My entire building experience with Morton was nothing but outstanding. My salesman was great and the building crew was always polite, professional and answered all my questions courteously and with simple facts for me to understand.

Your Morton garage can be customized to complement any existing structures, including your home. And it doesn’t have to be your traditional metal detached garage either; we work with many vendors to provide everything from premier windows to one-piece hydraulic doors. You can also add features like acoustical steel to cut down on noise and Morton’s exclusive Energy Performer® insulation system to provide a comfortable and energy-efficient insulated steel garage year-round.
Morton’s roofs are designed for long-term good looks, and they’re available in a variety of colors and roof pitches. The many available options for roof types include:
- Dutch Hip
- Gable Dormer
- Deep Fascia Overhang
- Eyebrow Overhang
Overhead doors are used in a variety of applications and sizes in our metal detached garages. Your Morton sales consultant—coordinating with local subcontractors with whom we do business—can recommend which overhead door best meets your needs.
Bi-fold doors in widths up to 70' and one-piece hydraulically operated doors—in a wide variety of sizes ranging from 10'x10' to 80'x22'—are also available for those large vehicle or equipment applications that require a specialty door.
We carry a quality line of walkdoors. Our MB910 walkdoor is “thermally broken” to reduce thermal heat loss and condensation build-up—a great choice for insulated buildings. The MB FiberSteel® door, our premium walkdoor, is recommended for a variety of customer applications and offers a crossbuck design option. All of our walkdoors are available with or without windows.
Wainscot adds style and protection, which you can add any time in the life of your buildings. Finishes available include:

Morton Buildings recognizes that a superior building is best accented with an outstanding paint coating. That’s why Morton offers the FLUOROFLEX paint system. FLUOROFLEX 1000 provides superior protection against fading, chalking, paint peeling and red rust. Because it resists the effects of ultraviolet rays, rain and pollution, it retains color and gloss far longer than standard consumer or commercial paint coatings. Morton is proud to offer a 35-year warranty for most colors against chalking, fading and peeling of FLUOROFLEX 1000.

benefits of a morton metal garage building
Whether you need a metal garage building for a second vehicle, guest or children’s vehicle parking, or to store a boat, tools, lawn tractors, UTVs, motorcycles, work truck, bus, RV, or just need extra workshop space, Morton can deliver a strong and durable building to meet your needs and style.
Second and third generation owners will tell you their Morton buildings look like new after decades of use. From foundations to fasteners, every detail is designed for minimal maintenance. In fact, the reason we offer the industry-leading warranty is because Morton buildings:
- Use FLUOROFLEX® paints because they resist moisture and UV light
- Won’t corrode or rot because of treated wood, true stainless steel screws and rust-resistant ring shank fasteners
- Stand strong against high wind and snow loads
- Eliminate leaking and condensation build-up through roof pitches and ventilation systems
- Control condensation and thereby protect insulation from moisture and sagging
Compared to steel structure garages, our post-frame buildings are highly engineered and structurally sound with truss to column attachment options that can be customized to your load requirements and climate conditions.
Insulated Morton buildings are more efficient than other types of steel structure garages. Additionally, Morton offers ways to make your energy dollar stretch even further with ENERGY STAR® components and the Energy Performer® insulation system.
Also, our type of construction is fast in many ways. First, you can begin any time of year, as weather-related construction delays are rare. Once you begin, the amount of time it takes to get “under roof” is approximately half what you would normally expect from other construction techniques.
From the smallest fastener to the trusses overhead, Morton leaves absolutely no detail to chance. If we’re going to put our name on it, we’re going to make sure it’s done right. That’s why we employ the people who manufacture the building materials, deliver them to your site and construct your building. It’s the only way we can assure you the high-quality, energy efficiency and “new building look” that defies time—guaranteed.
