Most of our designs come from our customers’ most valuable ideas—the ideas that complement the very idea of what a metal building is. Customization helps us implement these ideas.
When it comes to customized metal buildings, our clients’ biggest fear is that our units won’t withstand harsh weather. To verify your specific local wind rates, you’ll have to contact your city’s building department. But the main protection we offer is the addition of anchors. We do offer rebar anchors (temporary anchors) for free, although they don’t come with any guarantee. Much better are our asphalt and concrete mobile home anchors, which have a warranty for winds of up to 90 mph.
What happens if the winds are stronger?
If the winds are stronger, we start by adding more trusses. In some cases, we add bigger peak and corner braces.
American Steel Carports does not do any concrete work, but we do offer our customers recommendations for concrete foundations. This a good example of one of our customers in Portales, New Mexico:
• 22′ x 26′ x 10′
• A-Frame Horizontal Roof
• 14-Gauge Galvanize Tubing
• 3 – 9×7 Roll-Up Doors (2 on left side, 1 on right side)
• 36×80 Walk-In Door (front end)
• 12′ x 26′ x 10’/8′ Lean-To
• Continuous Roof
• 25′ Double Bar Header (for Lean-To)
*DISCLAIMER: Headers may vary upon county regulations or snow loads*
