Unique Uses for Metal Storage Buildings
If you don’t have a riding mower, gardening tools, or need extra storage space, then you probably don’t need an outside storage building, right? Wrong! Believe it or not, our metal buildings are made for more than just storage. Our buildings are designed to be versatile, so you can use your imagination to customize your storage building to meet your exact needs. Here are some unique ways you can use our steel buildings:
Playhouse for the kids – Like kids? Have kids of your own? Our steel storage buildings can be a restaurant, theater, kitchen, or anything else that your little ones dream up.
Studio space – Are you an artist and need a dedicated place to paint? Are you into pottery? Or maybe you need a space away from the house to host music lessons? A shed can be the perfect area for your own personal studio.
Office space – Do you work from home or work for yourself? A storage building can be put in your backyard for a quiet and private escape from your house so you can get some work done.
Barbershop or Salon – Our prefab storage buildings can even be used for your barbershop or salon space. If you love doing hair, let one of our storage buildings inspire you to open your own business.
Bakery – Use a storage shed for your bakery. This area is a perfect spot for a commercial kitchen.
Our Storage Buildings Have Three Roof Options
Metal Garage Central gives you options when customizing your building – this includes choosing your roof style. Our prefab metal storage buildings can be designed with three roof styles – a regular roof, an A-frame horizontal roof, or a vertical roof.
Regular Roof – A regular roof is the most popular style, and it is also the most economical. A regular roof features rounded curves and horizontally oriented paneling.
A-Frame Horizontal – An A-frame roof is a popular choice among homeowners because it resembles the look of the roof of a traditional home. Like regular roofs, A-frame roofs also have horizontal paneling, but it is built a litter sturdier.
Vertical Roof – Vertical roofs are the sturdiest option. They come on a sturdy A-frame and are engineered to include more structural reinforcements. Another unique feature is the vertical paneling. This design allows rain, snow, and debris to fall off your roof more efficiently.
Design Your Perfect Metal Storage Building
Roof options aren’t the only thing you get to customize. You can design the rest of your building too, however you want! You choose the exact size, steel gauges, colors, and more.
Choose Your Size – The size of your building is completely up to you. Choose your size dimensions to accommodate everything you need.
Roof Styles – Choose your preferred roofing style – a regular roof (a popular and economical option), an A-frame horizontal roof (a studier option), or a vertical roof (the premium option).
Doors & Windows – Want to enclose your building? Then you’ll need to decide on your doors. You can choose among frame outs, garage-style doors, and walk-in doors. Don’t forget about windows to let natural light in.
Framing and Panels – 14-gauge is common framing that’s used for steel storage buildings, but we offer thicker 12-guage steel. You can also select between 26-gauge and 29-gauge galvanized steel for your roof panels.
Anchors – Decide how to anchor your building to the ground. We offer four types of anchors:
Rebar anchors are good for areas with solid soil and low winds.
Mobile home anchors are great if you are putting your building on solid ground.
Concrete anchors are designed for smooth concrete surfaces.
Asphalt anchors are specially designed for asphalt.
Certifications – We offer certification options to meet your safety standards.
Trim and Colors – Use decorative gables in the front or back of your structure or add J-trim to cover the panel edges. You can even choose your colors.

Easy Installation – Our prefab metal storage buildings are easy to install. Our crews will get your building up, usually in just a matter of hours. And if you decide to buy one of our storage building kits, everything will be pre-cut for easy installation.
Maintenance Free – With a metal storage building, you’ll have much less maintenance. The occasional hosing down is all you will have to do to keep your building in the best shape!
Cheaper Option – Metal buildings are more durable and cheaper than wooden construction. For the same price as a wooden shed, you can get a metal building that’s even larger and won’t take as long to put up.
Unmatched Durability – Steel storage buildings may be lighter, but they are incredibly solid. Metal isn’t easy to damage, which provides long-lasting protection for your belongings.
Fire Hazard-Free – You can rest easy knowing that your items will remain safe at all times in your steel storage building. Wooden sheds can easily burn down, but metal is fire-retardant and will need extremely high temperatures in order to meltdown.

Preparation Before Installation
Before you decide on your perfect storage solution, make sure you’re ready for your building to be installed, so you don’t have any issues. A properly prepped site is critical for a strong foundation for your building. You’ll also have to make sure you are compliant with your local building codes. Here are the steps to take:
Building Permits – Before installing your building, you’ll want to check to make sure you don’t need a building permit. If you don’t make sure that your building is compliant with local, state, and federal building codes, then this could lead to a costly mistake. You could be forced to pay a heavy fine, or you could be forced to tear down your structure.
Site Preparation – Once you’ve selected your site for your building, then preparation will be key for an easy installation process. Be sure to remove any trees, shrubs, large rocks, and debris from your site. And make sure the area is level and ready for installation.
