Benefits To Adding A Garage On To Your Home

March 6, 2022

With every home improvement or upgrade you plan for your home, it is very important that you consider the benefits you will be able to enjoy from each project. A garage addition is a great way to add a versatile space to your home and increase the market value of it. Garage additions create a significant convenience factor while keeping your home and overall property upkeep on-point. Here are a few of the biggest benefits of adding on a garage to your home:

More Space

A garage addition is one of the ways to add more space to your home. These types of additions can almost double your available space. This gives you a place to park your vehicles to free up the driveway for guests to use when they come over to visit. It also provides a place that adds some valuable storage space for items like outdoor equipment like lawnmowers, 4-wheelers, fishing poles, bikes and more. 

A garage can be such a versatile space and can even be used as an extra room. One of the useful ways to utilize a garage addition is to designate part or all of it as a workshop, office, or playroom. Really, the possibilities are endless with Cavalier Builders Inc .

Additional Storage

Given the additional room that the garage additions provide to a home, they can serve as a great way to gain some additional storage space. Shelving and racks can be installed in the garage to provide room for items that receive more occasional use such as seasonal outdoor decorations and automotive cleaning supplies.

One of the things to also consider is, how many bays do you want to have. Having an idea of how you want to use the additional storage is a good idea. Thinking about what you will need to store in it, can help you determine how much space and bays will be needed.

Increase Home Value and Curb Appeal

Adding on a garage does not automatically increase the living square footage inside your home. It does, however, increase the square footage of the space under the roof. A lot of homeowners appreciate the convenience that a garage can offer to everyday life. 

For these reasons, a garage addition will help increase the market value of your home. Adding a garage will also enhance the home’s curb appeal. Having a place to work in private or to park vehicles out of sight, makes the front of the home look much cleaner while protecting your vehicles too. 

Protection for Valuable Assets 

A garage addition helps to protect your most valuable assets by providing a safe place to store them. One of the most beneficial aspects to having a garage addition is that it helps to protect your vehicles from any wear and tear from the outside elements. The protection that a garage provides, helps to preserve their value and depreciate a lot slower.

These are just a few of the amazing benefits of adding a garage to your home. When thinking about your next home improvement project, be sure to give some consideration to the ways a garage can improve you and your family’s life.
