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.

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.
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.
The regular-style roof is rounded on the sides with a barn-like shape. This is the most economical option for a metal building roof. The leg height on the regular garage packages is 8 feet, but at the top of the bend on the leg, it is 1 foot taller. This gives you 9-foot legs with a 9x8 garage door. The boxed-eave and vertical metal building packages come standard with 9-foot legs fully enclosed with a 9x8 garage door. The metal buildings for sale that have a boxed-eave roof have an A-frame gable roof with a 6-inch overhang on both sides. The vertical style is also built with an A-frame roof and has a 6-inch overhang on both sides. All of our steel buildings for sale have a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends. The sheeting on a vertical-style roof runs up and down, allowing the snow to slide off of the building so you won’t have to rake the roof. Also, there’s bracing attached under a vertical roof to secure the sheeting. This adds strength to the structure of a vertical garage. When you look at the boxed-eave and regular roofs, you’ll notice that the sheeting runs horizontally over the length of the roof.
