Metal buildings – Protect Your Car with a Carport or Garage!

Imagine, you buy the vehicle of your dreams and you drive it home. You park your car in the driveway with the anticipation of driving it to work the next day. However, the next morning, you discover bird droppings all over your new car! You’ve always loved polka dots, but this is not the way to go. Of course, you could wipe off the droppings but you’re in a hurry to get to work on time. Besides, you shouldn’t have to clean your car every day. Now, start that same scenario over. You’ve just purchased a new car and you store it in a carport or garage. The next morning, you greet your beautiful car and drive to work. No bird issues, no scraping, no peeling paint, and no worrying. Thanks to beautiful metal buildings you’re good to go!

Besides your house, your car is probably one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. Do you prefer a shiny new ride or a well-cared-for pre-owned vehicle? Either way, you’ll want to take the best possible care of your set of wheels. However, taking good care of your vehicle means more than just car maintenance and washes. In addition to all that, you’ll also want to ensure your vehicle has protection from the elements. However, don’t just protect your vehicle. Do it with a carport or garage that’s as attractive as your ride.

Metal Buildings Protect Your Car’s Paint

In addition to bird droppings, the elements can also be harmful to your vehicle. While small amounts of Mother Nature won’t cause serious damage, continues exposure could. That’s why metal buildings are so important to have for your car. The most harmful elements are rain, snow, hail, and pollen. Acid rain leaves watermarks that can tarnish your car’s shiny exterior and paint job. In addition, snow can have a similar effect if left uncleaned. When it melts, all that water remains on your car eating away at the paint. Another problem is hail. While small chunks won’t make a dent, bigger chunks could potentially be very harmful. Lastly, don’t forget about pollen. Pollen has such a high acidity that just a single grain can erode paint. Just imagine what an entire season of pollen would do.


Affordable and durable, many people prefer carports over garages as they get the job done cheaper. Plus, they’re ideal for storing campers, RVs, tractors, loaders, popups, and boats. Carports provide a protecting roof, shielding from rain, snow, ice or hail. Moreover, they’re convenient. Tired of dealing with garage door openers? A carport lets you park and go. Need extra space? No problem! Carports are available in single, double, or in triple widths! So, you’ll have plenty of room for all your gear! They also require very little maintenance. Thus, you can store and go! Lastly, carports are easy to relocate. Therefore, if you ever decided to move, take your favorite carport with you!


Do you want the best possible form of protection for your vehicle? If so, then a steel garage is for you. Like a carport, garages are available in many sizes. However, unlike a carport, a garage has siding and a door. So, your vehicles will have full protection from the outside. Additionally, steel garages are durable and capable of withstanding strong winds, snow, ice, and even hail. Since you can lock the door, you have the added feature of security. Furthermore, they require very little maintenance. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could store your valuables inside and never have to worry about them again? Well, a steel garage gives you the freedom to do just that!

Customizable Metal Buildings

Perhaps the best thing about metal buildings is that they are completely customizable. Meaning, they’re available in many different sizes and colors. You also choose if and where you want to add doors or windows. Choose a plain and simple design or something a little fancier. The possibilities are endless!

Boost Your Curb Appeal and Resale Value

Before you do any kind of home improvement, it’s always good to ask, “Will this increase my home’s value?” The answer is yes! Garages and carports are likely to increase both your home’s value and its curb appeal. Basically, your garage or carport is an extension of your house as it provides extra space for vehicles and equipment. How much the value increases depends on the amount you invest in the project. Therefore, the more your garage or carport costs the more it will boost your home’s value.
