Property owners have three main goals when it comes to garages – creating more space, improving their vehicle’s security, and increasing their property value. These are precisely the aspects that prefab metal garage kits excel at.
Additionally, pre-engineered steel and metal garages are significantly greener alternatives to traditional building solutions, which is particularly important to today’s eco-conscious consumer. The peace of mind that comes from your cars, lawn equipment, and boats being sheltered in one reliable and versatile metal structure is worth every penny of your investment.
Uses of Eco-friendly Garages
The possibilities that metal garages offer are endless. A spacious, eco-friendly, and customizable garage provides ample room for whatever you need, including:
- Storing home décor and furnishings
- Creating a workshop or hobby shop
- Installing a home gym
- Designing a recreation room for downtime
- Constructing a home office
10 Reasons to Choose Prefab Steel & Metal Garage Kits
Environmentally Friendly Construction
Steel is the most recycled material in the world and the leading option for environmentally friendly construction. Regardless of how many times steel is recycled, it never loses any of its incredible strength. As people pay more attention to their carbon footprint, steel and metal garages are the most eco-conscious choice.
Lower Energy Use
When properly insulated, metal garages use significantly less energy for heating and cooling than traditional building solutions. In contrast to wood-framed garages, prefab steel garage kits create a tighter structural envelope that remains secure. Drafts and air leakages are a common problem lumber-framed garages experience, but the window and door options available with metal garages shut tightly, further reducing heating and cooling costs.
Premium eco-friendly metal garages offer options and benefits that further enhance their energy efficiency, including:
- Insulated personal and overhead doors
- Reflective steel roofing panels
- Fasteners with washers resistant to UV damage, ensuring they create a tighter hold
A clear span steel garage building has no interior load-bearing walls or columns to interfere with the interior layout. This allows you to divide and customize the space in any way that works best for you. You have complete freedom to design your floor plan in a way that best suits you. You are able to select one of the colour options available for our straight wall buildings or paint the garage to complement your property.
Convenient and Quick Construction
Prefab metal garage kits arrive at your site precut, welded, machined, drilled, and clearly marked. This makes smaller, basic models simple and easy to erect by following the provided plans and instructions. Every fastener used for the structure is the same, meaning you don’t have to worry about selecting the wrong piece or spend time sorting them. Each part in the kit is quality controlled to be of the exact specifications so that assembly can be quick and seamless.
It is difficult to predict the future. Naturally, your needs as a garage owner will evolve over time, meaning the garage will need to meet new requirements. Fortunately, metal garages allow you to enjoy the same versatility you experienced when defining the building space initially. For arch-style buildings, add additional arches to increase the length. Straight wall buildings can be expanded in either direction.
Prefab metal garage kits are one of the most economical ways to build any low-rise structure. The superior strength offered by steel means that you require far fewer framing pieces to create an even safer and stronger building than traditional options.
The fire-resistant qualities of a commercial-grade steel building allow you to reap big discounts in insurance premiums. Additionally, faster construction saves on labour costs.
Pre-engineered metal garages and storage buildings have been shown to outlast other building solutions by decades. The sturdy design and reliability of materials mean that the structure can handle continued use and withstand seismic events, fire, and weather such as hail, storms and snow. This guarantees that the garage continues to provide protection to your valuables over its lifetime.
Easy Care & Maintenance
The ease of care and maintenance of metal garages is a leading factor in why they are so popular. Steel and metal buildings are impervious to wood ants and termites, which saves you the hassle and cost of chemical insecticides. Additionally, steel doesn’t bow, twist, rot, split, or creep like wood-framed buildings.
Higher Resale Value
Every modification you do to your property either increases or lowers its value. A metal garage is a worthwhile investment with a significant positive return. When it comes time to sell, a well-constructed metal garage significantly increases the value of your property. Not only do you recoup your initial investment, but you also enjoy profit from it.
