Garages – an important part of the Australian Life!
Garages are the best form of storage for our cars, caravans, boats, tools and the list goes on. Most of the homes have at least a single garage and some bigger ones have as much as three garage spaces built into the house. However, storage space always seems to be short and the more we have the quicker we fill it up.
Once the garage or garages built into the house are full we need to look at other storage solutions to protect our belongings from the weather elements. The available solutions that can add more storage to your property are carports, garden sheds and garages. When it comes to storing vehicles (cars, caravans. boats) carports or garages are best suited as they have the required door opening and height to accommodate such a vehicles.
Carports are great however, they do not provide the flexibility that the garages do as they are not enclosed and cannot be locked. I love carports and they are absolutely one of the best solutions to protect cars and other vehicles from the weather elements. However if you need something lockable, then you might need to consider garages.Free standing garages are nowadays made out of steel and the 2 popular options of getting one is getting a DIY garage kit or getting one built buy a licensed company.
Briefly going through these options, the DIY kit is most suited to individuals with a reasonable level of DIY skills. You can pick up a pre-engineered garage kit for a relatively low price and you can build it yourself. You can save thousands on tradesman however, it will take some of your time indeed to do the work. Some people get the kits and get a tradesman to build it for them. It is still cheaper most of the time than giving the whole job to a builder as they will mark up the building for you as well and you are more likely to pick up the building cheaper online for example.The other solution is to get someone out show them the area you want it to go and ask them to give you a quote for the project.
Either way, it is a good idea to do your research before you make your decision.
