One of the best things about steel buildings is the fact that it’s something that can add plenty of function and utility to your residential property in a number of ways. Not only can you erect a prefab steel building as a garage (or workshop, office, or even a home gym) for the betterment of your property, it will also do plenty to increase your property value! It’s important to know that making these kinds of additions to your property will usually have a positive effect depending on how it’s done. First, you will have to decide whether you want an attached or detached steel building. It’s imperative that you consider how tricky it might be to blend the structure in with the rest of your home, so detached is often the better option for most properties. Here are just a few of the ways a steel building garage can increase your home’s property value!
No two homes will ever be created equally, so setting yourself apart from the rest of what is in your neighbourhood is a great way to draw buyers in who might have passed on the property otherwise. Some homeowners might have multiple cars, plenty of items to store or even be looking for a space they can repurpose for other uses; so seeing the additional space already built and ready to go will be enticing to them for a number of reasons and make it much easier to sell the property when you’re ready to.
The best way to add property value to a home is by adding square footage, and by having additional space on your property whether it’s attached or not, you do plenty to increase value. Other things like condition and age of the property definitely matter, but adding more to the total area has the most powerful impact on the home’s resale value.
Your home might have a garage and adding another detached one might not seem like a good idea, but consider the possibility of turning your current garage space into something else and having the steel building garage specifically for car storage. Your home’s current garage could very well be a home office, another bedroom or even a whole bachelor unit if renovated, insulated and customized in just the right way. This is something that can add tons of property value to your home, by adding additional rooms inside the home without having to do expensive tear downs or additions to your home in the conventional and much more time-consuming way!
Another great thing about steel buildings is the fact that including it on your property won’t give you more things to have to repair regularly, since prefab steel structures are typically very low maintenance. Annual inspections are recommended, but you won’t need to spend the time and money doing constant repairs the same way you would with a garage constructed from wood.
