What Are the Advantages of Metal Garages?
Whether you are building a stand-alone steel garage structure, converting an existing metal carport into an enclosed steel garage, or you are building a metal garage to anchor and attach to your home or shop, choosing metal over wood has a lot of lasting advantages.
Durability and Longevity
Steel buildings are known for their exceptional durability. They are resistant to decay, termites, fire, and rot, unlike traditional wooden structures. This makes them a long-lasting option, requiring less maintenance over time.
Strong Weather Resistance
Steel garages can withstand harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, high winds, and extreme temperatures. This makes them an ideal choice for areas prone to severe weather events.
There is a high degree of flexibility in designing Steel garages. They can be customized in terms of size, layout, door styles, windows, and colors to suit specific needs and preferences. This customization extends to interior features, allowing for insulation, electrical wiring, and plumbing if desired.
When properly insulated, metal garages can be highly energy efficient. This insulation not only helps in controlling the temperature inside the garage, making it comfortable to work in year-round, but also reduces energy costs if heating or cooling is required.
Increased Property Value
A well-constructed steel garage can add significant value to your property. It enhances the property's aesthetic appeal and functionality, which can be an attractive feature for potential buyers.
Beyond serving as a space for vehicles, metal garages can be used for a variety of purposes. They can be transformed into workshops, home gyms, hobby rooms, or additional storage spaces.
Safety and Security
Metal garages provide a secure environment for vehicles, tools, equipment, and other valuables. They can be equipped with secure locks and security systems, offering better protection against theft and vandalism.
Many metal garages are made from recycled materials and are fully recyclable at the end of their lifespan. This makes them a more environmentally friendly choice compared to other materials.
Metal garages require minimal upkeep. They do not need painting as frequently as wooden structures and are less susceptible to damage from pests or moisture.
Prefabricated metal garage kits can be quickly and efficiently installed compared to traditional construction methods. This not only saves time but also reduces labor costs.
Choosing Between Metal Garages vs Metal Carports
Choosing between a metal garage versus a metal carport involves considering several factors based on your specific needs and preferences.
Some of the reasons to opt for a metal garage vs metal carport are that steel garages offer:
- Full Coverage: Steel garages offer complete protection from the elements, including wind, rain, and sun.
- Security: Metal garages are more secure, as they can be locked to protect your vehicles or stored items.
- Extra Storage: Steel garages provide additional space for storage, tools, hobby items, equipment, or even a workshop.
- Adds Value to Property: Metal garages can potentially increase the value of your property more substantially than a metal carport or metal shed can.
- Customizable: Metal garages offer exceptional customizing options, as they can be insulated, heated, or air-conditioned and can come in a variety of color choices, have the addition of windows and garage doors, and more.
When is a Metal Carport a Better Choice than a Metal Garage?
In some cases, installing a metal carport on your property has its advantages. The choice comes down to a number of factors, including budget and overall needs and purpose of the metal building.
Metal carports are great for the following reasons:
- Cost-Effective: In general, carports are less expensive than buying a garage. However, be sure to request price options for your metal garage and see what customization options can be done to meet your storage needs.
- Quick Installation: Oftentimes, metal carports are easier and faster to install.
- Less Space Required: Metal carports occupy less space, which is beneficial for smaller properties.
- Versatile: Metal carports can be used for vehicles, outdoor gatherings, or as a shaded area.
- Minimal Permitting: Metal carports often require fewer permits and less stringent codes.
Choosing the Right Metal Garage for Your Needs
If you are unsure of the type of steel building you are looking to have installed on your property, our experts in metal sheds have a breakdown of the types of metal building options available to you. The team at Eagle Carports are here to help you determine the best metal building for your needs, so we are taking a closer look at the steel building choices for your home or business. From understanding the right roof style to the right square footage of steel garage space you need, we are here to guide you.
Regular Style Metal Buildings
Our regular style metal garage buildings are the most economical way to protect your vehicles and valued possessions in need of storage. If you need a metal garage longer than 36 feet, we strongly recommend upgrading to a vertical roof style steel building to avoid any potential leaks at the seams.
Our regular metal garage with rounded eaves features 14-gauge galvanized steel with center bracing and 29-gauge metal roofing. This makes for a strong, stable building that will withstand the test of time and protect your belongings from damaging outside elements like rain, ice, and heavy snow loads.
The regular style metal garage’s bow or truss is created by bending the material to create its unique shape and has roofing panels that run from front to back, while offering enough height clearance for SUVs, trucks, and other car storage.
Boxed Eave Style Steel Garages
Our steel garage with boxed eaves is an economic roof style that features 14-gauge galvanized steel with center bracing and 29-gauge metal roofing for a strong, stable building that will withstand the test of time.
The boxed eave roof style metal garage has a classic A-frame style appearance, offering great curb appeal for your home or workshop space. This popular metal roofing choice offers steel roofing panels run from front to back, allowing us to reduce costs while maintaining a great look for your metal storage building project.
Vertical Roof Style Steel Buildings
The vertical roof style metal garage is the strongest, most long-lasting roof style available.
The roofing panels are laid in a vertical orientation starting from the peak and ending at the eaves or sides. To do this the structure requires an underlayment of 18 gauge hat-channel which gives the metal building added rigidity and strength.
Our vertical style roof metal garage allows the water, snow, and leaves to run off to the side of the building, preventing rust and wear.
