4 Things to Consider Before Building a Garage Addition

If you’re interested in increasing the property value of your home, consider a garage addition. You will be able to store more vehicles and add an additional layer of security to your garage as a result of this renovation. Our home remodeling contractors in Evans, GA, are available when you are ready to learn more about this worthwhile addition. Northside Construction Services, Inc. can help you navigate several factors before building a new garage:

Building a Garage Addition

1. Garage Size

Your garage can serve a multitude of purposes aside from just housing your vehicles. For example, many homeowners use the extra space to store seasonal items, like yard equipment, bikes and skis. Alternatively, you can use your garage as a workspace or even an art studio. Before beginning construction, take some time to decide how you want to use your garage so that you can determine the correct size.   

2. Foundation Type

When it comes to foundation type, Northside Construction Services, Inc. can help advise on what will work best for your new garage. The size, scope and budget of your addition will all impact this decision. This is because different foundation types, like concrete slab-on-grade or full-depth basements, vary in cost.

3. Building Materials

We have experience with materials that can handle Lawrenceville, GA’s hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. In terms of design, we also offer various styles and looks for your new garage. From brick and chipboard siding to stone or stucco exteriors, you can choose materials that best complement the existing design of your home.

4. Local Building Codes

The laws and regulations that govern garage additions vary depending on where you live. Therefore, it’s crucial to hire a professional contractor familiar with your neighborhood’s specific requirements.
