Upgrade Your Garage

Your garage doesn’t have to be a place for disorganized storage or a place for your car to get relief from the cold. In fact, over the past five years or so, the garage has had a renaissance. Homeowners throughout the area are choosing to enhance their garage as a part of their property and it is quickly becoming one of the best places in the home.

Are you ready to upgrade your garage and turn it into a space that is designed for work, organization, storage, and even entertaining? Here are a few options to consider as you rebuild or refurbish your garage.

Better Siding and Doors
Start your garage redesign from the outside, making the exterior look its best. Match the siding to your house and consider an upgraded door. Double doors or carriage style doors can take your cookie cutter garage and make it stand out from your neighbor’s.

Make a Great Floor
Now that the exterior looks great, begin your interior work with a new floor. Cold concrete floors are not your only option. We love epoxy floors in garages for the durability and for the style. Your new floors will look sleek and are the perfect foundation for your new space.

Add Built In Storage
Built in storage cabinets are not just for your living room. You can add these custom pieces for your garage as well, giving you plenty of space to store tools and seasonal decorations, lawn bags and lawn games. Use quality materials and paint them a uniform color that matches your home’s design style.

Light It Up
Garages don’t have to feel dark and dingy. Add custom overhead track lighting in addition to the standard light that comes with your garage door. While you are working with an electrician, be sure to add in plenty of electrical outlets in handy spaces throughout your garage as well.

Are you ready to design your dream garage? At Stanley Exteriors, we can guide you through the entire process, from any demolition required to design questions, village permits to construction. You will love working with our experienced team of contractors and will appreciate our commitment to customer communication. Give us a call to get started today!
