Due to life changes, many homeowners often find themselves in need of more space. Adding on to your home is a solution but one that can get expensive. Due to its affordability, many homeowners are now turning towards garage conversions.
A garage conversion is the process of transforming your garage into something different from what it was. Typically, garages contain open spaces for parking cars or for storing items. This open format gives homeowners a space to add anything from a bedroom, family room, studio, gym, etc.
Renovating your home requires specific permits and guidelines that vary depending on the extent of the work. For example, constructing another bedroom or studio may require the need to route electricity and/or water lines so specific permits will be required for this job. Depending on the location of the home, constructing a new addition can cost anywhere from $25-80k. A garage conversion doesn’t typically require extensive work such as a new foundation or a retrofit. Therefore, garage conversions can cost an average of $15-20k. However, if your garage conversion involves electric and/or water line changes, you’ll be paying a lot more.
Due to the added living space, a garage conversion can help increase the value of your property. According to HomeAdvisor, converting garage space to living space can give homeowners an ROI of up to 80%. However, in order to achieve a positive ROI for the new space during appraisal, it is important to consider the quality of work involved. A professionally converted garage can create appeal while a poorly done conversion can have a negative effect. Be sure to keep an eye on the aesthetics by making sure the walls, flooring, lighting, and paint flow with the rest of your home.
At D&L Builders, quality assurance is our priority. We always begin with a consultation to explain the process and make sure this is the direction the client wants to take. From there, we inspect the site to get familiar with how the garage is built and see if it is suitable for conversion.
Garage Conversions require specific permits and guidelines that we must follow. We stand by our work and promise to review all permits, follow all guidelines, and deliver complete satisfaction. When you invest in your home with a garage conversion, you want to get high-quality work that is built to last. Many contractors improperly renovate by overlooking steps in the framing and finishing stages. At D&L Builders, our framing & finishing crews work efficiently to meet deadlines, pay close attention to detail, and maintain cleanliness at all times.
