Concrete Base

Sectional concrete garages and buildings are very heavy. As a result, all Lidget Compton buildings require a concrete base. Unfortunately we cannot build on block paving, flagstone paving or tarmac. If you are unsure about the location of your garage/building, your local Lidget Compton agent will be able to help. In many cases they will also be able to provide you with a free site survey so you can find out exactly what you need and perhaps more importantly, what will fit!

It is important to bear this in mind when costing your garage, if you do not have a suitable base you will have to factor in this cost as well.

Concrete garage bases should be perfectly flat, square and level. The picture below shows the preparation for a good solid base.

Ideally your concrete garage base should be 6″ (150mm) wider and 6″ (150mm) longer than the external dimensions of your building. It should also be chamfered slightly around the edges, this is to allow any rain or water to run away from the garage and off the base. This will help to prevent any water ingress underneath the garage panels.

The design of the base should be suitable to the local soil conditions. While your agent can give you advice on most aspects of your concrete garage purchase they not be able to advise you on this. However, normally they can provide the service of refurbishing your existing base or putting in a new base.

Garage Planning Permission

The rules regarding Planning Permission are reasonably simple, but the interpretation of them does vary from authority to authority. Visit the government’s Planning Portal, where you will be able to see what is required.
