At Eagle Buildings, we usually get these queries from our customers, and to answer them for all of you, we have created this guide. This will help you find the perfect steel garage that fits your lifestyle, needs, and budget. Let's get started!

  1. Define the Garage's Purpose
    Before you do anything else, think about what you want to use the garage for. Will it be a home for your car or bike, a workshop, a storage area, or maybe a mix of these? Knowing the purpose will help you decide the size, style, and features you need.
  2. List What You'll Store
    Take a look at the items or vehicles you plan to keep in the garage. Measure their size and consider how much space they'll need. Remember, you might want extra room for moving around, future purchases, or additional storage.
  3. Measure Your Available Space
    Check the area where you want to place your metal garage. Make sure you have enough room for the structure and some extra space for easy access and maintenance. It's a good idea to measure twice to avoid any surprises later!
  4. Explore Different Types of Garages
    Metal garages come in various types, including one-car garages, two-car garages, three-car garages, RV garages, custom garages, and more. Think about which style suits your needs and preferences. Some might offer more ventilation; others might be better for security – choose what's best for you.
  5. Check Local Building Requirements
    Before you get too far into planning, make sure you're aware of any local building codes or zoning regulations. This might affect the size, location, and type of garage you plan to build. A quick check now can save you headaches later.
  6. Understand the Benefits of Metal Garages
    Metal garages are highly durable, low maintenance, and more affordable than wooden and stick-built garages. They're also resistant to fire, pests, and weather, making them a great long-term investment. Keep these benefits in mind as you decide.
  7. Set Your Budget
    Knowing how much you're willing to spend will help you make the right decision about your garage. There are many budget factors to consider, including foundation, building permits, customization features, and more. Just go through these requirements and plan your budget accordingly!
  8. Consider Customization Options
    One of the best things about metal garages is how customizable they are. Doors, windows, colors, panels, gauges, and more can usually be tailored to your liking. Think about what custom features will make the garage perfect for you.
