Why You Need a Detached Garage

If you’re looking for that bit of nostalgic design in your new house plans or even an existing residence, the team at Neighborhood Garage Door of New Haven has what you are searching for. There has been a return to days-gone-by where garages (or carriage houses) were once detached out of necessity because they housed transportation of the four-legged kind.

The modern detached garage, though, is built for different reasons and has made an attractive comeback. You will be surprised to know the advantages of having a space separate from your living quarters in short order.

Benefits of a Detached Garage 

Are you growing tired of the prominently attached garages on residential houses and wish they were less noticeable? The detached garage offers that immediate curbside appeal. Even though typical modern builders once thought attached garages to be a selling feature, many are seeing the pluses to separating the space for vehicles and such so that the living quarters have their own entity.

Consider these important advantages to detached garages:

1. Prevention of Toxic Fumes

Once your car is parked in a detached garage, the exhaust emissions are kept away from your house.

2. Floor Plan Design

If a “residence” for the family cars is built elsewhere, the space can then become a mother-in-law’s quarters, a game room, or an office. This feature adds value to your residence and great appeal to families needing separate space.

3. Additions Are Simpler

When a need arises for extra space within the building, detached garages are not hampered by the typical architectural constraints of a house.

4. Space Can Extend Vertically When Horizontally is Not Possible

Consider the ability to add an attic space to a detached garage when lot size and your county’s zoning make it impossible to add on at the ground level.

5. Workshops Become Possible

With the advent of work-from-home artisans comes the ease of walking to work on a daily basis. No longer will individuals need to carve out a spot in a random warehouse to fit their needs. A detached garage actually becomes a money-saver in the end.

6. Added Safety

A detached garage brings with it a bonus sense of security. While attached garages are close, they might be too close. A burglar gaining access to your garage will also gain access to your living quarters. Having separate spaces limits that accessibility.  

Now that the time of the horse and buggy has passed us by, it is time to utilize building resources in the best way possible. The need to “spread out” and become more comfortable is the trademark of modern day society. There are proven benefits to making room for the necessities of life. It is time you enjoyed those benefits!

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
