Why are Wooden Garages So Popular?
Wooden garages have been growing rapidly in popularity through the UK in recent years. Increasing numbers of people are installing them to keep their cars dry, safe and secure. A home garage serves many purposes from simply lending aesthetic beauty and value to your home, to adding security and protection for your vehicles and other belongings.
Wooden garages are considered an authentic addition to any property and are extremely cost-effective. Let’s take a look at why wooden garages are so popular by discussing the advantages.
Wooden Garages are Extremely Durable
Many people don’t realise that wooden garages are extremely durable and sturdy, even during harsh weather. Wood has been used for decades in construction work and is considered one of the most naturally durable materials available. When built and treated properly, wooden garages will remain weather resistant even during the harshest climates.
Wooden Garages Offer a Simple Foundation
When installing a wooden garage, you will only require a simple foundation – reducing the need for excessive land excavation. A wooden garage only requires a single concrete slab as a foundation, helping distribute the weight of the car evenly on the ground. Concrete foundations are also required for heavier garages that are built to support the weight of the walls themselves. However, wooden garages require minimal foundations and cause limited interruption to your property.
Wooden Garages are Simple to Install
Wooden garages are easier to install than any other material type and can be erected in very little time. Other garages, such as metal or concrete, take far longer to install due to the excessive foundations that need to be dug and the extra construction required.
Wooden Garages are a Good Natural Insulator
It is worth remembering that wood is a naturally good insulator. Garages are made from wood, naturally keeping temperatures warmer than garages made from metal or concrete. Insulation is especially appreciated by people during the winter months when they must leave the warmth of their car for their garage. But with a well-insulated garage, you won’t need to delay getting out of the car.
Damaged Parts are Easily Replaced
If you care for your wooden garage effectively, it can easily last for 10 to 15 years. Wooden garages require very little maintenance. However, if you have had a wooden garage for a very long time it may be that some parts have become damaged. If this is the case, do not worry – wooden garages that become damaged are easily fixed or replaced.
If rot or other forms of damage have affected your wooden garage, the affected segments can be easily replaced with other pieces of wood, restoring functionality to the area. Wooden garages allow you to easily replace damaged sections without having to pull apart the entire garage.
Wooden Garages Offer Timeless Aesthetic Value
Wooden garages are an aesthetically pleasing addition to any property and are certainly regarded as a timeless attraction – sometimes even adding to the value of your home. Wood has always been a beautiful material to build with and has added a sense of style and impressiveness to any structure.
