Metal Building Types & Styles

You’ve decided to buy a metal building, and now you’re fenced about what type of building to buy or which garage roof styles or metal building roof styles are right for you.

Let’s run down your options to give you a better look at steel building styles.

Types of Metal Buildings

Whether you’re looking for a residential building such as a garage or workshop to improve the look of your property while filling a serviceable need or you’re a commercial customer looking to set up a warehouse or storefront, we’ve got you covered. We also offer agricultural buildings, including barns for livestock, and equestrian barns to house horses. Our industrial buildings are ideal for several purposes, from storing and working on equipment to housing a factory or other industrial endeavors.
Below are numerous types of steel buildings to meet your requirements.

Roof Style Options for Steel Buildings

After you select the right type of building for you, you’ll need to decide on the metal building’s roof style. The roof you choose should be based on several factors, the most important of which is the weather in your area. Viking Steel Structures offers:

Regular Roof Style

Customers who live in areas with mild weather, often choose our most affordable roof – the regular roof. This roof offers the same heavy galvanized steel construction you depend on from Viking Steel Structures, but in a more affordable footprint. This roof provides a viable solution for many buildings, from metal carports to steel garages and every type in between, and serves the general purpose without inflating your budget.

Boxed Eave Roof Style

Boxed eave roofs have the aesthetic that many people prefer since they look much like the roofs on traditional houses and other structures. They have an A-frame design that many people like, and they are also designed to hold up to moderately bad weather, including snow. If your area faces frequent snow and heavy rain, then this building is a good option. However, even buyers in areas where the weather is mild can stand to benefit from the boxed eave roof.

Vertical Roof Style

A vertical roof is the best choice for our customers living in areas of the country where the weather turns foul, including states where the snow is heavy. The vertical design allows snow and rain to dissipate from the roof’s top surface quickly, so the snow load does not affect the integrity of the structure. The Vertical design makes it easier to dig out after heavy snowfall hits your area. So, if your area has lousy weather, then you should buy a vertical roof type carport or any other vertical roof style metal buildings.

Now, you must be sure about which barn roof style or steel building roof style you should opt for. If you still have some dilemma, call us at 877-801-3263.
