Side Entry Garages
Regular Roof

Regular Roof

The first roof style, known as a regular roof, uses horizontal roof panels with rounded corners to keep manufacturing waste to a minimum and installation ease at a maximum. As such, it is the most efficient and affordable option. If you live in an area with consistently nice weather, this may be the roof style for you.

A-Frame Horizontal Roof

A-Frame Horizontal Roof

Building on the design of the regular roof style by adding eaves and more internal framework, A-frame horizontal roofs offer more strength and weather-resistance than their regular counterparts, making them a great option for someone looking for a little more strength and peace-of-mind.

Side Entry Garages
Vertical Roof

Vertical Roof

The crème de la crème of roof style is the vertical roof. This option replaces the horizontal roof panels of the other two designs with vertical panels that dramatically increase strength and weight-bearing capacity. In the face of harsh weather, you can rest easy with a vertical roof over your head!

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.

Unique Design of a Side-Entry Garage

If you’re scratching your head and wondering what makes a side entry garage different than any other type of metal building, that’s OK—we’re here to break down the difference for you so you can determine whether or not a side entry garage is the perfect choice for your needs!

A side entry garage is a metal building that has its garage doors placed on the side—symmetrically, of course. This means that the roll-up or walk-in doors (the options are up to you) will not be placed in the front of the metal building. Instead, you’ll have a regular door as your entrance way to the front. Obviously, side entry garages are named for their access points—and with side entry garages, those access points are placed on the longer side of the building, allowing you to fully utilize the longer span and granting you more room in the long run!

The side entry garage is designed for those who need more storage for large vehicles, equipment, and more, but don’t necessarily have room for a larger carport or garage on their property.
