Where can I put all of this stuff?
If you’re a homeowner, then you’ve got stuff. And if you’re like most Americans, then you likely have more stuff than you know what to do with. Looking for a good backyard storage solution? There are plenty of storage sheds and storage buildings available, but metal utility buildings are really better solutions.
In a metal utility storage building, of course!
If you’re searching for utility carports or utility garages, there’s no better place to get one than Metal Barn Central. But it might be helpful to first define what a utility building actually is. Back in the day, folks used the phrase utility building to describe pretty much any backyard storage shed. Utility sheds have been popular collecting places for lawn mowers, tools, and other random backyard items for generations.
But a modern metal utility building is much more than just some old shed. A well-designed, custom-engineered steel utility building is much stronger, much tougher, and offers lots more in terms of multipurpose application possibilities.
Benefits of investing in a metal storage utility building
What makes a steel utility building a better building? Plenty! Here are just a few points worth noting:
A utility building made with steel is essentially impervious to moisture and won’t rot like wood. Steel construction provides better all-around weather protection too, including sun, rain, snow, wind, and even lightning.
Pest-resistant and fire-resistant
Termites aren’t attracted to steel, and pests really can’t hurt it. Steel plays a poor host for mold and mildew, too. Concerned about potential fire threats? Steel doesn’t burn, either.
⇒ Completely customizable
Metal utility buildings offer more flexibility of design than other comparable structures and also deliver more in the way of usable interior space. Steel structures are also simpler to adapt or expand as your needs change over time.
⇒ Easier to clean and maintain
A wood storage building will require painting or staining every few years. But the infused colors of steel utility buildings don’t peel, and they won’t fade nearly as quickly. And cleaning a metal utility building is a cinch. Just hose it off and hose it out, and you’re good to go!
Things to consider when designing your custom metal utility building
When you choose to partner with Metal Barn Central, you can customize every aspect of your building. We’ll help you draw up a perfect utility building solution to meet your needs, including structural dimensions, specific gauges of metal framing and paneling, colors, trim, doors & windows, and more.
⇒ Building size & design
Choose whatever design you prefer for your utility storage building. Want to add an open-air, lean-to shelter? No problem. How big of a building do you want and need? You get to decide.
⇒ Steel gauge options
14-gauge is a common industry standard for framing, but you can also opt for a more sturdy 12-gauge if you like. You get to choose the gauges of your metal roofing and side paneling, as well.
⇒ Multiple options for building enclosure
How much side paneling would you like to have on your building, and where do you want it? It’s up to you. You can go with a fully-enclosed building, an open-air shelter, or a combination of the two. Whatever will serve your needs better, Metal Barn Central is here to provide!
⇒ Door, window, and building access options
If you decide to enclose all or part of your building, you’ll need to include some convenient points of access as well. Choose from our selection of roll-up doors, walk-in doors, windows, and frame-out options. It’s also up to you where these items are placed on your building, too.
⇒ Trim and color choices
Want to place decorative gables in the front and back? We can do that. Want to add some decorative J-trim to cover any exposed edges? We do that, too. What about your color options? Metal Barn Central offers a nice selection of colors for the roof, side paneling, and trim; you can even choose a tasteful two-tone wainscot look, if that’s what you like.
