Garages are often the most looked over room of a home. They sit there and gather dust, spiders, and possibly a little trash. Not every garage is so neglected, but many are. It’s truly a shame in some ways because the space could be better utilized.
Giving your garage a makeover is a very rewarding project. You suddenly find ways to organize, store things, and find a place for tools and lawn equipment. But to get there, you’ll need a garage remodeling plan.
Here are few ideas and tips about garages from our Lancaster County general contractors at EZ General Construction, Inc.
Insulation & Drywall
Most garages aren’t insulated or even drywalled. This can cause a number of problems in addition to it being ugly. First, exposed wires are not good. Plumbing pipes leading to the washing machine and water heater can easily freeze. And your home could lose much-needed heat through the wall between the garage and house. Adding insulation and installing drywall is the first step to a great garage makeover.
Garage Floor Epoxy or Painting
That old, stained garage floor needs a new look. Ask your Lancaster remodeling contractor to take care of the floor during the makeover. You would be amazed at what a simple concrete stain and seal can do for this space. And if you do laundry in the garage, it will make a huge difference. Protect and seal the garage floor with epoxy or concrete stain. You’ll really love your garage now!
Paint The Walls
That dirty, stained drywall has got to go. The best remedy is to paint the garage. The walls, ceilings, shelving, flooring, cabinetry, and other things can be painted. This room is nearly finished. Oh, and if there’s popcorn ceiling texture that’s flaking off due to moisture, get rid of it and apply a good quality primer and sealant. That stuff gets dirty really fast in the garage. Yuck.
Revamping The Storage Capacity
With a good plan, your remodeling contractor can easily install all the storage systems you need in the garage. You can have them install custom features too, like a nice new workbench, cabinets, and tool drawers. With the right plan, remodeling the garage will result in a renewed space that you’re glad to live in. No more spider webs, no more grime.
Replacing Your Garage Door
When a garage door gets old, it not only looks bad but also doesn’t function properly. One of the biggest problems is how it seals the space between the bottom of the door and the floor. This is where dirt and other environmental elements most often come in. With a good door that has a proper bottom seal, you’ll be able to enjoy a cleaner space.
