Stand Alone Frame System
We use only US steel in our slip-fit frame systems. Customers can use alternate exterior materials such as wood, stucco, and more.
You can have the highest quality steel panels in the world and if they’re not adequately protected, you’re wasting your money. All our Texas metal buildings and steel carports use the best painted steel panels that are also made in America – naturally. Click here to access our color visualizer tool
Installation and Construction
Absolute Steel Texas maintains relationships with many different professional installers who will erect your metal building or steel carport in most parts of Texas.
Concrete and Foundation Requirements
Texas is unique in that except in towns, cites and other municipal entities engineering and permits for a metal building or steel carport are not required. Texas counties require no engineering or permitting.
If you live in an incorporated municipality or town in Texas and you need engineered plans to obtain a building permit, we can do that. Our buildings engineer!

Mohave Series Building
Structurally, engineers consider it just as sturdy as the Sierra model and it has met engineering requirements in all 48 contiguous states. If you are looking for a traditional metal building look at the best possible price, then the Mohave series should be considered.
The Mohave has the classic profiles of traditional steel buildings except to make it more economical, its wall panels run horizontally. This eliminates the need for some steel framing on the walls but does not affect its engineering capabilities.
Sonoran Metal Building
Our Sonoran style is the least expensive of all our Texas steel buildings. We call it the Sonoran (after the Sonoran desert) because we feel it is best suited for dry climates as the roof panels run horizontally, thereby interrupting some of the water flow off the roof causing little bits of it to “hang up” on the horizontal ridges of the panels.
While we’ve not had them leak if properly installed, we suggest they not be installed in any climate experiencing much snow as the ridges do prohibit run off which can cause some snow build up over prolonged periods of winter weather.
Sierra Series Building
The Sierra is your classic metal building with the wall panels running vertically just like the roof panels. The Sierra features the Stand Alone frame system which means if you are considering an exterior different from metal panels this would be the frame system best suited for that. Customers who have bought this frame system have finished the exteriors in all sorts of different finishes: OSB & stucco, brick, barn wood and wood shingles just to name a few. And it looks great just like it’s normally sold–with painted metal panels!
Teton Series Building
The Teton’s unique exterior panels are designed to look like wood shiplap siding. The panels and the Teton’s distinctive 12” eave overhang look great in a residential setting. Fact is, unless you’re up close you wouldn’t even know the Teton is a steel building. The frame system is much like the Mohave because the Teton’s panels run horizontally. It has no purlins in the roof because the panels attach directly to the main frame members (rafters). Unfortunately it is not as inexpensive as the Mohave due to its heavy gauge panels and unique frame/trim pieces used to achieve the 12’ soffit overhang.
Only available to locations in GA, FL, AL, MS, TN, and SC
Alpine Metal Building
The Alpine’s steep roof lines (6/12 roof pitch) make it the natural metal building for the high country where you want the roof to shed snow as quickly as possible—that is the reason for high pitched roofs in snow country.
The wall panels can be applied horizontally or vertically. Indeed, the roof panels can be applied either way but we would recommend a vertical application of the roof on this steel building to allow for easy shedding of water or snow. An extra bonus—the Alpine offers some light weight storage solutions up on a second deck (optional—not included in the standard quote) which is a handy feature.
Gambrel Metal Building
The gambrel is sometimes called the Dutch Gambrel or Dutch Hip. The gambrel metal building has a symmetrical two sided roof with slopes on both sides. The upper slope is positioned at less of a pitch or angle than the lower one. Doing this provides all the advantages of a sloped roof while maximizing head room which is what it was designed to do. So while this upper space is handy to have, quotes on our website do not reflect any of the steel framing used to create that upper deck. See details and floor plans of the Gambrel style buildings.
Combo Metal Building
As its name implies, the Combo is part steel carport, part steel building. The result is a very practical metal building that gives shelter and storage at a price that’s hard to beat. The storage area can be located on the side or at the end depending upon your preferences. Side and roof panels can be mounted horizontally or vertically. If you’re considering a side combo, seriously consider having the storage access at either end so that whatever you have under carport doesn’t hinder access to the storage area when it’s parked.
The Stand Alone Frame System
The core of our Texas metal buildings
We use only US steel in our frame systems because then we know the steel in our metal buildings and steel carports measures up to the specifications that engineering calls for. It would be negligent of us to use anything else because foreign steel can be just like canned soup – you don’t really know what’s in it despite what is represented.

As far as the competition goes? We use larger sized steel, stronger steel (that actually specs out), and a more corrosive resistant steel so you’re ensured the best possible product that your money can buy.
No other tubular steel building system offers you the flexibility and ease of installation to make your exterior walls in most any finish you want—or the inside walls for that matter. Our customers have used our frame system along with wood, stucco, brick and even shingles to achieve the look they wanted.
The Stand Alone frame system is quite different from other steel building systems in that the structural stress in our steel buildings is evenly dispersed throughout the entire frame system. Besides saving tremendously on your concrete foundational requirements, this works quite well for cladding walls whether interior or exterior. It makes the job easier and cheaper because you don’t have to add much in the way of additional frame components.
So what does all this mean to you?
- This means you won’t have those cumbersome I-beams to deal with that require forklifts or cranes. This saves you money whether you build yourself or have one of our professional independent crews do it for you.
- This means you’re going to save on your concrete foundational requirements—depending upon the size of the metal building, this can amount to a savings of thousands.
- This means your end walls will not have those “cross-tie cable end supports” to contend with—we don’t believe a metal building should be “wired” together anyway.
- This means you have the most economical means to use most any exterior material you want on the outside of your steel building—stucco, brick, stone, wood etc. Yes, you can have the integrity and reliability of steel and still comply with your HOA or local building department.
- This means if you want a Texas metal building, you’re at the right place!
