3 Reasons to Convert Your Garage into a Living Area

Last updated 6 years ago

Expanding the square footage of your home may be easier than you think. Below, learn a few reasons why you should consider converting your garage into a living area with the help of a professional contractor:

  1. Versatile Opportunity: Garage conversions offer more than bonus living space—they can address a variety of home needs. Craftsman, vehicle restorers, and hobby enthusiasts can utilize the new living space as a workshop. Those expecting a new addition to the family may consider transforming their garage into a dedicated play area. A new bedroom or suite can accommodate the occasional house guest or function as in-law quarters. Busy professionals can boost their productivity at home with an added home office.
  2. Affordable Home Addition: Adapting a garage is considerably cheaper than constructing a new home addition from scratch. The pre-existing structure of your garage means your new living space is well on its way to completion. Conversion tasks include adding insulation, damp proofing the walls, and adding wall supports, which is why you’ll need the help of a dedicated residential and commercial contractor to help you complete your conversion.  
  3. Boosted Home Value: The reduced cost of garage conversion makes it an economical strategy for raising the sale price of your house. A new buyer may be attracted to your home addition for the same reasons you added it. In cases like these, your home addition has the potential to pay for itself in resale value.
