Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need a building consent?
    Yes. In New Zealand, any structure greater than 10 square metres in size requires a building consent. But you don’t have to worry about that - we’ll take of the entire consent process for you.
  • What guarantees do you offer?
    We stand by our products by offering various guarantees across our range. Garages come with a 25-year structural guarantee as well as a 5 year Workmanship and Materials Guarantee (which applies when we build your building for you). For our farm building and carport customers, we provide a 5-year structural guarantee. To find out more about the Versatile guarantees available on our products, please contact your local Versatile outlet.
  • Can I alter my roof pitch to match my home?
    Yes. Your garage will come with a standard roof pitch of 15, but you can upgrade to a 20, 25 or 30 roof pitch to match your home if you choose. We can also alter the roof pitch of our other buildings to suit your requirements.
  • Can I increase the height of my building?
    Yes. Your garage will come with a standard stud height of 2.1 metres. Of course, if you have a boat or an SUV you may decide to increase your stud height to 2.4, 2.7 or 3 metres high. This is also a good way to add value to your home for future sale.

    You can also alter your farm building height to suit your requirements.
  • What garage door options are available?
    While your garage will come standard with a tilt door there are various upgrade options. You can upgrade your garage door to a sectional door or a roller door, and choose to have an automatic garage door opener on any of these doors.
  • Is there a range of colours I can choose from?
    We have a range of stylish colour options for both your cladding and your roof and trim. See our Buildings pages for further detail.
