People who are in the agricultural business and who raise cattle or horses in their day to day lives will know how important a good living environment is for the well-being of their animals. Metal Barns are popular among farmers. It is not just because barns provide habitable spaces for their livestock, but also that these structures can also give supplementary storage spaces.
Having extra storages within a barn come in handy to store the feeds of the livestock, crop and produce, hay, light, and heavy farming equipment, etc.
Traditionally, barns were made of timber as timber was easily available for the construction. Also, it was light and you could span greater distance with timber than with other building materials. Additionally, there were no practical alternatives to wooden pole barn which would eliminate all the faults.
However, the advent of steel buildings in the construction industry has meant people now have a better substitute for those timber barns. Our steel barns offer all the advantages of wood, affordability, lightness as well as aesthetics, and more.
What wooden barns fail to provide is durability, the flexibility of design, fire-resistance and low-maintenance; and this is exactly what these steel barns take care of. Our steel barns are far superior to the traditional barns in providing the necessary protection required to shelter your animals and belongings.
Steel barns are also structurally strong enough to withstand sustained weather abuse.

Metal Barn Specifications
When people purchase metal barns from us, everyone comes with unique requirements and different things he or she wants.
While presenting a standard design is easier, we know it does nothing to address the needs of the customer. We believe that our customers should not have to compromise their convenience when investing their money on our products.
That is why, at Carport1, we offer metal barns for sale that are fully customizable. When we say customizable, we mean you can modify each and every aspect of the metal barns as per your needs i.e. everything from dimension to the color to additional features.
Metal Barn Sizes
We have hundreds of options for a metal barn readily available in our stock supply. You can adjust the dimensions of these metal barns for sale, including the size of the lean-to. It’s done to make sure your metal barn is neither too big nor too small for your requirements. You can even order a metal barn with your own custom dimensions.
Metal Barn Material Thickness (Gauge)
The steel framing of the structure is made with 14-gauge galvanized steel tubing; the metal panels are made with 29- gauge galvanized steel sheets.
This type of framing is structurally strong enough to resist immense loads and can handle most of the weather conditions. However, if you live in an area where extreme weather is frequent or if you just want extra safety for your metal structure then you can add structural strength to the metal barn by upgrading the framing with 12-gauge steel tubes.
Metal Barn Roof Styles
When it comes to the roof styles, metal barns have more options than any of our other products. The horse barn comes with the regular roof style which means the central aisle, as well as the lean-to, has curved roof-line.

Features to Choose for the Best Metal Barn Prices
Of course, there are many factors that affect the price of a metal barn.
Dimensions: The bigger the size of a metal barn, the more its manufacturing cost. So, technically a smaller barn will cost the least. But a barn that is too small for your needs will end up costing you in the long run. It will not protect your belongings and is just more inconvenient to use. So, we always recommend sizing up than what you need. That way, you will not have to replace the barn every few years.
Barn Style: If you are looking for the most affordable option, then regular metal barns should be your go-to choice. The next best option is the A-framed roof with the horizontal metal panels. However, these options will only perform effectively in areas with mild to moderate weather conditions. In regions that face heavy precipitation, it will be more cost-effective to go for the vertical roofs.
Extra Features: You can also reduce the cost of the barn by decreasing its coverage. For example, a partially open metal barn will cost less than a completely enclosed one. That being said, the fully enclosed barn will provide better protection to your farm storage too.
