What are the benefits of a wooden garage?
Like all garages, one of its main purposes is to store vehicles as well as providing space to store car accessories such as winter tyres, motor oils and garden tools. Wooden garages are also preferable to other types of summer houses for use as a workshop due to the large garage door which allows for the easy movement of large materials and machines in and out.
Wooden timber garages are also more stylish than other building types. The use of cedar wood as the main construction material means they are able to integrate naturally into any garden. Accompany it on either side by bushes or trees and it will immediately be more akin to a Canadian log cabin than a mundane garage.
Do you need planning permission for a wooden car garage?
Like most garden rooms, wooden garages are considered ‘temporary structures’ meaning planning permission is generally not required. There are other rules and regulations to be aware of before building a wooden garage, however, including ensuring the building is at least a metre from the nearest boundary. It’s also worth remembering that if they are open from two sides or more and have a floor area of more than 30 sq. metres, wooden garages will require building regulations approval.
How long do wooden garages last?
Even when not properly looked after, and subjected to the worst weather conditions, our robust tongue-and-groove construction ensures Cedar Garden Rooms wooden garages can last up to 10 years. But when maintained appropriately, with good weatherproof paint and routine maintenance, their life can be as long as 25 years.
What garden building maintenance advice should I be aware of?
The best way to ensure your garage lasts is through regular maintenance and following these guidelines:
Keep it clean
It’s important to keep your wooden garage clean so that re-staining the wood becomes a less regular task. This can be done simply by using a cloth, hot water and soap to remove any dust or dirt that can make the wood or windows look dull and worn.
Re-sand & refinish
Whilst re-sanding only needs to be done every 5 years, it is a way to maintain its quality and keep your wooden garage looking just like the first day it was built.
Garage door lubrication
It is advisable to check the mechanisms on the wooden garage door at regular intervals and ensuring they are adequately oiled whilst taking care not to over-oil as this attracts dirt and can affect the performance of the mechanisms.
Repainting your garage will keep it looking fresh and shield it from much of the damage caused by the elements.
