A new garage can be a very useful addition to your home as well as adding extra value to your property. However there are many factors to take into consideration when choosing a new garage: type (apex or pent), size, available space, exterior finish, detached or attached, what it will be used for etc.
Type of Garage
It is important that your new garage does not detract from your home and in fact the right garage should add kerb appeal. The type of garage that is right for you will depend on the space you have available and its proximity to your home.
Pent garages are currently the most popular choice of concrete garage as they are offer good value for money and can easily be butted up against your home when space is tight.
Apex garages are also a great choice and come in a range of different sizes and roof styles to blend in with your home. Lidget Compton’s range come with a choice of roof tile colours and roof pitch e.g. 12.5 º, 15° or the 25°
Size of Garage
The size of garage obviously depends on the space available and the planning permission rules in your area. An experienced new garage contractor will be able to advice you on this. It is also worth thinking about what you are planning on using your garage for and making sure that it is big enough to cater for any future use plans.
