The Best Metal Barns in the Business
These are the most popular metal barns we offer at Global Carport. Chosen by countless farmers across the U.S. to protect their equipment, livestock, and crops, no matter the conditions.
Which Style of Roof Is Right For Your Metal Barn?
If you work in agriculture, you know the importance of choosing the right tool for the right job. At Global Carport, our experienced building experts will help make sure your metal barn has the perfect roof for your location and situation.
Vertical Roof Barns
If you regularly have to deal with more extreme weather where you live, especially heavy rains or consistent snowfall, a vertical roof metal barn is the best choice by far. Visually similar to the A-frame roof but with one critical difference: the durable steel panels are aligned vertically rather than horizontally, preventing the accumulation of snow and debris.
A-Frame Roof Barns
An A-frame roof for your metal barn provides a small upgrade over the regular roof in terms of durability and style. These roofs have horizontal panels and box eave trim on the sides, and comes to forming a triangular peak. Another excellent choice for residential areas and smaller-scale farming operations in moderate climates.
Regular Roof Barns
The simple and classic regular roof steel barn is our most popular and cost-effective choice for protecting animals, equipment, and vehicles from the weather, rain or shine. The roof has horizontally aligned panels and a rounded shape that is similar to a traditional barn, but with the incredible durability of our high-quality steel. Perfect for residential areas and single-family farms.
Continuous Roof Barns
The most durable option, continuous roof metal barns are an A-frame style roof that comes to a higher peak than our other roof styles, and provides a greater level of protection by eliminating seams entirely. Capable of withstanding some serious weather conditions, this is a great investment for a variety of farming applications and larger operations.

Is a Metal Barn Really Worth It?
Put simply, yes. Compared with traditional barns, Global Carport metal barns quickly pay for themselves. If you’re still using a wooden barn, you are costing yourself money and putting your assets at risk.
When building an entirely new structure, steel barns are substantially cheaper to set up than equivalent wooden ones. On top of that, the maintenance costs for wooden barns over the lifetime of the structure are staggering. For the same price, you could buy two or three fully customized steel barns!
Durability and Longevity
Thanks to our use of top-quality materials, Global Carport steel barns will last for decades with minimal maintenance. They’ll also stand up to extreme weather conditions without the need for constant repairs.
Peace of Mind
We believe you should spend your time and energy focusing on what’s important to you and your business, and not worrying about wooden barn problems like termites, replacing shingles after a windstorm, or mold creeping into your crops.
The Future of Farming is Metal Barns
Technology continues to reshape the world around us, and those who don’t adapt will struggle to survive in the years ahead. As versatile as they are durable, metal barns and other custom steel buildings are an investment into future-proofing your business. Don’t let the expenses of a wooden barn keep causing you stress; call Global Carport now on (800) 918-7432, and let us show you how something as simple as a metal barn can change everything.
