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.
The door to your garage works simply and has only two functions: to open and close. But one day it might stop out of the blue. The problems people often encounter with their garage doors are also very simple in nature. Fortunately most problems with these doors can be fixed without the help of a professional. Do-It-Yourself Tips for Garage Door Repair Quick Fix: If the door isnt opening or closing as usual then it is time for some maintenance. Examine the rollers and tracks looking for loose spots and signs of damage. If you havent cleaned the door in a long time and they look dusty take some grease and brush the tracks along with a lubricant. This should get your door back up and running. If this doesnt fix the problem contact a door installer.
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.
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.
