Tips for Adding a Detached Garage to Your Home

If you’re looking for extra storage space or a place to work on projects, you may wish to consider adding a detached garage to your home. This can be a great way to add value to your property and give you the extra space you need. However, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind when planning to add a detached garage. 

Consider the Location

The first thing you’ll need to do is decide where you want to build your detached garage. For the sake of convenience, it is important to choose a location that’s close to your home. You’ll also need to make sure the area is level and has good drainage. If you’re not sure where to build, it’s a good idea to talk to a contractor or a professional who specializes in home additions.

Get the Right Permits

Before you start building your detached garage, you may need to get the proper permits from your city or county. This will ensure that your garage is up to code and meets all the necessary safety requirements. Failure to get the proper permits can result in hefty fines, so it’s important to do your research and make sure you’re following your local laws.

Choose the Right Materials

When it comes to detached garages, there are a variety of materials you can choose from. Wood is a popular choice because it’s relatively inexpensive and easy to work with. However, wood is also susceptible to rot and termites, so it’s important to choose a high-quality option. Metal is another popular choice for detached garages because it’s durable and low-maintenance. Your garage shed expert at Heritage Building Co. can help you choose the right fit for your needs.
