However, other people use carports as a porch cover or a shaded playing area for their children. Is the carport intended to protect the car from the sun or is it to protect from the snow? Are walls necessary to achieve your intended purposes ie. prevent wind and/or snow drifts? Are you expecting to store things safely in the carport. Will you need an area for cupboards? Make a list of goals you want to meet with your carport.

There are many different flooring solutions from porcelain or PVC tiles to resin or aluminium according to your needs but a suitable floor will make all the difference to you garage. Forget floor paint - it may seem a cheap solution but it simply won’t last and you will probably find it flaking up within months or sticking to the tread of warm car tyres.

Having been retained as expert witness for both plaintiff and defense, several common factors have been observed. In many cases, unqualified individuals have attempted to repair or install garage doors. They have lacked the knowledge, skills or even the basic required tools to perform the work safely and properly. I have been hired as an expert by garage door manufacturers and installers to defend claims that they are not responsible for alleged product defects. In most cases, the components that failed, failed as a result of abuse or improper installation on the part of the end user. As stated above, the installation of many garage doors is not appropriate for an untrained person. An exception to this relates to "do it yourself" garage door kits that are sold at local home centers. A homeowner could install the door because these kits do not come with a professional quality package of hardware that should or would require special knowledge for the installation. These kits do not typically employ torsion springs that would require special knowledge, proper tools, and working skills to install. The doors are typically for light duty use. Professional installation services are often available through a home center to assist a homeowner in need of a specialized installation. As with most trade specific tasks, years of experience working as a professional installer qualifies tradesmen for their contracting license. The average homeowner watching a few television shows that give rough explanations of how to install garage doors is not usually qualified to install his or her own door. These "how to" television shows are no substitute for the many skills acquired after working in the field.

Having someone you know recommend a garage is first hand experience, which is far more valuable than any other source of information in magazines or online. All garages claim they are the best or cheapest but when a personal recommendation is given you can be sure it’s an honest and far more accurate review.

From an un-tidy home overflowing with clutter to the clean, organised and ordered one - every room within every home says something about the owner. And if you really want to see what someone is like without their make up on, the best place to look is probably the garage!

In the past, the biggest concern with operating an overhead garage door was the potential risks associated with the springs used for balancing the door weight. Pre mid 1960’s garage door installations typically relied upon a pair of stretched (tensioned) springs to assist the operation of the garage door pivoting hinges. These springs became loaded (tensioned) as the door was moved into the closed position. Unloading (releasing) of the stored spring energy occurred as the door was opened to the horizontal overhead position. One of the most dangerous aspects of these spring systems was that after a period of time, often without any maintenance or inspection, the points of attachment of these springs would rust or become weak. This weakening of the springs or points of attachment would often lead to an inadvertent explosive failure flinging the broken spring components across the garage, embedding the spring or steel components into the garage walls, cars or other items in the path of travel. Unfortunately, sometimes people were in the path of travel of these explosive occurrences. As these springs failed, as an attempted safeguard, some manufacturers devised a "caging" system for the springs. These cages were retrofitted onto the stretched springs in an attempt to capture the parts that would release if a failure occurred. While these caging devices were helpful, they were not completely effective. Some of these spring devices are still in use today. Whenever this condition exists or the quality of garage components are questionable, a qualified professional service technician should be consulted.

Factors that make up the perfect garage would be, affordable prices, friendly customer service, no nasty surprises, quick service and a clean & comfortable workshop. When looking for the best servicing garage for your car, it’s important to balance up these factors, where big chain garages are often cheaper, the service often falls. Some garages are specialists for certain cars, and when using the term ’specialist’, this does not have to mean expensive, it can just mean they have the knowledge and focused ability for that area.

When the garage is big enough, consider putting inexpensive tiles or faux flooring in a set part of the garage to produce a much more comfortable work zone. Again, don’t put an excessive amount into it-- this area is susceptible to spills and permanent messes as well. Finishing areas of the garage interior will make it more pleasing to come home to, in addition to a better space for taking care of DIY small remodels, and arts and crafts. It is important that the garage not be neglected and ignored as part of the functioning livable part of a house.
