Timber Garages - Why so popular?

The wooden garage is becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners looking to develop and invest in their properties. When looking to keep their cars in a dry, secure place, increase storage space for DIY equipment or even build a work shop for their business - homeowners are regularly opting for bespoke timber garages instead of concrete or metal alternatives.

The ease of installation for timber garages makes them a serious contender when deciding how invest in your property. These durable and long lasting structures can be installed quickly with minimal tools, making it possible to build your garage in as little time period as you need! As the installation process of a timber garage is relatively simple, it makes it likely that you'll be able to start using your new space in just a couple of days.

Wooden garages also require less foundation than their concrete counterparts - so not only are they cheaper option from a materials perspective, but they speed up construction time too! Potentially saving hundreds if not thousands of pounds.


The Value Of A Timber Garage

While offering an aesthetic, and in turn potential financial value to a property - with a little care, they can be much easier to preserve and maintain than metal or concrete garages, especially where your build may be susceptible to exposure from the elements. Rust and corrosion, is often a very costly fix, and can look incredibly unsightly if left to develop untreated. 

Though treating the timber with a suitable preservative will ensure your garage lasts for decades, if any section experiences damage, it can easily be replaced. Simply remove the damaged piece of timber and replace with new boards - quite different than concrete or metal structures which often require maintenance work on an entire structure before being put back to use again.


Wood is also a fantastic, natural insulator. This makes the temperature in your garage or workshop much more stable and potentially cuts down on energy costs for heating or cooling! If insulation is important to maintain during winter months when outside temperatures may drop below freezing, timber offers a much more controllable environment than can be said for metal or concrete structures.
