Our buildings come with either Horizontal or vertical roofing. 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.

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 structures.

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.

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

A carport is typically a half covered, open-style steel structure designed to cover cars, tractors or other automotive equipment. However, you can customize your carport by adding side walls and ends for more privacy and more secure storage. 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.

Individually installed per site, we aim to have the shortest building time versus our competitors. It takes our professionally trained crew 1-3 days to install a steel carport (depending on size & customization.) Our free delivery and install program releases you from installing it yourself. However, if you desire, we can drop off the unit for a self-install option.

Each surface for a metal garage must be dirt, cement or asphalt. Also, it needs to be level within 2″-3″.

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 except for on ends. 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. You may want to consider an A frame style roof instead. In snow-prone areas, we recommend A frame vertical roofs.
