Garages vs. Carports; Which One is Right for You?

Jun 15, 2018 | Carports, Garages

One of the best things about our steel barns and buildings is that they can be used in a wide variety of different ways. Though you might think that a barn has limited applications, the truth is that a well-constructed, high-quality metal outbuilding is only limited in use by your imagination. In order to show you how useful these buildings can be, here are a few of their many uses:

Additional Storage

The first and most common use for a metal building is increased storage space. However, this storage isn’t limited to farm or yard equipment. A high-quality metal building is durable enough to protect just about anything you keep inside it, including clothing, tools, seasonal decorations, and more. Many people are concerned about leaks or damage, but in truth a metal building offers just as much protection as storage inside your home.

A Second Garage

If you like to tinker, or if you have three cars but only a two-car garage, you would probably appreciate some extra room to protect your vehicles from the elements. A metal building makes a perfect garage for a seasonal car, motorcycle, or any other vehicle. And because they’re stronger than wooden sheds, they can protect your cars from extreme weather like hail, ice, and wind-blown debris.

Extra Living Space

Perhaps your lack of space isn’t in your garage, but in your living room. If that’s the case, a steel building can be made into a surprisingly comfortable detached living area. With the right size building, you can make a private office, a game room, or even a guest bedroom. Metal buildings are easy to turn into finished rooms, and they’re far cheaper than building an extension on your home.
Of course, these are only a few of the many ways you can use a steel building on your property. If you want to take a look at all of the different types of buildings we have available, visit our homepage – you’ll find the perfect metal building for any project.
