Roof Types

Direct Metal Buildings proudly offers 3 roof types to meet your needs. See below for information on our Standard Roof, A Frame Roof and Vertical Roof.



The Regular Roof



Regular roof is our most economical style. It has a rolled roof, which comes down the sides about 6 inches strengthening the sides as well as the roof. The ends of the roof overhang 6 inches past the frame on both gabled ends, giving the carport a finished look. We use the longest single sheet in the industry to help prevent your roof from leaking at a seam. Direct Metal Building's roofs come with a leak warranty. These sheets run horizontally in a single sheet up to 36', allowing this design to be and effective and economical choice for your building.



A Frame Roof



The A Frame Roof is named for its roof line design. This roof offers a more traditional building look and has a 6 inch overhang past the frame on both ends. Direct Metal Building's A Frame carport offers very clean lines and the ability to easily distinguish between the roof and walls. The roof sheets run horizontally in a single sheet up to 36', allowing this design to be and effective and economical choice for your carport.



Vertical Roof



The Vertical Roof is an A-Frame roof with the panels installed vertically instead of horizontally. This means the corrugation of the metal runs from the ridge cap down to the eave of the building. The A Frame Vertical has the attractive look of traditional metal buildings. This design allows for an unobstructed run off of rain, snow and debris. This design offers tremendous advantages. It is a considerably stronger unit as it has addition hat channel supports running horizontally down the building allowing for a heavier roof load and more stable building. The A Frame Vertical roof also allows for buildings over 36 feet long to remain leak resistant as there is no roof seam. Catapult Carports strongly recommends the Vertical Roof Carport for buildings over 36 foot, high snow load and high wind speed areas.
