Construction Details:

Below are the specifications of our portable Garage Sheds using only quality materials:

Garage Framing:  Engineered 2×4 studs are spaced every 16” on centre.  We double the wall studs wherever our siding has a seam, so that both sections of siding will have a full stud width to be fastened to.  Exterior walls are sheeted with Premium LP Smart Panel Siding, then painted with high quality paint designed especially for the outdoor shed industry.

Garage Roofing:  Rafters are spaced every 24”.  The roof is then sheeted with OSB roof sheeting and then sheeted with 30-year 29 gauge high quality metal roofing or residential grade architectural shingles.

Engineered Flooring:  Garage Shed flooring construction includes 4’x6’ pressure treated skids that are notched at 12” on centre to ensure consistent floor joist spacing.  Recessing and toenailing the joists in the notches lock them in place ensuring the shed can be loaded, unloaded, and moved repeatedly without any warping of the floor system.

The diamond-plate door threshold cap creates a solid step that can handle constant abuse form foot traffic and equipment wheels.  It prevents wear and tear on the exposed edges of the floor decking at the entrance of the garage, ensuring years of use without cracking, splintering or delaminating.

Garage Package Alberta FAQ

What is a Garage Package?

What is a Garage Package?

A garage package is a pre-designed and pre-fabricated set of materials needed to construct a custom garage or a standard garage.

Packages include all the necessary components such as walls, vinyl siding, roof, doors, garage doors, windows, hardware, and sometimes even the foundation materials, depending on the supplier.  These packages can be for a single car garage or a double garage.

Complete garage packages are designed to simplify the garage construction process by providing all the necessary materials in one convenient package.

What Sizes do Garage Packages Come in?

Garage packages are available in a variety of sizes, styles, and configurations to meet the needs of different customers. Some packages may be designed for basic storage needs, while others may be more elaborate and feature additional space for a workshop or living area.

Many suppliers offer garage packages with package options that can be customized to fit the specific needs of the customer, including the choice of materials, colours, and accessories.  There are also various new garage sizes to choose from

This allows customers to create a garage that is tailored to their needs and preferences, while still benefiting from the convenience of a pre-fabricated package.

What Additional Things can you Do with a Garage?

Obviously, a garage is intended to be a place to park your car, but as you can imagine a garage can be used in various applications.

  • Outdoor storage is the first big thing, you can use the building itself as a large storage shed.
  • Additional living space is another option from a new garage that people like, from a garden suite, to a loft hangout to a man cave there are lots of options.
  • Specific garage features like a new smart garage door opener, heated flooring and tool storage. You can also add a parking pad near for additional parking space.

Is it Cheaper to Build a Garage or Buy a Kit?

Is it cheaper to build a New Garage or buy a Garage kit?

Buying a garage kit will cost less than building a custom garage if it means you’re doing all the labor. Simple kits generally cost less than $10,000 and can take as little as a day to put together with a little help from friends or family.

The cost of building a garage or buying a kit will depend on various factors such as the size of the garage, materials used, labor costs, and location. In general, buying a garage kit can be cheaper than building a garage from scratch, but it also depends on the specific circumstances.

What Materials Come in a Typical Garage Package?

A garage kit typically includes all the necessary materials, such as lumber, siding, roofing, and hardware, along with detailed instructions on how to assemble the structure. The advantage of a garage kit is that it eliminates the need to source materials and design plans from scratch, which can save time and money.

On the other hand, building a garage from scratch allows for more customization and flexibility in design, which can be important if you have specific requirements for the garage. However, building a garage from scratch will require more time, effort, and expertise, and may result in higher labour costs.

Ultimately, the decision on whether to build a garage from scratch or buy a kit will depend on your budget, skill level, and suit your needs for the garage. It’s always a good idea to research and compare costs and options before making a decision.

Is a Shed Big Enough to Fit a Car?

When selecting a garage shed size to accommodate a car, it’s important to consider not only the dimensions of the vehicle but also additional space for maneuvering, opening doors, and storage. Here are some recommended garage shed sizes to fit a car:

  1. Single Car Garage Shed:
    • Dimensions: Approximately 12′ x 20′ or 14′ x 24′
    • This size provides enough space for a standard-sized car and allows some additional room for storage or movement.
  2. Standard Two-Car Garage Shed:
    • Dimensions: Approximately 20′ x 20′ or 22′ x 24′
    • This size comfortably accommodates two standard-sized cars side by side and includes space for opening doors and moving around the vehicles.
