The Key to More Space: A Metal Lean-To Garage

The Key to More Space: A Metal Lean-To Garage

One of late comedian George Carlin’s most famous routines was known as “A Place for My Stuff,” in which he addressed the problem of having too much stuff. A house, he said, is really just a place for your stuff. When you acquire too much stuff, you have to move to a bigger house. Of course, we can’t do the bit justice in print, but like a lot of comedy, there’s always a kernel of truth behind it.

Fortunately, there are solutions to a packed house less costly than pulling up stakes. Many people have turned to metal lean-to garages to add extra space. Lean-to garages are ideal for various purposes, and they’re sure to protect your stuff from any inclement weather. Their simple, sloped-roof design allows rain and snow to fall off easily, depending on what kind of custom roof you select.

The more classic, regular roof is perfect for mild climates, offering protection from rain and wind. However, if the weather is more substantial in your area, boxed-eave roofs will fend off snowfall. If you’re expecting the worst, a vertical roof can help to manage even a blistering blizzard.

A Multitude of Uses!

Multitude of Uses

Ideally, you should know what you will use your lean-to for before setting it up, so you can make sure it meets any necessary functional requirements you may have.

The Benefits of Steel

Steel garages have unique benefits that wood or other structures just can’t compete with, and a lean-to offers the owners a great sense of what they are. They offer unparalleled strength and durability, and apart from the added protection, metal lean-to garages also offer:

Supplemental Space

If your garage doesn’t have enough room or you’re looking for a little additional space, a lean-to will give you the extra area you need. You’ll have no trouble organizing and arranging gardening equipment or other machines.


Metal has plenty of durability, easily fending off any adverse weather. Metal is not susceptible to mold or rotting like wood buildings, nor does it attract termites and other bugs. It’s just more hygienic to have a metal garage.


There’s no question steel is stronger than wood, protecting against even winter storms, tornadoes, hail, and more.

Inexpensive Building and Repairs

There appears to be a common misconception that steel buildings are expensive when in reality, they are quite cost-effective and reasonably priced. Additionally, repairs are not going to set you back financially or physically. Metal buildings often require little more than small welds or new parts, which are relatively easy and inexpensive.


As metal buildings are resistant to sun, water, and dust, there’s no chance of rust. Steel also doesn’t corrode, never entertaining condensation.

Fully Customizable

All our steel lean-to garages are fully customizable, with your roof choice from regular, boxed-eave, or vertical. You also have your choice of doors, windows, or side panels for your garage. And no metal lean-to garage is truly yours without your choice of color.

We haven’t even covered all the benefits that will become evident on the first day of installation, including fire-resistance, inexpensive insurance, and an eco-friendly design.
