Lean-to garages are typically designed as garage buildings with one or more lean-to extensions added on the side. They are a great, cost-effective way to create both enclosed and open-air storage space for a multitude of needs and applications. The main garage building comes with a choice of roof style options including regular roof, boxed eave roof, or vertical roof, while the lean-to comes with a simple slope roof that allows rain and snow to slide off easily to one side.
Uses of a Lean-To Garage
One of the first things you need to decide when choosing a lean-to metal garage is how you want to use your garage with lean-to. There’s honestly not much you CAN’T do with one of these combination structures! Here are just a few of the ways we’ve seen customers use these metal garages:
Parking garages for a variety of vehicles
Storage sheds for mowers, outdoor equipment, firewood, hay, and much more
Personal gym space
Man Caves and She Sheds
Pool houses with outdoor showers
Cafes and coffee shops
Space for parties and entertaining
Sports field houses and concession stands
And so much more!

Advantages of Custom Steel Structures
Steel structures are superior to stick-builds or those made from other materials for reasons beyond the competitive purchase price, too:
Metal is easier to clean and requires less maintenance than stick-builds or other structures. And since the color is infused into the metal, you don’t have the same peeling or fading paint issues, either.
Steel buildings don’t rot like wood and can stand up to constant use and extreme weather, including high winds, heavy rains, accumulating snow, lightning … and even earthquakes! The metal paneling can also be coated with aluminum compounds to help further prevent rusting and prolong the life of the panels.
Pest and Fire Resistant–
Steel isn’t susceptible to termites or other pests, and doesn’t harbor mold or mildew. Steel is also incredibly fire resistant.
The versatility of steel allows for more complex architectural designs and more clear-span interior space. It’s easier to expand metal buildings as your space needs grow, too.
Less Expensive to Insure–
Thanks to superior strength, durability, and fire resistance, your insurance costs may decrease if you choose a steel building over other options. That’s another cost benefit you get by choosing a structure from Metal Garage Central!
