A-frame roofs are an extremely popular choice for carports. The main reasons for this are their ability to resist all types of weather, their adaptability, and their aesthetic value and ability to match the look of your home or business.

Why Choose An A-Frame Carport?
The most common reasons to choose an a-frame are to match the aesthetic of your home or main building and to resist heavy weather. In particular, the sloped edges of the a-frame roof mean snow, rain, and other debris will often slide right off.
A-frames are also some of the easiest types of buildings to construct, which can save you time and money. Their ease of construction and wide use also means we can modify your a-frame carport to match any aesthetic or design specification you have.
Boxed Eve or Vertical Roof?
We can construct your a-frame carport to any specifications you require. Perhaps the most important decision you’ll need to make is what kind of roof to go with.
This decision will depend primarily on how much you plan to spend on the unit, but also on the weather in your area as well as what you’ll be storing in the unit.
- Boxed-eave-style roofs have horizontal panels than run from the front to the back of the carport. These panels are less expensive to craft and install but will be worse at resisting weather.
- Vertical-style roofs have panels thatrun vertically, from left to right as you face the carport. These panels require more intricate construction and installation but will easily repel the weather. The channels in the vertical panels make it easy for snow, rain, and other debris to slide off the roof.
If you’re looking for the most stable and longest-lasting structure possible, a vertical roof will provide the stability necessary for long-term reliability. However, the lesser cost of the boxed eave roof will make it the better choice for some who aren’t looking to spend too much money on the structure.
Enclosed or Open Carport?
Much like with the roof, your choice of whether to add side panels and complete your garage or stick with the simpler carport design should depend on finances and weather.
An open carport is simple to construct which makes it less expensive. This could be more pragmatic if you are not storing anything particularly valuable or vulnerable. An open carport is essentially the frame of a garage supporting your chosen roof.
Naturally, the additional panels and labor required to complete a garage will cost more in the short term.
However, a fully enclosed garage is the only choice for complete weather protection as well as safety from theft or prying eyes.
We can turn an open carport into a closed garage with just the addition of a few panels.

Key Benefits of a Metal Building
A metal building is a worthy investment with several benefits. Here are six reasons why you should consider a metal building for your next project:
- Durable: Compared to wood buildings, a metal building will require little to no repairs. It will not warp like from rain or other outside elements and will stand up much better against pests such as termites. Since it will require little maintenance, it will also keep its value over time.
- Versatile: Metal buildings can be used for many purposes, such as for storage, car protection, workshop, and much more. You can originally have your shed built as storage for your garden tools and then easily transform it into a workspace for your hobbies.
- Customizable: Metal buildings offer plenty of customization options. It is easier than ever to build your custom steel building with us at Dayton Barns & All-Steel Buildings.
- Fire resistant: Protect your assets with a metal building, which does not burn as easily as a wooden building due to metal’s melting temperature being much higher than wood.
- Energy efficient: You can easily cut down your energy bill and save money with a well-insulated metal building.
- Eco-friendly: Metal buildings mean fewer trees cut down, which makes them environmentally friendlier than wood
Different Types of Metal Buildings
A metal building is a smart and advantageous investment. A few examples of the custom metal buildings we sell include:
According to Garage Living, a new vehicle averages $35,000 in costs, making it an investment you will want to protect from potential thieves and dangerous weather that result in cosmetic damage.
A steel garage is an excellent way to protect your vehicle from thieves or outside elements such as rain, snow, and hail. Hail damage often leads to hail loss claims, but not every car insurance will cover weather damage. A steel garage can also save you the headache of having to file a claim in the first place since it can protect you from weather-related damage.
In addition to protecting your vehicle, a steel garage is also a good place to keep extra storage.
A metal carport is another excellent choice for protecting your vehicle or storing farm equipment such as a tractor. Protect your car or other expensive equipment with a carport, which will provide cover from outside elements such as rain, snow, and sun.
What can you not do with a shed? A metal shed can make an excellent workshop for your hobbies, an imaginative playhouse for the kids, or extra storage for junk that usually hangs around the yard or has no clear place in the house. The imagination is the limit when it comes to a metal shed and the purpose you will give to it.
