Q: What are the dimensions you list? How should I read them?

A: We list the building dimensions as Width x Length x Height. For example, one of our models is listed as 18' x 21' x 6' meaning it is 18 feet wide, 21 feet long, and 6 feet tall. This means that you can fit one standard car in the space provided. Please note that the roof of every structure is always 1' longer than the base due to 6" overhang on each end of the roof.

Q: When are extra 4’ braces recommended or required?

A: We want to make sure your structure is as secure as possible. To this end, we require 4’ braces when the leg height is 8’ or taller on carports, metal garages, RV covers, and any other building that is not fully enclosed. We include them on all certified structures that are not fully enclosed. 

Q: Do I need to get a building permit? When should I get a permit?

A: Some areas require building permits to install metal structures. To find out about your local ordinance, please call your local zoning office. There you should be able to ask what is required in your community. The majority of areas do not require building permits, but it is still to a customer’s advantage to purchase a certified structure for long term performance of your metal structure.

Q: What is the widest building available?

A: We pride ourselves in customization and providing our customers with the exact carport or metal building they need. To this end we have a wide range of options for all needs. At the moment we can offer a carport style building from 12’ to 60’ wide, and other custom buildings such as enclosed buildings or barns. 

Q: What is the tallest building I can purchase?

A: The maximum height of our carports and custom metal buildings is 14’. Buildings that we sell that are 14’ tall must be 18’ or wider, and in select areas can go as high as 20’ on the sides. Please call our customer service representatives to see the tallest custom metal buildings available in your area.

Q: I know I want to add my own window or custom door to a custom building; can you help me with that?

A: Bargain Structure Installers will not install customer-supplied windows or doors, we can frame out openings for customers to complete the installation. Our installers can frame-out windows, walk-in doors, and garage doors. Speak with your sales person about this option if you are interested in using your own material in the installation.

Q: What is the difference between 12-gauge and 14-gauge steel?

A: Our most economical option is the 14 gauge steel framing. This is the industry standard, measuring 2 ½" x 2 ½" in diameter.

The lower the gauge, the thicker and stronger the material. Our 12-gauge framing is 2 ¼ " x 2 ¼" in diameter and has a higher tensile strength that provides higher snow load and wind load ratings. Which is why we recommend the 12-gauge steel for areas with heavy snow and high winds, as well as carports 10’ and taller.

Q: What is a certified building?

A:  Our certifiedstructures has been designed by an engineer and has ratings for wind and snow load. Some local ordinances require that you certify any building that you construct. The objective of the building codes is to insure safety and to protect the public. Some states, don’t require buildings to be certified because they may not have to worry about heavy snowfalls and high winds. Certain states require that any new structure constructed be certified. Some require all structures to be inspected, while others only require that occupied structures be inspected prior to people living or working inside. We are able to prepare and install custom metal carports and RV carports to meet the criteria for certification. 

Q: Do I need a building to be certified?

A:  Certain states require that any new structure constructed be certified. We are able to prepare and install structures to meet the criteria for certification. 

Q: If I buy a carport just for weather coverage, why would I need side panels?

A: Purchasing side panels will give you better protection from the sun, wind, and rain. The side panels will give the structure more support and strength from back to front.

Q: What if I need a building for business, do I need to take any additional steps?

A: Usually structures for commercial use will require a series of permits. Please check with your local building permit granting official and learn more about what you may need before we begin our installation. The installation will take the same amount of time on our end, but you just need to make sure that you have all the permits and necessary documents ready when we begin the installation.
