Are you looking for a large storage space for equipment, vehicles, tools, or other substantial items? You could rent a storage locker, but they can be expensive, and you’d have to get into the car and drive to the storage facility every time you needed to retrieve something. Our prefab steel buildings are a much more convenient and cost-effective option: Buy one of our steel building kits and you’ll get the space you need with no monthly rental fees required!

Our metal garages have passed the most rigorous tests by branches of the US military for strength and durability. Our buildings are in use by many fire departments, police departments, commercial companies and municipalities. Private, commercial, and government agencies from California to Vermont, from the Appalachians to Alaska, and from Iraq to Poland have become satisfied customers of our building kits.


The certified package is available if you live in an area where you must present blueprint drawings of your steel garage to the local building department. These drawings show that the garage is rated for up to 140-mph winds and a 30-psf snow load. The certified package is available at an additional cost depending on the size. Certified metal garages are built fully braced and include mobile home anchors if they are going to be anchored to the ground.
We do not allow customers to pick up their metal buildings. However, we do drop off metal buildings at our customers’ homes. Those who make this arrangement with us must assemble their metal garage buildings themselves. We do not recommend this option to customers because we like to supervise the installation ourselves with our professional assembly team. But if you assemble your custom metal building, you’ll save 5% on the metal building installed prices that we quote you. Customers who install their own metal garage buildings are not entitled to the one-year workmanship warranty, however.

One of the most popular forms of travel used today is taking an RV cross-country! Travelling in an RV is an experience that not many people get to experience, and if you have, one that you don’t want to miss! In the 60’s and 70’s, vans were the way for a family or group of friends to travel in style and comfort; since then, RV manufacturers have built vehicles with more power, efficiency, and of course, comfort. An RV provides the comforts of home in a versatile vehicle that can be taken just about anywhere. There are plenty of parks and campgrounds across the U.S. to choose from, along with those in other countries if you’re ready for an adventure!
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.

Yes, we can make metal garages in a custom size, but we’ll charge you for the larger standard size when we do so. For example, let’s say you need a 17-foot-wide garage and the standard widths are either 12 feet or 18 feet. In this case, we’d charge you for the 18-foot model. This rule applies to length as well: If you need the length to be 24 feet and the 26-foot model is too long, we can make the base 24 feet long, but we’ll charge you for the 26-foot model. When figuring out the size you need, remember that when we say 26 feet long, that figure includes a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends, so the exact base is 25 feet long.

We can also provide a full refund of your deposit if you wish to cancel the order. However, for orders placed between Oct. 1 and spring in the District of Columbia, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, this guarantee does not apply, as installations and deliveries in these locations will most likely be delayed until spring due to the frequency of winter storms.

A fabric or vinyl tarp is better than nothing, but it’s still not an effective cover for your RV.  It’s awkward and cumbersome to put on and take off, and it still leaves your RV exposed to the elements. And have you ever tried to remove a tarp that is covered with 6 inches of snow and ice?  Not fun, and not easy.  A better place to store your RV is under a covered metal carport (RV carport) with a solid surface. Better still, keep your RV both safe and secure inside a fully-enclosed metal garage!
Metal garage doors can be placed on the end or on the gutter side like in this picture. Please keep in mind that if you order metal garage kits with the garage doors on the side, the leg height needs to be 2 feet taller than the height of the garage door; when you get the garage doors on the end, the leg height only needs to be 1 foot taller than the height of the garage doors. Also, steel garages come standard with 29-gauge metal siding going horizontal, but you have the option to upgrade to vertical sides and a vertical roof as shown in the picture.
We usually start our 3 car garages out at 20’ wide and can go up to 30’ wide or more; however, the width will depend on the style of your vehicle and if you wish to have a side-entry. By parking along the length of the building you are saving money by not exceeding 30’ in width.  Remember 32’ and beyond in width will bump you into our commercial clear-span garages.

When you order one of our metal RV covers, you get a choice of three roof styles: regular, boxed eave, and vertical. There is an advantage to choosing a vertical roof for your RV: Metal carports with this type of roof don’t experience snow buildup. Because of the roof’s vertical sheeting, the snow slides off the side before it can accumulate. The regular and boxed-eave styles have sheeting that runs horizontally across the length of the building.

Yes. We can make residential metal buildings in a custom size, but we charge the customer the price of the next larger standard size of metal buildings for sale. For example, let’s say you need a 17-foot-wide building and the standard widths are either 12 or 18 feet. We would charge you for an 18-foot-wide building in this case. This same rule applies to length. If you need the length to be 24 feet and the 26-foot-long model is too long, we can make the base 24 feet long, but it will be priced at 26 feet long. As you determine the size you want for your custom metal buildings, please remember that when we say 26 feet long, that includes a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends, so the exact base is 25 feet long.
