Detached Metal Garage

Why Every Michigan Resident Needs A Detached Garage

As a resident of Michigan, you know how quickly the weather can change. One moment, it can be blue skies and sunny, and the next you are surrounded by snow flurries and freezing temperatures. Living in an area with such extreme temperatures can pose risks on your property and possessions that are stored outside. Your car and other equipment can become weathered and worn down a lot quicker if they aren’t properly covered. 

At Wholesale Direct Carports, we know how important it is to keep your car protected from the crazy elements that Michigan weather throws its way. There are several reasons why every Michigan resident should add a custom detached garage to their property, and we will cover a majority of those reasons in this blog. 

For more details on carports and garages, and how you can have one installed on your property, call us today. We are here to help with all of your carport needs! 

Buy Your Detached Metal Garage


Michigan residents are not strangers to snow. The Midwest experiences quite a bit of snowfall throughout the year and have learned how to brave the cold. Now, we aren’t saying that leaving your car out in the snow is the worst thing in the world. Let’s face it, cars were built to operate in various conditions and protect people from the weather that occurs on their drives. However, snow can be quite an inconvenience to deal with, especially living in Michigan where the average annual snowfall is about 82 inches. Having a detached garage for your car will help make your life easier when you go to run errands or leave for work in the morning and don’t have to clean off the snow that piled up on your car during the night. While this is more of a luxury than a necessity, it’s definitely one that many Michigan residents can enjoy during those harsh winter months. 


While snow is a typical form of weather to deal with in Michigan, it isn’t the only kind of weather that affects your car. Hail can be a big threat to your car, especially if the golf-sized hail comes crashing down on the roof and hood of your car. It can not only cause extensive damage, but can cost you a lot of money down the road to get the dents and cracks in your car repaired. When you install an enclosed garage on your property, you can have peace of mind knowing your car is protected from the hail. This not only reduces stress, it also prevents you from having to pay for costly repairs down the road. 

Increased Security

While we believe that the majority of our world is filled with good people that would never want to damage your property or steal from you, there are some people out there that will go to extreme lengths at the expense of other people. Metal garages not only protect your car from Michigan weather, they can also protect your car from potential criminals. If you invest in a metal enclosed garage, you can reduce the risk of having your car messed with or broken into. Additionally, if you leave your car parked on the side of the street during the cold winter months, there is a possibility that someone driving down the road could hit a patch of ice and slide into your car, causing costly damages. Removing your car from those risk factors is well worth the money and peace of mind, don’t you think? 

Extra Storage

So far, we have given weather-related reasons as to why you should install a detached garage on your property. However, there are reasons that make sense year-round as to why you should add a metal garage. While storage might not be the first thing people think about when looking at metal garage buildings, it is one of the many reasons why people decide to purchase one. Garages have so many more uses than protecting your vehicles. They provide additional storage space for items that you don’t have room for in your home, larger equipment, tools, outdoor recreation equipment, and more. Wouldn’t it be nice to have all of your belongings close to you rather than storing them away miles down the road where you can’t keep a good eye on them? Detached garages are a great solution for that! At Wholesale Direct Carports, we take a highly customizable approach to detached garages. You can request any size of garage that would work for your needs, and we will take care of the rest!
