Horizontal Metal Roof

Horizontal Roof Style

Symmetrical, Simple, and Modern! On a horizontal A-frame metal building, the steel panels run horizontally, with finished edges providing an L-shape trim on the ends and box eave trims on the sides. The horizontal layout of the roof means that less structure is needed beneath it, lowering the overall cost.

Our A-Frame roof style is a favorite and recommended for steel buildings and carports no longer than 36 feet long.

Vertical Metal Roof

Vertical Roof Style

Although we can’t deny our vertical steel structures look great, it is more than a matter of style. On a vertical roof, the steel panels run from the peak downward, making it easier to displace water and heavy snow.

Our vertical structures include a ridge cap sealed with black foam at the peak, vertical above-eave trim around the entire edge, and a hat channel that runs along the roof, making it the strongest roof style available. We recommend an A-Frame Vertical roof for all steel buildings and carports greater than 36 feet in length.

Regular Metal Roof

Regular Roof Style

The old-fashioned way everyone finds charming! On a regular style building, the pre-manufactured bow is bent along the edge, creating a traditional rounded shape structure. The steel panels run horizontally, with finished edges providing an L-shape trim on the ends.

This metal building style is the most economical design available and is recommended for steel buildings and carports no longer than 36 feet long.

Steel Frame

Our steel buildings and carports are constructed from either 12 or 14 gauge steel frames. The 14 gauge steel frame, 2 ½`` x 2 ½`` in diameter, is the most common frame thickness for metal buildings. The 12 gauge frame, 2 ¼ `` x 2 ¼`` in diameter, has a higher tensile strength and is recommended for areas with high winds or heavy snow, as well as carports taller than 10’.

Our Steel buildings and carports are backed by a rust perforation limited warranty of 1-year for 14 gauge steel frames and 20-years for 12 gauge steel frames.

Mobile home anchors are 30 inches long and corkscrewed into the dirt or gravel. They are installed on the inside of the railing unless the customer specifies otherwise. If the metal building and carport is ever moved, these anchors must be cut and re-purchased.

Asphalt anchors are 30 inches long and driven into the asphalt. They are specifically made for the asphalt and installed the same way as the mobile home anchors.

Concrete anchors are specific for use in concrete. We use 6-inch long, 1/2in diameter red-head anchors. We suggest that the concrete is at least 3 inches wider and longer than the metal building to prevent cracking or busting the concrete. For example, on a 30x20 building, the concrete should be 30ft 3in wide and 20ft 3in long. Northedge Steel assumes no liability for damage done to concrete during standard anchoring application.

Rebar anchors are 3ft long straight rods for dirt or gravel. They are installed through the base rail into the ground. They are not attached like a mobile home anchor. These are temporary anchors with no wind warranty.
