All it takes is one small change to breathe life into an existing space. In the hands of our skilled craftsmen, a garage conversion can transform your entire home and reward you with an incredible asset for years to come.
Upgrade and Invest in a Flexible New Living Space
With Californian restrictions on conversions relaxed in 2017, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of an underused garage. Now, at a fraction of the cost of a large-scale home renovation, you could have a beautiful and versatile extra living area for you and your family, or even a fully independent investment property to capture the strong rental market.
Remodeling your garage is also an excellent idea for the long-term investor. A high-quality conversion can add significant resale value to your home, rewarding you not only today but long into the future. And with dual-function double garage conversions also a possibility, you don’t even have to lose your parking place.
The Conversion Process: Your Vision and Our Expertise
From initial requirements to the finishing touches, the professional garage conversion contractors at Dave’s Remodeling Inc. will work with you to bring your ideas and needs to life. We believe in two-way communication during every step of the process so that you’re always in control and we can truly achieve your vision.
Every project starts with an in-depth consultation. We need to make sure that you’re comfortable with the process and that we both have a conversion strategy that suits you. If you know exactly what you need, then we’ll be ready to jump in and turn that into reality. But if you have questions or need any suggestions on how to best utilize the space, we’ll be happy to help.
Designs and Permits
The next step is to come up with a concrete design that adheres closely to all building regulations while also maximizing comfort, beauty, and value. Since converting a garage into an apartment—and therefore constructing a habitable living space—generally requires elements like additional wiring, plumbing, insulation, windows, and more, we’ll need to take those into account.
From laying out a floor plan to fixtures and fittings and finishing touches, our team will work with you and our trusted subcontractors to plan out the perfect conversion. At the same time, we’ll arrange the necessary permits, cover scheduling, and finalize a budget so that we’re ready to start and you know what to expect.
With a start date set and construction ready to begin, we’ll have one final meeting with everyone involved in the conversion, just to make sure that everything will run smoothly. As the garage conversion takes place, we’ll be working hard to minimize disruption to you and your family. And any time you have questions or concerns, we’ll be there.
What Costs to Expect
Due to the highly variable nature of requirements, size, and materials, the cost of converting a detached garage into a living space is different for every project. Generally speaking, a conversion of a double garage into an apartment costs roughly $20,000 to $30,000. Considering that a garage conversion is estimated to add 10% to your home’s resale value, however, the potential income far outweighs the expense.
