  • Overview

    Morgan Steel Buildings in Texas
    A common sight on business properties and residential yards in the state of Texas are the unique, portable, steel-walled buildings manufactured by Morgan Buildings and Spas, Inc., headquartered in the Dallas suburb of Garland. The small- to moderate-sized buildings are popular due to their convenience, versatility and modest cost.
  • Building's Description

    A typical Morgan steel building is a single-room structure. The structure is comprised of wood studs and roof trusses that are joined with clench plates to form a highly rigid frame. The frame is mounted on a heavy-duty floor and foundation that rests on a pair of thick wooden skids made from pressure-treated beams. The walls and roof are fashioned from thick-gauge steel sheeting. The solidly integrated building can be set up without a concrete slab and can be easily relocated without any damage to the structure.
  • The Reputation

    Morgan buildings are famed for their strength and long-term durability. Many buildings have been in continuous use for several decades with only minor repairs or maintenance. Morgan portable buildings are able to weather intense storms as well.

  • All-steel Clearspan

    Morgan also has a line of all-steel buildings that are comprised of steel siding and roofs mounted on a tubular steel framework. These clear-span buildings often serve as carports, garages, barns, sheds and large-equipment shelters.

  • Styles and Functions

    Morgan buildings are multipurpose, serving uses from storage sheds, workshops and hobby huts to retail shops, snack bars and garden centers. Styles range from peak-roofed buildings to barns and garages. Morgan buildings can be custom-designed to meet individual needs. Options include insulation, wiring, plumbing and interior finishing. Larger buildings can be partitioned into individual rooms.
  • About Morgan

    Morgan has five manufacturing plants in Texas and neighboring states, and an additional facility in Canada.
