Garage specification details
Scotts timber garages can be manufactured to any size with a wide variety of design possibilities. Standard specification details are listed below although Scotts can work with you to create an individual timber garage to suit your requirements and surrounds. Careful design of your garage at the early stages will ensure that it will be a practical, functional and attractive investment, ultimately increasing the value of your home.
Size and base information
Scotts will design a garage to the best dimensions to accommodate your vehicle(s) although the standard height to eaves is 2.4m.
Base: In terms of the base, 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.
Walls and roof details
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: The cladding, as standard, utilises Scotts pattern T & G shiplap boarding machined from European Redwood. However, you can specify feather edged boarding or a special profile, if desired, to create a more traditional feel. The timber is vacuum pressure impregnated using Osmose Naturewood to promote a long, maintenance free life. The cladding is affixed to a durable timber frame construction.
Roof construction: A wide range of roofing materials, such as felt, felt tiles, Metrotile, sedum and cedar shingles can be used to suit individual customer preference. Alternatively, trussed rafters can be supplied to take clay or slate tiles, so that the garage can blend in with existing buildings. In addition, Scotts can offer a room in the roof option for your garage or outbuilding. The room in the roof trussed rafter is a simple and economical way of providing additional storage space within your timber garage.
Doors and windows
Garage doors: Pressure impregnated, timber framed, ledged and braced doors are available to the required dimensions and can be stained if required. Steel and timber up-and-over doors are also offered, with a vast range of colours and finishes to choose from. The up-and-over doors can be supplied with a remote control option if desired. Taller and wider garage door options for other vehicles can be accommodated as necessary and the Scotts team can offer advice as needed.
Framed, ledged and braced side entrance doors can also be included within the design, for quick and easy access. The side doors can be supplied in almost any size and finish to suit.
Windows: Standard casement windows can be specified into any of the garage designs for additional light and ventilation. An etched window on the gable end, in various shapes and with personalised logo, is becoming a popular addition adding value to the overall finish. Alternatively, specialist windows can be designed into any of the Scotts garages.
Barge boards: Decorative barge boards provide a distinctive finishing touch to any garage. Barge boards can be supplied in a variety of designs and colour finishes and in a design to suit your project.
Guttering: 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 and insulation: A variety of linings can be incorporated within a garage from plywood and V313 boarding to tongue and grooved boarding. Insulation can additionally be incorporated within the wall and roof areas, if required.
Paint finish: Scotts bespoke garages are supplied, as standard, in a pressure impregnated finish. If required, however, the garage can be decorated with a stain or paint to suit individual preferences or to comply with local authority planning requirements.
Ventilation: All timber buildings need to have adequate ventilation and this will be incorporated within any Scotts timber garage or workshop.
Clocks, Clocktowers and weathervanes: A clock is a notable feature which enhances the appearance and value of a building and its surroundings. Scotts offers a range of traditionally styled clock towers, to blend in with your building. The shape of the tower roof can be changed and there is a wide choice of clocks, from contemporary to heritage styling. Weathervanes can also be chosen, to similarly add the final finishing touch to any building or clock tower.
All of the optional extras listed above are priced individually, depending on the actual requirement. Please speak to our garages sales team for further advice.
