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.
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.
And of course the roof should consist of 1 roof vent per 1 car in garage. Vents allow the lumber to breathe and not rot and buckle. If the garage door is over 16 feet in span it is recommended to use laminated veneer lumber as a header which supports the weight of the roof and overhead door. The header is installed above the garage door opening. A ½ horsepower garage door opener with two remote controls is also recommended to make life a bit more convenient instead of opening the overhead door manually.
A carriage style door with its graceful curves looks terrific on a home with curved windows. A Spanish villa style house will look fabulous with a new rustic looking garage door! A modern contemporary styled home begs for a sleek look incorporating more glass or wide horizontal panels as opposed to boxier square panels. Garage doors come in a plethora of styles; Colonial Tudor Mediterranean Country Spanish and many others.
It is also advisable to take into consideration the company that you choose to install your door as well as the type of door. Not all can fit into every situation and that ultimately means that you have to get the opinion of a qualified company to analyze the circumstances and come up with a garage door solution that will meet your needs and at a reasonable cost. After getting the right company to install your garage door it is highly recommended that you keep your modern garage door well maintained on a regular basis so that you can enjoy the services of the garage door for longer.
