A garage renovation is a long-term investment. In other cases, upgrading garage doors or addressing a few flaws may be enough to prevent a full remodel. But what are some clear signs that it’s time to renovate your garage? When does it become absolutely important to install new garage floor finishes, shelving, and simply freshen up the space?
Continue reading to find out more. We’ll go over five signs that your garage needs to be remodeled further down.
1. High Electricity Bills
Inspect your garage for poor or deteriorating insulation. Your garage’s cracks and holes could affect your home’s temperature. Your HVAC system may be working harder than necessary.
If your garage door is older, you should be extra cautious. Electricity bills may have always been high due to outdated models. These designs don’t account for energy efficiency, which could save you hundreds annually.
2. You’re Selling Your Home
If you plan to sell your home, you want to maximize its worth. Your garage is an excellent choice for a home improvement project. You can attract more buyers by upgrading its appearance and functionality. The garage door is an easy way to boost your home’s curb appeal. It can also affect how your interior space is perceived.
Then there’s the lighting and the interior space. Prospective homebuyers will be happy to see another room with fantastic central lighting, floor remodels, and eco-friendly amenities.
3. You’re Bored of Unfinished Walls and Floors
A garage doesn’t have to be boring. You wouldn’t want to spend much time in a room with an unfinished interior and no garage floor epoxy. With a little creativity and care, your garage may be as fun as your living room.
Polyaspartic coatings can protect your garage floor from spills and stains. The coatings are tough and have a high elasticity combined with a high surface hardness, giving them excellent abrasion resistance. Basically, polyaspartic is the holy grail of garage-floor coatings. These floors are safe, long-lasting, and have a granite-like appearance and feel.
4. Security Weak Points
Garages are often the easiest entry points into a home. You could implement security measures to deter burglars from entering your home and hold them accountable if they do.
Metal grills on windows keep robbers from utilizing them as entry points. Investing in a sturdier garage door could also help deter intruders. Motion detection lights, CCTV cameras, and even security floodlights can help deter theft.
5. Your Garage Is Old and Worn Out
While repairs can be done, eventually a door’s mechanics wear out. Some major faults with your garage door’s appearance and performance may occur over time. Replacing it is worth more than salvaging it.
