Commonly Asked Questions About Garage Remodels And Conversions

What Is Needed To Turn A Garage Into A Residential Housing Unit?

For your garage to be successfully converted into a residential housing unit, it must comply with the Building and Fire Code, which includes a structurally sound foundation and walls and provide for necessary utilities such as water, electricity, and sewage. Your conversion must also consider the new unit’s HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) needs. Using a ductless heat pump (mini-split system) separately from the primary residence’s current HVAC system is a popular solution for many homeowners who convert their garage. 

Your garage’s insulation is another area that must be addressed and most likely upgraded for a successful conversion. The garage door’s need for replacement will depend on how well the project complies with the local energy and construction codes, particularly concerning insulation. Cavalier Builders has a team ready to help you achieve your conversion dream today! With a commitment to quality and extensive industry experience, we are a valuable source for homeowners who wish to ensure that their conversion is done right and meets all necessary Building Codes.

What Are Some Common Issues Faced With When Converting A Garage?

Converting a non-residential structure to residential use, such as your garage, must comply with the Building Code requirements. Typical improvements or necessary alterations could include:

  • Making structural improvements when installing a window or door opening or replacing a garage door.
  • Changes may need to be made to the existing roof structure.
  • Strengthening the foundation or updating the current slab.
  • Establishing a moisture barrier between the flooring and the slab.
  • Ensuring that the CA Title 24 energy code is met and sufficient insulation is provided.
