July is pretty much gone, and fall and winter will be here sooner that you think, so no, it’s not too soon to be thinking about winter. Your farm equipment, bicycles, tools, tractors, even your vehicles—you might want to think of a place to secure all these things when the weather starts to change.


The main concern in the summer is having a carport to keep your vehicle in the shade. And that’s smart—a carport can protect your vehicle from direct sunlight—but have you considered an enclosed metal unit instead?


The price might increase because of the sides and garage doors, and more if you add features like windows, walk-in doors, or insulation. But there are advantages to consider too. Carports provide shade and partial protection, but an enclosed building can keep your small valuables and even your big toys well-protected. And if you’re considering making your metal building a workshop, you can opt for a vertical-siding unit that can be insulated. American Steel Carports offers insulation (R value 16) only for buildings with vertical siding.


This 24′W × 41′L × 12′H fully vertical metal building is an example of what we’re talking about:


Fully Vertical


2 – 10’x10′ Roll-Up Doors

Walk-In Door (side)

Fully Insulated



This building is fully insulated. R value 16 comes with a vapor and radiant barrier protection, meaning you’ll have a cool, dry structure in the summer and a warm, dry structure in the winter. If you’d like to learn more about our insulation, click here.


All our belongings need to be secure and protected, so consider the advantages of acquiring a fully enclosed metal building. Remember, all our units can be modified according to your needs. If insulation wouldn’t benefit you, we can always remove it. Contact us now to talk to one of our building specialists, and they will help you customize the best structure within your budget.
