Need Space? You Need the General!

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.

Compare Garage Building Systems

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.



Pole barns can be aesthetically pleasing an effective solution if you’re willing to maintain the building. Pole barns are also less expensive that other options if you’re looking for a gambrel style roof.


Pole barns can be susceptible to decay from soil conditions and damage from pests. This type of construction is also highly combustible.




Depending on where you live, used Quonset Huts can be cheaper to relocate than build new. Quonset huts also feature a column free design.


Quonset huts must be constructed on a thick slab of concrete for structural integrity. While column free, the sloped sides reduce usable interior space.



Steel prices can be volatile and if you don’t buy at the right time, your building price can change drastically. Learn which economic factors to keep an eye on and where economists forecast the price of steel to go this year.



There are hundreds of customization options and color schemes. Browse our photo gallery to get ideas for your project by exploring our most recent projects, common building applications and popular color combinations.
