Metal Workshop Buildings
Types of Steel Workshops
Metal workshop buildings can be used as a place for both work and play. Depending on your needs, these fully-enclosed buildings can be used for work, hobbies, or a relaxing man cave or mom cave. No matter what your needs may be, we can build a workshop building to fulfill most any residential, agricultural, and commercial need.
a look at some of the ways you can use these versatile units –
- Commercial Workshop – While some people think of a workshop as a smaller building installed in your backyard, they are so much more! Commercial workshops are popular for businesses in need of a place for their production line or storage for heavy equipment and products.
- Residential Workshop – In most cases, residential workshops are purchased for side businesses, office spaces, or for hobbies such as woodworking. They can also be utilized for storage, an animal shelter, or a playhouse for your children.
- Automotive Repairs Workshop – If you’re a mechanic or if you prefer to work on your vehicles yourself, you can take advantage of these structures and use them as an automotive repair workshop. With a few customization options and a personal touch, you can have the perfect body repair shop.
- Agricultural Workshop – From storing feed, to storing riding gear, to stables for your animals, you can take advantage of the open concept offered by workshops to fulfill most any agricultural need.

Roofing Systems at Carport Direct
The roof of your steel workshop is just as important as the structure itself. Not only does the roof protect your vehicles and other personal belongings from foul weather, but it adds to the structural integrity, keeping the unit strong and sturdy for years to come. We offer three roof styles at Carport Direct, each with its own unique advantages.
- Regular (Good) – The regular roof is commonly known for its unique round-edges, resembling that of a more traditional home or barn. Due to its simple framing and the curved corners, it is best suited for areas that do not typically experience high winds, rain, or snow. The biggest benefit of this roof style is that it is economically priced.
- A-frame Horizontal (Better) – Also known as a boxed-eave design, the A-frame horizontal roof is a slight upgrade from the regular roof. It is installed with horizontally aligned panels, recommended for customers who reside in warmer areas that may experience light rain or snowfall. The primary benefit of the boxed-eave roofing system is the ability to own an A-frame style structure without the price of a vertical roof.
- Vertical (Best) – Vertical roofs are the most durable, highest-recommended roofing system throughout the metal building industry. They are installed with additional framing pieces and vertically-oriented paneling, making them a great choice for areas prone to harsh weather conditions. For structures that are longer than 36’, you are required to have a vertical roof installed.
Advantages of Steel Workshops
In addition to being fully-customizable, these metal structures are also versatile, durable, and long-lasting. When compared to other building materials such as brick, wood, vinyl, and others, steel is a far superior option. A few of our other benefits include:
- Low Maintenance
- Energy Efficient
- Fire and Pest Resistant
