Garage Conversions and TLC Garage Works in Maryland

Do you want a bigger house without having to move? Do you want a bigger house without paying for an expensive home addition? Do you have a garage?

If you answered yes to all three of the above questions, we at TLC Garage Works have the answer you are looking for – a Garage Conversion. It is an economical way to give yourself the space you need while utilizing an under-appreciated part of the house, your garage.

Benefits of a Garage Conversion

  • Raise Home Value: Adding an extra living room, bedroom, office, etc. will help raise your property value.
  • Cost Effective: Converting your garage is far more cost-effective than an expensive home addition. All you need to do is add insulation, level the floor, address the garage door and maybe add heating/cooling.
  • Speed: Garage conversions are fast. As we just mentioned, almost everything is already in place.
  • Extra Income: Converting a garage into an extra bedroom to rent out can be a perfect source of additional income.

Instead of just letting your garage collect junk, turn it into something you really want/need.

Garage Conversion Process

The conversion process should begin with an assessment of the garage and its many facets.

  1. What do you do about the garage door? Possible options include installing a patio door or framing a new wall that includes a large window.
  2. Un-insulated and slanted. Those are the two biggest problems surrounding most cement garage floors. You may want to consider leveling the floor and covering it with a more suitable surface.
  3. Garages are not climate controlled. If your garage is connected to your home, you may be able to extend existing ductwork into your new space. If that is not possible, you should look into an independent heating system, gas space heater or woodstove for the winter and a room air conditioner for the summer. Add insulation to walls, floor and ceiling before deciding how to heat and cool the space.
  4. Is your current wiring enough? If you expect to substantially increase electrical usage in the converted space, consider adding at least one new 20-amp circuit.
  5. What is the toughest part of any garage conversion? Plumbing. While getting water supplied to the garage is easy, drainage present a much tougher challenge.
