Elephant Structures metal buildings are very versatile and can be used for many applications. From automotive vehicle protection to commercial equipment storage, our buildings are strong, long-lasting, and look great on any property. Every unit we produce can be permitted and certified if necessary for construction purposes for your home or business. They can be insulated and fully finished on the interior if you wish to build-out the interior.
We also offer multiple roof styles to create unique appearances to match your tastes and the styles of existing structures on your property. These include:

Regular Roofs: This economical style roof has rounded eaves and can be used on all carports, garages, and barn (2 or 3-bay) buildings.

Boxed Eave Roofs: This is a traditional a-frame style gable construction. These structures look great with existing buildings and are available in both 3:12 and 4:12 pitch. The metal roofing runs horizontally across the roof, or from end to end down the length of the building. Boxed eaves are recommended only up to 32′ long to avoid any seams.

Vertical Roofs: Vertical roofs are like our Boxed Eave Roofs, but the sheet metal paneling runs vertically. Vertical roofs offer superior strength and durability with great weather protection. These roofs allow rain, snow, sleet, and other debris to easily run off the building down the vertical channels created by the metal roofing. This style roof can be extended across a building of any length. Vertical roofs are required for any building over 32′ long to ensure a durable, weather-tight roof for years to come. You could build a structure 99′ long or more, and you’ll achieve the same great protection across the entire building.
