Do you need some extra space to park your car, store your things, do odd jobs or put in an extra fridge or freezer? Then building a garage or installing a garage is the solution for you! Having a wooden garage built clearly has many advantages, but building a garage also requires a lot of work. To be well prepared, there are a few important things to consider before building a garage.
Choose the material
If you want to build a wooden garage, you will naturally first think about the material you want to use for your garage. A wooden garage has an important advantage over concrete garages: the price per m2 is a lot lower. In addition, obtaining a building permit for wood garages is much cheaper. And don’t you agree that a wooden garage looks more stylish and gives that little bit of extra character to your home?
There is also a difference in quality between different types of wood that can be used when building a garage. For example, there are types of wood that are a lot less sturdy and more susceptible to weathering. Woodpro has the best price-quality ratio if you want to build a garage. This is because the wood species we use come from northern regions with a cold climate. Due to the cold climate, the trees grow slower, so the annual rings are closer together. This results in sturdy wood with a strong structure.
Determine the wall thickness of the wood
Besides the material, it is also good to pay attention to the wall thickness of the wood. Woodpro has garages with wall thicknesses of 28 mm and 44 mm. When building a garage, it is wise to think about your garage’s purpose before you start. Do you only want to store your car? Then a wall thickness of 28 mm is sufficient. But do you also want to store things and do DIY in your garage? Then you should choose a wall thickness of 44 mm, because with this thickness the temperature inside will drop less quickly.

Permit for your garage
Finally, it is wise to find out whether you need a permit to build your wooden garage. In fact, you may need a permit if you are going to build a garage. Especially if the garage will be placed at the front or side of your house or you want to make a canopy attached to the garage. For this, go to your municipality to find out about a possible permit.
