ALABAMA AND METAL BUILDINGS

Alabama is full of culture and geographic diversity, with a varied climate and many blossoming industries. These industries include:

Poultry and Eggs
Poultry and Eggs

Chicken is undoubtedly one of America’s favorite foods. And with it being in such high demand, the poultry industry has transitioned to become one of Alabama’s major exports. While the poultry and egg industry at large only makes up a small portion of Alabama’s total GDP, its role in Alabama’s economy is still quite significant.

Like many farms across the state, the poultry industry often uses metal buildings for its facilities. Chickens are often raised in long, wide houses that need to be constructed with enough room to accommodate them. And metal buildings from American Metal Buildings are ideal structures for these tasks due to their strength and size capabilities.

Minerals
Minerals

Alabama is known for its growing commodities, including minerals like quartz, limestone, iron ore, and even salt. These products have a wide demand and are used for various purposes, making them a valuable export for the state.

Beverages
Beverages

While many people think of the Carolinas when they think of sodas and soft drinks, Alabama would like a word. This state has a large assortment of beverage production facilities, including many producing the nation’s sweet tea and lemonade stock.

Automotive Exports
Automotive Exports

Move over, folks! The automotive industry is the highest-grossing activity in the state. It is also home to several world-famous companies like Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, Honda, Toyota, and Mazda, to name a few. Due to their size and cost-effective designs, these industries heavily rely on metal buildings as their go-to construction solution.

Each of these industries dramatically benefits from the use of steel buildings. They’re fully customizable, inexpensive to construct, and offer the sheer size and maintenance-free design these large fields require. But beyond those capabilities, they’re also resistant to water, rust, and even fires up to 1200 degrees. Try finding a stick-built building that can do that!

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CHOOSE THE
ALABAMA METAL BUILDINGS
that you need to install and contact us to get started!

The Biotechnology Capital

Perhaps the industry that’s propelling Alabama forward is the biotechnology industry. Medical biotech is a critical facet of our modern world, and Alabama intends to take center stage. Some of Alabama’s top researchers have developed invaluable cancer treatment medications as well as great strides in our understanding of Polio and AIDS.

And like many of the industries above, biotech has a strong history with metal buildings. These custom structures are perfectly suited for medical research facilities due to their low maintenance, affordability, and resiliency.

Alabama, the Weather, and Metal Buildings

Alabama’s weather is mild when compared to some areas of the country. But this doesn’t mean the state doesn’t see its fair share of violent storms! It never hurts to protect your investments with the power of steel. Wooden buildings are susceptible to mold, mildew, and general decay that can do thousands of dollars in damage under your very eye. But not with steel buildings! Steel is naturally resistant to moisture, rust, and mold, making it the perfect building material for almost any application.

And precipitation isn’t the only type of weather that can cause damage! Significant swings in temperature can cause wooden materials to bow, crack and shift. But steel will remain sturdy regardless of the ambient temperatures. Wind? That’s an easy solution too. Metal buildings are designed to withstand heavy winds, rain, snow, and even seismic activities throughout most states in the US!

No matter what industry you’re in, and no matter what your needs may be, steel structures by American Metal Buildings will serve you well for years to come. We offer a 20-year no-rust through framing, a ten-year warranty against chipping or peeling paint, and a 60-day workmanship warranty covering installation. You can trust American Metal Buildings to provide you with fantastic products that will last for a lifetime.

Creating a Fully Customizable Building in Alabama

With prefab metal buildings, you won’t believe the level of customization options at your fingertips. Adjust, add, or remove just about any aspect of these buildings to suit your needs. To show you just how customizable these buildings can be, we've put together just a few of the options:

Size

Prefab metal buildings come in many different sizes, depending on your needs. For example, they can range from small equipment sheds to enormous industrial warehouses, giving you the ability to choose exactly how big you need your structure to be.

Size

Doors and Windows

With a virtually endless variety of options to choose from, these buildings can be adapted to your imagination. Add as many different windows and door types as you need. If you want to install your own window systems, we can even have the paneling framed out for you! Have bigger things in mind? Install large garage doors to accommodate larger recreational vehicles and motorhomes.

Doors and Windows

Certifications

We can’t speak about reinforcements and wind ratings without mentioning certification. Certification is the process where your building’s design is inspected to ensure that it can withstand the elements of that particular region. For this reason, each state has its own standards of certification, and we create buildings that provide the right certifications for your area.

Roof Styles

One of the most important aspects of your building is the roof style. There are several options available to you, ranging from regular roofs with rounded edges to vertical roof systems with more traditional awnings. These roof systems are all engineered to handle different types of weather. You will want to choose the roofing style that best fits your budget and the region where you live.

Roof Styles

Steel Framing

Depending on the size of your building and the reinforcements it may need to withstand wind and snow, you have a choice between 14 and 12 gauge steel. 14 gauge is the standard option and is perfectly capable of standing up to rough weather. But if you live in an area that frequently sees torrential winds, snowstorms, and seismic activity, you may want to opt for the thicker steel.

Steel Framing

Roof Paneling

Much like our framing, the gauge of your roof panels will dictate how resilient they will be against the elements. Areas of the US that experiences heavy snowfall or wind speeds will probably need reinforced steel to meet the challenge.

Roof Paneling

Wainscoting

Contrast your build with different colored wainscoting to add interest and appeal.

Wainscoting

Colors

Color is everything! With our custom metal buildings, you have a wide range of color options available to you. Easily add a splash of color to your panels, roofing, trim, and even wainscoting to give your new building that extra flair! And having your building stand out in the crowd is only a part of the fun! By choosing the right color scheme, you can even boost its heating efficiency. White or lighter-toned buildings will stay cooler in hotter climates, while darker structures will conserve heat, making them great for colder regions.

The Types of Anchors for Your Alabama Metal Building

The understated hero of the metal building game is the anchors. These pieces of hardware keep your building attached to the ground give your building stability and strength against violent weather. But not all anchor types are the same! To better explain the differences between anchor types, we've put together a few examples:

Rebar Anchors

Rebar anchors are designed to help secure metal buildings to the ground in areas with low winds and sturdy soil. These anchors provide significant stability, but if you live in a region with heavy wind and storms, you’ll need a more heavy-duty option.

Mobile Home Anchors

The sturdier cousin to the rebar anchor system, mobile home anchors, also known as auger anchors, are traditionally used to attach larger mobile homes to the ground. The auger-like style twists into the soil and keeps it firmly connected to the ground. For buildings with soil-based foundations, mobile home anchors are required for full wind certifications.

Concrete Anchors

If you've decided to go with a concrete foundation, concrete anchors are the hardware of choice. With this system, holes are drilled into your concrete pad, and special anchors 'bolt' your structure to the foundation. These anchors come in different sizes, depending on the depth of your concrete foundation.

Asphalt Anchors

Asphalt anchor systems use specialized barbed anchors to adhere your building to the ground. Asphalt anchors are a secure option for asphalt foundations, but if strength and stability are your primary concern, you'll probably want to opt for a concrete foundation.

Different Roof Styles for AL Metal Building

No matter what region of the US you call home, American Metal Buildings is dedicated to providing you with premium metal buildings that are designed to not only withstand the elements but to do it for decades. And part of what makes these buildings so resilient is their roofing systems. Below, we'll talk a little more about the different types and what works best for you.

Regular Roof Style

Regular Roof Style

A regular roof system is a popular choice for many buildings and is the most affordable option. This system can easily be identified by the rounded edges that give it that classic ‘carport’ look. This roof system is a durable choice but may not hold up as well as boxed-eave or vertical roof systems. Unlike vertical roofs, this style is susceptible to debris and leaf collection, which, over time, can cause moisture and rust damage.

Horizontal Roof Style

Horizontal Roof Style

A horizontal or boxed-eave metal roof is noted by its horizontally-placed panels, traditional crests, and awnings you'd find in other house-like structures. Boxed-eave-style roofs require more precise cutting methods, making it a more expensive option than regular roofs. Regardless of the style you choose, both horizontal and vertical roof styles are strong enough to meet certification standards.

Vertical Roof Style

Vertical Roof Style

The vertical roof style is our premium option and can be easily identified by their vertically oriented roofing panels. These vertical panels allow water, snow, and debris to easily slide from the roof, reducing the chances of damage during storms. Additionally, this roofing system is one of the most resilient in terms of structural integrity.

Selecting the right roof is essential. Talk to one of our American Metal Buildings specialist if you’re not sure which roof best suits your needs.

Metal Building Certification: What is it? Why is it Important?

If you’ve read this far, you’ve probably seen the term certification mentioned once or twice. Certification is a benchmarking system where a building’s structural integrity is tested to determine its wind, snow, and seismic loads. The certification system ensures that:

  • Your anchors are appropriate for your foundation type.
  • There are braces on every leg of the structure.
  • Overall, your structure is strong enough to weather your region’s weather.

Important Things to Know About Framing Gauges

What’s the difference between 14 and 12 gauge steel framing? While it may not seem like much, having a little extra thickness in your metal building’s structure means a lot in terms of strength and stability.

  • The gauge of your frame is a measurement used to determine its thickness. As with all gauge systems, the lower the gauge, the thicker the material. Therefore, 12 gauge steel is thicker than its 14 gauge counterparts.
  • It’s not uncommon for potential buyers to be unfamiliar with our gauging system. And that’s okay!
  • The most economical framing option is 14 gauge steel. This gauge measures roughly .0747 inches thick, while 12 gauge steel comes in at 0.1046 inches. 12 gauge steel is often recommended for structures located in regions that experience heavy winds and snows.
  • Steel gauging does affect metal building prices.
  • Both gauge options are structurally sound and qualify for certification in most areas.
  • Steel framing is superior to wooden frame structures due to its durability, longevity, and pest resistance. Additionally, steel framing is more customizable than wooden alternatives.
