Eagle Carports' custom steel barn buildings offer several advantages that make them a popular choice for various applications, from agricultural to storage purposes. Here are some of the key benefits of installing a prefabricated metal barn building to your home or business.
Durability and Strength
Steel is a robust material known for its strength and longevity. Steel pole barns can withstand harsh weather conditions, including heavy snow, strong winds, and seismic activities. This makes steel barns from Eagle Carports highly durable and reliable.
One of the significant advantages of Eagle Carports’ steel barns is the ability to customize them according to specific needs. You can choose the size, design, and features that best suit your requirements, whether it’s for livestock, storage of farm equipment, or any other purpose.
Steel buildings require less maintenance compared to traditional wooden barns. They are resistant to pests, such as termites, and do not rot or warp. This reduces the long-term costs associated with maintenance and repairs of your steel barn.
Steel is a non-combustible material, which makes metal barns more resistant to fire. This can be a crucial factor in areas prone to wildfires or for storing flammable materials.
Steel is recyclable, and many steel barns are made from recycled materials. Choosing a steel barn can be a more environmentally friendly option compared to using new lumber.
While the initial cost might be higher than some traditional materials, the longevity, low maintenance, and durability of steel can make installing a steel building a more cost-effective choice in the long run.
Prefabricated parts make the installation of Eagle Carports' steel barns quicker and more efficient than traditional construction methods. This saves time and potentially reduces labor costs.
These steel barns can be used for a wide range of purposes, from agricultural needs to personal storage, workshops, or even as a personal garage.
Steel building barns are designed to withstand various weather conditions, providing a safe and secure environment for whatever is stored inside.
Modern steel barns can be aesthetically pleasing, with a variety of colors and finishes available to match different preferences and landscapes.
These advantages make Eagle Carports' custom steel barn buildings a practical and versatile choice for many looking for a reliable, long-lasting, custom steel building solution.

Uses for Your Steel Barn
You know you want to build a metal structure on your property, but are not sure if a prefab steel barn, carport, or garage is best suited to your needs. Traditionally, a steel garage is used to store and protect vehicles, tools, and other equipment, whereas a steel barn serves agricultural purposes like housing livestock and hay.
Agricultural Steel Buildings
Steel barn buildings are ideal for storing farm equipment, tractors, harvesters, and other large machinery. The large space and durability of steel barns protect these valuable assets from the elements.
Steel Barn Livestock Shelters
A steel barn provides a safe and controlled environment for livestock like cattle, horses, sheep, and goats. Steel buildings can be customized with proper ventilation and insulation to ensure the animals' comfort.
Hay and Feed Storage Barn
To protect hay and animal feed from moisture and pests, a steel barn offers an excellent solution. The durability of steel buildings ensures that the feed remains dry and fresh.
Steel Building for Residential Storage
A steel barn can very much act as a storage shed. For instance, you can use your metal barn for keepsakes, holiday decorations, lawn equipment, small vehicles like ATVs or bicycles, or seasonal outdoor games and toys. There is no limit to the storage needs that can be solved with the addition o fa steel building on your property.
Commercial Storage Steel Barn
If you need additional storage space for your business, a steel building works as a great storage shed for equipment, materials, tools, inventory, or other important items related to your business. A metal building from Eagle Carports keeps your items and equipment protected from the outdoor elements.
Workshops and Garages
For individuals who need a space for woodworking, mechanical work, or other hobbies, a steel barn can be converted into a spacious workshop. A steel building can also be used as a garage for cars, motorcycles, or boats.
A steel barn can be transformed into space for recreational activities like indoor sports, a home gym, or a game room.
Home Offices or Studios
With the rise of remote work, a steel building can be converted into a quiet and separate office space or a studio for artists and musicians.
A Steel Barn Greenhouse
A steel building is easy to insulate and customize, making it the perfect location to build a greenhouse on your property.
Your steel barn does not have to house horses or livestock. While that is the most common use for steel barn buildings, metal barns offer versatility for a number of uses. Contact our experts in metal buildings to discuss your storage needs and determine what kind of steel barn is best for you.
Types of Metal Buildings
Like all of our custom steel pole barns, a metal barn building comes in a variety of style choices that offer different features as well as different levels of protection and durability.
Steel Eagle Barns
The steel eagle barns are composed of 3 sections– the center section and a lean-to on each side of the steel building. All of our steel eagle barns can all be customized to be either fully enclosed, partially enclosed, or fully open depending on your individual needs.
Steel Horse Barns
The steel horse barn is the most versatile steel barn building and offers the highest amount of configuration available. Initially geared more towards agricultural use, this type of steel building is growing in popularity in suburban areas as a combination of vehicle protection, outdoor storage, and a workshop area.
Steel Barns vs. Wood Barns
Some benefits of building a steel barn vs. a wood barn on your residential or commercial property include:
- Affordability: Steel barn buildings can be more cost-effective than wood barns. The price of lumber fluctuates and can be high, whereas steel prices are generally more stable. Steel buildings often come in prefab kits, reducing labor costs significantly compared to the on-site construction required for wood barns.
- Shorter construction time: Steel barn buildings are typically made from pre-engineered components that are manufactured off-site and simply assembled on-site. This reduces construction time considerably.
- Longer lasting durability: Steel is more resistant to weather-related damage, including rot, warping, and termite infestation, which commonly affect wood.
- Limited maintenance: Unlike wood, a steel building is not susceptible to pest infestations, eliminating the need for regular pest control treatments. Steel does not rot or warp, reducing the need for repairs or replacements. Also, metal barn surfaces are easier to clean and maintain, requiring less upkeep to preserve their appearance and functionality.
- Fire resistant: Steel is inherently fire-resistant, which is a significant advantage over wood, especially in areas prone to wildfires or for storing flammable materials. Due to their fire resistance, steel barns may attract lower insurance premiums compared to wood structures.
