Do you no longer have space you need for your home or business, but you want to stay in your current location? Well, we have just the solution for you here at Metal Garage Central.
Metal building add-ons are an easy, yet affordable, way to expand your home, business, or office. Between their durability, reliability, longevity, and little required maintenance, these additions are an option you can count on for years to come.
What Are the Reasons for Expanding a Metal Building?
Just like the reasons for investing in a prefab steel building, your reasons for expanding are also uniquely your own. Here at Metal Garage Central, we highly respect that. Several people opt to add onto their structure because their current needs are no longer being met, but there are several other reasons for someone to expand their metal structure.
Take a look below for some of the most common expansion reasons:
- Adding more employees to the business.
- In need of more storage space.
- Expanding the family business.
- Opening a bigger office for your company.
- Adding a guest house to your property.
Ways to Expand Your Prefab Metal Building
We understand that every customer has their own reasons for expanding their current steel building, which is why we offer a variety of ways to make it happen! All our buildings are made with high-quality steel components, allowing them to adapt to your ever-changing needs. You can find a list of ways you can add onto your structure below:
End Walls– One of the most common ways to expand your structure is to have a side or end wall removed and add on the addition there. If your unit does not have end walls or side walls, it simply makes the process that much easier! However, if you choose to expand from the end walls, you must have a vertical style roof to avoid future leaks.
Side-By-Side – For side-by-side attachments, we prefer for the existing structure to be our own, but there are exceptions to this. A new metal building can be attached to the side of an existing unit, creating a larger structure. For more information about the attachment of a new unit, you can contact your building specialist at (980) 321-9898.
Second Story – We do not offer second-story additions here at Metal Garage Central, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If planned properly and engineered with the correct materials, you can easily add a second story to your prefab metal building.
Extend the Roof – In order to extend the roof, you will need to have uprights. You can also choose to have an extended overhang rather than an extended roof; however, you will need to contact your building specialist about the limits to longer overhangs.
Lean-tos – One of the easiest and most common ways to add storage space to your existing structure for a price you can afford is by having a lean-to attached to one or both sides. Lean-tos can be both open and fully enclosed, depending on your needs.
What to Know Before You Expand?
Before you expand, there are a couple of things you need to take into consideration, like location, land, and local considerations.
Here’s why the “three L’s” are so important:
Location – Before you decide to expand your metal building, you need to determine whether your current location is ideal. If you are unhappy with the traffic, distance from amenities, or neighborhood, it would be unwise to purchase a metal building addition. If you are happy with the location, you’re good to go!
Land – You also need to consider more concrete factors, such as the availability of land. Do you own enough land for the extension? Can you buy the land you need? If the answer to those questions is no, the steel building additions we offer aren’t your best option. However, if you do have the land you would need, then a metal building expansion will be a piece of cake!
Local Considerations – Do you remember getting building permits and checking with your local zoning and planning commission before you built your initial metal structure? You need to do the same thing before you extend your current metal building. Your HOA or local government may have certain restrictions or requirements for any extensions.
Do You Remember the Benefits of Metal Buildings?
Since you already have a metal building that you’re looking to expand, then you already know how great metal buildings can be. But that doesn’t mean a reminder wouldn’t do you some good!
All of the metal structures we provide are designed to last a lifetime and withstand any and everything Mother Nature throws their way—they’re just that durable. Not only that, they’re budget-friendly. Steel is relatively inexpensive while still being one of the best materials around. It also lends itself well to customization. We offer a myriad of color options, roof designs, and dimension possibilities. Of course, we can’t forget their fire and pest resistance, as well as their resistance to mold and mildew. Since all these factors apply to our metal buildings, they apply to our metal building additions, too!
