There’s a reason why many engineering colleges require a safety course for their students right in their freshman year – safety is basic knowledge. If you’re building a workshop with metal building components, then it follows that you should also be aware of some basic safety checks to ensure that whatever project you take on in your shop, you’ll be minimizing unnecessary risks of accidents and injury.
Typically, your garage would be your go-to storage space for your vehicle and other large items that can’t be taken indoors, such as a lawnmower, power tools, gardening implements and more. Unfortunately, garages can be too expensive to build, and some properties simply do not have enough space for them. This is where a carport shines. Carports carry the same storage functionality of a garage, but it differs in construction and features. Carports could have two, three or all four of its sides completely open or partially walled, and they can be built with a variety of materials like wood, canvas or metal.
Here are the many benefits of having a carport built in your home.
At Metal Warehouse Inc., we offer metal carports kits that even an inexperienced homeowner can assemble or disassemble. The metal frames and tarp can all be stored and transported easily, making it an ideal car storage unit for when you’re considering moving. The time it takes to build or collapse the structure depends on how complex it is. For carports with two or more walls, the process could take up to half a day’s worth of work. This does not include the concrete slab used as the carport flooring.
These carport kits come in different sizes that can accommodate more than just a car. Give your boat, jet ski, ATV, snowmobile and other recreational vehicles some extra protection against the elements by putting up a metal carport.
Our team of builders and designers at Metal Warehouse Inc. are more than happy to help you find the right carport, enclosed metal garage or other steel building for your needs.

Garden sheds are the ultimate storage solution for overcrowded homes. Whether they’re made from metal, prefabricated or built from scratch, outdoor sheds offer an excellent and secure place for all your gardening needs. These small structures often house tools and equipment that are either too big to fit inside the garage or simply too impractical to keep indoors. Unfortunately, their versatile nature also means they are extremely prone to clutter. To avoid this problem, here are some organization tips to consider:
Hailstorms cause over $1-billion worth of damage to buildings and property every year, and unfortunately, the forecast doesn’t look too promising. Over the last 20 years, hailstorms have become worse in frequency and strength. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has even placed Texas as the worst-hit in 2015 with 783 storms in a single year. While pre-engineered steel buildings are designed to be more resistant to hail impact damage than most other types of buildings, they can still get hit pretty hard.
