Beginning the Process
To start, we need to gain an understanding of how you’ll be using your garage, as this may influence the size and design. We’ll then assess your property to see what size will fit best and is allowable by the City. The slope of the land and access to the area is also important, as we’ll need to get gravel and concrete to the site. Based on our onsite visit, and with an understanding of your needs and any specific design requirements, we’ll be able to provide you with a quote.

It is recommended that structures be built four (4) feet from the property line. While the City of Ottawa allows garages to be built up to two feet from the property line, as soon as you want to build closer than four feet from your property line, a grading plan will be required and this adds cost and several weeks of lead time to your project. If a grading plan is required, once this is obtained, we will be able to proceed with the process of applying for a building permit. Detached Garages, Custom Garages – Summit, Ottawa’s Garage Builder
Planning Your Garage
Siding and Colours
We only use architectural asphalt shingles as these give more depth and definition, and a much nicer finished product than the old style 3-tab shingles. Typically, our customers select shingles to match the roof of their house or to match colours in their yard.
What to Expect
To better understand what to expect during the construction process, take a look at the details under each of the tabs. This information explains our process ‘every step of the way’, including when inspections by the City of Ottawa take place.
