Why Our Home Garage Is Perfect for Your Vehicles

Why Our Home Garage Is Perfect for Your Vehicles

You invested in a vehicle — now it’s time to invest in a way to protect it and prolong its lifespan. 

Vehicles are expensive. They’re not an impulse buy — they’re an investment. This is the number one reason why so many people choose to keep their vehicles in a home garage when they’re not in use. While this is reason enough, there are many other compelling reasons why people buy or build home garages if they don’t have one.

If you’re frustrated by:

  • The backbreaking work of digging your car out of the snow multiple times every winter (South Dakota and Minnesota winters can be relentless at times)
  • The dozens of times you have to wash your car during the height of pollen season
  • Getting drenched in torrential downpours when unpacking your vehicle

The good news is that a garage can virtually eliminate these problems.

Sick of Scraping Off Your Car?

Clearly, there are many reasons why having a home garage is smart, practical, and convenient, but here’s more to consider if you're on the fence about investing in a garage. 

  • You can protect your vehicle from dust, rust, and hail — and whatever else nature throws at it. Protecting your vehicle from the elements will help it work better and last longer. 
  • Extreme winter conditions can cause annoying, inconvenient, and costly problems that can be easily prevented. For instance, if a car sets outside for a couple of days during cold months, batteries can die and essential fluids can freeze.
  • Keeping a vehicle indoors overnight or when it’s not in use protects it from break-ins and theft.
  • When a car is kept inside a garage, the interior is saved from the sun’s brutality. Heat and radiant rays can damage your dashboard, steering wheel, and seats – especially if you have a leather interior.
  • Keeping your vehicle parked in a garage can help when you’re running late during the winter and don’t have time to scrape ice from the windshield or shovel out a buried car from the snow.

With all of the benefits in mind, it’s clear that a garage is the best solution for vehicle storage. With many options available, what’s the best one for your needs, space, and budget? We recommend our Home Garage. It’s available in several sizes and colors, and it features a built-in loft, premium automatic overhead garage door, and LP SmartSide Wall Panels with SilverTech. Keep reading to learn more about this garage option and how it could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

We want you to trust that you're getting a durable and long-lasting garage. While we do a full 360-degree quality inspection of all the buildings we manufacture and sell, occasionally, things happen.
