FAQ

Horizontal or Vertical roof and sides

Our buildings come with either Horizontal or Vertical roofing and siding. Horizontal panels run the length of the building. Vertical panels run up and down the pitch. If you live in an area with snow of excessive rain Vertical is recommended.

Customizing

We can make your building in custom sizes, heights, length, width etc. We cannot make buildings so they don’t follow engineering codes. Everything we do is engineer certified. In certain areas we also do non certified.

Full Galvanization

All our buildings are galvanized for rust and corrosion prevention. This is very important especially in areas where snow is treated with salt. Also areas near the coast because of salt air.

In order to protect our customers as well as ourselves all our installers are licensed and insured. They are also factory trained for competency and skill.

What is the difference between a carport and a garage?

Offering convenience, carports & garages are a practical added space to cover cars, tractors, or other equipment. 

 

A carport is a half covered, open-style steel structure designed to cover cars, tractors or other automotive equipment. Carports are built to withstand unpredictable weather and consist of a roof supported by posts or steel beams. At Terrapin, carports are completely customizable buildings that come in different sizes, heights, colors, and are all rust and corrosion preventative. 

 

A garage is a completely enclosed structure with roofing, walls and a doorway for entrance. Detached garages (built apart from the house) are made of American Steel and allow for customization. Metal garages are ideal for property owners who want to protect their belongings or vehicles from their local climate and potential theft. Garages and lean-too’s can not be physically connected to an already built structure as they must be self supporting. 

How long does it take to install a metal garage? Am I responsible for installing it myself?

Individually installed per site, we aim to have the shortest building time versus our competitors. It takes our professionally trained crew 1-3 day to install a metal garage (depending on size & customization.) Our free delivery and install program releases you from installing it yourself. 

 

 

How should I prepare my space for a metal garage?

Each surface for a metal garage must be dirt, cement or asphalt.

What are the three roof styles of the garage?

We aim to make sure your roof not only fits your individual preference but also your local weather conditions. Depending on the need for doors, windows and insulation you will need to choose from three roofing styles. 

 

Regular Roof Style has horizontal panels with rounded corners and no trim. A regular roof style resembles the design of a barn. Although this is the most cost effective route, it may not be ideal for every location. 

 

Horizontal Metal Roof panels run the length of the building whereas Vertical roof panels run up and down the building. If you live in an area with snow or excessive rain, the Vertical roof is more highly recommended. Vertical roofing allows for sliding and are overall stronger.

What They’re Saying

We purchased a loafing shed from Terrapin Steel Buildings. It has been the best thing we have ever done for our small farm. No longer do our horses have to stand out in the snow and the rain during winter months. They can also hide out of the sun in the summer. Great Shed, Great service. Thank you so much!

Pat S.Pueblo, Co.

We called John at Terrapin not having a clue as to what we really needed. After a few questions he determined we needed a loafing shed and a mini storage to shelter our horses and tack. The investment was small compared to the value we gained. John was not pushy like some of the other companies we called. In fact he told us to take our time and think it over. When does that ever happen anymore? Definitely recommend this company. Awesome is an understatement.

We bought a Garage, Carport and Storage Shed. They were installed about 6 weeks later and were without a doubt one of the best purchases we've ever made.

I shopped around and just couldn't find a better warranty for the price point. John, made it really easy. Thinking about buying another structure for my mom's property.
