Wooden prefabricated garage kits typically come with a floor, floor joists, walls, roof, garage door, shutters, gable vents and roof shingles, according to AlansFactoryOutlet.com. Prefabricated garage kits come in a variety of styles for one car or two cars and a choice of an A-frame or barn-style roof.
These prefabricated garages can be one story or two stories tall and can also be used for general storage. Customers have a choice of garage widths, lengths, colors and styles.
Most of the wood in these kits is specially treated for durability. For example, the plywood floor and joists are pressure treated, according to Wood-Tex.com, another producer of wooden garage kits. Their kits include a fiberglass door with overhead weather stripping and a roof with tar paper underlay for architectural shingles meant to last for 30 years. The garages are portable and can be disassembled and transported.
Though prefabricated garage kits offer many advantages such as the relatively low cost and quick and easy assembly that does not require specialized knowledge or skills, they do have certain disadvantages, according to GaragePlansEtc.com. For example, some kits are height-limited and cannot accommodate a recreational vehicle, and some kits may require the use of a large delivery truck.
