Top Reasons To Invest In A Steel Garage

The following is a guest blog post:

The garages of today are far different, and far more improved, over the ones in previous years.

Once such difference is size. Previously, garages were meant to only hold a single car on some tools. Now, they can hold multiple cars in addition to other vehicles such as motorcycles, ATV’s, and so on.

In this day and age, steel garages are quickly becoming one of the top choices for home owners when they need to install a new garage on their property. But what makes steel garages such a wise investment? Let’s find out.

Here are the top reasons to invest in a steel garage:

They Are Affordable

Most people don’t think about this, but steel garages are indeed affordable, not just for the short term but for the long term as well. The reason for this is because most metal garages are pre-fabricated, so you will save a significant amount of money on the cost of materials and labor.

Furthermore, metal garages are affordable because they are not as expensive to maintain. The finish on a metal garage will last you much longer than a wooden one, and you can also secure warranties that will last you for up to four decades.

In fact, the cost of having your metal garage should be the only money you have to put into it for a long time.

They Are Extremely Durable

This is the primary reason why people choose to invest in a metal garage: they are attracted to the durability and perceived indestructibility of it. Now are steel garages truly indestructible? No, but the lightweight steels of today are still highly durable and withstand the weather well.

Metal buildings in general today are designed to withstand anything from torrential downpours of rain to high winds to furious storms to lots of snow. Assuming that you get the right coating, they are incredibly resistant to moisture and the typical enemies of wooden garages, such as pests like rodents and insects.

If you are going to be storing any highly valuable possessions in your garage, such as motorcycles or an expensive sports car, you’ll have firm peace of mind knowing they will be much better protected in a metal garage than a steel one.

They Are Incredibly Simple To Build

Last but not least, metal garages are incredibly simple to build and the overall construction process will not take long. Again, this is because they are pre-engineered. All you really have to do is select the garage you want, order it, and then have it installed by a licensed professional contractor.

Wooden garages take much longer to build, which increases the cost of materials and labor, and since they also don’t withstand to poor weather conditions as well either, there is honestly little reason why you should choose a wooden garage over a steel one.

Investing In A Steel Garage

Steel garages and buildings in general offer you may distinct advantages over their counterparts, with the three advantages we have gone over in this article being the top reasons why you should invest in them.

  1. I bought my first house last year and it already came with a steel garage door and I can attest to the affordability in maintaining the door. A handyman came out to my house for an unrelated matter and noticed that my garage door was missing a rod that would stabilize it when it goes up and down. There was always kind of a crookedness to the door when it opens and closes, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it. After a $60 (labor and materials included) installation, the door goes up and down smoothly now. Admittedly, I have nothing to compare it to because it’s my first house, but I mainly agree with the points raised in this post.

    • Hi DP,

      All I know about steel garage doors is that my parents home of almost 40 years has a steel garage door that was installed well before they purchased their home and while it’s not shiny and pretty it does work perfectly and is all in one piece. It’s a great testament to the longevity of the product. Thank you for commenting.
