Garage doors for a long time were manually operated forcing the driver to stop the car and come out of the cart to open the door and the take some time to close it once they have driven the car into the safety of the garage. All these steps made old type garage doors very inconvenient as compared to the modern garage doors. With the increase in population and the amount of activity that every individual has to take part in many people do not have the time to perform all the above procedures just to be able to pack or leave their packing.
A Guide to Modern Garage Renovation So what exactly are the best options to consider when remodeling this area and converting it into a multi-functional and productive space of your house? There are actually vital components to consider that most home owners need to give utmost importance. First and foremost is the financial allocation you can afford to spend in this home project. Be sure that you have sufficient budget in order to start and finish your renovation or else it may give you more losses than profit. You also need to allot your time into the remodeling project since it is not a minor cosmetic home improvement after all. Garage is not the usual room you can find inside your house therefore when trying to make changes expect major modification and reconstruction to follow. Home owners also need to spend time securing the necessary building and construction permits depending on how and what they prefer to be made in this area.
The Structure of the framed garage should start with waterproof bottom plates secured by anchor bolts in the concrete slab. The walls should be built with 2 by 4 studs 16 inches apart to guarantee a structurally strong wall and 8 feet high. Rafters should be 2 by 6 studs 16 inches apart to support snow and other elements. Make sure the rafters are securely embedded into the top plates of the walls with the bird mouth cut method. Once the sheathing is installed on the walls and roof vinyl siding is the most recommended siding as it is the most maintenance free and economical in the market.
Modern styles come in very many designs and shapes and can be flexible enough to meet your specific conditions. It is however important to note that the cost of them are likely to cost slightly more than the old manual ones. This however should not be a deterrent since the high cost is only a onetime cost that cannot be compared to the convenience and safety that they can offer.
Planning and Preparation Just like any other successful ventures careful planning and preparation for whats ahead is essential in renovating your garage to a livable space. Have a clear-cut idea of what transformation you wish done in this area. Would you like to turn it into a living room extension lounge and childrens play room study room or office space among others? The kind of construction needed is basically dependent on what type of room you want your garage converted. Thus a more complex remodeling is needed if you prefer to turn it into another comfort room or bathroom since you need to install drainage system and pipes in the room. You may also need to construct additional walls and put more furniture to transform it completely.
