The Boxed Eave roof style (also called the A-Frame style) is very similar to our top selling Standard roof style in most ways. However, it has a more traditional roof line that many homeowners prefer because it better complements their the look of their home. It is built on the design of our popular Boxed Eave Carport, then fully enclosed with color-matched side panels on all sides, and your choice of garage doors or walk-in doors for access. It’s inexpensive, quick to assemble, but offers solid construction and looks great.
The Boxed Eave Garage is available in sizes ranging from 12′ wide by 21′ long — perfect for one average-sized vehicle with room to comfortably get around it — to 30′ wide by 41′ long, which can comfortably fit two large vehicles with plenty of room to spare. All our garages are 9′ tall or taller, so large trucks, SUVs, and vans should have plenty of clearance.
Our Boxed Eave garages are constructed with 14 gauge galvanized steel framing with center bracing, and 29 gauge metal roofing. All base carport units have legs spread 5′ on center or less, and four 2′ corner braces for added strength and stability. Concrete or rebar anchors are included.
Many other optional features are available to customize the look and enhance the durability of your Boxed Eave garage.
When built and installed properly, the Boxed Eave roof garage is rated to handle up to 35 pounds per square foot (psf) snow load. That’s generally more than enough to handle any storm we see in the United States as it allows for nearly two feet of the heaviest, wettest snow you can imagine. Of course, if Mother Nature decides to nail us with something awful, you may want to go out and rake some snow off your garage’s Boxed Eave roof. And, if lots of heavy snow is a routine fact of life where you live, upgrading to a Vertical roof style may be wise, since its vertically-installed roof panels make it much easier for snow and ice to slide right off, while also enhancing structural stability and looking even nicer.
The Boxed Eave roof garage is also rated to withstand winds up to 140 miles per hour, which will hopefully outlast any storm you ever have to face. It’s important to note that stability in heavy winds depends on the structure being installed properly, preferably on a concrete footing and with a full bracing package, which is an optional purchase. That purchase can pay for itself in a few seconds if a heavy gust of wind comes through and your metal building stays put. Other optional upgrades for added strength and stability include 12 gauge framing, extra panels, extra roof bows, and welded trusses. And, if you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your garage (Man Cave, anyone?) insulation is also available to keep it comfortably warm or cool inside.
