  • April 14, 2022

If you are planning to put your money in prefabricated steel garages, you will have come across various customization options. Roof style selection is a major phase that you must complete wisely.

Steel prefab structures are always provided with three roof styles i.e.

  • Regular Roof Style
  • Boxed-eave Roof Style
  • Vertical Roof Style

First-time buyers get confused as to which among them is best for their structure and what differentiates them all?

Don’t worry! Viking Metal Garages provides you with detailed knowledge about all three roof styles. This knowledge will help you make a smart decision for the future and checkout a quality steel garage.

Below is detailed information about three roof styles offered by the metal garage dealers in the USA.

Roof Styles - Viking Metal Garages

Regular Roof Style:

It is often called standard roof style. All standard steel garages come with a regular roof style. In regular roof-style, steel panels are installed horizontally, parallel to the sides of your building.

However, these roof styles have rounded ends on the sides. This roof style is efficient in protecting your valuables from normal weather conditions.

Features of Horizontal Roof Style include:

  • Galvanized Frame
  • End Roof Trim
  • Horizontally Oriented Roof Panels

Boxed Eave Roof Style:

Boxed-eave roof style is also known as A-frame horizontal roof style. The steel panels are installed from front to back. It is a budget-friendly option that gives a residential look to your steel building.

Features of the Boxed-eave roof style include:

  • Galvanized Frame
  • End Roof Trim
  • A-Frame Style
  • Eve Roof Trim
  • Horizontally Oriented Roof Panels

A-frame horizontal roof style is a good option if you are looking for a low-cost roofing option that looks decent and gives protection from moderate weather conditions. This roof is capable of confronting normal rainfall, sunlight, and winds. However, it cannot safeguard your valuables from harsh weather conditions like hurricanes, tornadoes, heavy snowfall, floods, earthquakes, and more.

Vertical Roof Style:

It is the highly recommended and most durable roof style option available for metal garage buyers. In a vertical roof, the steel panels are installed from the center to its sides. The biggest advantage of installing a vertical roof is that they encourage water and snow dispersion, retains a clean roof, and requires minimal maintenance.

Features of vertical roof steel garages include:

  • Ridge Cap
  • Full Deep Eve Side Trim
  • Galvanized Frame
  • Full deep-set Roof Trim
  • A-Frame Style
  • Additional Steel Channel for extra roof Support

The steel panels are installed vertically, with each panel half its actual size. This results in more panels adding strength to the structure. Moreover, the roofing panels are further supported with hat channels that extend the strength of steel buildings to the next level.

When it comes to the right roof style selection for your building, you should never forget to know about the local building codes. In some cities, vertical roof style is mandatory; hence you can only purchase vertical roof steel garages for installation.

However, if your local building code allows you to order any roof style, you can choose from all three options. A standard roof style can only save your valuables from extensive sunlight.
