Garage Renovation
For most homeowners, the garage has become the primary entryway to their home. Also, as a gateway to most homes, the garage is part of a home’s focal point. Therefore, maintaining a clean, smooth, streamlined, and efficient garage is paramount to keeping up a welcoming presentation, as well as boosting the value of any home.
With over 415 combined years of experience, the Joe Wilde Company is proud to have partnered with many homeowners during their garage renovation process by assisting them with the purchase and the installation of a new garage door and accessories.
As with any particular project involving an investment of time and money, do your due diligence. Don’t overlook any details, no matter how insignificant, because when it comes to improving your home’s value, no feature is too small; every part of the house is considered including the garage.
An unfinished garage holds a bounty of design potential and garage renovations provide home resale value benefits later. Having a streamlined, efficient, clean, and organized garage improves not only the value of a home, but a garage renovation also creates ease of operation and provides storage solutions for tools, recreational equipment, and can even provide a space for any hobbies you may have. In short, garage overhauls add value to your home, daily life, as well as being aesthetically pleasing and effectually productive.

What Will Lower the Value of Your Home?

A dark, cluttered, unorganized garage is not conducive and may lower the value of your home. The simplest thing you can do is to de-clutter, clean up, and organize. You can add a Halogen Light Bar for instant light whenever you need it and you’ll have a vastly improved space.
One of the most vital but unseen improvements you should put into your renovation project is, adding insulation to both the walls and ceiling. This will improve the energy efficiency of any garage. You will also want to replace all the weather stripping around each window and door. Keeping a clean, dry, garage creates a very appealing, comfortable, and beneficial addition to any home.
Painting the walls is another simple improvement almost anyone can perform on their own with the abundance of tutorials and information on the internet. As far as the floor goes, this is a step you might want to leave to the professionals. There is a lot that may need to be done; could be concrete cracks, gaps, or you may have a surface that is not level. If you insist on doing it yourself, make sure you seal the floor after renovation.
A well-functioning garage starts from the ground up. Once you have a clean, empty, level space you need to light it properly; darkness is not a friend of resale value. Once you reach this step, it is time to add all the storage solutions you have researched and adequately planned out for your particular room.

Garage Storage

Regarding garage storage, you want to develop a flexible storage system that adapts to the seasons and all potential changes that could present themselves in the future. Find what appeals to you and will give you the most significant return on your investments.
Slatwall mounted ball racks, mesh baskets, modular cabinetry configured with tall storage lockers, overhead cabinets, and stainless steel countertops are very popular. Even after you sell, the buyer can arrange and rearrange things to fit their personal needs.

Garage Doors

Now that the garage is just how you want it to be, time to turn your attention to the garage door. The garage door is the face of most homes. So, a clean, well-maintained door is a must. The garage door opener must also function smoothly and as quietly as possible. You can rest assured that Joe Wilde Company can help with everything from garage doors, to parts and accessories. Remember, your goal is to showcase the excellent health of the home as a whole; you’re selling the appearance, strength, and functionality of the house.
As you can see, there are many renovations possible for your garage that enhance its beauty, functionality, usefulness, and ultimately increase the value of your home.
