Garage Renovation

Potomac Garage Solutions has been providing quality garage renovation services for both commercial and residential garages since 2003.

Garage Renovation

Renovating your garage can be quite an undertaking. This is especially true if you’ll be conducting a full makeover.

The process is not quite the same as a casual home renovation. And it’s definitely not one that you should take lightly. Besides the fact that you need to always get a professional garage renovation company to help you out, it’s also important that you avoid making some mistakes throughout the process.

Some of these mistakes include;

Not having a strategic plan

Starting a garage renovation without a solid plan can be very detrimental to you. It’s important for you to have a clear and achievable design in place so you know what to do at every point in time. From there, you can build the know-how and purchase the resources required to complete the renovation.

The plan should be as comprehensive as possible. Where do you store your garage’s content while the process is being done? Can you get materials from a convenience store or will you have to contact someone? If a process will affect the renovation on any front, have a plan for it.

Using a low-quality floor coating

When your garage floor gets damaged, it can have a significant negative effect on your garage’s appearance. And when it comes to replacements or repairs for your garage floor, many homeowners tend to choose cheap floor paint.

Over time, you'll find that floor paint just doesn’t do it. The option might be inexpensive, but it offers little to no protection for your floor and won’t last so long. So, over time, you’ll end up spending more money to fix this mistake.

Not maximizing your garage space

When your garage renovation is planned poorly, you could end up with a clunky space that doesn’t necessarily serve you.

This is why it is important for you to make the most of the garage’s space. With storage racks, cabinets, and more, you can easily utilize all of the space you didn’t know you had before and effectively change the way your garage looks - and works.

Be especially careful to look into your garage’s overhead and wall space. With proper tools, you’ll be able to take out clutter and get more space to move around and keep more items.

Not having a storage plan

A storage plan is also very important as you work out the garage renovation. While the renovation allows you to optimize what you have right now, there’s a significant chance that you will still need to store more items.

With a storage plan, you’ll be able to avoid any clutter again in the garage. Build a plan for storage that allows for orderliness, and you won’t need to rearrange the garage every now and then.

Car Parking Lifts

Are you looking for car parking lifts? Potomac Garage Solutions has been offering a wide variety of car parking lifts for many years throughout the Maryland and Washington DC areas with professionalism, craftsmanship and great customer care.

Car Parking Lifts

Your garage is one of the most important parts of your home. It helps you to take care of a great deal of clutter and materials, preventing all of these from constituting a nuisance in the house itself.

However, the garage also has the dual task of keeping your car. And many times, we tend to forget this task when we have so much clutter to deal with. Eventually, these tasks overlap and you find that your car could get damaged as a result of the amount of clutter in the garage. 

Honestly, this shouldn’t happen. There’s no reason why your car should have to suffer so much because your garage is filled with a lot of junk. Fortunately, car parking lifts could help you to solve this problem. There are several telltale signs that inform you of your need for car parking lifts. Some of them include:


You can’t seem to create enough garage space

It goes without saying, but this is the top reason for you to get parking lifts. Garage clutter is one of the biggest factors preventing you from effectively utilizing your garage parking. And sometimes, even the most organized garage storage systems fail when it comes to creating enough space for you to park your car.

With a parking lift, however, you can easily solve this problem. A parking lift essentially doubles the amount of parking space you have, allowing you to park one car above the other.


You can’t expand the garage

When you have insufficient parking space, one of the most viable options for you will be to expand your garage. However, this might not be possible. Building laws might not allow you, and you could even find that the expansion process won’t be so worth it in the long run.

With car lifts, you won’t need to go through a garage expansion. Simply install a lift, multiply your available parking space, and save yourself the cost and hassle of undergoing a garage expansion.


You’d like to run your own vehicle servicing

If you’re experienced at auto maintenance, you’d know that finding the underside of the vehicle can be a hassle. You don’t have enough space to work with, and you also have to deal with issues like poor visibility and discomfort.

However, a car parking lift could actually help with this. You can use different types of lifts to improve the ease of vehicle maintenance:


     Scissor car lifts: They’re cheap and can help you to access most parts of the vehicle.

     2-post car lifts: These are structures with arms attached to two posts that support hoisted vehicles. They make it easy to access all parts of the vehicle and complete whatever repairs you’d like to work on.

     4-post car lifts: In terms of versatility, hardly does any option beat this one. It’s suited for most vehicle repairs, and it allows you to even park another car underneath the hoisted one.

Choose any of these, and you'll have no issues completing your vehicle repairs.
