With so many different types of structures and materials available which do you choose?
A garage is a special part of a house or building designed to provide some space for certain
things like cars. They can be traced back to 1896, the year when Henry
Ford invented the Quadracycle. He found it very
hard to find a place where he can keep his invention. In addition, he
found it very hard to take his invention out for trial or a test drive.
He was then forced to destroy a part of his house to accommodate the
size of his invention. Thus, the use of a garage began. People started to build houses that can accommodate a
space for a car. Different types have been made ever since.
Some of the different types are made from wood, concrete, metal or
timber framed with different cladding types.
abundance of different materials available, one may find it confusing to find the best
type to suit their needs. Let�s discuss some of the different types

most family homes, They are easier to find to these days because of the
availability of its primary component, metal.
They have less ongoing maintenance without need to undergo any kind of
treatment. However, there are notable disadvantages in having a metal
one. This type of Building provides poor insulation. They do not
provide much comfort in colder days. Also, these they are susceptible to
fast deterioration due to rust from condensation. Unlike timber, they are not
biodegradable. They are also very difficult to modify their design .
With respect to production, while metals are easier to find than timber,
the former requires more energy to process than the latter. While it is
true that metal ones are popular, it is also true that their
popularity is starting to decline each passing day. Due to the
disadvantages listed here. They could quickly become a
thing of the past.

maintenance. However they do tend to be more damp and cold and can
suffer from condensation like the metal ones.
