If you are a typical household owner in the United States, you are probably grappling with the fact that your kids are getting older and they are bogging you about getting a new car. In many cases, you teenagers would take on summer jobs and then would have enough money to either put a down payment on a used car or buy a very cheap old car. Regardless of how they got their car, you’re going to have to deal with the fact that you’re going to have more cars than a space at your house. On a practical level, you can ask your kids to park the car in your driveway or on the street. The problem with these options is that they cause a lot of damage. Parking on the street for example, can be a serious risk. There are many drunk drivers or just inexperienced and incompetent driver that might plow into cars that are parked on the street. Worse, they don’t leave their insurance information. That’s right. Hit and run accidents when it comes to property damage is more common than you think. The other alternative is to have your kid park his or her car in your driveway. While this doesn’t eat up your garage space, there is the added headache of having to ask your son or daughter to move the car while you leave the garage. Alternatively, the other hassle with this option is that the car is left to the elements. It can get quite hot and quite cold at different times of the year. These harsh extremes can be murdered on a car’s factory finish. So if you want your kid’s car to look great a few years after your kid bought the car, it’s not a good idea to park the car in the driveway. This leads us to putting up a garage. Unfortunately, putting up a traditional garage can cost a lot of money. This is not a surprise. You have to hire a contractor, would then hire subcontractors to get the building done. The good news is that prefabricated garages can save you quite a bit of money.
