Maybe your home didn’t come with a garage and you want a safe place to park your vehicle. Or, perhaps your current garage isn’t quite the right fit or design for your current needs. Either way, you know that you need a garage addition for your residential property. To get the best out of the remodeling project, be sure to keep a few points in mind.
Even if you just need a place to protect your vehicle from theft or the weather, is there anything else you’d like to use your garage for? Maybe you need some extra storage space, or perhaps you’d like some extra space for a hobby. Either way, you have to think about the interior layout of your garage. Explore your options for fixtures inside your garage, and think about a multi-use space in case you have shifting needs for a garage space.
Choosing the location for your garage addition may seem easy enough, but think this over a bit. Specifically, consider the best entrance/exit for your garage and your home. Additionally, think about where your garage leads out to. If you live near or on a busy street, you have to focus on overall safety and ease of exiting for your garage. Also, talk to a professional garage building company about whether you may need to put down a new foundation, drainage or the like for the location you have in mind.
Mull over the doors that you choose for your garage, as they’ll impact the overall appearance of your home’s exterior. Depending on where you live, you may want to think about insulated doors that keep your garage space cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Would you rather allow natural light to filter in through windows, or do you prefer electric lights?
As you can see, there is a lot to think about with your garage addition. Sit down with a professional to discuss and explore your options.
