Customize Your Dream Garage
Many customers decide to build their own endwalls in order to match the appearance of other structures on the property, provide an architectural accent or have a particular look to their Prefab Garage Building. There are numerous materials that can be used as a façade for the building’s ends including brick, block, vinyl siding, wood or shiplap siding, horizontal logs, glass, etc. These materials can also be combined to create a wainscot appearance with brick for the first 36-42″ and then wood or another material above for the remaining exposure.
It is actually quite simple for the do-it-yourselfer to customize the endwalls of a Longlife Garage Building. They can be installed flush with the actual end of the building or recessed several feet into the building itself. When the custom ends are recessed into the building, it creates an overhang and enhances the building’s overall appearance.
The first step is to determine where the building’s contents – vehicles, tools and equipment workbenches – will be situated. Only then can you layout the optimal locations for your door and window openings. Always prepare a drawing before starting construction of your endwalls. Be sure and allow for the effects of wind load and snow drift in your endwall design.
Simply stud up a wall using wood or steel channels vertically and attach them to the top of the Garage Building at the end. The factory manufactures an adaptor angle, which is available as an option that goes around the lip of the open end so that the customer supplied endwalls can be attached. Either plywood or OSB is then attached to the vertical studs with a layer of a weather resistant barrier (WRB) such as Tyvek® stapled to it to repel and prevent water and air from penetrating. Your stud wall is now ready to receive the siding or brick façade.
