BUILD YOUR BARN

Need A Metal BarnMetal Building, or Metal Garage?

Use Elephant Structures® BuildID™ System, The Easy Way to Build & Buy a Metal Barn or Storage Building Online.

Here at Elephant Structures, we pride ourselves on providing customers with everything they need to buy the best metal buildings, steel barns, carports and garages in the industry. This step-by-step buying guide will assist you with your purchase. If you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call or simply email us; we’d be proud to have you as a customer. Okay, so let’s start the process: First, metal barns can be customized from a basic vehicle cover to a fully-enclosed, fully-insulated structure. In fact, many of the barns we sell have been used for farm and tractor storage as well as beautifully finished horse stables; the uses really are endless. To help customers with the buying process, Elephant Structures developed its patent-pending BuildID™ system to make the selection process simple and easy to understand. Throughout our website, Elephant will provide you with photos, definitions, and a thorough explanation of the various options.

Metal Barn Roof Styles

The frame of the steel barn is always one foot shorter than the length of the roof you select. Make sure when ordering your structure that you consider this. In terms of style, we have a basic regular roof (round roof on our County Barn), an A-Frame roof (boxed-eave roof on our Ridgeline Metal Barn), and a vertical roof on our Valley Barn and optional on our Ridgeline Barn. All color options are available on any style roof. While the roof selection is a personal decision based on aesthetics and budgets, we would like to point out the various benefits of each:

Interior Detail

The County barn from Elephant is extremely strong with great finishing detail. Note, depending on engineering requirements, bracing may vary by state, region, city, or zipcode.

Triple Wide Bows

Large center widths, over 24 feet wide, have additional center bracing as shown. All triple wide buildings are certified to meet or exceed wind and snow loads.

Regular Roof

Our standard regular roof features horizontal panels which run from front-to-back. Because the regular roof style requires the least complicated construction, it is our most economical choice. It is important to note that we recommend that buildings longer than 36 feet should upgrade to a vertical roof.

A-Frame / Boxed-Eave Roof

The A-Frame style roof features horizontal panels which run from front-to-back and a boxed-eave trim covering the interior eave-side of the truss for a finished look. This gives your metal barn sharper angles.

Vertical Roof

While this is similar to the A-Frame style roof, the vertical roof is our premium offering and includes additional framing for added strength and durability. The roof panels are vertically oriented and run from the ridge cap (or peak) down to the eave-side. This is the best roof option that we offer as it allows snow, water, leaves, and other debris to easily run down and off of your building. The vertical roof is recommended on all metal barns that have excessive snow load requirements and especially on buildings over 36’ long.
