Specification Details for Scotts Bespoke Garages


Although each building is individually designed, we have summarised standard specification details below. Further details can be found in our brochure or alternatively speak to a member of the garages sales team.


BESPOKE SIZES - Scotts bespoke wooden garages can be designed to suit your requirements, so please ask our sales team for advice on the best dimensions to accommodate your vehicle(s). Height to eaves is 2.4m as standard.


BASE REQUIREMENTS - You are required to prepare a concrete base, as specified, ready to take the completed timber building. Scotts can offer a dedicated service with respect to the groundworks and concrete base, from initial specification through to completion on site. Alternatively, detailed drawings will be supplied by Scotts to your groundwork specialist as required.


WALL FRAMES - The size of framing for your garage will be dependent on the size and weight of the roof covering. The building is fixed through the two course brick upstand into the concrete base using chemical bolts.


WALL CLADDING - Scotts pattern T & G shiplap boarding machined from pine boards, vacuum pressure impregnated using Osmose Naturewood. The cladding is affixed to a durable timber frame construction.


ROOF CONSTRUCTION - Trussed rafter roofs are supplied as standard. Roof decking is 15mm exterior grade OSB boarding covered with heavy duty mineralised felt in slate grey or green for a pitch of up to 30. Clay or slate tiles can be accommodated with a trussed rafter roof at an increased pitch.


DOUBLE DOORS - Framed, ledged and braced double doors and frames, in vacuum pressure impregnated T & G, sizes to suit. Alternatively, steel up and over doors are available in a variety of designs and finishes.


SIDE ENTRANCE DOORS - Individual framed, ledged and braced single door, flush on the inside and clad with T & G vacuum pressure impregnated boarding to the outside. The side doors can be supplied in almost any size and finish to suit.


BARGE BOARDS - All in selected pine timber, planed and vacuum pressure impregnated. A variety of designs are available to help personalise your timber garage.


GUTTERING - Guttering can be supplied in various styles, materials and colours to suit individual garage designs. Scotts offers UPVC squareline guttering through to traditional powder coated aluminium guttering, always supplied complete with all fittings and downpipes.


WALL LININGS - A variety of linings can be incorporated within a garage from plywood and V313 boarding to tongued and grooved boarding.

INSULATION - Insulation can be incorporated within side walls and roof area, as required.


PAINT OPTIONS - Scotts bespoke garages are supplied in a pressure treated wood finish, but you can specify a paint or stain to blend in with other buildings or to your preference.


Careful design of your timber garage at the early stages will ensure that it will be a practical, functional and attractive investment, ultimately increasing the value of your home.


The bespoke range of garages can also benefit from a range of optional extras to further personalise and enhance the building. Find out what optional extras can be purchased for your wooden garage or workshop.
