Wooden garages are increasingly becoming more and more popular, and it is easy to see why.

With many garages available to choose from, sales of timber garages, in particular, are booming and are slowly becoming the norm. Here we discuss the 5 main benefits of wooden garages and why this should be up for consideration for you to purchase.

Many Uses

Garages these days are no longer there to simply hold vehicles or larger goods that cannot be stored in your homes. Wooden garages can also be treated as a wooden shed perfectly homing some, (or all), of your gardening as well as your DIY tools. Alternatively, bearing in mind that wood is naturally an insulator, a wooden garage could also be an ideal home for pets during the colder seasons. You could even use it as a game room for your kids, or heck, even yourself! The point is, a wooden garage doesn’t have one single use but can have many possible uses – whatever you desire.

Bespoke Wooden Garage


Though it may not suit all tastes, wooden garages are certainly deemed to have more style than perhaps some of the other alternatives out there. They are easier to decorate, and any updates that are needed can usually be done quite simply. As a result, wooden garages are easier to maintain over time in comparison to some other garage types, saving you both time and money. Metal garages for instance, generally suffer from paint flaking away which then requires time and effort to apply new coats. If low maintenance is a priority for you, then a wooden garage definitely makes a lot of sense.

Can be tailored to your individual tastes and needs

It is understandable that you would want to get your perfect garage set up right the first time. Even if you have specific requirements on size, height, colour or material, the main benefit of a wooden garage is that it can be designed to meet your exact specifications. With the abundance of different woods and styles that are available to you rest assured that dream garage can certainly be transformed into a reality using wood.

Wooden Garage and Timber Garage

Wooden garages are durable and sturdy

Many people fail to recognise that wood is naturally a very sturdy and durable material when used in the context of construction. With this in mind, garages that are constructed using the finest of woods can be guaranteed of providing insulation and offering strong protection against harsh weather conditions that may occur in all weather seasons. As a result, this can be viewed as a great investment, especially when there is a need to house and secure certain valuables, such as vehicles, from the outside.

Easy to build

Another great quality of wooden garages is that they are easy to construct in comparison to other material types. Even if you decide to construct a wooden garage by yourself rather than hiring a professional, this can be comfortably achieved in a couple of days without too much bother. The same cannot be said for a garage made using other materials, which typically need a lot more construction time and resource.
