Depending on where you’re building we offer wall heights of up to 20’. Please contact one of our building specialists to discuss your needs.
The dimensions of our buildings are the outside measurements of the roof which has a 6” overhang on each end, so the building itself is one foot shorter than the roof. The width is measured from the outside of base to outside of base. For Example: A 30’ x 41’ x 12’ building’s actual dimensions are 30’ x 40’ x 12’.
The size of your pad will depend on where you’re building, whether or not you’re going to pour a footer and whether or not you’re going to pull a building permit.

- Make sure to obtain all local permits, research any subdivision covenants or restrictions and identify any zoning department setback requirements or easements.

We supply 3 different types of anchors:
- 32” rebar anchors are used for ground/asphalt installation
- Double helix mobile home anchors are used for ground/asphalt installations that are certified (Those anchors can be used on non-certified ground installations for an additional charge.)
- Wedge anchors are used for concrete installations.
We offer three different roof styles:
- Regular Style: These roofs have rounded eaves/corners and are the most economical and affordable of the three styles.
- Boxed Eave Style: The roofs are designed with an “A” frame roof truss and horizontal roof panels. The eaves are squared and look more like a traditional roof. Upgrading to a Boxed Eave style roof is an affordable way to improve the overall look of your building.
- Vertical Roof Style: These roofs are similar to the Boxed Eave Style roof but they include vertical roof panels and a hat channel that runs the length of the roof to cross brace the roof and provide a mounting point for the roof panels. This design helps prevent rain and snow from accumulating on the roof. Our Vertical Roof Style buildings come with a ridge cap and specially designed wider trim that give the product a more finished appearance.
Boxed eave style roof is most attractive and the Vertical roof offers the best protection against leaks from heavy rain and snow accumulation.

No, you may choose any of our colors and choose different colors for the roof, the trim, the sides and the gable ends at no additional charge.
A certified building is one that is engineered to meet specific snow and/or wind loads. Since many areas in the northeast require that a building meets a specific snow load, and many areas along the coast require a specific wind load, if you live in any of these areas you should be aware of your local building code requirements and purchase a building that meets those specifications. In many cases if a permit is required, you will need a certified building.
All frames are made of galvanized steel, 14 gauge frames are 2½” x 2½“ and 12 gauge frames are 2¼“ x 2¼”.
