Have you ever wondered where metal comes from, how humans figured out how to make brass, or why rose gold is just a slightly different hue? We’ve created a comprehensive chart of metals and their alloys: A list of common metal alloys like this can help us answer many questions we have about our metal tools, our everyday lives, and our universe!

ABSOLUTE STEEL RV covers and shade ports are available in widths up to 40′ wide; standard lengths start at 20′ and increase in 4’or 5′ increments until you run out of land. Our carports are offered in standard heights starting at an eave height of 7.5′ and can be increased in 1′ increments up to a 15.5′ eave height.

Working with General Steel is a collaborative process that ensures that your final product reflects your specific needs. The process starts with a two-way conversation between you and our experienced team. We want to know exactly how you will be using your garage, how it will fit on your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the garage to ensure that it’s equipped to withstand the wind and snow loads of your area as well as any insulation requirements.

Look at the top of a regular-roof garage and you’ll see a barn-shaped roof with rounded sides. It is the most economical type of metal garage. The leg height on regular garage packages is 8 feet, but at the top of the bend on the leg, you have an additional foot, giving you 9-foot legs with a 9-by-8 garage door. The boxed-eave and vertical-roof metal garage packages come standard with 9-foot legs fully enclosed with a 9-by-8 garage door. The boxed-eave style has 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 the steel structures have a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends. There is one main difference between the vertical- and the boxed-eave-style roofs. On the vertical-style, the roof sheeting runs up and down, allowing snow to slide off the side of the garage structure. On the boxed-eave as well as the regular roof style, the metal sheeting runs lengthwise. Also, the bracing on the vertical sheeting is attached under the roof, which brings an extra element of strength to a vertical-roof garage.
On the Boxed Eave Style Metal RV Cover, (A-Frame Type), the RV Cover comes with the Standard Horizontal Roof. The Roof Panels run parallel to the side of the Structure. Water will drain to the front or the back of the Structure. On this style you have the option of having the roof panels installed vertically for an additional charge. We recommend the Vertical Roof Style for the small difference in price versus the Horizontal Roof Style.
You can also choose from three different roof styles for our steel-frame buildings. Most regular prefab steel barns have a barn-style roof, whereas boxed-eave buildings have an A-frame roof. Other structures have an A-frame roof with vertical paneling that allows the snow to slide off. Vertical paneling is a great option for steel garage buildings if you live in an area that gets a high amount of snowfall.

We have three options available for your RV cover, including our most popular option, the regular roof cover. This roof cover is ideal for areas where temperate climates and mild weather is the norm. For snowier or more wintry sections of the country, we recommend our other two types of roofs, since they are engineered to withstand more extreme conditions. The boxed eave roof has an A-frame design shelters and is made with stronger material that withstands more brutal weather than the regular roof type shelters. Our vertical roof shelters for our RVs has a vertical design that allows snow to dissipate quickly, which is recommended in areas where harsh weather is common. Work with us to determine which roof type best suits your needs.
