Attached garages typically serve
either as a parking area for a vehicles, storage, or a combination of both.
What We Look At:
of the components and interior & exterior finishes on a garage will be of similar
design and construction as the main house, so the same standards usually apply to an
attached garage, as would apply to the house itself.
Typical problems we see
are: Improper firewall separation between house & garage; unsafe overhead
garage door reversing mechanisms; lack of an insulated or fire-rated door
between the garage and house; no safety auto-closures on the garage/house
common door; "do-it-yourself" wiring in the garage workshop;
