Advantages of a Steel Garage Building


Steel construction is the leading construction method for commercial structures. If you are wondering why, it is because steel structures are built to last several decades with little maintenance.  There are many reasons to invest in a metal building over a typical wooden one. Here are some of the reasons why.


Steel buildings require a little bit of maintenance, but there is far less maintenance needed for a steel structure than for a wooden one. When you have a building built out of steel rather than wood, here are a few things you do not have to think about when considering maintenance:

  • Termites – There is no wood; therefore, you will not have to worry about potential termite damage.
  • Roofing Maintenance – The roof of a traditional wood building is made up of many asphalt shingles that, over time, due to old age or severe weather, can lead to roof leaks—causing significant damage that can go undetected for months. A roof leak is a costly repair that can be avoided with a metal roof that will last several decades with minimal maintenance.
  • Painting – A metal building does need to be power-washed annually to keep clean, but you can save money since you don’t need to hire costly exterior painters.

Versatility With an Open Layout

Steel structures can be used for many different functions, making the possibilities endless. You can go with a barn, carport, garage, RV covers, or commercial or custom units! There are many ways to customize a steel structure, and our creative contractors here at Bulldog Steel Structures are happy to help you.


Steel frames can also resist many different weather environments, including extreme weather. Steel frames can resist up to 170 mph winds. When it comes to protecting your assets, you can be sure that through hurricanes, weather, rain, and snowfall, your building will be protected. Steel frames are non-combustible; therefore, your building will be protected from fires.

Inexpensive Repairs

The costs associated with home repairs or traditional wood repairs can be quite high. With a metal structure, it is simple to replace either some metal or an entire section.
