Metal Storage Buildings
Steel storage buildings are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. due to their practicality. They are extremely versatile and offer an economical way of adding storage space as well as value to any property. It is so amazing how they can serve almost every purpose, from standard residential uses to demanding commercial functions!
These buildings come in various sizes, three different roof types, and unique designs. For example, they could be fully enclosed on all sides with a roll-up or walk-in door for access. Also, you can have the sidewalls or end walls open or partially covered. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Beyond Storage: A ton of Applications for Your Metal Storage Building
Steel storage structures outperform traditional buildings in many ways. They can handle anything that conventional buildings do, plus much more. And they come at lower costs, last longer, and customize easy. Let your imagination run loose, and you’ll find an endless list of possibilities. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
all that clutter in your living area and the things you don’t use often could go here. You can also shelter your gardening tools and equipment, such as lawnmowers.
Need a secure place for your kids to play at home? Paint the interior with attractive bright colors, maybe add a soft floor, and you have the perfect playroom for your children.
maybe your house doesn’t have a garage or yours is too cramped. Whatever the reason, prefab storage buildings make for great garage spaces. You can shelter, repair, and service your car in there. And the space is easily shareable with other storage needs.
anything you want to grow indoors goes. Prefab metal storage buildings allow for easy plumbing, electrical wiring, and partitioning for various grow house needs.
Barns and animal sheds
got any agricultural storage needs? You’ll be glad to know that these buildings can handle it all, from the storage of feeds to animal shelters – like chicken coops, dog houses, rabbit hutches, and so on.
both you and your grown-up kids will love having an entertainment area outside the main house – if you fancy that sort of thing. Put up a giant screen, quality speakers, and comfortable seats, and you got yourself a movie room. You could also do foosball, ping pong, or any other indoor game.
maybe you don’t feel like going to the public gym anymore, or you need a private one at home – one that’s within arm’s reach. How can a metal storage building say no to that? All you need is a rubber floor, windows for some natural light, ventilation or air conditioning, maybe a few mirrors, and some posters. But don’t forget the fitness equipment or you’ll be doing push-ups only.
Picking the right roof design is vital to the kind of protection your belongings get as well as the appearance of your building and how it blends with the surrounding structures. We’ve got three unique roof styles for you:
The most basic and affordable roof type is the regular one. It is easy to identify with ridges that run horizontal and panels that curve onto the legs on the sides. This roof style is the most material- and cost-efficient but not the best at handling heavy precipitation and winds. Under moderate weather conditions, however, it holds up pretty well.
A-Frame Horizontal Roof
Also known as boxed-eave, this is where the regular and vertical roofs meet. It features the standard A-frame design, but the roofing panels are horizontal. It does not require extra hat channel pieces, thereby cutting on costs, while giving the appearance of traditional buildings. However, just like the regular roof design, it is not the best at displacing snow, rain, and leaves.
With ridges that run from top-down, this is the perfect roof where you expect heavy precipitation. It also has extra hat channels, which add to the overall sturdiness of the structure. And, its A-frame design enables it to blend with the surrounding buildings like a chameleon! When you are looking for robustness, efficiency, and durability, this roof is a perfect fit.
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.
Multiple Customization Options for Your Metal Storage Building
American Metal Buildings is keen on providing exactly what customers want. Therefore, we offer as many customization options as possible. Feel free to tailor every detail to your tastes and needs.
Select the perfect size depending on the amount of space you have and your plans. All dimensions – length, width, and height – are customizable. There is no space we cannot shelter. If you are uncertain, consider measuring the area you have to determine how big you can go on your prefab metal storage building.
We have both walk-in and roll-up doors. Use either or both of them for the most convenience and security. Also, you could use frame-outs only and leave the spaces open. Our doors come in different sizes, and you can have a say in their colors as well.
Add natural lighting to your building with some windows. You can have them on any of the walls and at any position – left, right, or center. Our windows, too, come in varying sizes. Feel free to put up as many as you want.
We have a comprehensive palette with over 15 unique colors. Talk of shades of blue, green, red, beige, burgundy, clay, white, black, and so much more! We allow our customers to select unique colors for different parts of the building, achieving the perfect look. For instance, you could contrast the trims from the roof and walls with a different color, or match them with the doors and windows. No additional charges!
As we mentioned earlier, you get to choose from 3 different roof designs. Each style has unique merits, so you are sure to find your perfect fit. Consider the surrounding buildings, weather conditions, and preferences when selecting the appropriate roof style.
12- and 14-Gauge Tubing
Our frames come in either 12-gauge or 14-gauge steel tubings. Both are structurally sound and offer adequate protection under moderate weather conditions. However, 12-gauge is significantly thicker, and, therefore, stronger. It can handle dynamic loads with astounding durability. We recommend 12-gauge frames where there’s harsh weather or when you want the strongest, longest-lasting building.
26- and 29-Gauge Roofing Panels
For the sheeting, you can choose between 29-gauge and 26-gauge. They are both similar in appearance, although 26-gauge is heavier. As expected, it is also stronger and more resistant to the elements. You want to go with 26-gauge for the most robustness and reliability when the weather goes nuts.
Since some local authorities have laws regarding minimum snow and wind loads for steel structures, we design certified steel storage buildings that meet various standards. These structures are sure to outshine the worst forces of nature that could attack in your region. We are talking upwards of 140mph wind speeds and 30PSF snow loads. They also come complete with all the necessary documentation that you will need to pass building inspection.
Non-certified buildings do not have to meet any requirements regarding precipitation and wind. For areas with fair weather conditions, these will stand the test of time pretty good. If you want the ultimate protection and durability, however, our certified buildings will serve you better. Not to mention, they come with longer warranties.
Good Things Come in Metal: The Numerous Benefits of Steel Storage Buildings
Where should we begin? These buildings come with so many benefits, each one just as important as the other. Here’s an overview:
- Durability – The durability of pre-engineered metal storage buildings is a major selling point. These buildings demonstrate an unparalleled ability to withstand the test of time. They can take anything that Mother Nature throws at them, from heavy precipitation to insane winds, tornados, and earthquakes. Our galvanized steel is super-resistant to corrosion, and do we have to bring up molds, termites, and rot?
- Versatility and Flexibility – With the absence of interior columns taking up space, their layout is more flexible than any other building type. Also, there is no limit to how big we can go, which means you can shelter anything from the clutter in your house to a manufacturing plant.
- Quick Assembly Time and Affordability – We design every single part to fall into place without a hitch, thereby saving on time and construction costs. Additionally, the joints leverage screws and nuts rather than welding, further saving time and cutting down on costs.
- Environment-Friendly – With little-to-no on-site modifications, these buildings don’t do any harm to the surrounding during installation. What’s more, steel is 100% recyclable. The largest percentage of steel that goes into your building is recycled. When you go for a Metal Storage Building, you are helping save the environment.
A Size for Everyone at Affordable Rates
Metal Storage Buildings come in varying standard sizes, starting at 12’x21’. You can always go bigger and biggest according to your needs. The price is subject to various factors – like size, roof styles, added customizations, and your location. In general, these structures start selling at $1,500 and upwards.
American Metal Buildings also supplies storage building kits, enabling the DIYers out there to further cut on construction costs and have some fun.
