Working with General Steel is a collaborative process that ensures that your final product reflects your specific needs. The process starts with a two-way conversation between you and our experienced team. We want to know exactly how you will be using your garage, how it will fit on your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the garage to ensure that it’s equipped to withstand the wind and snow loads of your area as well as any insulation requirements.

We ship nationwide directly to you or your job site. Our prices include FREE JOB SITE DELIVERY except to AZ, AK, & HI. Alaska and Hawaii shipping is calculated by individual quote. Arizona has customer yard pickup available, but individual shipping can be calculated. Your steel garage frame kit will be shipped directly from us via common carrier. In most cases the exterior panels and trim will be shipped from the panel supplier in our network that is closest to your job site location. We have an extensive nationwide database of suppliers for your paneling and reduced shipping is another reason we are able to provide lower prices.


We usually start our 3 car garages out at 20’ wide and can go up to 30’ wide or more; however, the width will depend on the style of your vehicle and if you wish to have a side-entry. By parking along the length of the building you are saving money by not exceeding 30’ in width.  Remember 32’ and beyond in width will bump you into our commercial clear-span garages.

This metal hardness chart organizes different types of metal using the Mohs hardness scale, a metric used by scientists to determine the scratch resistance of different minerals. With diamond at the top of the scale at a score of 10, elements and alloys can fall along the metal hardness scale from 10 (the most scratch-resistant) to 1 (the softest). We’ve arranged common metals in order of hardness in our handy chart and in this list. Our list includes different kinds of metal from metallic elements like silver to common alloys like steel.
