The beauty of a steel structure is its versatility and adaptability. If you need an open-air roofed structure with open accessibility on any side, we can do that at Metal Garage Central. If you need an enclosed structure with more protection and security, we’ve got you covered. Or maybe you want to meet in the middle with a partially-enclosed building – we can do that, too! If you don’t need (or want) a fully-enclosed metal building, but would like to add some enclosure for added protection from the elements … keep reading. When it comes to options for designing and customizing a partially-enclosed structure, the sky’s the limit with Metal Garage Central!
Partially-Enclosed Steel Building Advantages
Partially-enclosed metal carports, garages, sheds, and storage buildings offer more substantial protection while still allowing for ample ventilation. A typical way to achieve this is to enclose two sides of the structure, while leaving two sides open. Alternatively, some customers choose to add a third wall, and just leave one side open. Another advantage to a partially-enclosed structure is that since it requires less metal sheeting than a fully-enclosed structure, the price tag can end up being a little lower, too.
A key advantage to a partially-enclosed carport over a fully-enclosed carport is the fact that it offers significant protection from the elements while also allowing for free-moving air. Many customers also like the convenience of being able to pull right in and out of partially-enclosed carports without having to fool with any cumbersome garage doors. These partially-enclosed carports are easy to expand as your needs grow, and they’re also simple to convert to a fully-enclosed structure at some point in the future, if you so choose. Whatever you need from a partially-enclosed building, Metal Garage Central can help you design and install the perfect solution!
Roof Styles and Designs
The roof style you choose for your custom partially-enclosed metal building makes a big difference in its functionality, and roof style also has a significant impact on the final price tag. It’s important to consider the weather in your area when choosing a roof for your steel structure.
If you live in an area that experiences heavy rain or snowfall, it is recommended that you go with a vertical roof style.
The boxed eave roof style has a peak like the vertical style, except the panels are installed horizontally. For this reason, we recommend choosing a boxed eave roof style if you live in an area that doesn't experience a lot of snow or heavy rainfall.
The regular roof style is the most economical choice. However, because installation of a regular roof involves the roof panels being horizontal, it’s only recommended that you purchase this style if you live in an area that has very little snowfall or heavy rain.
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!
