7 Types of Garages and Sheds

March 10, 2020

A homeowner initially buys a house mainly for a worry-free shelter for their future family. It is a place to go after work or play. They sleep and relax in it when they get days off. If they are lucky, they find the partner of their dreams, and they start a family. As the number of household members goes up, so do storage needs. Whether it is for a new car or an additional room for other things, building up new garages and sheds are the perfect solution. It can be detached or attached to the house and made out of wood, steel, or both. It is important to hire reputable garage contractors when adding or changing an existing garage.

Online research yields a lot of companies that make garages and sheds. But there are seven common types specifically designed for homes.

 

  1. Single Garages

A responsible car owner should take care of their car. The weather – and even the toys of the neighbourhood kids – can damage both the exterior and interior if left unprotected. Unlike other things, one cannot bring their cars inside the house to shield it from the cold, heat, and accidental bumps from random people. So you must ensure that the vehicle is safe from all of those by having a single garage.

 

  1. Carports

If one is worried about the budget, then a carport may be the answer to this problem. It is a roof with no walls, so it is more economical than a regular garage because of its open-frame. Best of all, the structure can be adjusted should he want something more significant than a traditional single port. You can store any vehicle beneath it – car, trailer, van, or boat. And it can be customised depending on the need.

 

  1. Double Garages

By tradition, this is for the person who has two cars. But some decide to have one built even if they have only one vehicle. They use the rest of the garages and sheds to store other stuff, such as tools, boxed items, and farming equipment.

 

  1. Triple Garages

As the name suggests, triple garages are for the people who have two or three cars. But like double garages, it is more than just car space. It can also be multi-functional and can be used as storage for both vehicles and things you cannot store inside the house.

 

  1. Farm Sheds

Rural housing has different needs. Both large and small farmhouses will often need additional storage capacity for their agricultural tools and machinery. Farm sheds are more durable and practical, which are perfect for all farming needs.

 

  1. Open Bay Sheds

One cannot merely park a tractor anywhere unprotected from the elements. It can get damaged and rusty due to the heat of the sun, coldness of snow, and moisture from the rain. Open bay sheds are perfect for large farming equipment. It can also provide a tacking place that is safe for horses and other animals.

 

  1. American Barns

Having three sheds in one is a dream come true for those who are in dire need of additional storage and parking space. An American barn is an answer to the storage problems of the homeowner. Regardless of the name, this has a stylish interior with three doors. It has a bigger, middle central doorway, which gives it a more attractive look.

 

Storage space problems are now a thing of the past with the assistance of contractors specializing in customised garages or sheds offered by Colonial Barns and Sheds, ensuring that you can find a tailored solution at an affordable price.
