Three Ways to Build a Custom Garage
If you’re thinking about building a custom garage, there are many factors to consider! Even beyond size, style, colors and finishes, how you intend to build the structure is an important decision. So when choosing a contractor for your project, it’s important to understand how they intend construct the building, and what the benefits and drawbacks are to each method.
As an experienced custom garage builder we know the in’s and out’s of various building methods. Read on to learn a little bit more about each one!
- Stick Built Garages
This method of building is very common, and consists of traditional wood studs, joists and other components built on a concrete foundation. Stick built garages can be customized to suit just about any use, and can be finished just like a home. That means finished interiors, stylish exteriors and functionality like storage spaces, rec rooms, man caves and workshops.
- Post Frame Garages
Post frame techniques are another popular way to build a custom garage, and this is where our team excels! This type of construction offers many of the same benefits of traditional stick built garages, but with faster build times and lower costs. Post frame garages can have finished interiors, stylish exteriors and all of the same functionality you would expect from a stick built garage. However, post frame garages can give you a great deal of “bang for your buck” as they can be completed quickly and are engineered to deliver the same level of structural integrity using less costly building methods. One additional benefit to post frame garages is the ability to easily and cost-effectively build wide clear spans and high ceilings that are perfect for boat and RV storage.
- Garage Kits
A do-it-yourself garage kit can sound appealing, but can present challenges. These inexpensive packages are often comprised of lower quality components, and don’t stand the test of time. Because they’re more like a shed than a building, they don’t include finished interiors, electric or plumbing, and can’t be added on to down the road as your needs evolve. However, they are inexpensive and fast to assemble if you have a little bit of know-how. So depending on your needs, a garage kit might be the right choice for you.
