Factors to Consider When Having a New Garage Installed

When you need to have a new garage installed, you want to be sure it’s done right the first time. A garage can be a large investment so knowing what you want and what to expect is essential. Your budget, the style that appeals to you, and how much space you need are the bare minimum decisions you’ll need to make before the construction can start.

Preferred Garage Style

Choosing a style of the garage can be overwhelming since there are so many options. For example, some of your choices include A-frame, chalet, classic, Cape Cod, double wide, Dutch barn, and New England deluxe garages. On top of that, custom options are available so you can make sure the garage looks exactly the way you want it to.

One good option is to choose a home that looks good with your home. Shared or complementary styles and colors are a common choice. It brings together the look of the entire property and ensures everyone takes a second look.

Available Budget

Budget is another important factor to consider. Most people are limited on the amount they can spend on a garage. Some might choose to spend the bare minimum for a garage but that isn’t the right choice for everyone. Adding in the extras that matter to you will ensure you enjoy the garage for years to come.

You should also consider the return on investment. While you might spend several tens of thousands of dollars on a two-car garage, you can expect about a 2/3 return on investment. That means most of that money would come back to you if you decided to sell your home in the future.

Material Choices

A lot of garages are built of vinyl or wood and both can be durable and last for years. However, the material you choose might vary based on the look you want or how much maintenance you wish to do. Wood garages have a more rustic look and can blend with your home but have more maintenance needs. Vinyl is low maintenance and durable but may not have the aesthetic you desire.

Another thing to think about is which company is right to install the new garage on your property. It’s a good idea to select Stanley Exteriors who have lots of experience installing garages similar to the one you want. Look into reviews and ask questions before you decide on the right company.
