There is so many different uses people have for their garages today other than parking their cars. Its maybe just for storing old house hold junk or somewhere to work on a do it yourself project. Well whatever it is one thing most garages have in common will be a cold hard and uninviting concrete floor. If the floor is very old it will no doubt be cracked and broken and giving off high amounts of dust that just gets everywhere. On top of this add stains from engine oil leaks most people will be glad if the floor is covered up by a load of junk.
The Structure of the framed garage should start with waterproof bottom plates secured by anchor bolts in the concrete slab. The walls should be built with 2 by 4 studs 16 inches apart to guarantee a structurally strong wall and 8 feet high. Rafters should be 2 by 6 studs 16 inches apart to support snow and other elements. Make sure the rafters are securely embedded into the top plates of the walls with the bird mouth cut method. Once the sheathing is installed on the walls and roof vinyl siding is the most recommended siding as it is the most maintenance free and economical in the market.
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.
So what do you look for overall when buying a garage door for your home? First you want to look for the ones that match The daily needs of your home. Consider how many times you will be using them. Also consider how many times you will need to have them open and shut. In other words think about what the daily use of the doors will be. If you are going to store your car in the garage then you better get sturdy ones that will stand the test of time. All of these factors are an important part of choosing the correct garage door for your home.
