40×60 Garage

A 40×60 metal garage comes in two styles. The design of choice dictates the cost incurred on the purchase and installation process of the buildings.

first style of 30 x 40 garage

A traditional style garage with a straight wall (gable) and a peaked roof is the first style of the 40×60 metal garage. The second one is a dome-shaped carport with vertical walls like the p-shaped one. This is known as a Quonset. The Quonset is more stable and durable compared to the other one. Typically, the dome-shaped carport does not need a complete concrete foundation. This is because its walls can be set to narrow concrete footings. This displays the level of stability of the metal buildings. However, a full slab is recommended in the construction of a garage. 

While these are some of the many options, there are other designs as well:

The 40x60 Drive Through

  • Large boats, trailers, and other vehicles may drive in and out of a 40×60 garage through its 14×16 foot doors at each end.
  • The main drive-through section can accommodate a full-size truck and a 32-foot trailer.
  • Also a 450 square feet of clear-span floor space is still available for storage down the length of the garage building.

Garage with Loft

  • A mezzanine level is included in a 40×60 commercial garage design, adding 800 square feet of space for an office or extra storage.
  • Four vehicles may park in this configuration, and the lower level also has 800 square feet of storage space.
  • Twenty 4×3 windows can be incorporated which provides enough natural light to enter the structure.

Six Car Garage

  • A 40×60 metal building would be appropriate for a commercial garage.
  • The steel 40×60 garage can comfortably fit six automobiles or trucks and has 2,400 square feet of storage space.
  • A 200-square-foot office and an additional 480 square feet of storage are also included.
  • A covered porch area has also been created to offer a protected outdoor space.

Garage with Lean-to

  • The 40×60 metal garage building has a 2,400 square foot footprint, which comfortably fits four large automobiles while still providing 1,200 square feet of workspace or project space.
  • The attached lean-to on the left-end wall provides more covered storage space of 480 square feet. Skylights and ridge vents on the roof are additional advantages for this garage.

You see, the beauty of a 40×60 metal garage is its adaptability. The examples provided above are just the tip of the iceberg. You can dictate how your garage comes to life, from style, design to features and finishes.

Prices of 40x60 Garage

A 40×60 garage is ideal for a three car or four-car space. The cost of a 40×60 garage kit relies upon several factors, and understanding these minute details can help you make informed decisions.

Framing And Sheeting

  • The wall heights, the gauge of the framing and steel sheeting, the number of walk doors and windows, and the choice of having an insulated wall or not. 

Door And Windows

  • For instance, the cost of a 30x40x12 that has 10×10 doors (roll-up doors) is $24,336. The price is bound to shoot up if you add more metal building windows and doors or if you raise the height of the metal garage.

Foundation Cost

  • Your metal carport’s foundation creates a base for it. Depending on your location and type of soil, the cost of excavating, levelling, and pouring the foundation may change.
  • A sturdy steel structure depends on careful site preparation.
  • Although concrete is not very expensive, the labour cost to have the concrete slab laid can be high. The price of labour varies significantly from region to region.

Labour Charges

  • A professionally installed garage guarantees a sturdy construction.
  • The complexity of the project, its location, the need for customisation, and local labour rates all affect labour costs.
  • Your 40×60 metal garage will be built to safety standards by our skilled contractors.

Extra Accessories

  • Think about adding building ventilation, lighting, shelving, and electrical wiring as accessories.
  • These extras increase functionality but raise the cost of the 40×60 garage as a whole.
  • A comfortable workstation is created by adequate lighting and ventilation, and effective tool and equipment organization is achieved with shelving.


  • Getting the required licences and ensuring your 40×60 garage conforms with local codes are frequently disregarded costs.
  • Adherence to construction codes is essential and may entail paying fees for approvals and inspections.

Construction Cost

  • The labour costs to build and install the structure, typically an additional $5 to $10 per square foot, must also be considered.
  • If you want to save money and install it yourself, you can choose a prefabricated kit.
  • Fortunately, all our goods come with free shipping and installation if you purchase a metal building kit from us.

Traditional Stick-Built v/s Metal Garage

  • A metal garage will normally run you between $11 and $16 per square foot to build.
  • Metal buildings are a reasonably priced choice, particularly if money is tight.
  • In comparison, a traditional stick-built or wooden carport would probably cost between $35 and $45 per square foot, so keep that in mind when evaluating prices.

Knowing these expenses allows you to customise the layout of your 40×60 garage to fit your needs and budget. By doing this, you can build a garage that will be a useful addition to your home and be both sturdy and functional while being reasonably priced.

Essential Maintenance Tips for 40X60 Garage

Here are some essential maintenance tips to keep your 40×60 garage in top shape:

  • Every six months, look over the structure for any indications of wear and tear or damage. Look for rust, loose nuts or screws, dents, scrapes, and other damage. 
  • Regular cleaning helps to prevent the accumulation of debris, dirt, and grime, which can harm the metal. Additionally, clean out any garbage or vegetation that may be growing in the gutters or on the roof.
  • Look for any signs of damage on the roof, such as leaks or holes. Make sure the gutters and downspouts are clean, functional, and free of obstructions.
  • The HVAC system needs to be maintained to maintain the building’s comfort. Regularly check the filters and replace them if necessary. To avoid the accumulation of dust and debris, clean the ducts as well.
  • Rust is a prevalent issue with metal structures. Use a rust inhibitor to stop rust from forming on the outside of the building. Additionally, as soon as a rust spot develops, it should be painted over with rust-resistant paint after being sanded down.
  • The building can sustain damage over time if air and water are allowed to enter. Sealing the building can help prevent this. Look for any gaps in the doors and windows and caulk or weatherstripping them shut.
