The Ideal Metal Garage Workshop

The Ideal Metal Garage Workshop

A Workshop for Hobbyists or Professionals

If you are in need of a new workshop, or thinking about building your first one, consider a metal garage from First, think about what you want in a workshop. What comes to mind? I’d imagine the list of qualities looks something like this: durable, secure, customizable, and a nice looking exterior. One of our steel buildings easily covers all of these basic needs:

  • Durable: Made with high quality 12 or 14 gauge galvanized steel, our metal garages are incredibly strong.
  • Secure: Certify and anchor yours to withstand extreme weather, and add garage doors to keep unwanted guests out.
  • Customizable: If you need extra space, design it. If you need extra windows or doors, design it. If you need anything at all, we can help. Use our simple online builder to design the perfect building.
  • Eye-Candy Exterior: We build attractive buildings! Customize yours with style, color, and trim options to fit the look of your home. There’s a reason why our products increase your home’s value; they look great!

The Best Package Deal

From start to finish, we want to help you build the perfect building. We’ll help design with you, and work through any road bumps. Then we’ll do the manufacturing, and deliver and install for free! However, seeing as you seem to be the Do-It-Yourself type, you can save 5% on your final building cost by opting to install your structure yourself! It’s a simple project, and upon completion will instill even more pride that your workshop is finished.

At Elephant Structure’s, providing our customers with the best experience is our goal. Our process is designed to make your life easy, and to give you a final product that will serve you well for years to come.

Environmental Steel Carport

Environmental Steel Carport

Steel is an Environmentally Friendly Material

Steel is one of the best resources one can use to construct a structure in today’s world. Relative to other resources, it is much better for the environment in many different ways. Just a few of them are:

  • Steel is 100% recyclable and can be recycled as many times as needed without losing strength properties.
  • Using metal preserves our trees. Where a house may need an acre of forest chopped in order to be constructed, it would conversely only need about six or seven cars worth of recycled steel.
  • Steel production is environmentally friendly. Steel producers typically recycle materials and produce low emissions.
  • Our pre-fabricated buildings require little construction time, no machinery to construct, and few labor hours which reduces energy consumption.
  • Insulate one of our steel buildings and save on heating and cooling, costing you and our environment less. Steel is great for reducing HVAC energy.
  • Where other materials rot, break, or simply degrade, a metal carport, garage, or barn will not falter. Metal buildings rarely need to be replaced, and therefore require less materials to be built over the life-time of the product.
  • A metal structure is good for the GREEN certification as well!

The world is changing. Climate change is reported by scientists to make America hotter, drier, and prone to natural disasters and other extreme weather patterns. We can expect the number of days with 95 degree weather to continue to increase in number, with drought becoming more probable for the nation, not just the Midwest. The company named Tesla, owned by Elon Musk, has recently released all their patents regarding their fully electric cars and chargers to the public in an attempt to build a more environmental future together. This is a move that could have an effect on the way your carport serves you. You can contract a solar company to build solar panels onto your carport, and if you have an electric vehicle, in the very near future it may be easy to get your hands on a Tesla Super Charger.

We can all do our part in an effort for a better, sustainable world and country. Purchasing a steel carport as opposed to one made of a different material is a great start. Call us at (855) CAR-PORT to speak to an expert sales engineer today!

A Public Service Announcement

Today on July 7th, 2014, our newest Public Service Announcement will be aired on Appalachian State University’s radio channel, WASU 90.5 FM. Our carports can make sure your vehicle is at its peak condition for optimal safety while on the road, and then it’s up to you to stay safe. We want to urge drivers to never text and drive, so between 3PM and 4PM today, and airing on Wednesday and Friday at the same time as well, this message will be heard:

“ is on the air reminding our listeners ‘don’t text and drive’. An automobile can be a deadly weapon in the hands of someone who’s eyes aren’t even on the road! Timing and judgement are critical when innocent lives are at stake, and driving while texting impairs both. So from now on, don’t text and drive. Don’t tempt fate – that text can wait!  This important reminder is a courtesy of in Boone, where you can design a building online. They’re on the air because they care about the safety of our community.”

Please be safe while on the road! Our community depends on each and every one of us to do our part!

car protection for safety

Building a Safer Community

A carport protects your vehicle from damage, leading to a safer experience on the road. Extreme weather and heat can do damage that may go unnoticed, but could have a serious impact on your vehicle’s ability to perform. For example, prolonged exposure to heat can make your tires bald very quickly, increasing the probability that you lose control of your vehicle in sub-prime conditions. That is only one instance of how sheltering your vehicle could prevent a tragedy, there are many more! We believe in a brighter, safer, and responsible community. Let’s work together to make it happen. Customize a metal carport with Elephant Structure’s, and please remember to never text and drive! Call us at (855) CAR-PORT to learn more!
