Looking to add a bit more storage space or functional room to your new metal building, but don’t need or want it fully enclosed? Design your Worldwide Steel Building kit to include a metal roof overhang.
These metal awnings, no matter their size, keep water and debris away from your building. Then, depending on how big you customize them to be and where you add them onto your metal roof, their functionality is almost endless. From small window awnings that act as rain and sunshades
For homeowners, adding a door awning to the front entrance will provide protection from the elements for package delivery, or for you when you’re trying to unlock the front door in the rain or snow. Adding a patio awning means you can enjoy sitting outside even when it’s drizzling or the sun is oppressive. And a metal roof in addition to (or in place of) a garage can act as a carport.
For those building a shop or storage building, metal awnings can be incredibly useful as well. Worldwide Steel metal roof overhangs are self-supporting up to 14 feet, and can be added either sidewall as an extension of your corrugated metal roof. If you’re working with chemicals or on a project that’s otherwise best done outside, a metal overhang is an ideal way to stay shaded while you’re well-ventilated. Metal awnings also provide additional roofed storage outside your building. No matter what you want to keep out of direct contact with the elements, such as hay, firewood, or your next car project, an extension of your metal roof is the way to do it.
Why Add a Metal Awning to Your Roofing?
When you add a metal roof overhang to your Worldwide Steel building, it essentially becomes part of your building’s roofing system. That means it is structurally as sound as the rest of your roofing, manufactured in the United States, matches the aesthetics of your building perfectly, and is covered under our industry-leading 50-year limited warranty.
Compared with fabric awnings, retractable awnings and even lighter-weight aluminum awnings, a fixed awning made of corrugated metal will require much less maintenance over the life of your metal building. Fixed awnings are designed to handle the snow loads for your area, so you can trust them to protect your things no matter the weather conditions. They’re also sturdy and less prone to mold, mildew and pests than roof overhangs made of other materials.
And if you ever decide you need additional interior space, our stainless steel overhangs can easily be used as part of a DIY home improvement project. Just get back in touch with your Worldwide Steel building expert and let them know you’re looking to enclose your metal overhang. From there, the design process works much the same way as it does when you’re designing your stainless steel building from scratch. We’ll talk doors, windows, other structural considerations, and get your building addition underway.
