Options for Expanding and Adapting Your Patio, Garage or Shed

| Posted in: Advice & Info, Carports, Roofing, Patios

It’s common to outgrow an existing shed, patio or garage. A two-bay shed that was originally meant for parking suddenly may be used to store the ride-on mower,  one of the family vehicles and even a workbench. Even a covered patio area might not be as big as you like, especially for entertaining larger groups.

Fortunately, the great news is if it is part of an existing structure, it can be built at a fraction of the cost.  Here are some situations when an expansion or adaptations can be a good option.

  • Need a larger storage shed
  • Want to expand the size of your existing steel patio
  • An extra covered parking bay for additional cars or to store a boat/trailer/ride on mower
  • Expanding the roofing off the side of the home to create a covered outdoor area.
  • To completely enclose a carport so it functions more as a lockable shed or a workspace.

With existing steel sheds, carports, and patios, many of the structural foundations are already there, so if you’re shed or patio isn’t a spacious as you need, or you want something more from it, talk to our team about how we could expand the space to make it work better for you.
