Understanding the Benefits of a Clear Span Metal Building

There are a lot of advantages to using a clear span metal building, but there are several factors that you must consider before deciding on purchasing one. Most of the factors associated are related to the budget, the use of the building, and when you need it. The great thing about clear span metal buildings is that they are not only versatile and beautiful but have a lot of amazing benefits to offer as well. Here, at Keen’s Buildings, we want everyone to understand the benefits of a clear span metal building. So here is everything you should know about them.

Why Own a Clear Span Metal Building?

One of the main reasons why people choose steel buildings over traditional ones is because they are more cost-effective and can be custom-built. Traditional structures may take months to be installed, but clear span metal buildings only require a few days. You also get certified engineering documents with the building, and the installed is carried out by trained builders.

·      The different types of clear span buildings

There are several options available to you when it comes to clear span buildings, and you can choose between a multi-span or single structure. Most factories and warehouses will require a multi-span structure because they need a building with structural integrity. A single span structure is ideal for a space that is only 12 to 30 feet wide.

·      Sustainable construction

Apart from their speed of construction and cost-effectiveness, clear span metal buildings are sustainable as well. They are made from recycled materials, and the steel can be reused once the building outlives its life. Clear span buildings will also allow you to get a green building certification because the steel can be recycled when it reaches the end of its lifespan.

Unique Features of Clear Span Metal Buildings

There are a lot of unique features associated with clear span metal buildings, which you won’t find in traditional buildings. These features include enduring quality, exceptional traits, and spacious interiors, while you get a low maintenance and highly versatile building for your business as well. Here are the unique features of clear span metal buildings in greater detail:

·      Spacious Interior

You don’t require any support posts for clear span metal buildings, which means you get more space inside. The high ceilings allow you to stack goods higher, and get more storage space.

·      Exceptional Acoustics

They also feature exceptional acoustics, because of sound-absorbing walls, which sound-proofs the entire building and allows you to focus on your work. That is a great benefit if you plan on doing a lot of machine work in the building since the sound-absorbing walls won’t let noise escape the building.

·      Built to last

Clear span metal buildings are made from high-quality and durable galvanized steel that comes with corrosion and dust protection. That means that you get a building that can withstand all weather and wind challenges for maximum returns on your investment.

Tips to Buying a Vinyl Shed

Storage sheds come in many different shapes and sizes. In fact, storage sheds come with so many options that our customers are often faced with the choice of purchasing a shed with aluminum siding, T1-11 siding, Hardi-plank siding, steel panels or vinyl siding. Each type of siding has its benefits to the customer but when a  shed is to be used for at-home-storage, many of our customers like to use vinyl siding. So to help you decide if vinyl siding is the right choice for you, we’ve created this post to discuss what does vinyl siding does for you and what are some things to look for when purchasing a vinyl shed.

Maintenance Free

The beauty of vinyl siding on a storage shed is that it is virtually maintenance free. However, to ensure that it will continue to be maintenance free for several years of storage, there are a few things to look for.  If you are storing larger and heavier items, it is important to look for pressure treated shed joists as well as make your floor a thicker concrete slab by about ¾ of an inch more. If for some reason the floor will be getting wet, (this could be because of wet items being stored immediately or just to hose off the interior of the shed occasionally) then purchasing a floor with water sealer of pressure treatment is ideal. By ensuring you have these things, you can know that you will have a beautiful shed that is maintenance free and that will protect and store your items for the years to come.

Is There Enough Room?

Sometimes we get caught up in the idea of a storage shed and forget to remember if we have enough room for one. The most common base for a vinyl storage shed or building is a base of ¾ inch stone that is 2 feet wider and longer than the shed. This creates a good base with plenty of space for the shed. If you can fit the base, you’ll be able to fit the shed. Also, it is important to consider that while getting a vinyl shed that is already put together and ready for installation is the best way to buy a shed, it can also mean trailers and large trucks needing space to deliver it to your intended spot. So be prepared to accommodate the extra space needed for delivery.

Customizable Benefits

Vinyl siding is perfect for at-home-storage because not only is it maintenance free and durable during all weather, it also has a more stylish look that adds to yards or at home storage areas. Vinyl comes in a large variety of color choices and are completely customizable (metal trim, roof shingle and shutter colors) to match your home. This makes your shed look like it was meant to go with your home and add value to your yard.

Sheds can also be created with windows, window screens and even shutters to create an even more cohesive look with your home. Sheds can also be customized with security systems and temperature control when you are storing temperature or expensive sensitive materials.

The benefits of vinyl for at-home storage is almost immeasurable but hopefully with this quick post and these tips, you can see how a vinyl sided shed may be the right choice for you and you will be able to chose a quality vinyl shed from Keens Portable Buildings.

Deciding What Size Metal Shelter or Shed to Get That Fits Your Needs

Purchasing a metal storage garage is a big decision that takes some time to review and discuss. While there are several things to take into account when deciding on purchasing a metal carport or shed there are two items to think over that are the most important. The first is to determine what your metal storage shed will be storing and how big of a metal garage you will need to shelter those items. To help with those decisions, we’ve created a brief list of what items are most commonly stored in metal storage sheds and how to decide which size shed/garage to purchase.

If You Are Storing A Car

If you are purchasing a storage shed to house and store a vehicle, it is very important to get a metal garage that fits your car with space to spare. You will first want to measure the length and the width of the vehicle being stored as well as how tall the vehicle is at its absolutely tallest point. That will ensure you have a carport that is the perfect fit for your car. But what many people forget is that once the car is snuggly nestled in its new home, you still need to get out of the car without dinging the doors. If you are using your metal storage shed for a car, always give yourself enough width (usually a few extra feet) to get out of the car, as well as enough height to stand up without bumping your head.

If You Are Providing a Shelter for Animals

If you intend to use your metal garage to provide a shelter for animals it is important to take into account the type of animals you intend to house. For larger animals such as horse and livestock, you will want a much larger metal garage with openings for stalls and entrances. For caged animals like guinea pigs or rabbits, measure out the width and stacking height of the cages as well as the depth. Be sure to compensate for a pathway between each side of the cages and take into account whether or not you may need more space in the future and plan accordingly.

If You Are Storing a RV or Boat

RVs and boats can be stored under metal carports or in metal storage garages and each has its benefits. To further protect your RV and Boat form the elements, it is suggested to purchase a fully enclosed garage with a garage door. You would measure this the same way as you would if you were storing a car. Measure the width, length and height of the car and then add a few extra feet to the width to account for opening doors and getting out of the garage. Also, remember that if online prices only go to a certain height, contact us and we can discuss custom carport and metal storage garage options.

If You Are Storing Every Day Outdoor and Household Items

If you are using your metal storage shed to store household items, then you will want to make sure there is plenty of space for your items, with extra space to spare for organizing and walkways. If you have items that are temperature or light sensitive, you can look into custom options that allow temperature control as well as windows, skylights and lighting systems. Other custom features available are security systems for those precious and valuable items being stored.

The Metal Shelter or Shed That Fits Your Needs

Always remember to measure what you are storing and prepare for having walkways, organizing and extra space if needed. One important thing to remember is that we have staff on hand to answer any questions you may have, so if in doubt call us, and we will gladly provide you with the information you need.

Should You Build a Carport or a Garage?

Carports and garages both offer protection for your vehicle from harsh elements throughout the year, whether you live in an area that is hit with heavy snow every year or the lack of trees in your neighborhood leaves it open to excess sun damage. With either option, your car will receive some of the protection it needs, you won’t have to scrape iced windows before leaving the house, and it can even add some value to your property.

The question is, then, which one is better for your situation? Many people might automatically assume that the garage is the better choice in most instances, but that isn’t necessarily always true. There are definitely some advantages to both, so you just have to decide which one fits your situation better.

The Advantages of an Enclosed Garage

Any time you are working with an enclosed structure, there will be a number of inherent advantage. Obviously, something that has all four walls and a roof will offer even more protection from the elements than a carport, but it will also offer an added degree of security for anything you want to store inside it. The ability to lock the doors and windows means you can do more than just park your car there.

These walls also make the structure more stable, so a garage is likely to stand up to harsh weather conditions for longer. If you’re looking for an addition to the home where you can keep your car or other valuable possessions, and plan to be in the home for a while, this may be the best option for you.

Carport Benefits

A carport, on the other hand, is going to be a more affordable option than a fully enclosed garage. With the quality steel and engineering that goes into these structure, though, they are still extremely durable and can stand up to serious weather conditions.

A carport is also a more versatile option. Since it’s more of an “installation” than it is a “construction project,” it can be set up without any major excavation of the land. And if the location turns out to be not quite right, you can always adjust its positioning without a lot of work. It’s also important to note that without these structures require a lot less maintenance than a garage, and with our range of designs, you can find something that will go perfectly with your home.

Carports with Additional Storage Areas

There are carports that have been designed with additional storage areas built on to them so that the owner can enjoy having all of the great qualities that a custom built garage has to offer without having to pay an installation crew to build one. A carport is a structure that covers your vehicle or other large piece of equipment that must be kept outdoors such as a tractor or riding lawn mower.

Many people who own these items may not have a garage connected to their home and therefore they need to purchase a building or structure like a carport to keep their expensive lawn equipment or vehicle protected from harmful weather or other outdoor elements.

While a standard carport is able to serve the purpose well, a carport that has additional storage space added on to it offers even more benefits because it can provide you with extra space to store away smaller lawn equipment, garden tools, or large storage containers that are full of seasonal decorations.

There are also some carports that can be used as barns, and have compartments where livestock can rest and tractors or other farm equipment can be stored away. This is a very convenient option for people who have small farms with one or two horses or cows on their land. They do not have to invest in having a large barn built when they only need an area for a handful of animals to stay. These barn ‘carports’ are made out of high quality metals that are built to last and withstand everything that nature has to throw at them.

Many carport companies will also have metal buildings in stock as well that can provide you with adequate storage space for all of your lawn equipment or seasonal holiday decorations. These steel buildings can also add value to the price of your property and a metal building will hold up much longer and provide more protection than a standard wooden storage shed could.

Caring for your Steel Building

When it comes to steel or metal buildings, there really is not much maintenance required in order to keep these high quality storage buildings looking their very best. These steel buildings can provide you with clean and dry environments to store away all of your infrequently used possessions such as holiday decorations, summer sports or swimming pool equipment, lawn maintenance equipment and gardening tools.

 

Unlike wooden storage sheds that are typically less expensive and are made out of lower quality materials, steel buildings do not need to be constantly treated to prevent wear and erosion. They are solid so therefore they do not a lot of access points where mice, rats, insects or other pests can make their way inside and begin to build nests or destroy items. Moisture is also not a huge problem when it comes to dealing with metal buildings so you do not have to worry about keeping the place dry.

 

It is a good idea however to clean out your metal building or carport on occasion to make sure that no pests were able to somehow make their way inside and check for leaks every so often as well so that your items inside will not get damp during the next major storm. Aside from that, there really isn’t much that you need to do in order to keep your metal building, carports or steel building looking the way that it should at all times. The high quality materials that are used in order to construct each metal building that is on the market today help to ensure the fact that you will have your storage building around for many years to come and that you have made a worthwhile investment. Carport Empire carports and other structures can provide you with the right amount of protection in order to keep your vehicles and other items safe at all times.
