Buying a prefabricated garage is an important choice and for this reason, before proceeding, you need to clarify so as not to be unprepared.The prefab garage is the most suitable solution to keep cars and motorcycles safe in case there is not enough space and you do not have a suitable place. There are different types of prefabricated garages, in different materials , so you can choose according to your needs. The choice must be made on the basis of the strength of the material , the size of the prefab garage and the space available to place it.
Why buy a prefab garage
Our homes in most cases have only one covered parking space available : thus they do not allow the shelter of several vehicles and often one is forced to choose between using the garage for the car or as a storage room for tools and other objects. bulky.
The living spaces are also smaller and smaller , especially in the city, and for this reason they do not have the necessary space to store their belongings or to carry out those small jobs that would dirty the house and that require a dedicated environment.
For this reason, more and more often we resort to the choice of buying a prefabricated garage. But what types are there on the market?
Types of garages
Prefabricated garages are distinguished by the construction materials, which can be mainly wood, concrete or sheet metal.
Prefabricated wooden garages are structures which, if of adequate thickness, guarantee good thermal insulation and excellent weather resistance. However, they are generally quite expensive, and require regular maintenance over time in order to maintain their aesthetic standards.
Prefabricated in concrete
The precast concrete elements are built in the factory and delivered assembled or partially assembled to the customer. Equipped with high insulation, they do not need any particular maintenance, except to refresh their appearance with plastering and painting. However, these solutions provide reduced customization possibilities, with the risk of price increases when special requests are made.
Prefabricated garages in galvanized or insulated sheet metal
Prefabricated garages in galvanized or insulated sheet metal are the cheapest, with or without good insulation depending on the needs. They do not require maintenance, as their painting makes them invulnerable to water and rust.
In the case of the Bedendo Prefabricated it will be possible to choose the finishes and the coverage, making them perfect even in elegant or natural contexts.
How to choose the most suitable type of sheet metal?
More and more often in this way we opt for solutions in sheet metal, galvanized or insulated, a choice dictated by the advantages that we have illustrated in our previous article :
- Security against theft or vandalism.
- Practicality of a covered space in which to deposit materials or carry out small jobs without dirtying the house.
- Simplicity of assembly and speed of realization.
- Customization based on the needs of aesthetics and space.
- No maintenance.
Going in this direction, you will be faced with a decision: galvanized sheet metal or greater insulation?
Box in galvanized sheet
The galvanized sheet boxes are light and resistant and represent the most economical solution. They are the ideal product for quick assembly and disassembly and when the purpose is essentially to shelter cars, motorcycles, bicycles or rafts. In these cases, insulation is not essential, as the prefabricated building will be used essentially to protect one’s vehicles from the elements.
The insulated boxes are perfect if you prefer a thermally insulated space that matches the surrounding environment. The sandwich panels are composed of layers of sheet metal and polyurethane, which better withstand atmospheric agents and therefore resist over time, without requiring maintenance. If your purpose is to use the garage as a small workshop, this will be the most suitable choice: it will allow one or more people to stay even during the cold season, protecting from temperatures.
