Metal Sheds and Metal Carports
There are so many different options out there when you are trying to provide shelter for all of your toys. For some of us the fact that we have too much stuff is a basic reality. Where do we put it all! Well we can go and rent a storage unit at about $ 80 per month which is about $ 1000 per year. I think a better solution is to put up a metal garage or metal barn kit. These kits are very nice and well built. They are a far cry from what was on the market just a few short years ago. They are built by local companies and installed either by yourself (if you are handy) or by a licensed contractor. A lot of companies that sell the kits will also include installation as part of the cost. This make these structures very affordable.
The options that are available when ordering these kits is almost too many to count. You can pick just about any color that you want along with a multitude of design options. There are many different styles that are available to choose from. You don’t have to just settle on a box. We are starting to see that they have other options like different types of roof lines and dormer options. These metal sheds and barns are a safe and cost effective way to avoid the cost of building a stick framed structure.
Metal Carports vs. Stick Frame
While stick frame carports are very nice and really do look nicer they can also be much more expensive. When you compare the costs of the two it is hard to imagine that you wouldn’t want to go with the ease and savings that comes along with a metal carport kit. The carport kits much like the garage and barn kits come in an assortment of different options. There are many different color options and roof designs. You can even get carports that fit multiple vehicles. I recently even saw one that fit 2 cars and a small RV.
Another amazing feature with the metal carports is the fact that you can take them with you if you move to a new home. They aren’t a permanent structure that has to stay with the property. They have the option of being taken apart and then put back together once you arrive at your new home. This gives you another way to save when you go with a metal carport kit. These kits are very easy to put together with some of them only taking a few hours to construct.
This allows event he most novice of homeowners the ability to put them together and save even more money. When choosing a carport it is a great idea to do your homework. There are a ton of different manufactures all with their own level of quality. You will want someone that manufactures their steel here in the USA. I wouldn’t go with a company that brings their material in from another country. First it won’t be the best of quality and it will also be hard to get replacement parts for it.
