Uses and Add-Ons for Steel Buildings
At Worldwide Steel Buildings, we’re used to surprising our customers with bells and whistles they never thought were possible in a steel building. If you thought steel buildings were big metal boxes with little opportunity for customization, you’re in for a big surprise. We offer a wide variety of steel building accessories to improve the character and functionality of your building project. Take a look at some of these options for metal building additions that are available when you construct a metal building with Worldwide Steel:
Add a Mezzanine
Imagine a balcony above the main space of your steel building. It’s possible in a Worldwide Steel building, and is a fantastic, cost-effective way to increase the usable space in your building. Use it for extra storage in your workshop, an office in your garage, or a cool game room in your man cave. Our mezzanine bar joist system lets you easily add a loft anywhere. No matter what you use it for, it’s a great way to provide extra space without increasing the building’s footprint.
Skylights Let the Sun Shine In
If you thought a steel building was destined to rely on only man-made light, think again. Natural light is completely possible with the addition of skylights. Enjoy all the benefits of sunlight in your home, woodshop, or garage. Go ahead, make some vitamin D!
Insulation Keeps You Warm & Cozy
Steel buildings may seem cold, but in reality, they are as warm and cozy as you want to make them. We can install insulation in any steel building, no matter what you’re using it for. Many people build homes and enjoy a snug home with no drafts and energy-efficiency (that means lower energy bills, too).
Modified Roof Designs Keep It Interesting
Contrary to popular belief, not all steel buildings look alike. You have plenty of roofline styles to choose from including single slope, asymmetrical, and gabled. You can change the size of your eave extensions. You can even add a cupola! Check out your options with our 3D Building Designer.
A Metal Building Add-On Expands an Existing Structure
Adding a building expansion to your existing building can be a real undertaking when you’re working with traditional building construction. When you’re working with prefab metal buildings, especially precision-engineered Worldwide Steel building kits, it’s much easier. Whether you want to expand the entire footprint of your original building or just add a simple new addition like a carport,
Choose from Many Different Exterior Facades
Does your steel building have to look like a steel building from the outside? Absolutely not. Besides being able to customize the look of your steel building with a wide range of many colors, you can also completely change the facade by choosing brick, stucco, concrete, or wood. A steel building doesn’t have to look like a steel building. Check out these exterior finishes. You can customize it to look like whatever you want! Add cupolas, overhangs, gutters and downspouts, Dutch doors and more.
A Beautiful Steel Building That Will Last for Decades
Considering the durability of a steel building vs. wooden structures (our buildings come with a 50-year structural warranty), and the ease of assembly and the overall versatility, investing in a steel building makes a lot of sense — especially when you see the extra character you can add with our steel building additions.
So, if aesthetics were holding you back, plow ahead and build the structure of your dreams with a steel building from Worldwide Steel!
