Why Build A Wood Garage

When building a new garage, there are many things to consider. One of the first things you probably think about is what type of material to use for the actual structure. Two common materials for garages are wood and metal. While you may think metal is the most popular, wood garages are becoming more popular due to their advantages. Here are just a few of the benefits of a wood garage.

Authentic Style

Building a wooden garage allows you to be more creative with your garage. There are limited design and color options for metal garages, but wooden garages offer nearly endless choices. In addition, wooden garages are more customizable. A wooden garage allows you to change the paint color and update more easily. If you want to choose a unique garage design or are looking for a specific design to match the architecture of your home, wood is your best option.

Easy to Build

If you are planning to build a garage yourself, wood is likely your best option. Metal garages may seem easier to put together because the metal comes in large sheets. However, working with metal requires specific tools and skills. Most people are far more familiar with wood construction than with metalwork. You could save yourself a lot of headache by choosing a wooden garage.

Good Insulator

Wood is naturally a good insulator. Building a timber garage will keep things inside your garage warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. A metal garage, on the other hand, will need additional insulation to keep the inside at a comfortable temperature. The natural insulating properties of wooden garages mean you will save money on your energy bill. The greater energy efficiency of wooden garages also means that you will be reducing your carbon footprint.

More Attractive

Few people would argue that metal garages are more attractive than wood garages. A wooden garage will add elegance and beauty to your home. The natural look of wood looks especially nice for homes with a front garden or expansive lawn. With a wooden garage, not only will you get to enjoy its beauty, but it will also improve the curb appeal of your home. This means that your property value will increase.
