Keen’s Buildings: Building your Dream Garage
A metal garage is a fantastic way to protect your vehicles from the elements; however, there is so much more to it than that. A quality metal garage can increase your house resale value, making the investment well worth it! When it comes to building a garage, it’s never a bad idea to err on the side of more than less. Life often has unexpected turns, and you may have to upgrade to a larger vehicle. Investing in a large metal garage up front will save you the work of having to increase the size later, should you ever need to.
Benefits of a Metal Garage
Metal structures do not require support beams; this means when it comes to space you’ll get more bang for your buck! In addition to that, metal is fire resistant and not susceptible to rot, termite infestations, or warping. A metal building can also be constructed in a significantly shorter time frame than their wooden counterparts.
Metal is also eco-friendly. The vast majority of metal buildings are created from recycled materials. The best part is that if you ever don’t need your metal building anymore, it can be recycled or easily moved.
How much space Do I need?
Generally, the amount of space you’ll need is relevant to the size of the vehicle you are storing. Naturally, if you are planning on storing a larger vehicle, you’ll need a larger space. You’ll also need to take into account the necessary space you’ll need to move around in comfortably. If you are planning to use your garage as a workshop, as well then more space will be required. If you are adding a workshop add about ten extra feet to your structure layout, this will allow you to fit a workbench and a tool storage area comfortably.
Customization and other utility and styling choices
To capitalize on your investment, if you wish to resell your property, you’ll want to make the garage and your home match. Depending on the style of your house and property one important consideration is whether or not you want your garage attached or detached to your home.
Installing the same panels for your garage as the ones on your house will create a uniform look to your property. If you want utilities (such as lighting and water), you’ll need additional permits. Be sure also to follow local building codes. If building regulations are not abided by you may have to rebuild all or part of your building. You may also have difficulties selling your house.
