If you are considering building a new garage, then you may want to consider timber / wooden garage. They are a lot more affordable than an equivalent brick version, and are far faster easier to construct.
This a brick or concrete type garage you will normally need deeper foundations and thicker concrete slab to be used to hold the additional weight of those structures . This all adds a lot more cost and time to your project .
Building a garge workhop in brick will need to be inspected by your local council building inspector , again at extra cost to you .
But have a garage built from timber is a far more simple and stright forward process. You slab or base can be much thinner , thus saving you on expensive concrete and digging out all that spoil that will need to go in a skip !
Built from solid timber , no chip board or low garde OSB used in any of our timber garages , they can withstand all the British weather can throw at them. With various sizes available from 8ft wide , 10ft wide , 12ft wide they are not only big enough for most average cars nowdays , but also a lot of storage as well.
The flexibility of wooden / timber garages means that they can be placed most anywhere, and best of all, they look a lot more welcoming and attractive if treated well.
There are three main type of timber - wooden garages, all of which have their own pros and cons, and it is recommended that you go through them in detail to ensure you get the one which fits your needs the best.
If you are not totally sure what size you want, then plan for the future and buy bigger than what you think you need if you have the space avalable
Sectional Wooden Garages
These are by far the easiest to construct and are the biggest sellers in the UK. The wood is available in three thicknesses; 12mm, 22mm and 28mm. You need to decide what and when you will be using the garage for when deciding on the thickness of the wood. If it is something that you will just be parking the car in the odd occasion , then the 12mm version of this garage
will usually do.
However, if you intend to be working in the garage over the colder months, then 28mm will help keep in the heat much better , but you may also wish to insulate and line the inside of the 12mm or any thickness in fact to make the building practical for all year round use.
We have 3 popular stock widths of Wooden Garage thye being the 8ft Wide the 10ft Wide
or The 12ft Wide
You also need to take into account what you will be using it for. If you are likely to be installing electrics, and having all kinds of shelving on the walls, then the sturdier 28mm is much better, and safer. The only downside to these garages is that they come without a base, so that is something you must take into consideration. The cold and dampt that is natuaraly created with a concrete slab may need some thought , but a quick troll on the net we are sure will find you a solution
You can also have the option of insulated timber walls, which may be a better option for people who are intending on spending a lot of time in the garage during the colder months. As mentioned earlier, you need to make sure what you want the garage for. If it is not for parking a car in, then a timber workshop
may be the best option. Sectional wooden garages are also the easiest if you wish to make any alterations, this is another reason that makes them so popular. As chopping and cutting into brickwork can be a major task .
Interlocking Wooden Garages
Unlike our sectional Timber Garages , interlocking garages are constructed in a completely different way, and it is difficult to make alterations to them, but not impossible. Interlocking garages can take a lot longer to build, and if you struggle with normal DIY, then these are not for you.We do how ever offer our erecting service at and extra fee.

As we all know time is money! These automated notching machines cost over £250,000 each so are really designed for making lots of the same thing. The time stoping that process is what you are paying for not as some people seam to think the amount of timber being used , as it may well be the case that a smaller yet custom made garage may cost you considerably more than a larger stock size.
