Metal building weather-resistant properties

Your new metal building has been engineered to meet local codes and withstand numerous different weather conditions ranging from heavy snow to hail and high winds. As a non-combustible material, steel naturally has fire-resistant properties as
well! Steel buildings are engineered to meet or exceed your local snow load
to withstand the weight on the roof of the building, so you can assure your
steel building will protect your valuables during the next heavy snow fall.
When you purchase the recommended number of anchors, you are wind-certifying
your steel building to withstand winds up to 120 miles per hour. Here at Midwest Steel, all buildings 32’ wide and up are manufactured with vertical roofing and siding for easy run-off. Vertical roofing and siding are engineered with additional framework as well for significant reinforcement. Some contractors may even offer standard
packages that are included in your project to help the building withstand
water. Midwest Steel uses steel sheeting that has 40% more resistance from dents caused by harsh hailstorms. Lastly, steel is a naturally non-combustible material,
meaning it won’t ignite or burn. For more info on how steel buildings
withstand various weather conditions, click here.

A-Frame Horizontal Roof

A-Frame Horizontal roofs give your structure a residential look. The sheet panels run from side to side and does not have purlins or ridge cap. The increase in price to upgrade to A-Frame Horizontal is the additional welding needed on your trusses (bows). An excellent option to keep your residential look for residential areas for a minimum upgrade costs.


A-Frame Vertical Roof

Known as the best choice for areas that experience extreme weather conditions, the vertical roof style is hands down the best choice for Michigan weather. The roof panels run from the pitch to the eaves causing heavy snows, rain, and natural elements to slide off the roof easily. In order to tie down the panels to the structure, we must add purlins or hat channels lengthwise making the structure more rigid. The finished look with special trim all around the roof and ridge cap makes this roof style the best option.
