    Make sure whatever else you do, you put a dampproof membrane in the concrete slab, otherwise you'll never see the end of the damp rising, wet floors etc.
    Just a passer by as you might say.

    Having had 2 big garages built in the last 10 years, one wood and one block & render there are pro's & cons to each.
    Both have wood/hot pitch felt roofs.

    Wood, cheaper and quick. VERY warm with insulation but requires painting the outisde every 2 years. Possibility of rot at base over time.

    Block & render, cheaper than brick (as its faster to build) but not as warm. Paint every 10 years (or 15 according to paint manufacturers) and zero maintainance apart from that.

    Some people prefer tiled roofs but they are a lot more money and require a lot of inner lining/insulation but are maintainance free. Wood/felt roofs are cheaper and warmer but felt will need replacing every 10-15+ years.

    Block & render garage;

    Yet another option is SIP and render.
    Basically you build 8x4 construction grade OSB panels out of OSB with 4x2 uprights, backed with ‘kingspan’, staple a wire mesh to the insulation and render it. The OSB shows inside and is paintable, the render shows outside and it looks like a block built, but in half the time and at a reasonable cost, and if done properly there are no rot issues.

    Having just had a sectional concrete garage built the main factor for me was cost, a brick garage was going to cost more than double a concrete garage, I had a concrete garage at our old house for 25years and it was great, you must seal the panels to the slab and not just with a concrete fillet and insulate the walls with foam panels, they are really cost effective and you can get a much bigger garage which again was a major concern for me.

    Due to space I had to add a workshop to the side of my existing brick garage out of timber. In hindsight I wish I had demolished the brick garage and built the lot out of wood as the workshop is always warmer than the garage, but that's just my personal preference as I had a timber garage at our old house.DSC_0136[3684].JPG
