We recommend a concrete base comprising of-
6 inches of compacted hardcore
Damp proof membrane
4 inch minimum concrete slab, however your builder may recommend deeper depending on your ground condition and garden levels
Large bases may benefit from using re-enforced concrete especially if heavy vehicles and machinery are to go inside.
A single course of semi-engineering bricks (with 3 large round holes in so we can drill through the holes in the brick) laid widest side down the same way as in a house wall.
You will probably need to have the concrete ramp up at the front to get the vehicle in depending on your finished concrete height.
Drainage channels in front of the doors will be of benefit and reduce the chance of water getting under your doors but is by no means essential.
We often get asked if we can recommend a builder to construct the bases.
The following builder comes highly recommended by us and has built many bases for our garages to be built on.
