Steel Storage BuildingReasons a Metal Storage Building is Better Than A Wooden Building

Wooden structures tend to be overall more expensive to build from start to finish. Along with the increased cost, they also require frequent maintenance and inspection to be sure they are still in the best condition. This additional maintenance adds significantly to the lifetime cost of a wooden building. For this and many other reasons, metal is the winner when it comes to a material to build with.

Why a Metal Storage Building is a Better Choice Than a Wooden Structure


Toro manufactures and designs metal buildings that are available in a variety of colours and designs that work to complement other structures as well as enhance property values.


You may be able to purchase a metal storage building for the same price as a smaller wooden structure. This is often due to the fact that metal kits come with prefabricated pieces, allowing it to be put together easily. This helps to reduce the expenses for materials as well as labour. A metal structure comes in a variety of styles, meaning you will be able to choose the design, size and shape that best suits your needs.

Different Prefabricated & Pre-Engineered Steel Building Kits Available

Depending on your needs, there are several types of prefabricated kits available . They can be designed one level structures with single door and window openings right up to large commercial multiple story buildings with many bays.


Metal structures are resistant to corrosion, fire and pests. This can include termites, rodents, fungus and woodworm. They are also strong in a variety of weather conditions, meaning they won’t distort their shape or warp in the heat or cold.

Easy to Install

Metal storage building kits arrive with every piece ready to install. They do not need any additional cuts or welds, making them simple to put together.


There are many components of a metal building that can be made from both pre and post-consumer recycled products. Along with this, the majority of the parts of a completed metal structure can be recycled once the building is no longer needed, providing a green and sustainable option.


Metal storage structures require very little maintenance to remain in good condition and protect your contents, allowing you to store your belongings in a hassle-free way.


A metal storage building has reinforced parts like hinges and also concealed areas to place padlocks to help deter theft and forced entry. This makes them valuable for storing items such as tools, machinery and recreational vehicles.
