Steel Buildings are for Neat Freaks

Do you consider yourself a neat freak? Do you have a low tolerance for clutter? Is your attic and basement packed to the brim with decorations, old clothes, and mementos of the past? Would you love to retain things for sentimental and practical value but would love to rid them from your immediate sight? A steel building is a product just for you.

Steel buildings act as your own personal storage facility. Commercial storage is growing in popularity, yet it can be inconvenient to travel to and from the facility. In addition, monthly fees become just another bill eating away at your income. Steel buildings are a practical and economical solution for you.

People often try to find ready solutions. It is not uncommon to designate a portion or an area in its entirety to storage. People, who once had a spacious basement, attic, or garage, may now find themselves with spaces overflowing with stuff that has accumulated over the years. How do you feel about paying rent or mortgage for rooms that merely house your stuff? Don’t you feel like you can better utilize the space? Take action and get yourself a steel building; it can fit right in the backyard. You won’t have to travel far to get your items when you need them.

Are you a mom or dad that loves your children, yet can’t stand to see toys cluttering every room in the house? Turn a steel building into a huge toy chest. Keep all of your children’s toys out of the way until kids want to use them. This way, kids stay satisfied and you can maintain order and your sanity.

Steel buildings are a great solution for neat freaks. Talk to one of our representatives today about our huge selection of models. We guarantee we have something that is perfect for you.

Choose Siding for Your New Storage Building

A storage building is a useful property implementation.  It can be used for storing tools, doing craftwork, housing lawn equipment, and more.  We provide our customers with several options in regard to the siding of their storage buildings.  Read about our exterior siding options.


This choice features a natural wood-grained look.  The choice is celebrated by those who enjoy the emulation of a small wood cabin.  T1-11 was once the most popular choice, but other innovations have taken shape and some of the popularity away from it.  However, those who desire a more natural look still decide on our T1-11 siding.


Green products are popular as more people become concerned about the environment and their own contributions to a green planet.  Hardi-Plank siding is an alternative to other traditional options.  Hardi-Plank or fiber cement siding is a composite material associated with the green movement; implementation of the material saves endangered trees and does not release harmful chemicals into the environment.  The new-age siding material closely resembles wood when implemented on your storage building.

29-Gauge Steel Panels

29-gauge steel is the most durable choice of siding for your storage building.  This steel siding will last a lifetime and the color options provide the opportunity to match the look of your house.  Steel storage buildings can be purchased as certified or non-certified for wind speed and snow load requirements.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding has grown in popularity over the years. Storage building owners like the material due to low maintenance and economic pricing.  Our storage buildings feature vinyl siding installed over OSB (oriented stand board) for strength and endurance purposes.  This choice of siding will not flake or rot.  Like steel siding, vinyl siding is available in an array of colors.

Necessary Information Regarding a Storage Shed Purchase

We want to provide our customers with the best products and service possible.  In order to do so, we urge our clients to read the following information about a storage shed or carport purchase.

Survey the land mass where you would like your storage shed situated.  If the ground is not completely leveled then you may experience dissatisfaction.  A labor charge will be implemented if the crew has to do additional work aside from what is agreed upon before the first work day.

Let the work crew know about wires, gas lines, or utility lines that may exist underneath the ground near or on the work area.  Our installers are not responsible for any damages if they are unaware of underground objects and obstacles.

We do instate a return trip fee if our installers return to upgrade your storage shed or carport.  The total cost must be a minimum of $795.00 or there will be a $50.00 return trip fee added.

A deposit is warranted on your storage shed or carport when ordered.  If 100% financing was established then there is no deposit required.

The total balance of your storage shed or carport is required at the time of installation.  If your product is financed, the dealer will address the balance after installation.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, money orders, checks, or cash at the time of installation.

There is no refund policy on storage sheds or carports which are specially ordered.

The frame of your storage shed or carport will be one foot shorter than the roof in length. This is to prevent rain from coming in the end of your product.

We are more than happy to address any questions or concerns for our customers.  Give our customer support number a call at 1 888 620 0004.  We know we can provide you with a quality storage shed or carport that exceeds your expectations!  Thank you for choosing Keen’s.

Why Metal Carports are a Great Green Choice

These days, it’s all about “going green,” from the type car you drive, to the pest control products you use in your yard to the building materials you choose for your new or renovated home and metal carport. Keen’s Portable Buildings has you covered on one of those choices.

Our carports are built entirely of metal, which requires no harmful chemicals such as resin, wood treatments or pesticides that you typically see in traditional  construction, renovation and maintenance. Once it’s installed, a metal carport also is highly resistant to water, mildew and mold, which can emit toxins that make your family and pets sick.

Our metal carports are built to last, using heavy duty 29-gauge standard steel roof and side panels and 14-gauge standard steel tubular framing. If your metal carport is ordered certified, it’s specifically engineered to withstand heavy snow loads and high wind speeds common in your area, plus meet all the city, county and state building code and permitting requirements no matter where in the continental United States you live. Plus wood boring pests that can destroy a structure, such as termites, can’t eat through metal. Your certified metal building is guaranteed to stand firm for decades. But should you decide that its usefulness is over, metal building materials are 100% recyclable – a major “green” factor.

To further green your metal carport, consider insulation. Several environmentally-friendly insulation types including fiberglass, foam board and reflective insulation are easy to install in an enclosed metal carport and help conserve energy, further control moisture and resist pest invasions. Foam spray and rigid foam board insulation contains no HDFCs, VOC or Formaldehyde and does not settle or “gas off” over time and it completely seals your metal carport, blocking outdoor pollutants and allergens. And reflective insulation is made with aluminum foil – also completely nontoxic. These are important green considerations if you plan to use your enclosed metal carport as a workshop, office, studio, children’s playroom or for any other use that means you or the ones you love will be spending lots of time there.

Lighting your carport also can be eco-friendly. Install solar-powered lighting fixtures on the outside of your enclosed metal carport, or in and around your open structure. Motion sensor lights conserve even more energy and save money by activating only when someone is nearby.
