Classic garage – brick box or concrete blocks with floor ceilings. Of course, during construction on an unprotected territory, for example, in an unguarded garage cooperative, this design is optimal, since it has a good hacking resistance. However, if it is necessary to install the garage in the controlled territory (private household, summer cottage, etc. D.) it is worth considering other options.
One of the fastest ways will build a garage from a sandwich panels with your own hands. The use of this modern material allows you to build a structure in just 1 – 2 days.
As a base, it is best to use a monolithic plate with insulation from polystyrene foam, but you can also fill in the usual strip foundation, subsequently storing the floors of wood inside the floor. A frame is installed on the foundation, to which the facing sandwich panels will be attached. Traditionally, a steel pipe of square section is used for the frame, the elements of which are connected by welding. When installing the frame, it must be borne in mind that the width of the supports to which the panel is attached should be at least 60 mm.
The maximum height of the garage is chosen so that 2 panels installed horizontally are enough for the lining of the sides. The number of frame racks and the distance between them depends on the brand of the sandwiches used and the size of the garage. Usually, when using a square steel pipe with a width of 80 – 100 mm, there are enough three racks on the long side and two – on a short.
When calculating the size of the panels, it must be borne in mind that in the corners one of them should go to the end of the other. For cutting, use an electrician or circular manual saw. Now firms offer cutting services. This option is much more convenient both in work and during transportation.
For those who want to build a garage from the sandwich panels with their own hands, but are not sure of their design talents, many companies produce ready -made sets. They consist of a frame chopped into the required size of the pipes, sandwich panels and shaped elements.
The sandwich panels are fixed to the frame using self -tapping screws with plastic gaskets that protect the coating from damage. A foamed bilateral tape is previously glued to the support at the mounting site. Longitudinal joints are compacted by sealant applied to the grooves of the lock panels and the place of roofing roofing. The transverse seams are filled with mounting foam (near panels made of polystyrene foam) or mineral wool (for panels with mineral water). All places of vertical joints, corners and end facets of the roof are covered with special style elements, which are pre -coated with sealant and fastened with self -tapping screws.
