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.

A garage can be used as protection from theft, infestations, or harsh weather at a price that won’t break the bank. However, garages aren’t just for peace of mind about your home security; they can have many different uses. For example, our custom metal garage buildings can be used as nice and cozy guesthouses when relatives visit or maybe a cabana for your poolside needs! A garage can also be turned into a man-cave, she-shed, or just a small space to get away from life’s hustle and bustle. We’d love to hear your ideas on how we can build and customize a garage that will fit all your needs, you can contact us at (844) 860-4950 to get started!

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..
Regular roof RV covers are strong and robust. They have the roof panels lined up horizontally running through the length of the building. The A-frame RV carports are stronger and have a more traditional boxed eave. The Vertical style RV carports are the strongest and have the panels running from top to down on the carport letting the snow, dirt, and debris fall off to the ground. The Vertical style RV covers have a 20-year rust through warranty on the roof panels while the horizontal roofs on boxed eave and the regular style motorhome carports only have the warranty for buildings 36 feet long or less.

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.
The basic design for each RV shelter is the same — a long, covered structure for easy parking — but our structures can accommodate the huge variety of vehicles on the market. Choose from metal RV carports as long as 61’ and as wide as 40’ for extra large RVs, or even 21’ and 26’ RV carports and covers for motorhomes or trailers. You can order the sides of your RV shelter to be along the top or bottom or even fully enclosed for complete protection against the elements.
