Stage Your Garage | Raleigh Garage Door Repair
You probably know at least one homeowner that has a spotlessly clean and organized garage. Chances are, the tools are organized, the walls are clean and the floor is painted. They also have their garage door maintained regularly by a Raleigh garage door repair guy, as well.
While you might feel inclined to go into their garage and throw everything on the ground and kick it around a bit, it’s best to just take advantage of the situation. You’ll be able to take their garage and use it as an example of how yours will look when you’re done cleaning and organizing!
You don’t want to get mad at the fact that their garage is better than yours – you want to appreciate it and aim to get yours in that same condition!
Now comes the (not-so) fun part! First, you’ll want to pull each and every item out of your garage, until the entire room is empty. Then, clean the garage until it’s spotless. Of course, cleaning a garage isn’t anything like cleaning the inside of a home. There are going to be oil stains, grease on the walls, and more grime that you don’t typically find inside the home.
The best way to tackle the grime and remove it is to power-wash it. Once, you’re done, use a paint scraper to remove anything that’s left behind such as paint splatters and other things that are stuck on the walls or floor. For oil stains, use an oil and grease remover cleaner to make sure they are lifted from the surfaces.
Once you’re done with all the cleaning and your garage is spotless, it’s time to paint the walls and floor! Use a semi-gloss paint for the walls and an epoxy coating for the floor. You’re going to be very pleased with things once the paint dries and you’re able to see how much work you’ve actually done!
The next step is to get organized! All that “stuff” you’re storing in the driveway right now must go somewhere! Hopefully, not all of it will find its way back to the garage.
Some of the best items to use for organization are:
- Built-in cabinetry
- Heavy-duty storage bins
- Shelving with smaller storage bins
For hanging tools, the pegboard will be great! As for the built- cabinets, store your bulky items so that there’s not much sitting around on the floor of the garage. After all, you’ll want to show off that newly epoxy painted floor! Using the built-in cabinets, storage bins and shelving will help keep your garage looking well-maintained and orderly!
Donate all items you don’t need or want and put the rest of the things you won’t need while the house is on the market in a storage facility, or at a friend or family member’s house. You’ll want to keep as much out of your garage as possible during showings. Also, be sure to move the cars out of the garage during showings, as well.
We hope these tips will help you get your garage in tip-top shape so that it will wow potential buyers as they come to view your home!
