Choosing the right garage for your home can seem like a minefield. When space is not a problem, do you choose a double garage, or an extra height version? Then there is the choice of materials, which include concrete, timber or brick. Specialists Dencroft Garages are leading experts in creating superb concrete garages and have listed their top five reasons for choosing that material over other types.
Firstly, concrete garages are one of the safest options available on the market, and are regarded as one of the best for storing expensive tools and equipment because of their protection credentials. Concrete has strong chemical properties that make it excellent at withstanding the elements and prevention against damage from humans. In a recent survey undertake by local police forces, they were seen as a large deterrent against thieves and vandalism, because there was no chance of obtaining the items from within.
Secondly, constructing a concrete garage is a very quick process, with most garages completed within one day. Because Dencroft’s concrete garages are made in full length panels, the overall cost is also not as expensive as other options which have longer build times, including brick garages. These panels can be connected extremely quickly and there are minimal problems with alignment issues that you can have with brick garages.
Concrete garages also last a long time. Despite costing a bit more than other options, their life expectancy more than outweighs the rest of the competition. If a concrete garage is maintained well, it could last up to 50 years, almost double that of other options available on the current market. This could, if you intend to stay in your house for a long time, alter your perception on the overall cost of the garage.
A concrete garage us also very adaptable, with the ability to add on additional sections at a later date. If you decide to expand and make an outside office, need to put in a window or create other rooms for storage space, these can all be done very easily through the panel process. This then enables all concrete garages to be made bespoke and can offer a garage that meets not only the needs of yourself, but your family, work and perhaps friends as well. This added to the ability to ad lean to and apex roofs means your garage is no longer just a rectangular shell but can be made into almost any shape you require. Because the sizes of the panels are also unlimited, the options are endless.
A final reason to buy a concrete garage is because they look good. This feature can sometimes be overlooked, but concrete garages can add appeal to your home. They are available in a range of different finishes and at Dencroft they can use a finish that could well match in with your current home as well.
