Garage Remodeling and Additions
Most homeowners agree it’s a convenience and a pleasure to have a garage. Whether it’s used for just parking the car or storage of sports equipment, a garage is a practical luxury with many benefits. For those of us who park our cars in a garage, escape from bad weather is one of the best benefits! And in the tight parking areas we’re familiar with here in Washington, DC, a garage guarantees you won’t have to spend time searching for a spot on the street.
Over the years, the Wentworth, Inc. design-build team has built—and converted—garages for many homeowners in the DC metropolitan area. Garage remodeling or addition projects have ranged from attached to detached garages and from two-car brick garages to simple one-car vinyl siding units. No matter the type of garage, construction requires zoning approvals and building permits, and all must be built on a proper masonry foundation with a concrete slab for parking.
Garage Remodeling: Carports
If you have an existing carport attached to your home and want to enclose it to make a proper garage, this can usually be done for a modest cost. If you already have a carport and wish for a brand new garage, Wentworth architects and designers can work with you to design one that makes sense for you and your home.
Garage Remodeling: Detached Garage
If you are interested in a detached garage, it can be designed and placed on the site to enhance the landscape and even create a well-defined outdoor space for a patio or garden. Linking the garage with fencing or garden walls creates an aesthetically pleasing landscape. A properly designed and built garage will fit in and enhance the overall look and feel of your home, but will still be functional and practical for everyday use.
Garage Remodeling: Attached Garage
An attached garage should be designed in a way that enhances the architecture of the home. If you are going to the expense of building a garage, you are typically better off going with a two-car garage to make it worth the time and effort. By utilizing an appropriate selection of building materials and a well-thought-out roofline, a new garage can become an architectural asset that enhances a home’s curb appeal.
Sometimes this type of remodeling can include a conversion of a rarely-used garage! If you want to expand space in your home, space reconfiguration like this can be a great alternative to building an addition or even moving. Wentworth can help with your garage remodel, transforming it into whatever you need—whether that’s a home office, extra kitchen space, or a living room.
