An oak framed garage is a practical, cost effective alternative to a stonework structure. Not only is it functional, but the sleek and contemporary design look stunning.
Oak framed structures for garages are often a lot more flexible than traditional stone built garages that are incorporated into a house or other dwellings. All oak framed garages have the ability to be designed and built to your specific requirements in order to help your day to day life.
Designed to suit you
Oak framed garages can be adapted to suit any taste or requirement, be it just for extra storage or to park your treasured cars. All garages can be adapted to suit your needs, from 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 bay garages depending on just how many cars you need to store!Garages can also become two storey buildings, allowing you to store your cars on the lower level and add storage space, home office or even a gym on the high level, they really are that versatile.
Garages can either be open fronted meaning no doors are fitted, or fitted with a range of doors, from a traditional garage style to wide opening doors. Allowing the flexibility to decide exactly how much coverage and protection you need in your garage.
This also provides you with flexibility when needing to get cars or different sizes into your garage. A garage can be designed to fit around a variety of cars and models so you can be sure that your car will easily fit in, meaning that you no longer need to worry about buying a car that is too big for the garage. When practicality is as important as aesthetics, you can achieve exactly what you have in mind.
Oak framed garages also create a highly useful storage space for tools or additional garden storage. Creating a bespoke garage provides you with the flexibility to add enough space to allow you to store an array of tools, furniture and utensils. Elements such as log stores, worktops and joinery areas can all be incorporated into the build of the garage, allowing every aspect of the garage to be maximised.
Oak built garages are a great investment. Regular maintenance prolongs the lifespan of any oak building as long as it is treated with natural treatments. Oak is a very popular and durable timber for exterior joinery and outbuildings as the wood ages naturally over a number of years.
Green oak doesn’t need maintaining. It can be left ‘bare’ or untreated and will weather naturally into its environment, turning silver grey in colour and as it dries and starts to shrink, shakes and splits will appear. To some people this is what it’s all about, others prefer to keep it looking fresh and the same colour it was when it was fitted. This can be achieved by applying a clear oil with a UV protection. It adds relatively little in the way of protecting the oak and is used mainly for aesthetic appearances.
