When it comes to metal buildings www.carportsnsheds.com carries every size from 12’ to 100’ wide and the length is only limited by the amount of space you have and your budget. Our metal buildings are available in 12- and 14-gauge galvanized steel and can be purchased in a certified and non-certified version. Our certified metal buildings are engineered to pass inspection and come with free blue prints for you to submit to your county, the frame spacing is anywhere from 3.5 to 4.2 OC depending on what your county requires. NOTE: spacing is determined by your county’s requirements.
Our metal buildings are extremely versatile when it comes to doors and windows. For our metal buildings we provide roll up doors in 6x6, 8x8, 9x8, 10x8, 10x10, 12x12, and 14x14 however you can also install your own panel door. If you are installing your own door on our buildings, we can custom make the frame out that you need.
Pulling a permit for your metal building is extremely easy, most of the time it is as easy as going to your local inspection agency and filling out an application. In some cases (this varies by county) if your metal building is under a certain square footage, they might not even require a permit. Not all counties are the same, some are stricter than others and might require you to submit a detail plan of what you are building along with an inspection to your septic tank and a rough drawing (by hand) of where the building will be. In addition, you they might require you to be a certain distance away from the property line and your septic tank, this is why it is very important to check with your county first.
Pouring a slab for a metal building will also depend on what the county requires, make sure the check with them first. In most cases the slab will need to be at least 4 inches thick and will need either rebar, wwf(welded wire fabric) or a fiber glass mixture with a 3000-psi cement. In addition, some counties may require a footer if that is the case the footer will need to be made according to their specification: most footers are 12”x12” with rebar. If your county needs a blue print for the slab let us know and we can get it made most at the time at no additional cost (in some rare cases an extra fee is needed).
NOTE: when purchasing a building we highly recommend to avoid the 2 ¼ x 2 ¼ 14 gauge steel, here at www.carportsnsheds.com we only use the 2 ½ x 2 ½ that is as strong as the 12 gauge.
