and supplies, or anything else you’d like to keep under cover. It’s also wise to allow for extra space to include future additions. Prefab metal barns are available at Metal Garage Central in any custom size to fit your needs. We can build any size metal barn or facility, from a small horse barn to a building large enough to store a combine harvester! Not sure what size barn you need? Not a problem! Just reach out to one of our friendly and knowledgeable building specialists, we’ll be happy to listen to how you want to use your building, and then we can suggest some design options that will be sure to meet your needs AND your budget!
Metal Barn Roof Options
The roof style you choose for your custom steel barn makes a big difference in its functionality, and roof style also has a significant impact on the final price tag. It’s important to consider the typical weather in your area when choosing a roof for your metal barn.
- If you live in an area that experiences heavy rain or snowfall, it is recommended that you go with a vertical roof style barn.
- The boxed eave roof style has a peak like the vertical style, except the panels are installed horizontally. For this reason, we recommend purchasing a boxed eave roof style barn if you live in an area that doesn't experience a lot of snow or heavy rainfall.
- The regular roof style is the most economical choice. However, because installation of a regular roof involves the roof panels being horizontal, it’s only recommended that you purchase this style if you live in an area that has very little snowfall or heavy rain.
Metal Barn Prices
At Metal Garage Central, our prices are among the most competitive in the engineered steel structures industry. Pre-engineered metal barn prices will vary based on the extent of customization involved (roof style and dimensions), any additional materials desired (siding, gables, doors, windows, etc.), the gauge of frame (standard 14-GA or sturdier 12-GA), the gauge of sheet metal (standard 29-GA or sturdier 26-GA), and the certification or building permit requirements of your region. The state in which you install your new custom metal barn will also affect pricing. If you’re looking for accurate, up-to-date metal barn prices, look no further than Metal Garage Central!

Advantages of Prefab Steel Structures
Steel structures are superior to stick-builds or those made from other materials for reasons beyond the initial 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!
