4. Fire Separation
There are a lot of details to consider when it comes to your garage/dwelling fire separation wall. When you hire a contractor to add an attached garaged, you expect him to know these details because it involves your families safety. Don’t assume anything. I won’t go into all of the details, but the requirements are implemented for fire resistance since garage fires are not uncommon. Here is a hint, if you can see the car in your garage through a window, your contractor probably forgot something-like the garage/dwelling fire separation requirements.
