What is the cost of building a Garage?
The average building cost in South Africa varies between R5000 and R12000 per square metre. With garages not having a lot of expenses when it comes to finishings, you can expect the cost to be on the lower end of the spectrum for a basic garage. The average cost of a single garage in South Africa will range from R100,000.00 to R200,0000 depending on things such as roof style, garage door type and if you want finishings like tiles or an epoxy floor installed.
A well built garage can also be ascetically pleasing and will have a great return on investment when it becomes time to sell.
Factors that influence the price of building a brick garage.
Here are some of the major factors that influence the cost of building a garage:
- The size of the garage you want to build
- The style and type of roof you want
- The style and type and material of the garage door
- What type of brick you opt for
- If the garage door will, be automated or not
- The type of finishing you want.
The type of brick you opt for
A brick typically costs between R2 and R10 per unit. It will need more than 2000 standard-size bricks to construct a single-car garage.
The style and type and material of the garage door
A sturdy wooden folding door will cost much more than a typical metal rollup door. A garage door may cost as little as R6000 or more than R20000.To see the latest garage door prices visit Garage Door Pros
Is the garage door automated or not
Garage door automation can cost from R10000 and upwards depending on the size, weight and type of door you opted for.
The style and type of roof you want
The price of a roof can vary quite a lot depending on the style, intricacy and the roofing material used
The size of the garage you want to build
A typical single garage is roughly 18 square metres in size, which is slightly more than half the size of a double garage. Additionally, you can decide to lengthen your garage a little bit to make room for a workbench or to keep the children’s bicycles.
The type of finishing you want
If you would like the garage floor to be tiled or perhaps have it epoxy coated. Do you want to install an outside bathroom? This all can affect the price dramatically.
