Metal garage buildings add valuable space for storage, workshop use, and more. They're a fantastic addition to any home or business. Alan's Factory Outlet offers a wide range of metal garages for sale online. Our customizable metal garage kits mean that your new garage will meet your specific needs. Our metal garages come in 3 different styles: The regular style steel garage, boxed eave style steel garage and the vertical roof steel garage.
The regular style garage is the only one that comes in a rounded barn shaped roof. The regular style steel carports are the most economical of the 3 roof lines you can buy.
The boxed eave and vertical buildings look exactly alike at first glance, but with one major difference; how the roof sheeting runs. On the boxed eave metal garage the 29 ga sheeting runs length wise just like on the regular style, but on the vertical roof garage the sheeting goes up and down, which helps the snow or rain slide off. The vertical steel garage is the most expensive style of our metal garages for sale, but is the strongest of the three garages.
When you order from Alan's Factory Outlet, you save on shipping and installation fees. Please note that our metal garages are currently available for delivery in sixteen states. The metal garages are delivered and installed for free only in these states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
When you buy the metal garage online your credit card with be processed only between 10% to 17% deposit after you approve the order on the metal garages. The initial deposit can be paid with credit card or check. The remaining balance is due after it is built or installed, and can be paid with either credit card or check, whichever is best for you.
The difference between the boxed and vertical roof style is the vertical buildings are made with the roof panels going up and down so snow easily slides off the roof.Please keep in mind the steel garages are only delivered and
installed in AL, AR, GA, KS, KY, LA, MS, MO, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WV.
We strongly recommend that if you get a steel building that is 41' long to go with the vertical roof, because we do not have 41' long panels; which means we have to overlap 2 panels and this creates a week spot and an area that is prone to leakage issues. On the vertical garages because the roof panels are up you do not have that kind of situation.
The metal garages for sale are custom built in the size, style and color you want. We can customize metal garage buildings to accommodate specific storage needs as we can custom build the structure with taller legs, larger garage doors, and thicker 12 ga tubing which has a 20 year rust through warranty. Size customizations are particularly helpful for your garage purchase if you're planning to store items like RVs, boats, and other outsized equipment. Additionally, all of the metal garages come with a 1 year workmanship warranty from the date of installation.
When your order metal garage kits from Alan's Factory Outlets, you get to pick from 13 different colors for the roof, sides and the trim color which is on the end along the roof line sides. All of the metal sheeting comes in 29 ga and has a baked enamel finish.
The tubing on the carports comes standard in 14 ga 2 1/2" square tubing. You can always upgrade to thicker 12 ga tubing, which is sized at 2 1/4" square tubing. 20 year rust through warranty on both the 14ga and 12ga metal frame tubing.

There are a number of metals which have been discovered. They generally have similar properties such as being shiny, able to conduct electricity and remain solid at around room temperature. Nonmetals are usually the opposite of metals in their properties. They are not shiny, are not good at conducting electricity and at room temperature may remain a solid or turn into liquid or a gas. Some examples of what are considered metals are Aluminum, Potassium, Gold, Silver, Copper, Sodium and Mercury. Elements that would be considered non-metals in the periodic table include Nitrogen, Oxygen and Hydrogen. There are also a group of elements that have some properties of both metals and non-metals. And tend to fall in the category between the two groups. They are called metalloids and elements in this group include Silicon, Boron and Carbon.

Everyday people are outside walking, running, and generally enjoying being outdoors. While outdoors moving, many times people tend to lose coins, keys and other objects and are not recovered. In fact, there is a vast array of items that are just waiting to be found. And, the way to find them is through metal detecting. Metal detecting has been a hobby that became popular with the invention of the metal detector. In the late 19th Century, the first metal detector was created. Using the concepts of electricity and magnetism, the metal detector was used to determine where metal objects may reside. Metal detecting has been a fun and sometimes lucrative hobby which can be done by people of all age. To help you learn about metal detectors and metal detecting, please feel free to review the following information.
