## Average Construction Cost for a Single-Car Garage

This post should help you determine the amount you need to construct a stand-alone single garage. Meaning, it is a different structure and is not a part of your actual house. Below is the 3D plan of the garage.

This may be the most simplified version of typical garages that serves its purpose — that is to keep your car from the elements. There is no fascia and ceiling to lower down the cost. Building it with fascia and ceiling is completely optional but it is suggested not to have it since Filipinos are very budget-minded.

The garage construction cost breakdown is as follows:

#### Concreting Structure: Total =PhP 20,954.99

1. Footing = PhP 2,273.12

2. Column = PhP 4,750.28

3. Slab-on-Grade = PhP 9,555.83

4. Formworks = PhP 4,375.76

#### Roofing Works: Total = Php 23,995.14

1. Truss and Roof Sheets = PhP 23,995.14

#### Painting Works: Total = Php 4,008.19

1. Column = Php 809.02

2. Trusses = Php 3,199.17

#### Electrical Works (without wall lamps):

Wiring and Lighting = Php 2,211.30

#### Electrical Works (with wall lamps):

Wiring and Lighting = Php 6,072.15

With a total construction material cost of Php 51,169.62 without the wall lamps and Php 55,030.47 with the wall lamps. Again, that amount is for the materials only. The labor rate is around 40%-60% of the materials cost (this is only a guide as labor rates vary per location). Please also note that general materials prices is used in the calculation of the total construction price. Materials prices differ per region.

The estimated labor cost should be around Php 25,000.00-30,000.00 and they should be able to complete this in 10 – 21 days. If there is a contractor / engineer / architect near you then you better hire one. In fact, it is ALWAYS advised to hire a professional. They’ll know what you need and they can answer your questions right away.
