How to Navigate Your Upcoming Garage Project
Find out why you should build a garage and how to pick the right style and size.
Did you know that adding a high quality metal garage building to your property could increase the value of your home? One study conducted by Florida State University concluded that the addition of a new garage could add as much as 13% to your home value. Of course, as is true with any home improvement project, the quality of the garage building will go a long way in determining what sort of equity gains you will realize over time.
While return on investment is certainly intriguing and key part of the decision making process, it’s not the only important choice you will make before you roll open your new garage for the first time. Let’s spend some time exploring what makes a garage a practical investment and maybe more importantly, what size garage is the right choice for you.

Garage Styles and Comparisons
Not all garages are created equal.
There are numerous styles of garages and depending on where you live, you may see more of one style than another. For example, arch style garages are prevalent in Alaska and generations of pole barns are common in many areas of the Southeast. However, when you decide to build your garage you have to ask yourself which style is the right choice for your intended use, climate and return on investment.

What is a Steel Garage Kit?
Engineered for your locale, pre-punched and delivered with no welding necessary.
Metal garages can be simple or complex. Some of our customers simply want a structure made completely out of steel with a man door and a rollup door, while others choose to add windows, skylights and even cranes. No matter what options you choose for your new garage building, all will be included in one easy delivery to your job site.
What Your Garage Kit Includes and What You Can Add
Base building packages with a full line of customization options.
As you can see above, a base garage package can be easily customized to suit your exact needs. While the example shows which components we recommend to create a functional garage, you can also choose to add numerous other accessories such a set of windows to increase ventilation and natural light. We suggest ordering the framed openings from General Steel for components such as doors and windows as part of your building package. This can be built into your quote from the start and allows you to shop for your doors and windows locally as well as through our components department.
While our component selection is the best way to increase the functionality of your garage kit, it’s not the only way to customize your garage. Check out some of our most popular color schemes in the photo gallery below to see how you can personalize the aesthetics of your garage.
