The need for an agriculture building isn’t cookie cutter! Many projects require custom-sized structures and non-traditional footprints. And that’s where metal buildings shine! These structures can be designed for any need and at any size. From equipment sheds to fully-livable homes, they can do it all!
As we’ve mentioned, there are several roofing styles available to you, including:
- Regular Roofs : A regular roof features rounded corners and horizontally placed paneling. It’s a great economical choice that’s designed to handle most mild climates with little to no need for reinforcements.
- A-Frame Horizontal Roofs : An A-frame roof looks more like the roof you’d find on a home, with overhanging awnings, a sharper roof peak, and horizontal paneling. It’s a great mid-level choice that’s best suited for high winds but minimal rainfall.
- Vertical Roofs : A vertical roof is our most hearty option, with vertically oriented paneling. This design allows debris such as snow, rain, or leaf matter to easily and harmlessly fall away from your building, keeping it in pristine condition longer.
We have a large assortment of colors that give you the power to make your structure look exactly how you want it. And if you prefer a more subtle approach, you can change the color of your trim, roofing, and even wainscoting!

Doors and Windows
No enclosed structure works without doors and windows! And luckily, you’ll have a wide variety of options to choose from! We have standard entryway doors, larger garage doors, and more. And if you have a custom door in mind, we’ll be happy to measure and design the frame to your specifications!
Traditionally, most residential buildings use 14-gauge steel frames. However, if you live in a region that experiences violent weather patterns, you may want to opt for our thicker, 12-gauge paneling.
While not necessarily a customization option, our installation crews will use one of several types of anchoring systems, depending on your foundation type. For dirt foundations, auger-like anchors are screwed into the soil. For asphalt, spiked stakes are driven through the foundation. And for concrete, our most popular option, we use specially-designed concrete bolts to secure your structure to the foundation.
The certification system is a standardized process that determines whether a structure can handle the wind, snow, and seismic forces in a particular region. Building inspectors require a structure to be certified before issuing a building permit for most localities. Additionally, you’ll want to ensure that your building is certified if you expect it to be included in future appraisals.
