  • Opening Intro -

    Comedy Central says: “Only in America do we park cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.”

    If you can no longer park that Mercedes, Lincoln or even a Toyota where it’s intended to go, it’s time to remodel your garage.


In fact, being unable to park your car inside your garage is only one of four telltale signs to remodel. Like exposing valuable automobiles to the elements, each of the other three reasons has financial consequences too.

Size that Tempts and Matters

There are few standards for garage size. Still, a modest sized, two-car garage will measure 25 feet by 25 feet. That makes up 625 square feet, and might be the largest open space in your home. With the cars gone, an empty garage is a tempting place to store things. If the spaces along the walls or at the back of the garage are filled with boxes, bicycles, snow blowers, lawn mowers, toys, or what have you, a remodel will give them a safe, out-of-the-way home. In this case, you still have room to park your car, but can you and passengers get safely in and out of your vehicle without risking door dings? Those annoying blemishes devalue your car and can be expensive to repair.

The Handyman Cometh & Taketh Your Money

Our homes are in constant need of small repairs. With guides like Sears or simple Google searches, we can find how to repair most anything. But if we lack workspace or tool storage, then we’ll be hunting Craigslist/Angieslist for handymen to drop in and charge us $70-$80 per hour to mend closets, fix light fixtures, or repair a torn screen. A remodel will give you workspace and peace of mind.

Garage Door Means Curb Appeal with a Smile

What about the outside of your garage? Most home designs place the garage at the front of the home. That 25-foot wide garage represents a significant portion of your home’s curb view and curb appeal significantly impacts home value. According to The Garage Door Co Ltd., a garage door remodel offers one of the best financial returns compared to other improvement projects.

In Need of a Man Cave

Sometimes a man just needs a space where he can go and just be by himself. Whether it be to watch a football game with his friends, work on a project, or just to have some alone time, a man needs a space that is just for him. The best way to go about this is to have a garage space for his and her vehicle, but then to have a separate room within the garage for a big screen TV, a couch, maybe a mini fridge, and for his work area. This will make for the perfect place where the man of the house can go and just relax and work on his man projects.

The monetary impact of an unsuitable garage is no laughing matter. A remodel, complete with improved garage door, pays for itself. Remodel today to protect and enhance your two most valuable assets, your home and your car.
