The LidgetCompton Apex Garage features a traditional pitched roof, designed to blend with most housing styles.
The Apex range incorporates LigetCompton's thicker concrete panel, stronger fibre cement roof sheets and a unique roof design.
You can choose from a further six roof colours, to blend in with your property . A translucent roof sheet is available that will let in natural daylight, although we can supply lining clip packs so you can fix a board for your electrical fittings if you want to install electricity.
The Apex range is our most flexible, offering the biggest number of sizes and options. Make of your Apex what you will; garage, store, workshop, garden room, gym, music room, or a combination by adding a partition to the rear of your garage.
The opportunity to enhance your building with Maintenance Free (MF) and Premium Options (PO) package deals also enables you to save money and time! The full range of Bespoke Options ensures that you will be able to create the right building for you. Why not talk to us and get expert advice?
Also available as a lean-to building.

Maintenance Free Package
Premium Options Package
This is a Lidget Compton Double Apex Garage which has been installed at GBC at Bridgemere in Cheshire. GBC have display garages at nearly all of our branches nationwide. The main thing to point out is the easy sliding Hormann doors which are framed for strength and good looks and give over 6ft of clearance when open. You can, of course, choose a range of maintenance free options.
All Lidget Compton garages are installed by the manufacturer's own expert fitting teams
Contrast this display model at our Chesterfield branch with the picture shown to the LH side of our Bridgemere display building. The key difference is the fact that this building is fitted with our maintenance free pack which gives it the following additional options : maintenance free PVCu facias, vergeboards and gutters. A PVCu window rather than timber. Vertically ribbed front up and over doors ( rather than horizontal ) with 4 point locking. A 3ft white steel personnel door. A sand and cement fillet at ground level and a pair of weather bars in the doorways.
This maintenance free pack is provided at a special price as an incentive to make the most of your garage and avoid the routine maintenance that timber fittings require.
This is an 8'6" wide x 16'3" long Apex garage with our Cotswold stone finish.
Other features to point out are the maintenance free PVCu facias, the personnel door at the rear LH corner, the PVCu double window and white guttering and downpipes.
There's also a Pennine stone finish available as well as the usual brick and spar aggregate finishes.
This fabulous Apex 20 garage ( 20 refers to the 20 degree roof pitch which is steeper than the standard Apex Spar ) has 'Georgian' style Rosewood finish double doors. Facias, windows and side door are also in Rosewood finish. These are all options which you can choose for your standard Spar Apex which has a roof pitch of 12.5 degrees.
The main building is finished in the basic spar aggregate but the front posts are in reclaim brick. The Apex 20 has a choice of different coloured roof 'metrotiles' rather than the fibre cement roof sheets provided with the standard Apex Spar models.
Altogether a very good looking garage.
There are four choices for the exterior walls of your LidgetCompton Garage. The most popular is the spar aggregate finish pictured here.
It's an attractive, inexpensive and maintenance free finish which is applied at the factory during manufacturing.
Alternatively you can choose a brick finish, stone finish, or a textured finish.
There's a choice of four wall finishes for your Lidget Compton garage. Illustrated here is the Sectional Brick finish. Other choices are the Spar aggregate, Stone or Textured finishes.
There are 4 different sectional brick colours to choose from .. this one is 'Deep Red' but we also have a buff brick, brown brick and a different shade of red available.
Our display centre staff can help you decide which one is most appropriate for your location !
Making your garage weathertight is very important and two of the key elements of this are shown in this picture. When installed, your garage fitters will seal between the panels with a water resistant mastic sealant which prevents draughts and damp. If you choose the option of a sand/cement fillet the fitters will fill and smooth around the bottom edge as shown in the picture with a cement fillet.
Hormann doors have an unrivalled reputation for providing easy lift up and over doors. They are secure, reliable and feature an external frame for strength and good looks. Horizontally ribbed doors are provided as standard but you can choose vertically ribbed doors or a range of special designs and colours. Just ask us for details, either with an on-line enquiry or by phone.
Rather than specify individual items such as maintenance free facias ( as shown ), we provide maintenance free packs which include items such as PVCu facias and verge boards, PVCu window and gutters and downpipes.
Other options worth mentioning in this picture are the vertical ribbing on the front up and over door, and the brick front posts ( reclaim brick style ).
An interior shot of the deluxe wooden door shown here on a Pent roof garage. Even in this application there's room to fit the door under the up and over lifting gear. Normally you would expect to position this door further down one side or at the rear. Note that the door is strongly framed and includes a secure lock.
One or more translucent roof sheets can bring light into your garage. Position them over a workbench, a doorway or a dull corner for that little bit of extra daylight. Alternatively, for added security, specify a garage with no side windows and add translucent roof sheets instead !
In the foreground you'll see the full length galvanised steel roof sheets we use on our Pent and Pent Mansard garages. These are treated with Grafo-therm anti condensation treatment to help protect the contents of your garage from damp.They are robust, long lasting and secure.
In the background you'll see the fibre cement roof sheets which are used on our full range of 12.5 degree roof Apex models... our best selling buildings. These have a proven track record and are water tight and durable.
This up and over door is a 'sectional door'... look closely and you can see it is made up of four horizontal panels, one of which can, if wanted,accomodate 'waterford inserts' ie glazed panels ! Because of the door construction you can to park up closer to the door and yet still be able to lift it as it folds upwards while retaining its overall size.
This sectional door is shown on an Apex 20 garage but can be fitted to all of our garage styles.
If you want to see one of these doors we have it on show at our Ferndown branch in Dorset. Just check out the address on our site locator or follow the 'where can I see one link' above.

All concrete garages include installation by an expert team of builders. A concrete base needs to be prepared by you prior to delivery. Base plans for each building and base-building information is available, to ensure that there are no issues when we deliver and install.
As all of our concrete garages are very heavy, they are normally delivered using large lorries. So that we can be sure that buildings are safe and undamaged when unloaded, we also use lorry-mounted fork-lifts to manoeuvre the concrete panels.
To be able to do this, we will need to ask you questions relating to access and the size of lorry that will be able to reach your property. Once you have placed your order, you will be asked to fill out a 'help-the-driver' form that will give you the opportunity to give as much detail as possible - allowing us to deliver and install your new garage.
As there are so many variations in our range of garages and each one is made to order, you should expect to receive delivery of your new building around 4-6 weeks from when your “help the driver” form has been sent back to us.
