Custom doors are the most expensive garage doors. These are the doors that are designed to the home owners specifications and can be built to fit odd shaped or custom garages. Typically these doors are made of high quality hardwoods and incorporate lots of architectural interest. Get online and visit garage door manufacturers - many of the larger companies offer images that allow you to see what homes similar to yours would look like with a variety of different door designs.
The wire mesh will reinforce the strength of concrete. The garage slab should be poured with 4 inches of concrete by garage builders. It is recommended to wait at least 8 days for the concrete to cure before any garage building process is started on the concrete slab. The slab should be slightly pitched one direction to drain water in the appropriate direction of the designated garage property.
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.
Larger garage spaces or a garage that is used frequently as a work space may warrant a larger more comprehensive garage heater. These units are powered by natural or propane gas and come in the form of standing units or overhead systems that distribute warm air to the entire space. While a gas garage heater is more efficient for larger areas they must be properly vented. Because this garage heater uses gas there are fumes that must be vented to the outside. Further it is wise to have a gas garage heater professionally installed to ensure optimum safety.
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.
