The floors of your new space are a unique issue. Your garage is built with drainage in mind. Code requirements mandate that the concrete slab has a slope built into it to ensure water drains away from the home. The installation of the subfloor will correct the slope issue of your floor. Using a subfloor allows your new space to be converted back into a garage should the next home owner wish to do so.
Leaky doors and windows let in uncomfortable drafts and increase heating and cooling costs. Check your garage service door to be sure it has good weather stripping and a threshold that seals tightly to the bottom of the door. In most cases, if your service door is missing a threshold and weather stripping, it’s more efficient to replace the door with a new, weather-tight version. You can buy an inexpensive prehung metal exterior door at home centers and lumberyards.
Hiring a remodeling expert really is necessary. A professional will ensure that all building permits and inspections are up to date. They can also redo your garage space to make it more appealing -- both visually and functionally. Garages are an important consideration for homebuyers when deciding whether to buy a property. Displaying a professional finish can go a long way in helping you get the best price possible for your home.
We had an excellent experience with Renown. Fast responses, excellent service, and they fought with our insurance company for what was truly needed. My only regret was not letting them handle the insurance company conversations from the beginning, rather than dealing with trying to coordinate myself. Once they took over direct communication everything went very smoothly. I would highly recommend Renown Roofing and Construction.
