The most frequently purchased SteelMaster structures in Colorado are garages, closely followed by other storage buildings like workshops. We offer a variety of models and sizes for any storage need. Our DIY metal garage kits are ideal for anyone who wants to get extra storage space and great quality for an affordable price. SteelMaster workshops are the perfect place to organize, store and protect your valuable tools and machinery as well as provide comfort, security and durability against fire, snow, and hurricane-force winds.
With bitterly cold temperatures and intense snow storms, Coloradans need buildings they can trust to withstand heavy snow loads. SteelMaster offers metal buildings that are be able to protect people and their property from the weight of accumulated snow and ice.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the annual average snow total for the United States is around 25 inches of snow per year. The annual average snowfall in Denver alone is over twice that amount, totaling 53.8 inches. The town of Crested Butte, which is located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, has an average snowfall of 216.6 inches per year.
If a home is not well prepared or designed sufficiently, the weight of extremely heavy ice and snow can cause the roof to collapse. This can cost thousands in repairs and cause injuries to those inside of the home. SteelMaster’s durable, metal Quonset Huts are engineered to handle the heaviest snow loads.
SteelMaster’s metal buildings are able to handle the snow load in any region. Our steel buildings follow the snow load provisions required by the ASCE 7-95 and those of the IBC. Many localities and zip codes also add their own specific codes for their areas. Our arches are created with commercial grade, high quality steel that can be customized to accommodate extra heavy snow loads in areas that experience frequent snow storms. Any of our models can accommodate these loads including the A-Model, S-Model, the classic Q-Model and the X-Model which is the most popular for heavy snow. The X-Model has a 4:12 pitched roof, which makes it easier for heavy snow to slide right off. We also offer a C-Model that serves as the best carport in snowy climates.
Several SteelMaster commercial clients in Colorado depend on our structures to protect their expensive equipment. Our top-quality building kits, as well as custom structures, are made to fit each customer’s unique needs.
The Denver Airport uses SteelMaster carports to protect their vehicles from the elements year round. Many of the other carports on the market are built with thin materials that are vulnerable to strong winds and heavy loads. SteelMaster carports are made with the best, most durable steel and the beams are also incredibly strong. Our carports are also easy to construct and take less time to build than a traditional garage.
Nearly 400 miles away, the Telluride Airport in San Miguel County uses SteelMaster Quonset Huts to store equipment and trucks, as well as fuel buildings. ExxonMobil uses a SteelMaster metal building at its natural gas processing plant in western Colorado’s Piceance Basin.
A volunteer based community project in Colorado called Urban Hens uses SteelMaster buildings to create their chicken coops. The group builds and donates hen houses to Boulder and Denver schools and community organization to teach children about environmental awareness and sustainable food systems. The ten hen buildings are a mix of metal and SteelMaster’s corrugated metal roof arches overhead. Not only did steel arches give the coops a trendy look, but they helped make the structure relatively cheap, light and easy to assemble.
