Roof Options for Raised Center Style Barns
The raised center barn is a popular style, both for its flexibility in usage and for its unique aesthetics. It’s usually designed as a three-section barn with a taller section in the middle, flanked by two shorter sections on either side. These barns are engineered on an A-frame style roof configuration, which can either feature a boxed-eave roof style or vertical roof style.
What’s the difference? While boxed eave and vertical roof styles may look similar at first glance, there are some notable differences. A boxed-eave or standard A-frame style matches that of many house roofs, so it blends in well with the look of your home or other surrounding structures. With a boxed-eave roof, roof paneling is installed in a horizontal configuration.
Raised center barns with vertical roof styles, on the other hand, include a few additional benefits that are worth noting. The roof structure is reinforced with adding bracing, making it our strongest available roof design. And as its name suggests, a vertical roof features panels which run vertically. The key advantage of vertical paneling is its ability to direct both precipitation and debris off of your roof and away from your barn with greater ease than paneling which runs horizontally.
Features, Specs, & Custom Options for Raised Center Barn Buildings
Some folks probably assume that all raised center metal barn buildings are the same, but that’s not so. Carports R Us gives you the freedom to customize and personalize your barn to really help set it apart, as well as enable it to do exactly what you need it to do. You choose the barn’s dimensions, steel gauges, door & window options, colors, and more!
Size & Style -- How do you intend to use your barn building? What animals, feed, equipment, vehicles, or other items do you want to be able to protect? A raised center barn can also be built large enough to accommodate essentially anything you may need. The building’s width, length, and height are essentially up to you. Just let us know what you need, and we’ll work to make it happen!
Framing & Paneling Gauges -- 14-gauge is a common standard for many steel building applications, but you can also elect for a thicker 12-gauge for an even sturdier building. And what about the gauges of steel paneling for your roof and side walls? You get to decide those as well.
Doors & Windows -- Which types of access points would be best for your steel barn? We offer garage-style roll-up doors and walk-in doors, or you can also opt for open frame-outs as well. You also have the freedom to decide where they go on your particular building. Want to add some windows for natural light and ventilation? You can do that, too!
Color Options -- Your raised center barn doesn’t have to look like just any other old barn. What color or colors would you prefer for your roof, side paneling, and trim? We’ve got lots of great color choices, and you can even choose to mix or match your colors if you like.
Certification Choices -- Where will your barn be installed? Do you need it to be certified for any minimum wind or snow loads? Carports R Us can certify your barn to meet any needed stipulations. But even if certification isn’t required in your location, it’s still a good idea to choose a certified building in order to increase your peace of mind in terms of the structural resilience of your building.

Possible Raised Center Barn Applications
Another advantage of choosing a steel barn building from Carports R Us is the fact that our structures are useful for a variety of outdoor building applications.

Horse barn or stable -- These barns are an obvious choice for keeping horses, along with the other supplies that go along with horse ownership. If it’s a horse stable you need, a raised center barn can be an ideal solution.
Livestock barn -- Perhaps you’re not a horse owner, or perhaps you’re just looking for a facility to house other types of livestock. In either case, these barns work well for keeping most any types of animals.
Poultry barn -- Need a poultry barn or chicken coop? Raised center barns can meet all of your needs for that, and more.
Dairy or egg production -- Looking for a place where you can do more than just raise animals or chickens? A raised center barn building can be useful for dairy production, egg production, or other related applications.
Shelter for tractors, machinery, & equipment -- Need someplace to park a tractor, keep your attachments, or store some equipment? A raised center barn can be designed to accomplish all of that with ease.
Residential or commercial applications -- You don’t have to be a farmer to be able to take advantage of the look and functionality of a barn building for a variety of other useful applications. These barn-style buildings can be used to park passenger vehicles, keep a wide assortment of items in protected storage, meet some particular commercial or business needs, and much more.
