If you are considering the purchase of a metal garage it is not something that you do lightly, as it is an investment in a building that you expect to last for many years; you won’t necessarily want to buy the first one you see, since there are different models on the market and the quality can vary considerably.
Be careful of DIY metal garages, as they are often weak and easy to damage accidently, even from something as innocuous as the neighbor kids kicking a soccer ball into the side of the garage. Choose one that will stand the test of time, as well as any inclement weather you may experience. Additionally, because of the size of a metal garage, you should take the time to find one that is visually appealing and fits in with your home and yard.
Probably one of the strongest garages buildings available on the market is the Duramax 12′ x 20′ metal garage which is available in choice of green or white colors both of will which will blend in well with any yard or garden. The wide 99″ or 8′ 3″ roll up door will accommodate all of the normal SUV’s, and the garage is also available in a 26ft.and 32ft. version. On top of that, you can buy 5ft. extension kits to enlarge your building at any time.
When you buy a detached garage you also want something that is easy to erect. If you hire a contractor to do the work you can quite easily pay two or three times the price for a job that you can do over a weekend with a friend or helper. Duramax diy garage kits come with very simple instructions and have been designed for easy home assembly rather than the necessity for calling in a building expert.
They are also extremely robust and will tolerate all weathers. Provided they are correctly anchored to the ground in accordance with the instructions, they have been tested to withstand winds of 115 miles per hour. The roof support truss system has also been designed and proven to withstand 20 lbs of snow per square foot, which is a considerable amount of snow wherever you live.
All of the frame parts are manufactured from hot dipped galvanized steel, so there is no chance that they are going to rust. The walls have a special rib design and are made of thick steel to withstand dents. Since the Duramax is a metal garage it is ideal if you live in an area with termites; they simply can’t eat their way through steel. Every Duramax metal garage comes with a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty.
A Duramax metal garage comes equipped with a lockable pedestrian side door, so if you need to pop into it for any reason there is no need to roll up the main entrance door. Many customers purchase a Duramax metal garage for purposes other than that for which it was originally designed; for example it makes a marvellous boat house for a small to medium sized boat, can be used as a studio, and, of course, makes a great workshop.
In comparison to the other garage packages, you will find that the Duramax garage kit is a cut above the rest.
