The state of Washington can experience some severe weather, from blizzards in the winter to thunderstorms in the summer. Storms that form in the Pacific Ocean can quickly find their way to Tacoma, Lakewood, or wherever you happen to be. When storms arrive, one of your first thoughts is probably to get your car or truck under some form of cover, especially if there’s a possibility of hail.

At Better Built Barns, our custom garages can be a great option for your property, and they can be a literal lifesaver when those hail storms threaten your vehicles. If you’re interested in building a new garage, then contact us today!

Avoid Costly Repairs

When a thunderstorm comes, you may enjoy sitting outside and watching the rain roll through and the lightning flash in the distance, but if the storm is nearby, you may be worried about damage to your house and your vehicles. If hailstones begin to fall, then it’s important to get your car under cover as soon as possible. You may have parked it on the street, thinking that the large tree in your yard would provide protection, but having a garage where you can put the car will ensure that there are no dings or dimples once the storm is over. You can avoid costly repairs, or at least, having to file a claim with your auto insurance company.

Broken Branches and Debris

Speaking of trees, they can also pose a serious risk to your car during a hail storm. Depending on the size of the hailstones, branches may break and fall on your unprotected car that’s parked in the driveway or on the street. Instead of dents in the body of the car, you now have a broken windshield or cracked lights from falling branches and other debris. Being able to put the vehicle in the garage at the first sign of the storm can provide with substantial peace of mind.

Which Garage is Best?

At Better Built Barns, we have a number of garage styles and sizes to choose from, and we can help you pick the one that best fits your property and your budget. You may only need a one-car garage, but if you want to use the space as a workshop, or you have a motorcycle and lawn equipment that you want to store, then a larger building may be a better choice. Regardless of which garage you choose, you can count on our team getting it up and in place in no time at all.

Severe weather shouldn’t worry you when it comes to your vehicles.
