Why Every Colorado Resident Needs a Detached Garage

As a resident of Colorado, you know that one day can be complete sunshine and the next you’re enjoying flurries and blizzard warnings. With weather that fluctuates so often, you’d think that a garage would be a part of every home’s design. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, and all too often Colorado residents wind up with their cars uncovered and exposed to the unpredictable weather.

If you are one of those Colorado residents that we are talking about, today’s blog is for you. We are going to touch on a few of the reasons that every Colorado resident without a garage should consider investing in a detached garage. Let’s dive in!


Leaving your car outside while it’s snowing may not be the worst thing in the world, but when you’re heading to work or running errands, you are going to have to deal with cleaning the snow off, defrosting the windshield, and warming the car up to a temperature where driving isn’t torture. When you have a garage that you can keep your vehicle in, you don’t have to worry about doing this every single morning. Though it may be a luxury, it’s definitely one that we can understand all residents of Colorado enjoying.


Snow isn’t the only form of weather that Colorado cars need to be wary of. Hail storms are equally plausible and so much more capable of doing damage to cars. When spring and summer start to settle in, hail storms are just one more thing to worry about. In the last couple of years, we’ve seen hail the size of golfballs fall. When these storms roll through, the last thing that you want to worry about is how the storm is going to affect your car or what types of repairs are going to need to be made.

Crowded Roads

Depending on where in Colorado you live, you’ve likely enjoyed the increase in residents. Some of the streets that were once quiet and rarely driven on are now busy streets traveled daily. If you are living on one of the roads where traffic has increased, the last thing that you want is to leave your car out on the street or where someone could easily access it. With the increase in people traveling down these roads, it only makes sense that you have a nice, safe place to keep your car.

Additional Protection

By no means is Colorado an extremely dangerous place to live, but additional protection is without a doubt a reason that investing in a detached garage is such a beneficial investment to make. Rather than leave your car out in the open where anyone could break into it, make sure that your vehicle is safe and sound in the detached garage that you’ve added to the property. The additional protection doesn’t end at your car, however. All of your belongings that you choose to store in your detached garage are also going to be protected! Which leads us to our next point: extra storage.

Extra Storage

The last point that we’re going to cover in today’s blog post is extra storage. While it might not be the first thing that comes to mind when people think of a detached garage, it is one of the many reasons that people decide to add a detached garage to their property. Whether you have tools or landscape supplies, having an extended garage is a great way to keep them stored and organized! Aside from that, you can always choose to use the space in your detached garage as a workshop as well.
