Gauge is a standard measuring unit which defines the thickness of a metal sheet or steel sheet. Every carport or metal structure company uses it as a standard term to define the quality of the metal sheets. We have frames available in either 12-gauge or 14-gauge galvanized steel.

We have four different types of anchors. They are:

  • Auger Anchors or Mobile Home Anchors
  • Concrete Anchors
  • Rebar Anchors*
  • Asphalt Anchors

Our manufacturers offer a wide variety of strength components to ensure you have the strongest structure available. All of our steel structures include the required anchors, whether Mobile Home Anchors, Asphalt Anchors , or Standard Concrete Wedge Anchors. We also make sure there are braces on every leg for added stability against wind.

Certified metal buildings are specially designed by professional engineers that can withstand certain weather conditions like snow loads, heavy rain, hail or wind. Local/regional authorities for safety purposes define building standards, and all buildings need to pass these measures to get installed. You should be aware of your area’s requirements and purchase a structure that meets the wind and snow load requirements for your area.

A permit is official permission before installing a metal building in your area, which is provided by the authorizing legislation of your county. It is important to check before you install any building on your property. Please check with your nearest legislation if your county needs to give you a permit. Majority of areas do not require building permits, but it is in the benefit of customers to purchase a certified building for long term performance.

Our product size is mentioned in this format, Width x Length x Height. If you see a product title as 12' x 21' x 9' regular roof carport, this means the building is 12 feet wide, 21 feet long, and with 9 feet side height. Further roof styles and the main product category are added to the title.

Yes, it is advisable to measure the size of your area before placing the order as you will need enough space to accommodate your metal structure, plus it will help us to understand your requirements. Order without measurement may result in a bigger or a smaller carport/building for your place.

Remove anything out of the way that would delay the progress of the installation.

For proper building installation, your site should be level.

Most small size buildings can be installed in a few hours. Larger structures may take a half of a day or the better part of a day to be installed. Most of the metal garages take one day to install. The larger sizes of metal garages may take up to 2 days to install.

The time interval of placing an order and product delivery & installation is called lead times. The most common factors affecting the lead times are Building Design, Industry Demands, Fabrication Process, Shipping Operations, and Erection Aspects.

Firstly, installation time depends on the building design and size, and you can’t do anything about it. However, you can save substantial time by completing the site preparation, and permit work before time to ensure seamless erection. Furthermore, choose the light weather months for installation to avoid any halts due to adverse weather.
