Garage roofing options

If you are in the process of having a new garage built or have recently discovered that your garage is leaking, you need to think carefully about what roof you would like to have. There are a number of different options when it comes to the type of roof you have and the material used. Most good roofing firms will explain to you the different options you have when it comes to choosing your roof, but it is always a good idea to have some basic knowledge of which ones are best for what. Corrugated sheets are a popular choice...

Garage door safety and ...

Many of us have garages at our homes, either stand alone or attached to our houses. Your garage may be used to store your vehicle, tools and gardening equipment such as lawn mowers or even as a gym. Its important that we consider our garage security the same way we consider our home security. If the garage is attached to the house, then it may be used as easy access into the home. If you have a remote for your garage door then make sure it is kept out of reach of children. Not only may they accidentally open it,...

Organising your garage ...

It is so easy to use your garage space as a dumping ground and if you are not carefully you will find a few years down the line that you cannot use your garage in a practical way as it is full of items that you no longer use or often need. This can then mean it becomes a massive task to sort it out, one which many of us put off again and again. Ideally you want to try and keep on top of it and sort it out often. Cluttered garages severely limit the usefulness of this vital...

Turning your garage in ...

With many of us still working from home and gyms remaining closed, it makes sense to try and do your exercise in your home environment. Some people do not like to have gym equipment in their bedroom or living room and would rather have a dedicated place to go to work out. If you do not have a spare room then you may decide that you want to turn your garage in to a gym. A garage can be the perfect place to set up a gym as it often does not need to be made really warm as the...

Are you finding that yo...

When our families are growing, we can never seem to have enough space in our vehicles. Preparing for holiday trips is usually a nightmare as we try to fit children, dogs, suitcases and beach paraphernalia into our family car sometimes having to resort to buying a roof rack or box to accommodate bikes and scooters, but as our children leave home some of us find that the advantages of running a smaller vehicle outweigh the need for a larger one. As many people are now looking to reduce their monthly outgoings downsizing your car is one way to achieve this...

Are we all going to be ...

The current government is encouraging us all to think about switching to electric cars as the pollution levels across the world rise at a tremendous rate causing a growing number of health issues but is it really feasible to expect us all to do this in the near future? Up until recently the main concern was the range an electric car could travel on a single charge, but it has been shown that newer electric cars have a range exceeding two hundred miles. So, what are the current benefits and drawbacks for the customer thinking of switching? The benefit to...

Buying a private number...

If you are looking for a quirky gift for the avid car lover or just want to get something a little personal for yourself or a loved one, then a private number plate may be perfect. A private number plate also known as a cherished plate or personalised number plate is a plate that has been selected by the owner or someone else to be assigned to a vehicle. Unlike a car number plate that is assigned when the vehicle is new at the dealership, theses number plates do not always have the same number of letters and numbers of...

Can you be sure if the ...

If you are looking to buy a second hand vehicle there are a number of points that you need to consider. One of them is mileage as many parts on a car are only designed to last a certain number of miles before they need to be replaced – such as a cambelt. If you go to look at a car which is very low mileage for its age, you may have doubts as to whether the mileage is genuine. On average, most cars do about ten thousand miles per annum. If you have a ten year old car and...
