A garage isn't a part of the house where people always live, but it absolutely needs to be built with the same standards of care as the rest of a home. A poorly built garage can be a source of utility leaks, heating or cooling problems and an entry point for pests of all kinds. You definitely don't want these complications!

Instead, the garage you build should be sound enough so that it could even serve as an extra living space if needed. This is very doable with the right combination of sound construction techniques, tested materials and long-lasting accessories like BECK's SCRAIL® ROOFLOC® System. Let's cover some key tips now.
