Garage Remodeling Cost

Families are always changing and growing. For many people, at some point during home ownership, the need arises to create an addition to the home to make more space. At Potomac Garage Solutions we see garages for what they could be—great functional spaces. And sometimes to achieve this, some remodeling will be required. On today’s blog we’d like to discuss garage remodeling cost.
For many a remodel of the garage provides an opportunity to add an entirely new room to the house that will become a functional part of the actual house. Because the garage is already erected to be structurally sound and has a foundation, converting a garage space comes with less cost than building a new addition to the house. Garage remodels are in general much less expensive a new addition to a home; however, there are of course still costs associated with the project.
Garage Remodeling Cost 
Most garage remodels are estimated to cost between $5,000 and $10,000 with the average remodel costing around $7,000. What factors add to the cost of such remodels?
Windows
If a windowless garage space is to be converted to a functional part of the main home, it’s likely that the homeowner will want to implement windows so that light and air may enter the space. On average, this part of the project costs from $250 to $500.
Plumbing
Though many garage spaces are wired for electricity, many do not have plumbing lines going to them. In evaluating a garage conversion project, the homeowner should evaluate whether plumbing will be necessary in the space and if so, how much it will cost to extend the plumbing in the main part of the home to the garage.
Insulation
If a garage is to be part of the home at large, it needs to be insulated to keep heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer.
Flooring
Most garages floors are cement. If this is not the look that the homeowner desires for the new room, carpeting or tile will have to be installed in the space. Generally speaking, ceramic tiles cost approximately $15 per square foot and vinyl tile and carpeting costs approximately $5 per square foot.
Electricity
Garage Remodeling Cost 
Although most garages are wired to have electricity, a remodel will often necessitate an electrician to update or change the lighting and wiring for the space.
Even if a homeowner does not intend to convert the garage space into a part of the main home, many homeowners decide to remodel the space to promote productivity and organization. This too comes with costs, including floor sealant, organization modules, and cabinetry for storage.
