New custom sheds and garages are a great addition to any property. On top of the extra storage space you’ll be able to use for practical purposes, garages and sheds can increase a home’s property value in the long run. One of the best ways to maximize this potential is by hiring Amish garage builders.
The Amish have long been known for their work with furniture, but many not realize this level of craftsmanship can also be found in their work as garage builders. Here are five practical and important reasons to consider Amish built garages.
- Handmade: Just like Amish furniture, which is 100% handmade, the same can be said for their garages. This means not only is the quality of work higher, but also the attention to detail and ability to customize your garage exactly the way you want it. It’s much easier to work with the person who’s actually doing the work in-person than through a network on contractors for example.
- Durability: One of the aspects of the handmade quality is that these garages typically have a longer life expectancy. In general, a wooden shed should last at least 15 to 20 years. Amish garage builders will leave you with one that far surpasses that time frame.
- Style/Design: Again, the handmade nature of these products allows you to customize your garage how you want. Even without this though the Amish have great, unique options in terms of their aesthetic appeal. An Amish built garage will certainly stick out in almost any neighborhood.
- Support Small/Local: Although they have a culture and community of their own, the Amish are still a part of the United States as a whole and especially the local communities they live in and near. It’s important on a macro economic level to support local and small businesses and Amish garage builders fall into this category.
- Speed/Efficiency: It usually takes approximately eight weeks to build new or custom Amish furniture and while it can take some time to schedule a new garage project, the actual building process won’t take as long as most other options. The Amish have a long history of garage and barn-raising techniques that allows them to build new structures quickly and efficiently.
Whether you need the extra space or just want to spruce up your real estate finding quality Amish garage builders is a great solution.
