A garage is more than just a place to keep your vehicles. It can either add to or take away from the visual appeal of your property. The design of your garage is important not just for aesthetic quality, but for durability as well. When choosing your prefabricated garage, there are a number of options to consider that will allow you to customise your garage.
Fascias run horizontally under the edge of the roof of prefabricated garages. They usually hold the gutters up and help make the shingles on a house hang evenly. Fascias can come in concrete, wooden or UPVC finishes and are very low maintenance.
Concrete or prefabricated garages also need high-quality windows. Sturdy, well- made windows are a vital part of garages as they keep out harsh weather, control the air quality in the garage and protect your vehicles, tools, lawn equipment and other items stored in the building. Homeowners can typically choose between open or upright wooden windows or open or upright UPVC windows.
The type of door selected is crucial for concrete garages, prefabricated garages or sheds. The style of your particular garage will help dictate what type of door you choose. The type of opening mechanism, the material out of which the door is constructed and the style of the finish are all important features to consider when designing a garage. Some of the most popular door types include retractable, side hinged or sectional doors.
The doors for garages can be made of steel, timber, fiberglass, insulated aluminum or ABS which is a lightweight, durable synthetic material. The design of your garage door, the construction materials and the finish are all important considerations.
When designing your concrete garage there are a variety of wall finishes to choose from. These finishes include spa, red brick, sand brick, brick, shiplap and stone. The finish you choose should reflect the landscape and your home so that keep a consistent look. Our team can help you decide on what finish will best suit your surroundings.
