This metal hardness chart organizes different types of metal using the Mohs hardness scale, a metric used by scientists to determine the scratch resistance of different minerals. With diamond at the top of the scale at a score of 10, elements and alloys can fall along the metal hardness scale from 10 (the most scratch-resistant) to 1 (the softest). We’ve arranged common metals in order of hardness in our handy chart and in this list. Our list includes different kinds of metal from metallic elements like silver to common alloys like steel.

All of our cheap steel buildings include free delivery for greater savings, and we’ll also build the structure on your property for free. Your new building will require a level surface for its foundation, though: A level gravel base or a concrete pad is recommended for all buildings we sell at Alan’s Factory Outlet. Placing your modular structure on this type of foundation gives it an extra element of sturdiness. Our prefabricated metal buildings for sale can fit a large number of existing foundations, and if you have any questions about whether your existing site will work for a new metal building, just give us a call and we’ll help you figure out the details.

If you have an RV or are considering purchasing one, Carport Central can help you keep it in top shape by building a custom metal RV carport for you. Investments such as RVs need to be protected from the elements, and our high-quality steel RV carports can do just that! Not only are our structures durable but are also fully customizable. On all our custom RV carports we offer 12-gauge and 14-gauge steel, a variety of roof and side styles, and a wide range of colors. We realize RV’s aren’t “one size fits all,” so whatever specifications you may have, we can build your carport to suit them all. We have steel RV sheds for sale with available storage, so you can keep your valuables and camping utilities in a safe environment along with your motor vehicle. And with our one-year workmanship warranty on any carport, you can trust that your RV cover will be engineered with high-quality materials and the finest professional craftsmanship.
Carport Central is committed to offering you the best prices for metal buildings in the country. Our prices reflect the best prices for metal buildings. Best seldom means lowest prices on metal buildings. Why? Because the quality of your building and lead times in your area are very important. We carefully select carport manufacturers across the country who can provide best steel buildings, excellent customer service, and shortest lead times. We rate our partner manufacturers on multiple parameters. The cheapest carport company may not be the best fit for your needs. However, if you want us to offer you the lowest prices, please send us your identical carport or building quote. Carport Central promises to match your identical carport/building price for the same style roof, same dimensions, same certification, same door & window sizes, and the same gauge material.
A motorhome carport can be turned into a garage easily by just adding walls and doors to the structure. Many of our customers who purchase an RV cover online prefer adding side panels to cover one side of the carport for protection from harsh elements. While an awning from the sides doesn’t fully enclose the carport like a metal garage, it does provide the space needed for maneuvering your RV.
Carport Central is the largest online carport dealer, installing around one hundred metal buildings each week, out of those around 70 being enclosed garages. While we don't pull permits, we will help you out by pulling one with our engineered drawings. We also provide an online, 3D garage designer where you can build your own garage and price it according to your budget. You can even order your garage online!

The Bungalow is a classically styled building with a gable roof format. This building has a lap-sided aluminum exterior with a baked on enamel finish which is durable and has minimal maintenance. What that means for you is that the building will withstand the test of time and still look as good as it does when it rolls off the factory line. You can even opt for a stylish Floridian Eave.
