Metal Garage Kits
These days, finding storage room for your vehicles, equipment, and essential possessions is more challenging than ever. It’s so hard, in fact, that it’s given way to a multi-billion-dollar commercial self-storage industry. But instead of wasting time and money on expensive monthly rental spaces, why not invest and purchase a metal garage? Steel garages are incredibly strong, adaptable, and built to last for years.
And one particular sub-type of metal garages is known as metal garage kits. These kits come with all the standard components you'd find in a traditional metal garage, with the only difference being that you install it yourself. Metal building kits are a fantastic option for those with a DIY spirit who love taking on a project and saving a little bit of money.
- Made from top-of-the-line American steel, tough and built to last.
- Completely customizable, perfect for your custom projects or storing cars.
- Available both in 14-gauge steel frames and 12-gauge steel frames.
- Insulation available to protect your metal garage for many years to come.

The Components of a Metal Garage Kit
When you purchase a metal garage kit, everything is handled except for the installation. As such, all the parts to these buildings will be included during delivery. To give you an idea of these components, we’ve detailed them below:
Steel framing is arguably one of the most important parts of your metal building. It makes up the skeleton of your structure and is responsible for withstanding high winds, heavy snow, and even seismic activity.
Roofing panels are just about as integral to the quality of your metal garage as the framing. These panels are pre-pressed and cut to size before delivery, ensuring that all you'll need to do is attach them.
Like roofing panels, wall paneling is responsible for transforming your structure from a simple carport-like building to a fully enclosed garage.
If you’ve ever spent time searching for the right bolt or screw, you’re not alone! And luckily, you won’t have that problem since metal garage kits include all the fastening hardware!
Anchors are the components that secure your building to the ground. The anchor system used for your structure will depend entirely on your chosen foundation.
Custom metal garages provide an unrivaled amount of customizability. And when you customize your structure, these customization options will be included in your metal garage delivery.
Metal Garage Kits for Any Need
Metal garage kits come in various styles, sizes, and footprints, allowing you to choose one that works specifically for your needs. So, let's take a look at just a few of these types.
One-Car Garage Kit
A one-car garage kit is a steel structure designed to comfortably protect a single small or medium-sized vehicle. They’re a great, affordable option that works well for single-car families.
Two-Car Garage Kits
Two-car garages are an excellent choice for housing two vehicles simultaneously. They even leave a bit of extra room left over for storage.
Three-Car Garage Kits
A three-car garage is an attractive solution for larger families that have multiple vehicles to protect. These resilient structures are designed to hold three cars while still having enough room to move around.
RV Garage Kits
Sometimes your vehicles are just too big for an ordinary garage. In those cases, an RV garage kit might be your answer. These buildings are taller, longer, and broader than standard garage sizes, giving you plenty of room to store your recreational vehicles, motorhomes, or buses.
After you’ve picked out a metal garage kit that works for your needs, you’ll want to choose the right roof type. These roofs come in a variety of options that vary in price and capability. They include:
• Regular Roof Garage Kits
A regular roof resembles your standard carport roof, with round corners and horizontal paneling. It’s a modern look that works well in most moderate climates.
• A-Frame Roof Garage Kits
An a-frame roof looks more like your traditional home roof, with overhanging awnings, a sharp roof peak, and horizontal panels.
• Vertical Roof Garage Kits
Vertical roofs are some of the strongest roof types, designed with vertically oriented paneling that allows debris to slide easily from your rooftop.
Metal Garage Kits Are Fully Customizable
When you purchase a metal garage kit, you'll be given access to unparalleled customizability. You can easily change almost every aspect of your building, allowing you to tailor it to your desires. To give you an idea of just how many customization options are available to you, we've detailed a few below:
You’ll be able to choose between more than 16 standard color options or a premium color like copper or crimson red. And it’s not just the paneling either! Easily change the trim, roofing, and more!
Since buildings aren’t a one-size-fits-all affair, you’ll want to pick a garage size that works for you. Luckily, you’ll be able to choose between a wide range of sizes, styles, and footprints to find the perfect one for your project!
Framing and Paneling Thickness
The industry standard for framing is 16 gauge, while paneling is 29 gauge. But areas of the US that regularly sees high winds and heavy snow accumulation may want to opt for thicker 12 and 26-gauge components. And with our customization options, you'll be able to do just that!
Every enclosed structure needs doors! And you'll be able to choose standard entryway doors or larger garage doors for vehicle storage. Why not both? You'll have carte blanche to add as many as you need!
Windows are a fantastic way to add extra natural light to your structure. And as it so happens, you can add as many as necessary!

Crucial Things to Consider When Buying a Metal Garage Kit
Before you break ground on a new metal garage, there are some critical questions you'll need to ask yourself. These include:
How will you use your metal garage?
Depending on how you plan to utilize your structure, you may need a different size or style for the job. Therefore, having a good understanding of your needs is the perfect place to start your metal building journey.
Are you storing more than just vehicles?
If you intend to store more than just the family car, you’ll want to carefully examine your storage needs to ensure you get the right size. After all, no one wants to invest in a metal garage kit only to realize it’s not large enough for the job!
Where are you installing your building?
Before you can begin construction on your metal garage, you'll want to choose a suitable location. This includes clearing and leveling your build site and ensuring it rests above natural water runoff.
What kind of weather does your area experience?
If you live in a region that experiences high winds, thunderstorms, hail, heavy snow, tornados, or even hurricanes, you’ll want to think carefully about where you install your building and the reinforcements you choose.
What customization options do I need?
If your building needs to suit a particular need, you’ll want to ensure that it’s customized accordingly.
Determining Steel Garage Prices
There are a lot of components and manpower that go into a metal garage. As such, gathering a quick quote on a building isn't always easy. Thanks to several variables, the price of your building can change. These include your building’s size, the customization options you choose, and even where in the US you call home.
Therefore, to get the best price on your new metal garage kit, you'll want to work closely with your building expert to determine the total cost of your structure.
