Do I need a special permit?

You, as the purchaser, have the responsibility of checking with your local government to see if any type of permit is required in your area. Requirements vary from county to county but are not normally required in Georgia except in coastal areas.

Can I have the structure installed on a location that is not level?

Yes. However you may be required to sign a disclaimer voiding the warranty. Contact us if you have questions.

What issue should I be knowledgeable of prior to ordering my metal structure?

It is very important for you to understand the importance of "level land". Your structure is built out of tubing and being more than a 6" out of level can create issues for the installers.

It may be necessary for you to do some alterations to your property if your desired location is more than 6" out of level.

What options do I have if I do not see the exact size I need?

We can meet most any size, however, pricing is calculated in 5' sections on length. If your "exact" measurement is not divisible by 5, then the next longest length price will be used to calculate your price.

If you do not see the width, use the next widest price listed.

What is the difference in the standard roof versus the vertical roof?

The standard roof application has horizontal lines or veins. The vertical roof, which is an up-charge depending on the size of structure, includes a ridge cap, additional bracing and provides vertical water shed. Both styles are efficient with the vertical roof option available only an A Frame structure.
