Have a garage but not a garage door? Typically, a house comes with a garage. However, if you live in anything but a typical house such as a trailer home or cottage, you may have to organize a garage for your vehicle yourself. You may also need to put up another structure to house an RV, classic car or boat that you use occasionally. Maybe you run your own business and need a workplace that isn't overrun by family and pets. If any of those scenarios sound familiar, you've probably considered constructing a building on your property. One type of building you can get is a Do It Yourself building.
Where can I get a Do It Yourself building kit?
Choose one from the companies that are known for high quality structures. SteelMaster is a good choice. You should also choose kits that are not too difficult to assemble. Maintenance is another factor to consider. You don't want a garage that will be too demanding to maintain. On this note, steel garages beat the rest. The ones coated with a special coat of Galvalume Plus in particular are virtually maintenance-free. They look good and remain in good condition for years and years. You can also rest easy about decay which is a problem with wooden structures. Pest infestation and damage such as termites is also not an issue.
The best kits come with only one size nut and bolt which makes assembly that much easier and faster. Your metal garage will not take you more than a few days to assemble with the help of one or two people.
The structure doesn’t come with a garage door. Where do I get one?
So you have successfully assembled your metal building but you are missing one crucial element: the garage door. You have to get the measurements exactly right if you are to have a door that closes completely so that your car is secure. It should also close and open smoothly.
You would do well to consider leaving this part to the experts. Depending on the metal garage kit that you have purchased, it may be necessary to have a door custom made. An expert will also fit the door correctly so that it will not give you problems in future. Just in case a problem does arise, you can call on the company to come back and correct it without additional charges to you thanks to the warranty you will have been given for the job. This is of course subject to terms and conditions.
It will definitely take an expert to measure out your garage door, make it and fit it. It is a feat you can give a go if you so wish but it will most likely be an effort that may give you more frustration than progress, not to mention a lot of labor and stress. You may also have to invest in some tools that a professional garage door installer already has.
