Is it Time for a Garage Upgrade?

A garage is a great resource for the average homeowner. In addition to protection for our cars, they offer additional space which proves to be incredibly useful. Some families store tools and unused household goods. Others add a hobby space, or a washer and dryer. The trash cans and bicycles are often stored in the garage. And, 60% of all households use the garage as a primary means of entering their homes. 

While they aren’t the hub of social interaction, they offer excellent features which make upgrading the garage a wise investment. Today, we’re going to talk about some of the things a homeowner can do to improve their garage area to increase it’s practical and aesthetic value.

KEEP THE GARAGE DOOR MAINTAINED

Perhaps the most essential function of the garage door is that it acts as an entrance and exit. By extension, it provides security and protection for family cars. None of this is possible or practical of the garage door is broken or poorly maintained. So, keep it working by testing it often and having it maintained regularly. 

When it comes to the end of its life, don’t hesitate to replace it. A homeowner who would never hesitate if his front door needed to be replaced will sometimes stall at the notion of replacing a garage door, even though he will get far better use and service from a working garage door. 

Here are some other considerations:

EPOXY FLOORING

Epoxy flooring is a highly favored upgrade among homeowners. It’s attractive, it keeps the contents of a garage clean, and it prevents the garage floor from damage and cracking. Epoxy comes in enough colors and styles to keep everyone happy, including flake, metallic, glitter, and quartz in addition to solid colors.  

LIGHTING

Lighting in garages is characteristically dismal and unsuitable given the number of tasks performed by and in a garage. Garage lighting offers a significant improvement in a garage compared to the amount of money it costs to make the lighting in a garage magnificent. 

Upgrading the garage can make it a clean, tidy, well-lit, well-functioning space for whatever needs a homeowner may use it to fill. 

STORAGE

One of the essential functions of the garage is to provide secure, organized storage for household items that aren’t currently in use. By far, the easiest and most practical way to keep a garage organized is through the use of storage. Boxes tend to be unorganized, unattractive homes for vermin and insects, making garage cabinets and overhead storage an excellent investment. Garage storage solves many problems in a garage.

PAINT

Whether you decide to paint the garage door, or the garage interior depends on if you’re looking for curb appeal or looking to upgrade the interior. Some homeowners want their garage to be a place where they can spend large amounts of time, so they will drywall and paint the interior to make it into a more comfortable living space. 

Regardless of what type of upgrades you decide to do to your garage will be determined by what you and your family use the area for and how liveable it should be to meet those needs. If you need a garage door repair or maintenance, give us a call! We’d be happy to help.
