Modern homes have gone a long way in terms of style and function rolled into one amazing place of abode. Thus the usual and conventional home ideas observed in the past are long passee and irrelevant in contemporary times. Just as in the cases of home garages it is no longer confined to the traditional car storage and parking area. As an integral part of the house it is considered an asset that may boost the market value of the property depending on the creativity and resourcefulness of the home owner in upgrading his garage. Now more than ever is the perfect time to think of ways to transform your idle and space consuming home car garage into a more livable and functional space.
In todays homes where the maximizing of space is of the utmost importance the garage is no longer a place relegated for forgotten storage. The modern garage has a number of roles - everything from workshop to car maintenance. But temperature control - expected and taken for granted in our homes - has rarely kept pace in this additional space. And the result is often an uncomfortable place that is vulnerable to all weather conditions; certainly not conducive to an effective work environment. Luckily with an efficient and safe garage heater you can utilize this space year round and comfortably complete any projects at hand.
If you are thinking about building a detached framed garage with garage plans it is helpful to know the best construction features to use. For best results and to build the best garage plan it is important to use a 6 bag mix of concrete when you pour your garage slab. The 6 stands for 6 bags of concrete per yard mixed. Anything less than a 6 bag mix is not strong enough. Compacting the 4 inches of crushed stone is also important. Compacting the crushed stone assures that the concrete will be sealed air tight and will eliminate any cracking in the concrete slab. Before the concrete is poured be sure to use wire mesh reinforcement this mesh should lay over the crushed stone.
Then came the desire for ease of use. People wanted to make them able to be opened with less fuss. This is the place that garage door openers started. They used to simply lift up on a slide. After that came the rollers. Finally the garage door of today arrived with the electric opener. This allowed ease of use and a fashionable look to the home. Over the years things have changed. The original style of garage door openers have been mostly the same though since the beginning of the garage door. Safety issues have been the main consideration of modern garage doors. Their ability to be safe and still remain useful is very important.
Jammed Doors: Do you feel like your garage door has turned into a block of ice and wouldnt move? Cold weather can do this to your door. The moisture during the winter season causes the wood on the door to swell and also freezes the tracks. The solution is to increase the heat in the garage for about 30 minutes to loosen the tracks and the door as well. The heat will take away the moisture. If there is no heating equipment in the garage use a blow drier or vacuum blower to do the job. After opening the door clear the ice and water that has collected beneath the door.
