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.
Another option in terms of a garage heater is to extend your heating duct work into the garage itself thus connecting it to the internal temperature of your home. For those who use their garage as another room in their home this is the most cost-effective and efficient option. A modern and efficient garage heater can add instant space to your home allowing you to use your garage as you would any other room in your house. With proper temperature control you can enjoy your garage no matter what the temperature outside your front door.
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.
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.
Although lightweight these tiles are still more than adequate to support cars and even light trucks. So even if you dont replace that junk in the garage for a home gym rest assured you can still park your car in there.
