The wooden garage is currently experiencing a resurgence in popularity. There are many types of timber framed garage, varying in size, shape, style andeven colour - all of which have their respective merits. A garage in any form serves many purposes; aesthetic appeal, the addition of value to a home, the security and protection of vehicles and additional domestic storage space.
Modern wooden garages are extremely resillient and durable, and much like any other structure, There are advantages and disadvantages to timber garages over what we might consider a standard brick or block built garage.
A wooden garage is a versatile and affordable building which can have a high visual impact on the overall appearance of a home. Let's have a look at some of the primary benefits of timber garages alongside some fantastic examples.
Garages are primarily designed and built to provide cover and security to cars and other vehicles, however, as we all know, their true value is often in the additional storage space they can supply things like car accessories, tools, garden furniture, toys, bikes and a whole lot more. To the extreme of their scope, timber garages can be constructed to include, for example, an office or other type of working space and DIY workshop areas.
One significant advantage of timber garages which results in the saving of time and money to construct is that they requires a single level concrete surface as a foundation. This compares to other forms of garage which would typically require the construction of more complex foundations.
The overall construction complexity of a typical timber garage is simpler and less expensive than other standard forms. As unlikely as it may be, it would be possible to deconstruct, relocate and reconstruct a wooden garage elsewhere, which of course wouldn't be possible with other standard forms.
Looking to the future, timber is generally an easy frame of construction to add extensions or make alterations to.
Car ports are primarily designed to protect vehicles from leaves, tree sap, bird droppings, rain, snow, hail and UV rays. They are a simpler, cheaper alternative to a full garage, which of course removes may of the benefits of having an enclosed garage, but a car port may be all that is required.
