This means, for every dollar you invest in the project, your house value could increase by 80¢! Curb appeal matters in this equation; building a garage that reflects your home’s architecture and fits the neighborhood will help keep your investment value high.

 

There are certainly practical reasons to remodel your garage with a renovation. If it is attached to your house, you could have a large impact on your energy bills if you address issues with airflow from windows and garage doors, as well as add insulation. And, if you have one vehicle that sits out all winter, you can protect it from the harsh elements by adding on to your garage. Beyond just adding value to your home, a remodel can really change the way you live.

If storage in an ongoing issue for your household, take a look at how the garage could be reconfigured to give you additional shelving or cabinetry.

Or, if you’re interested in increasing the livable space in your house,  garage remodeling or adding an addition could provide space for a year-round workshop, home office, or even an additional bedroom or guest suite. Many websites and TV shows will lead you to believe that this is a simple do-it-yourself project. Just like any other home improvement, we always recommend consulting with a general contractor before you start. With so many factors, including design, choosing and purchasing materials, managing sub-contractors, pulling permits, communicating with inspectors, and simply staying on time and on budget, a great general contractor can be worth their weight in gold.

We pride ourselves on our high level of communication throughout the renovation process. One of our top priorities is to build a trusting relationship with our customers.

COR Improvements also offers a 2-year warranty (the State of Wisconsin only requires a 1-year guarantee).

After the first year, we’ll come back at no charge to you to see how you’ve been using your space, and make recommendations for maintenance to help you keep the renovation looking and feeling new longer. (Complete terms of warranty will be reviewed with you prior to contracting).
