When you order a steel garage, there are so many possibilities that you can explore to achieve your desired looks and aesthetics. Read on to learn more about how to add colour when buying your steel garage building kit.
Which Garages Can Be Coloured?
At Toro, we offer both straight wall and arch wall garages. However, only the straight wall structures are available painted. Arch buildings come to you unpainted, but the Galvalume Plus™ coating on the metal makes an excellent primer should you wish to paint it on your own.
What Colours Can I Paint My Garage?
If you wish to purchase your garage painted, we have a variety of colours available. Our selection includes many neutral options to help your steel garage kit fit in with the surroundings and the other buildings on your property. We allow you to customize your wall, roof, and trim colours to create the perfect structure for your needs. We have a colour visualizer on our website to help you imagine your choices.
How the Right Metal Garage Colour Saves Money
Choosing the right colour for your garage kits will offer more benefits than just enhancing their curb appeal. Based on scientific research, exterior materials and colours play a crucial role in the structure’s energy efficiency. According to the basic principles of science, some materials and colours will absorb more of the sun’s energy than others. The energy from the sun will then be transformed into heat energy.
If you live in an area that is often warm and sunny, lighter colours will keep your energy bills lower. Conversely, a darker-coloured building is ideal for cloudy or cold areas, as they help lower your heating bills. Therefore, it is essential to consider your location and the local climate to help you choose the most energy-efficient colours.
Selecting Colours for You Steel Garage
Choosing the right colour for your steel garage can be quite a challenge, given the multiple colours and finishes available. However, the colour you choose plays a significant role in helping you achieve the desired aesthetics. When choosing, be sure to consider the following:
The Purpose of The Building
Whether your steel garage will be used for parking small vehicles, small campers, boats, or as a workspace for your DIY creations, selecting the right colour is essential. In addition, if you are building your garage close to other structures, you should pick a colour scheme that blends with the surrounding environment. If you are painting a commercial steel garage, do not be afraid of picking more daring colours or your brand colours, as the goal is to catch the attention of potential customers.
Since steel garages can be painted in many colours, determining the best trim and metal panel colour combination can be challenging. You should determine whether you want to contrast or match your trim and panel colours. You can choose dark-coloured garage kits trusts with light trim or vice versa. Contrasting colours will help you make a bold statement, but you can also select matching colours to create subtle beauty.
Consider the Neighbourhood
When choosing the colour of your metal garage, you need to pay attention to the unwritten aesthetic rules in your neighbourhood. Determine whether your new steel garage will be near your home or other buildings. If so, you need to know how to select colours that complement each other or contrast nicely. Your steel garage does not have to match the colour of your home. You can choose a red garage to fit your classic white farmhouse. Alternatively, if your building will be in a wooded setting, tones of green and tan will blend. The colour choices of your garage building kit should depend on your personal preferences yet also suit your neighbourhood.
