How can You Improve the Curb Appeal of Your Metal Building?
Curb appeal is nothing more than the attractiveness, or appeal, your building has when seen from the street. So basically, how beautiful you metal building looks. This aspect of a building is more a matter of taste and style for residential buildings. Some people might consider it very important and some might prefer functionality over looks. But for commercial buildings, curb appeal is more than a whim. It helps to attract more customers to the business. More curb appeal will help the business stand apart from its competitors.
Metal buildings have a bad rep when it comes to aesthetics. People consider prefab steel buildings to be very industrial looking that is devoid of any character and personality. However, that is not the case for metal buildings of today. Current metal structures can look equally, if not more, beautiful than the traditional construction. With the right design and accessories, you can purchase a metal building that looks stylish and modern. Below is a list of the ways you can improve the curb appeal of your metal building.
How to Improve the Curb Appeal of Your Metal Buildings?
- Selecting the Right Color Combination for the Metal Building
Color is one of the most visual and effective means of improving the aesthetic of a metal building. With the right color combination, you can give your metal building a look that suits your taste and fits in with the style of your property. All of our metal buildings come with customization options for the color combination. You can choose from our selection of color for the side panels and end panels, the roof panels as well as the trims.
Addition of wainscot to a metal building is also a good idea if you want to spice up its look. A wainscot is a dual color scheme where the bottom surface of the building has a different color than the top. A good color combination for the wainscot with contrasting shades will give your building that extra oomph. We offer wainscot as an option for vertical wall panels.
- Roof Styles for the Metal Buildings
We offer three different roof styles: Regular, Boxed Eave and Vertical for most of our metal buildings. The roofing style of a building is not only important in term of affordability, durability, and maintenance but they can also considerably add to the style of your metal building.
You can choose the Regular roof carport if you want it to have a different and modern style. Whereas, A-framed roofs like the Boxed Eave and Vertical will give the metal carport a look that blends in seamlessly with the architecture of your traditional American house.
- Installing Windows and Doors with Your Metal Building
Primarily you should think about functionality when installing openings for your metal buildings. That does not mean you should not think how they will add to the beauty of the building. Windows and doors, with proper placement and design, can enhance the look of your building. We offer options for windows and doors with our enclosed metal structures. However, if you do not like the design of our openings, we can install frame-outs so that you can install an opening of your own choice at a later date.
- Additional Features for Metal Buildings
If your metal structure is not enclosed, like a metal carport, an RV cover or an open barn, do not worry, we have options to improve the look of your metal building too. With our prefab steel buildings, you can choose to add gables or side and end panels to your structure. These features hide the internal tubing and framework from view and give you metal building a more refined look.
- Regular Cleaning and Maintenance of Metal Buildings
Needless to say, if you want your building to have more curb appeal, you should put some effort into cleaning and maintaining it. Cleaning your metal building regularly, maybe once every six months, will not only make your building look great but will also ensure the longevity of the structure. Repainting areas which are damaged or where colors have faded will also improve the look of your building.
- Landscaping with Metal Buildings
While this is not a feature that we provide, landscaping can soften and improve the looks of prefab steel buildings. You can plant shrubs, bushes, trees, and flower around the building. Make sure that vegetation with hard branches and surfaces are not in contact with the metal buildings. The branches and thorns may scratch and damage the paint on the panels. You can also use hard landscaping and pathways around the metal building which receive a lot of foot traffic. Other landscaping elements like lighting fixtures, outdoor furniture, etc. can also add to the curb appeal of your metal building.
