The Construction of the A-Frame Roof
You may call it a boxed eave style metal garage instead, but regardless of name, the A-frame roof design remains the same. Instead of being supported by bent frames that give the garage a curved edge where the roof and wall meet, A-frame metal garages feature the A-shaped frame style instead that gives the design its name. Welded corners and brackets give the roof structure greater strength and weight-bearing capacity. This is essential in areas with winter snowfall and storm winds that can cause damage by lifting from below. Even with the protection of four walls and full enclosure, the frame style of the garage still matters when it comes to resisting serious damage.
The actual roofing panels installed on the top of A-frame steel garages are installed parallel with the length of the roof, which means the raised ridges run horizontally. This installation uses less material than vertical roofing. The underlying framing is still stronger than what’s supporting the regular roof garage, creating a compromise balancing the best features of both vertical and regular roofs.
The Benefits of Choosing A-Frame Metal Garages
A-frame steel garages blend into the landscape around your home or business better than the regular roof structures we sell. Since the boxed eave has the same overhang and angle you’ll find on most homes and many businesses, you’ll appreciate how this kind of garage matches the exterior style that’s already established on the property. Aside from the aesthetic appeal, A-frame metal garages offer other benefits like:
- Flexible size options from a basic 12 ‘ x 12 ‘ to much larger structures for commercial use
- Improved strength for greater weight support in case a larger branch falls or the roof is covered in multiple inches of snow
- Roof overhang on the eaves to direct water away from the walls and foundation of your new garage. Add french drains during the pouring of the foundation for even better drainage.
