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.
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.
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 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.
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.
