Having access to a garage on your property can make life a little easier. Garages are great for many things, including vehicle parking, storage, workshops, and more. And, depending on the size and design of your garage, there is little limit to what can be accomplished within.
But is there really much difference between an attached and a detached garage? An attached garage is part of the main structure on the property, while a detached garage is a separate building that stands on its own. Although there are pros and cons to both, we’d like to highlight some of the top benefits of a detached garage.

With an attached garage, you are locked in on the location of that garage. It is connected to your home, so you aren’t going to be able to move it to a spot that would be more desirable or more convenient. Of course, that’s not the case with a detached garage, as you can place it anywhere that you would like on your property (as long as you conform to local codes and restrictions).
For instance, if you plan to park in this detached garage, you can place it in a spot that will be convenient to access from the street. Or, if it will be used to store equipment that you use on your property, you can put it in the right spot for that application. Most likely, if you are thinking about a detached garage, you already have a location in mind that will be perfect for your needs.
If you are in the process of building a new home and are trying to settle on a design, you’ll have many more options at your disposal if you commit to a detached garage rather than including the garage in the home’s layout. In many cases, the only viable vehicle access to the house is from the front, meaning the garage has to be in the front as well. This look may not appeal to many home buyers or builders since the garage takes up so much of the front of the home.
Another potential issue with an attached garage is the noise that may be generated when working on projects. If you plan to do anything noisy in your garage–such as working on vehicles or using power tools and machines–all the sounds you produce might become a nuisance for those in the house. This issue could wind up limiting how often you use your garage, since you won’t want to bother people in the house who are trying to sleep, eat, study, etc. Having your workshop in a detached garage space will take the noise away from the house and should eliminate this problem altogether.
Depending on what you plan to do in the garage, it might be nice to work in a detached space so that you can keep any unwanted smells away from the house. For example, painting can put fumes in the air that are not only unpleasant to smell, but also unhealthy. You might not want the smells that come from working on vehicles – such as rubber and oil – to make their way into your house either.
By ordering a detached garage building from American Carports, Inc., you’ll be able to customize the space to suit exactly what you have in mind. This could be anything from a single-car garage space to a huge four-car design. Where an attached garage is limited by the design of the house, a detached garage is only limited by the space you have available and your budget for the project. With the right garage, you won’t have to hold back on your projects anymore – the sky is the limit!
