FAQ: Preparing For Garage Installation

Will I Need A Permit To Install A Garage?

For any construction on your property, you probably will need a building permit. Before breaking ground, research your community’s permitting process and obtain necessary documents to ensure your project complies with local ordinances. If you use a reputable garage builder, like Murphy Sheds, they will take of the permit for you.

How Do I Decide Where To Place My Garage?

When deciding on the perfect spot for your detached garage, it’s important to make sure the area is easily accessible for your vehicles. To comply with the building codes, you will need to stay a certain distance away from property lines and other structures. Murphy Sheds will have someone come to your property, free of charge, and give you good placement options.

What If The Land I Choose Is Uneven?

Uneven ground will not affect the stability of your detached garage, as the area must be graded before construction begins. Before installing the foundation for your garage, you must remove a layer of topsoil to make the land level. There can be additional costs for the extra dirt work and concrete, however.  

How Do I Pour The Concrete Base For My Garage?

If you are using an experienced contractor, the concrete work will be part of the package. Murphy Sheds, for example, has a list of reputable sub-contractors they use to do the concrete.
