Modern homes have gone a long way in terms of style and function rolled into one amazing place of abode. Thus the usual and conventional home ideas observed in the past are long passee and irrelevant in contemporary times. Just as in the cases of home garages it is no longer confined to the traditional car storage and parking area. As an integral part of the house it is considered an asset that may boost the market value of the property depending on the creativity and resourcefulness of the home owner in upgrading his garage. Now more than ever is the perfect time to think of ways to transform your idle and space consuming home car garage into a more livable and functional space.
Well maybe its time to get your wife off your back and get it cleared out. Then earn some brownie points by fitting some modern garage flooring. With todays modern materials you can cover up that old concrete floor very inexpensively to give an almost showroom finish. Most garage floors will be ready to take on many types of flooring with the minimum of preparation. Unless you have a very uneven surface a quick sweep out maybe fill in any cracks and you should be good to go. Anything worse such as large holes or lumps should be dealt with as these will affect the finished look of any new flooring put on top. There is whole range of interlocking garage floor tile available in a wide choice of colors. These are constructed from PVC and are fitted in a matter of hours and dont involve any adhesives. This is a safe non slip surface that is resistant to oil petrol and many other chemicals. Low maintenance very durable and comfortable underfoot.
Semi-custom doors are the next level and make up the vast majority of garage door sales. Semi-custom doors allow the home owner to choose materials colors and windows based on set styles and materials. The number and shape of panels materials insulation or not and hardware can be selected to formulate a near custom garage door for less than the cost of a custom door.
Check the Safety Features: Every once in a while ensure that the safety features of the door are working properly. Modern garage doors are built with cutting edge technology for safety such as alarms and closing/opening features that cannot be breached. If the safety features are not functioning properly the door itself will not work. Check the settings of the door using the manufacturers manual. Routinely Check the Opener: You may be using a remote voice recognition or vision recognition technologies for opening the door. Sometimes when the door refuses to open the problem may lie with the opener. Conduct routine checks to ensure that the opener is working properly especially after returning from a holiday or when you have not used the garage for a long time. If there is a problem then you need to contact a garage door repair service.
And of course the roof should consist of 1 roof vent per 1 car in garage. Vents allow the lumber to breathe and not rot and buckle. If the garage door is over 16 feet in span it is recommended to use laminated veneer lumber as a header which supports the weight of the roof and overhead door. The header is installed above the garage door opening. A ½ horsepower garage door opener with two remote controls is also recommended to make life a bit more convenient instead of opening the overhead door manually.
