Garages are an important part of homes today. They’re a place to house our vehicles, a “front door” to our homes and also a place to store belongings that need to be protected from the elements. Many people take their garage for granted but few fully realize its true worth. Those that don’t have a garage are probably more likely to understand the importance of a garage and often wish they had one. Homeowners that don’t have a garage wish they had a shield from rain as they run from their car to the front door, a space for storage, a workshop or even a place for their home office.
Garage Addition | Raleigh Garage Doors
If you’re thinking of making some home improvements or additions in the future, why not consider a garage addition? Remodeling magazine’s latest Cost vs. Value Report states that those who invest a national average of $52,382 in a two-car garage addition can expect to recoup about 65% of the cost at resale. Whether you sell your home later on or just convert the added value to a home equity line, a garage addition will be great, all around! More space for your home, a place to house your vehicles and added value to your home!
There are several things to consider before jumping in and planning for your garage addition. First, you must consider code and zoning restrictions in your area. Planning and designing comes after this first, important step.
