Double Garages – a great addition to your home.
They are a real multi-purpose garage – You get that extra advantage of being able to protect 2 vehicles or you can split the space up to use as a garage and workshop, or use it storage garage.
Even though it may seem that all double garages are basically the same, there are some differences. There are advantages you can find if you spend a little bit of time finding what will work best for you.
Big range of sizes
A well known standard size for a double garage is 6m x 6m, but did you know that you can get different widths and lengths?
For example, instead of a 6m length you could look at 7m. This is great if you have a larger car or you want a bit of bench space or storage. You can also have a wider garage if you want more space to open the door of your car, without worrying about clunking the other car (how often does this happen).
Instead of nominating the height of the shed first, we like to work back from that. We need to find out what you need as a clearance, so your cars, boat etc can comfortably drive in. The height of your roller door often determines the height of the shed. This is because you have to allow for the drum mechanism of the door at the top.
Select the right sized roller door for your Double Garage
As briefly mentioned above, getting the right height and also width for your door/s will make it a lot easier in the long run. You can talk with us about what size will work for you.
Your double garage will include everything
When you’re buying double garages, make sure that everything is included. This means right down to the guttering, downpipes and fasteners. Double garages from Excalibur will include everything component you need.
A quality garage made from Australian Steel
It’s important to consider this for several reasons:
Known Strength – made in Australia
Known Quality – tested in Australia
Locally based Warranties – in Australia
Buildings that comply with current engineering standards
Determine whether your double garage will include the engineering drawings. If it doesn’t, your chances of getting it approved are slim and your extra costs will be substantial. You need the engineering included. All our double garages come with current engineering.
There are other factors and some will depend on your own site, so please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Thanks very much
