Garages the Best Way to Improve Home Value

Why Steel Garages Can Add Value to Home

Adding a detached garage appeals to buyers because it adds functionality to the property by providing a place to park vehicles and store equipment.

More Square Footage

As a property owner, you’re probably aware that the most common way to increase your home value is to add square footage. This is because the value of your property is determined by the market rate per square foot of the other homes in your area. While other factors also exist such as the age and condition of the property, the size of the property in most cases has the most direct impact on price. Adding a detached garage counts toward your home’s overall square footage.

Transforming Existing Garage Space

If you already have an attached garage, you may be asking yourself, “Why would I add a detached garage?” The answer is, you can transform your existing garage into a more traditional living space. If your family has outgrown your current home, you could turn your current garage space into a functional bedroom by finishing it with insulation, drywall and carpet. In most cases, the garage is also an easy place to add a bathroom to a new bedroom, because in many homes, the plumbing is located within close proximity to the garage.
