What To Consider When Buying A Garage

Protect your vehicles from intense weather

Whether you are looking for a storage solution for your vehicle or place to keep sports equipment safe and dry, a metal garage is the right solution for you.

Find the perfect place

Before installation, make sure you have a perfect place for the garage. All of our metal garages for sale need a level space for installation.

Can it be installed on your property?

Check with your local municipality to see if you need a building permit when we install your metal garage. Many building codes require the permit for your home or business, so make sure to do your research before ordering!


We want you to love your garage! You can customize the look and functionality of your new metal garage. We want you to find a style that will fit with your existing home or business. Take a look at some of the metal garages for sale and customize yours today!

Doors and windows

We can help you design a custom metal garage with multiple doors and windows to let in light. Call us today so we can help design the right garage that fits within your budget.

Roof Style

Finish your metal garage with something sturdy that will stand up against the elements. SteelMasiv Srl offers multiple metal garage options. All roof styles can be certified for structural integrity, but finding the right roof type for your climate and need is important. Take a look through the metal garage photos to find something that will suit your style while standing up to high winds or heavy snows. You want to find a strong roof type that fits with y our home and will stand up best to the elements. Talk to our customer service representatives to learn more about which roof type is best for you.


If you live in a climate with heavy snowfall or heavy rain, SteelMasiv Srl recommends the vertical roof style. The vertical roof panels allow snow and rainwater to exit off the sides. This is an A-frame designed roof with panels installed vertically, with the corrugated ridges running from the highest point on the roof down the side of the building. We also recommend that all buildings longer than 11m use a vertical style roof.


This is also an A-frame design, but rather than vertical panels, these panels are installed horizontally. This is more affordable since it does not have the hat-channel pieces that need to be installed with a vertical roof. Good for areas that have some heavy winds but don’t get a lot of snow or heavy rains.


This roof style is the most economical. Here in the regular style roof, the corrugated ridges run from end to end. This roof style is great if you live in an area without heavy winds and rains. Perfect to protect your cars from sunshine and damage from exposure to the sun.

Choosing The Right Size For Your Needs

Width Sizing Chart

Selecting the right size for your custom metal garage is important. You want to make sure that the metal garage you order will be wide enough for the vehicle or equipment for which you intend to use it.

Carports come in standard widths of 3,5 m, 5,5 m, 6 m, 6,5 m, 7,5 m, 8 m, 8,5 m, 9 m, 10 m, 12 m, 14 m și 20 m. For reference, if you plan to store a single car, truck or RV the standard width of 3,5 m will work. However if you plan to store more than one car, or larger equipment, see the approximate guide below to help you determine your needed width:

Work with our customer service representatives to find the right custom metal carport or RV carport for your needs.


Again, how will this be used? Will you store multiple cars in here? All of our metal garages for sale can be customized to the length that you need. The industry standard length for metal garages is 6 m, 8 m, 10 m and up in 1.5m increments. If you plan to use the garage for any purpose other than storing cars, like storing family bikes or other sports equipment, you may want to consider a longer garage. If you are looking to just store a standard mid-sized car, 6 m should suit you just fine. We also offer standard metal garages that will fit most standard sized cars. Speak with our customer service representatives to learn more.

Side Height

Remember you still need to be able to get your vehicle into the garage! Garage height is measured by the side height, meaning the height on the sides of the metal structure, not from the very top point of the roof to the ground. Side height is used to make sure a vehicle can clear the lowest point of the garage. The standard option is 6m height with the height requirements increasing to 10m for any structure 10m or wider. If you have plans to install additional features such as a garage door in the future, it is best to get the necessary height now so the structure is tall enough to accommodate a garage door. Work with our customer service representatives to find the perfect height garage for your needs.

Certification Considerations

Certified v. non-certified buildings

A certified building has been designed by an engineer and has ratings for wind and snow load. Some local ordinances require that you certify any building that you construct. The objective of these building codes is to insure safety and to protect the public. Some states, don’t require buildings to be certified because they may not have to worry about heavy snowfalls and high winds. Some require all structures to be inspected, while others only require that occupied structures be inspected prior to people living or working inside. We are able to prepare and install garages and metal buildings to meet the criteria for certification. When preparing your base for your garage or metal building installation, please be sure that the ground is level and the concrete slab poured is wide enough to support the carport and anchors. Please note there is no additional warranty on certified buildings. A certified building simply means the building is built to specifications and certified by a professional engineer to meet local building requirements. If you do need to certify your building, you will likely need a copy of the blueprints for the engineers to review. Please speak with our customer service representatives to learn how to get a copy of the blue prints.
