Lean-To Storage Sheds
Lean-to sheds are a great way to add storage space when you have limited space to work with. Lean-tos are often attached to an existing structure, creating additional exterior covered space. If you need an open-air roofed structure with open accessibility, we can do that for you at Metal Garage Central. If you’d like to have your lean-to enclosed or partially-enclosed for more protection and security, we can do that too!
Lean-To Roofs vs Other Roof Styles
Lean-to roofs are the simplest type of pitched roof. A lean-to roof is defined as a single slope roof, with the upper edge usually adjoining a wall or existing building. Lean-to roofs are the most common roofs for basic shelters, and they are the cheapest alternative for covering a structure.
Why Choose a Lean-To Storage Building?
Lean-to metal storage buildings are perfect for putting up next to an existing building, and can often be made to look like a natural extension of your building. The single slope roof allows rain and snow to slide off to one side very efficiently. Adding a lean-to to an existing building is a simple, cost-effective option for creating more storage space.
At Metal Garage Central, we can also custom-build many varieties of stand-alone lean-to combination buildings to suit your needs. Some of the many options available include open lean-to carports, a barn with lean-to extensions on either or both sides, and a garage with lean-to extensions on either or both sides. The center portions of these custom buildings can be enclosed with the lean-tos left open, or conversely we can enclose the lean-tos and leave the center building open. Our lean-to metal storage buildings are incredibly flexible and versatile in their design, and are fully customizable.

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!
