Whether you’re looking to store your car, gardening tools or even farm equipment, every home and business could benefit from a steel garage. They can be compact and practical, or large and spacious, and come in a range of styles to suit every budget.
If you’re looking to build a new garage, then a steel garage is probably exactly what you’ve been searching for. Steel buildings are becoming increasingly popular for their practicality and simplicity.
Garages are no different. Keep reading for five benefits that come with building a steel garage.
1. Long-Term Savings
If you purchase a metal-construction garage, you’ll save money.
It’s true that with a custom-built metal garage the initial, up-front costs may be higher than a traditional timber construction.
However, the longevity and durability of steel and the low maintenance costs means spending less money on your build than a timber garage. Add to that the lower insurance costs that steel buildings attract, and it’ll mean more money in your wallet, year after year.
2. Built to Last
A great benefit of steel construction is its amazing durability. As long as you periodically treat your new garage for rust, it’ll be good as new for years to come.
Painting a garage will aid its rust-resistance, but you’ll automatically gain other long-term benefits as well.
For example, using light colors or glass paint can cool down the inside of a steel building and protect the exterior at the same time.
3. Speedy Installation
Putting together your garage will be as easy as slotting together a puzzle. Each piece will have been designed from scratch to attach to each other, resulting in a brand new building on your property before you know it.
Many metal garages can be put up in less than 24 hours, though larger buildings may take a little longer to put together.
4. They’re Versatile
Traditionally, garages have been used to house cars and other vehicles, or as storage sheds or workshops. But today, you won’t believe all the ways you can put them to use.
You can convert them into offices, summer houses, and even guest rooms! The sturdy construction is versatile and lends itself to becoming whatever you want it to be.
5. They’re Kind to the Environment
Not only is steel made from recycled materials, but it can also be recycled itself, making it a very green metal. In fact, steel is the world’s most recycled material, with 86% of steel products being recycled in 2014.
Your steel construction had a previous life and can go on to have a different one years from now. So, you can be safe in the knowledge your garage is an eco-friendly building.
The Takeaway on Why Your Property Needs a Steel Garage
Steel garages are great for their low long-term costs, durability, and low maintenance. They’re easy and quick to put up, all with a low eco-footprint.
When making the decision between traditional garages and steel, keep these benefits in mind when making your choice.
