When investing in a storage solution, you want to know you’re getting value for money and a durable structure. While many garage materials are available, steel is renowned for its strength, versatility, and cost-effective nature.
Both businesses and households can benefit from using a steel garage, and as one of the UK’s premier suppliers of storage buildings, we rate steel as one of the best options for your garage.
Metal is a fire-resistant material, which automatically makes it a popular option. Other materials such as wood don’t have fire-resistant qualities, but you can rest assured that both steel sheds and garages will protect your garden equipment and other items.
Nobody wants to spend money on a garage, only to find they need to replace it a couple of years down the line. All metals have durable qualities, but steel is in a league of its own. It has a higher tensile strength rating than other building materials and can withstand harsh weather conditions.
Living in the UK means you have to think about a garage that protects your belongings and stays strong during the colder seasons. We always recommend steel buildings because we know from experience that they last for a long time.
The two main degradation factors of any structure are corrosion and rust. As steel is resistant to both, you can guarantee that your garage will be a solid investment.
It’s more important now than ever to protect the environment, and small steps can make a significant impact on your carbon footprint. Steel is one of the best insulators, which means it can maintain a comfortable temperature in both summer and winter.
If you like working in your garage, you won’t need a heater or air conditioner, so steel can also reduce your utility bills and help you to become more energy efficient.
Metal buildings are incredibly flexible, and you can customise them to fit your needs. For example, if you use your garage for a car collection and want to extend it to fit more models, it’s easy – and cheap – to do.
The evolution of manufacturing technology also means you can select the colour, shape and finish that suits your preferences. Steel offers a great deal of aesthetic appeal, and it can fit seamlessly into your garden or stand out with a bold, colourful statement.
