One car metal garages work well for the single family vehicle homes. They are smaller in size and have plenty of space for housing pretty much anything you need. Two or Three car homes have options for our Two Car Metal Garages and Three Car Garages as well. Many often go with with a  two or three car steel garage so they can use the additional space for other storage needs.

Side Entry Metal Garage

The other of steel garages is the choice to have side entry metal garage doors. These side entry metal garage doors really are a convenience as you don’t have to open your garage door every time for utilizing the interior space. It also adds a great look to the overall style of the steel garage. This is a great feature to have especially if the metal garage is going to be heated, as it prevents the heat from escaping in a large open area that would occur when using the main doors.

Metal garage buildings provide an array of benefits.  Specific wants and needs are identified with our design team so the right choice can be made from the different types of buildings we offer. For example, some people find that having a side entry metal garage is an important option for them.

First consideration that comes to buying steel garages, is deciding on the size that is required. This will be determined by the amount of space that is available for construction and importantly will based on the final version of metal garage you move forward with. As an example, you may choose a 12 or 21 foot wide building.  Maybe you are looking for a larger building like a triple wide such as a 26 to 30 foot wide. There are huge variations in sizes and why it’s important that considering these you have a clear idea as to what they are going to use it for.  Understanding these different sizes offers a lot of flexibility.

Metal Roof Types for Steel Garages

Metal roof types can range. If you are planning on just looking at the classic roof style, you would then choose a regular roof with garages options. The standard steel garages version regular roof is the most economical, and attractive looking with its top to bottom curved ridges.

If your preference is an “A frame” (boxed eave) roof there are many metal garages options available including this style of roof.  They come with the horizontal ridges and are very impressive in their looks.

A steel garage may demand the consideration for the environment that it is going to be constructed in. If you are dealing with heavy snow and rain then your best choice for roofing would be the vertical roof style.   It has  vertical ridges and uses the A frame structure.
