Building onto your home is always a popular way to add more space and appeal to your property. However, before you add any upgrade to your home, you should carefully consider everything this addition can provide. Adding a garage addition to your home can be a significant undertaking, but if you’re looking for the benefits this addition provides, it may be just the thing to makeover your house. If you are considering planning a garage addition this year, read on to be reminded of all that these home additions offer.
More Space for Large or Outdoor Items
Garage additions have multiple uses: as a place to store vehicles away from the weather and a place that can add valuable storage space. Garages can be an excellent place to store large, outdoor equipment like lawnmowers and snow blowers, which you may not have any other place for. If you’re particularly handy, you can also add a workshop or tool-storage space in your garage.
When you build your garage addition, you can easily build plenty of storage space into the garage. It’s relatively easy to add shelving and racks to your garage that provide storage space for seasonal items or supplies for your vehicle.
One factor to consider when designing your new garage is how many bays you want. Determining how you want to use your new garage and how much space you need will help you determine how many bays should be included.
Increased Curb Appeal and Home Value
Adding a garage to your home means you are adding more outdoor storage space and conveniences that a garage can bring to your everyday life. Because of this extra space and convenience, garages tend to increase the market value of a home.
The Potential to Add More Living Space
Once you add a new garage, you may consider adding an in-law suite or living space to this new addition. Since you’re already adding a foundation and a roof, throwing in a living suite is relatively inexpensive. Many homeowners find significant value in adding this separate living space for their guests or potential renters.
Protection for Valuable Assets
Your garage addition is a crucial tool for protecting valuable assets, particularly vehicles. You avoid exposing your cars to seasonal weather effects like snow and ice, falling leaves, hailstorms, and even pollen when you own a garage. When you store your vehicle in your garage, you can guarantee that it stays beautiful and undamaged.
When you store other outdoor items like lawn equipment or outdoor furniture in your garage, you can also protect them and lengthen their average lifespan. If you’re thinking of building a new garage, consider how these benefits will improve your home.
