Where do you need Garage Builders?
Consider your budget as well. Pre-fabricated garages, carports or sheds are usually cheaper to erect. The most expensive option is to retrofit a garage to your existing home, but this can be worth it in terms of resale value. When designing your garage or carport, ensure that it fits in with the house and does not clash. If it is visible from the street, it should also blend in with the street frontage. This is also true for sheds. An architect or building designer can help you to achieve this. Some councils may have regulations on how your garage or carport can look, and many require development approval so it is important that you find out what your local council’s rules are before beginning any designs.
If you will be spending time in your garage, carport or shed, consider installing items to make them more comfortable, such as power points, insulation, waterproofing etc.

Garage building will typically be quoted on square metre basis, so logically expect to pay more for larger areas. Other factors that will influence final cost include the materials utilised, builders permits, insurance and plans. Builders hourly rates can start from $35 per hour, depending on location. When you have factored all this into your budget single brick garages can typically cost well in excess of $25,000, a figure that will escalate if you are looking to integrate the structure into your existing home and are using double brick.
