A-Frame Barn Details
Our A-Frame Metal Barns are some of the most recognizable barns we have. They feature with a raised center and lean toos on both sides. You can order your A-Frame Barn with either a vertical Roof or a regular horizontal roof. If you opt of a horizontal roof though, you will be capped at 36′ long because our sheet panels only go up to that length. All A-Frame Barns with greater than 36′ long will have to be ordered with a vertical roof.
Many of our customers choose to add gabled ends to their vertical carports, which fill the triangular space between the tops of the legs and the peak of the building. A gabled end cuts down on your clearance height, but at the same time, it adds more support and gives the steel building a more refined look. Gabled ends can be added to the front, back, or both ends of a metal carport.
When purchasing an A-frame carport, it’s important to determine how much clearance you need. The goal is to have enough vertical space inside your carport once it’s installed. Finding the clearance for your vertical carport is relatively simple: start with the leg height. The roof has a standard pitch of 3/12. This measurement means the roof will rise 3 feet for every 12 feet of width. Alternatively, this is equal to a ¼ pitch. In that case, go up one foot for every 4 feet of width. If you aren’t sure what size carport to order, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll walk you through the steps of determining the proper height and clearance you’ll want to meet your needs.
We can install your carport on either cement or ground. If we install on ground, it is up to the customer to make sure the ground is level. When a carport is installed on concrete, the carport gets concrete anchors, while when it is installed on ground, the carport gets 3-foot rebar anchors with a nail head top.
