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!
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 offer standard sizes to save you time & money. They are priced 12' wide, 18' wide, 20' wide, 22' wide, & 24' wide, & in lengths they are priced 26' long, 31' long, 36'' long, & 41' long. We can build any custom size in between these sizes. Any custom size is priced the same as the next size up. I.e. a 14' 0" wide is priced the same as a 18' wide, a 34' long would be priced the same as a 36' long, etc..
This wood hardness list ranks 75 types of wood by their Janka rating. Explore our wood density chart to see which hardwood is the best for your next project! The Janka hardness scale measures the force that’s required to embed a steel ball halfway through a sample of wood. The ball is 0.444 inches in diameter and fired with increasing force. The pounds of force (or newtons if you’re using the metric system) needed to push the ball to the center is the Janka value you end up with. It’s a great way to measure how resistant a piece of wood is to denting and wear. Our Janka wood hardness chart shows how durable certain wood types are.
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.
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.
There are three roof styles we have for customers to choose from; regular, boxed-eave, and vertical. The regular roof style garage is A-shaped and has curved ends, its sheeting running lengthwise. The boxed-eave roof garage has sheeting that also runs lengthwise, but its V-shape is flat all the way down. The vertical roof garage is shaped the same way as the boxed-eave, but as the name implies, its sheeting runs vertically.
We do not allow you to pick up steel garages from our warehouse. However, we do offer the option of having steel garage buildings dropped off at your home so you can assemble them. We prefer to deliver and set up our garage structures, but if you’d like to assemble yours yourself, you can. Although you will save 5% on the purchase price when you assemble your own metal garage, installing the garage yourself does void our one-year workmanship warranty.
“Timing was an extremely important factor for us and we knew no one in America could get a steel building on site quicker than Armstrong Steel - so the choice was easy. With all of the unscrupulous steel building companies out there today, we're glad we chose Armstrong Steel because we got what we paid for and THEN some AND they came through in a pinch!”
