Metal Garage Most Asked Questions and Answers
Q: The first question asked is if the price comes with delivery and installation?
Yes our buildings come with free delivery and installation. The only exception is if it is a large commercial style building that requires it to be hauled on an eighteen wheeler otherwise we deliver all our buildings for no charge. The installation charge is always included in the quoted price.
Q: Can I customize my metal building if I don’t see the size and type I want?
Yes are buildings are completely made according to your order and we have 1000 options in size, styles, and you can customize colors, roof types, trim, walls, anchoring types, doors sizes, openings, custom doors of your own, and more. You may even supply your own custom doors our windows and we will frame out the openings to fit your materials. Installation crews will frame out garage doors, walk in doors and windows to fit. Make sure you order your building the correct size to accommodate your door size. For example if you special order a 12 foot tall garage door to install on the end of the building then your building will need to be at least 12 to 13 feet tall depending on the width of the building. Your customer service agent will help you with the proper sizes.
Q: What is the difference between a metal garage made with 14 gauge material and one made with 12 gauge material?
14 gauge refers to the structural metal thickness. The thicker the metal is the lower the number of the gauge. Both gauge sizes are good but the 12 gauge is thicker and more resilient than the 14 gauge. The 12 gauge is 1/4 thicker with a demension of 2 1/4″ by 21/4″ inches thick and the 14 gauge size is 2 1/2″ by 2 1/2″.
Q: Is there an extra charge for colors?
All our colors are free of charge and you can choose a roof, trim, and wall color that are all different. Also our horizontal wainscoting buildings are often free of charge on colors unless they are larger sizes or in certain areas there may be a charge.
Q: Can I purchase my metal garage as a kit and install it myself?
We prefabricate our buildings at the plant so they do install quickly and you may do so. The discount is 5% off the price. We will deliver the kit to your home for installation.
Q: Can I add to my building after it has been installed?
Yes, you may add to the building after it is installed. Make sure you understand all the cost before you plan to do so. Some have chosen to build the roof structure first and then later enclose remainder of the building. Often it is less expensive to purchase everything for your building upfront than build later. One reason is because of the rise in prices in the metal market. Also there may be an additional charge to return to the job.
Q: What are the different roof styles of metal garages?
The different roof styles are pictured below you may click on the pictures and enlarge them.
A. Horizontal style Garage seen below: Horizontal (regular Garage) the steel panels in a horizontal roof run parallel to the side of the building, and the ridges on a vertical roof run vertically (or straight down towards the ground (meaning they intersect with the side of the carport (side wall or frame).
B. Boxed Eve Garage is an A Frame Building with a Horizontal Roof.
C. Vertical Roof Garage roof panels run from the center ridge cap to the sides of the building. The vertical Roof Carport System: there is a ridge cap installed at the center of the roof and the panels run down to the sides. Metal panels on a vertical garage are also shorter as each panel is half the size of the width of the roof line. Adding steel channel making for an overall stronger system. This is our best system. A Vertical System displaces debri, snow, and water much more quickly and efficently than a horizontal roof garage. The water will also drain away from the door openings unless the placement of the doors are on the sides of the building.
