Oak Framed Garages
Oak Framed Garages in Kent, Surrey and Sussex and other parts of the South East. Chartwell Oak Buildings hand built in their Kent workshop.
Oak framed garage variations are available to suit different individuals tastes and requirements. The design will firstly consider the number of bays required. Then consider the required width, height and depth of those bays. These bays will be affected by the size of any intended vehicles or any further ancillary uses our customer may have in mind.
Roof shape significantly affects the appearance of an oak framed garage, as does the choice of roof covering. We can construct gable ended, hipped and barn-hipped roofs, supplying the roof tile of your choice. Our roof tiles range from an economical concrete plain tile, to machine made and handmade clay plain tiles; or slates. More options are available on request. The very traditional characteristic of oak framed garages means our customers often select a reclaimed roof tile. This gives their building an established look from day one.
We normally install feather edge boarding as cladding. The boarding is available in treated softwood, Larch, Douglas Fir and Oak. Treated softwood does require staining, though Larch, Douglas Fir and Oak can be left as bare timber. Natural resilience to the environment allows the latter species to gradually silver over time.
We add rooms in the roof space above an oak garage on request, usually to provide leisure space, storage or additional accommodation. We build staircases, positioned externally or internally, to provide access to this room. Then install floors and add any windows or doors that are required.
Chartwell Oak Building’s skilled construction team will assemble your oak framed garage on site. Firstly raising the oak frame, adding any stud work and joinery, and cladding the building. Our own roofing team will prepare the roof and install your chosen roof covering. Avoiding the necessity to wait for an independent roofing contractor to complete the build.
