Because of the transformation of the American real estate market, adding and extending a building on your property can be an incredibly valuable investment.

Whether you are considering selling your property or considering extending your existing building to increase your livable space, adding square footage to your metal pole barn can be extremely beneficial. Find out more in this guide by Mansea Metal.

Added Square Footage Equals More Storage

In the US, there are over 50,000 storage facilities and 24 million rentable units - at a monthly price of nearly $100! Before the pandemic, nearly 10% of all households in the US were renting storage facilities. But, today, this percentage is far greater as Covid-19 triggered a new space race and left families wanting more livable space.

But if you have your own metal pole barn, you will never struggle to find enough space to store your belongings. And, extending your barn’s square footage is an excellent affordable storage alternative!

A Larger Metal Pole Barn Can Help You Scale Up Your Agricultural Operations

Metal pole barns are extremely functional and versatile. Depending on your needs, a metal pole barn can house stables, farm shops or agricultural businesses, antique cars, or machinery and tools. Extending your metal pole barn’s square footage is an excellent way to increase your operational space. In terms of agricultural businesses and farm shops, more square footage means that you can store more products, guarantee supply, and sell to more customers. 

Larger Indoor Living Environment For Your Animals

Whether you own livestock, barn animals, or horses, there is no doubt that you are always looking to improve their quality of life. And, since the beginning of the pandemic, the whole world understood the importance of protecting animal welfare. Extending your metal pole barn’s square footage allows you to create larger stables, pens, or living spaces for your animals. Even if you are unsure about this investment, remember that the results are healthier horses, higher quality products, and better living space for you and your family.

If you are just getting started in the world of animal agriculture or stables management, make sure to speak to experts in the industry and refer to the local government guidelines.

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
