Metal Garages

Whether you are looking to store a new automobile, a classic hot-rod, a motorcycle, boat, personal watercraft, fifth-wheel, or full-size motor-home, metal garages from Buck Steel offer the perfect storage solution to protect your investment from both mother-nature and theft.
 
Metal garages are also the perfect solution for woodworking, metalworking, and automobile enthusiasts who benefit from both the clearspan nature of metal garages, as well as the extra usable height that a commercial pre-engineered garage provides.
 
A metal garage is a cost-effective way to protect your investment, while at the same time being virtually maintenance free; leaving you more time for you to enjoy your toys and hobbies.
 

Commercial Quality with Residential Looks

The popularity of metal garages is increasing all the time and if you are considering a metal garage kit for use on the same property as your home, we understand that looks matter. Your metal building doesn't have to look like a commercial warehouse in your backyard!

There are a large number of options available to help make our garages look more appropriate in a residential setting: standing seam roof options, roof pitches of 4:12 and higher, siding options including: cement board - wood clapboards - and stucco, roof extensions, and wainscoting - just to name a few.
 
For the ultimate in a residential-looking garage, sectional doors, entry doors, and windows can be purchased locally from home improvement chains and installed into framed openings provided by Buck Steel.
 
The possibilities are endless when looking to create a unique design and Buck Steel can guide you through the available options to find a mix that both delivers the desired look, while at the same time, meeting your project budget!
 

Our Steel Garages Look Good for Less and Weather the Elements

When comparing metal garages to structures made from wood, block, or brick, a steel garage from Buck Steel will likely cost a lot less.
 
Don't forget to consider the cost of maintenance over time, when comparing the price of a garage to traditional construction methods. Metal garages require very little in the way of regular maintenance and are not affected by rot from water infiltration, inevitable deterioration of wood posts placed in/on concrete, or damage as a result of insects and rodents as wood-framed buildings are.

Our Metal Garages are Commercial-Grade

Our garage kits are not the typical light-gauge, tubular steel, wood framed-metal sheeted, lower-end, structures often sold to residential users.
 
Steel garages from Buck Steel are high-quality, commercial-grade, red-iron steel structures:
 26GA PBR roof panels come in Galvalume as well as a wide variety of colors. 24GA PBR roof panels are available as well as standing seam roof options.
 
 26GA PBR wall panels have a soliconized polyester finish which can withstand decades of exposure to the harshest of climates.
 
 The PBR panel used for both roof and walls has a minimum 70ksi tensile strength with an extra long leg to help provide a solid leak-proof seal
 
 Mainframes, vertical columns, and rafters are constructed from 1/4'' plate steel to form "H" or "I" beams
 
 Base and connection plates pre-welded and punched for easy assembly
 
 Clips used to secure purlins and girts are either pre-welded or bolted to the frame resulting in a structurally sound connection
 
 Each individual component is pre-cut, pre-drilled, and numbered/identified for easy identification during assembly
 
 The die-formed ridge cap has the same profile as the PBR roof panel - which provides for a very tight seal from the elements
 
 All connection bolts are A-325 or stronger and zinc plated for maximum strength
 
 Sheeting screws are self-drilling, long life fasteners with pre-applied neoprene washers to help provide a weather-tight seal. When applicable, the heads of sheeting fasteners are color-matched to the wall/roof panel color.
 
 A closed cell, high density foam closure strip on the base, eave and rake are the most effective in providing a weather-tight seal

Frequently Asked Metal Garage Questions

What is the total cost of a metal garage project?
Metal garage prices, sales, and specials are easily found on the internet. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the cost of the materials is only a portion of the total project cost. In fact, for many projects, the cost of the metal garage itself, is the smallest cost associated with the project.
metal-garage-cost

What kind of foundation is needed for a metal garage?
Commercial-grade, red-iron, steel buildings require large piers to be poured under each of the columns of the building. The size of the piers and other specifics regarding the foundation are determined by a licensed structural engineer and are based on the building engineering, local building codes, and multitude of other factors.

To learn more about metal building foundations, consider reading our blog article titled Understanding Steel Building Slabs/Foundations-Part 1 and Understanding Steel Building Slabs/Foundations Part 2.

What are the color options?
There are a wide variety of color options available for all Buck Steel garage kits. Wall panels, roof panels, as well as our standard commercial rollup doors all have a wide variety of color options which we have worked very hard to accurately represent on our Color Options webpage. Confused about what colors match and how colors look together? Our Colorizer Pro™ color selection tool is one of the best in the industry and allows you to experiment with different color combinations right on your phone, tablet, or computer!
