What are anchors?

Anchors are how your steel building is reinforced and anchored into the ground for support. The type of anchor used on your building depends on the base your building will be installed on. For example, if your building is installed on concrete, it requires concrete anchors. If it is installed on asphalt, it requires asphalt anchors, etc. If you choose to have anchors added onto your structure, the anchors certify your unit for a specific wind speed and are at an additional cost. Click here for more info on anchors and how they can benefit you.

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.
