Wooden garages: how to choose the best option?

If you decide to install a holiday home on your plot, with the idea to spend there a large part of your free time, a garage should become an integral part of the project. Although the main function of wooden garages – to protect the car from rain – can easily be performed by the car porch, it is difficult to change the benefits of it in winter.

To make the investments bring maximum benefits, you must think carefully about the design and choose the most suitable garage option in your case.

Types of the garage: how to choose the right one?

When you start considering which garage might be best for you, we first recommend assessing your essential needs:

- How many cars are you going to keep in your garage all the time?

- Do you plan to store extra items in the garage?

After all, if you have only one car in your family, building a double garage usually doesn’t make sense. However, if the garage will serve you as a storage space as well, the installation of a larger option could make much more sense.

Single wooden garages

We can consider this type of garage to be the most common option on the construction market, providing comprehensive protection for one car at any time of the year. The aim when building this type of garage is usually to reduce the space to the maximum, making this car protection option cheaper.

Single garages with storage

A particularly common mistake is the belief that you can store larger items used in a particular season in a single garage with your car. The truth is, if you intend to store more than just a car in the garage, it should only be installed with a built-in storage room. This way you will have enough space to store your belongings and maintain order, which is especially important in the case of a single garage.

Single garages with porches

When a garage with a porch is installed, larger items are usually stored underneath, making it extremely difficult to maintain order in the yard. For this reason, we recommend planning a special place for storing things inside the garage. A garage with a porch is better to choose if you have two cars in the family or relatives often visit you.

Double wooden garages

This type is most recommended when you have two or more cars in your family. A larger garage can also become a storage place for less frequently used items, such as a lawnmower, or additional vehicles.

Why choose a wooden garage instead of a car porch?

Based on our experience in the design and construction of wooden buildings, we share three main advantages why to choose wooden garages instead of car porches:

  • it assures comprehensive car protection

While a car porch could be a solution good enough for the protection of vehicles in the warm season, it is not as good for the winter. In particular, the winter conditions that change rain and sun during the cold season are not as friendly to a vehicle parked outdoors. Secondly, starting the engine at low temperatures every day just for a trip of shorter distances does not even allow the engine to warm up properly. In the long run, this affects the technical condition of the car.

  • it saves time in winter

The decision to start the car a little earlier in winter can be a good way out of the situation. However, the consequences of such a decision are not positive – it increases the car's fuel consumption as well as the pollution. The daily wait for the car to warm up at low temperature and unfreezing of windows takes our precious time.

  • it assures constant use of the garage

It is not hard to understand that the main reason why wooden garages are often replaced by a porch – is the lower installation cost. However, the porch is far from being as versatile. For instance, a wooden garage can easily become a place for a car and have integrated storage space for larger, less commonly used items. To sum up, choosing the most suitable wooden garage option will be much easier if you evaluate all the benefits of the garage and your personal needs. Depending on how many cars you have in your family and whether you need storage space, wooden garages can be equipped to suit all your needs. We offer single and double wooden garages, as well as garages with a porch and storage room inside.
