Spruce Up Your Garage in Parker with Overhead Doors and More
There are many ways in which you can improve your garage, including the 6 we have listed below. These are our top suggestions for homeowners who would like to transform their garage into a more appealing and practical space.
Clean and Organize Your Garage
Before you can start making big changes, you first need to clear away any clutter and give your garage a deep clean. Starting with a clean slate is the easiest way to ensure that your garage improvement project is a complete success. If, like many people, you’ve accumulated a lot of clutter in your garage over the years, you’ll need to be a little ruthless when sorting it out. Things that you haven’t used in many years should be thrown away unless they are valuable, rather than hoarding them for the sake of it. You might also like to think about donating items that others may be able to use.
Consider Upgrading Your Garage Flooring
If you have a stained and dirty concrete floor in your garage, now would be an excellent time to do something about it. A good cleaning may help but if it still looks a bit shabby after you’ve finished, it’s worth thinking about installing a new epoxy floor or rubber tiling over the top of the concrete. Sealing the concrete with epoxy will not only make it look more attractive, it will make it much easier to keep clean in the future as well. The best time to do this is now, when you’ve taken out all the old junk and swept every corner of your garage clean.
New Garage Door Installation
If you already have an attractive, serviceable garage door, you can skip this step. If not, it’s well worth calling around to get some quotes for a replacement door from local contractors. The team at A Better Garage Door will, of course, be delighted to prepare a competitive quotation for you to consider. We have completed many overhead door installation jobs in Parker and the surrounding area, and would be more than happy to help you level up your garage with a beautiful new door. Overhead doors are a great choice as they provide easy access, good security and will enhance the appearance of your garage too. Modern overhead doors also provide better insulation, making it easier for you to keep your garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Invest in a New Garage Door Opener
Whether or not you need a new garage door, a remote garage door opener is a must-have for any home in Parker these days. Being able to open and close overhead doors without having to get out of your car makes life so much easier in all weathers. Upgrading old garage door openers that are no longer reliable is a possible option for some older doors but complete replacement may be the best choice in certain cases. If you’re not sure whether your existing door can easily be modified to accept a remote opening mechanism or whether the existing mechanism can be upgraded, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. A member of our team can come to your home, inspect your door and recommend the best course of action to take.
Upgrade Your Garage Lighting
If there’s one thing that can spoil the appearance of an otherwise modern garage, it’s poor lighting. If you’re going to install new flooring and a new garage door, make sure you don’t have a single bulb hanging from the ceiling as your only source of illumination. Energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures will brighten up your garage nicely, without any noticeable effect on your utility bills. You could even end up saving money on electricity if you’re currently relying on incandescent bulbs.
Get New Garage Shelving and Cabinets
The best way to ensure that your newly leveled-up garage doesn't end up looking like a mess in a few months' time is to increase the available storage space. Installing new shelving and cabinets on the walls will achieve this aim without taking up any additional floor space. For heavy items, you may need to buy some freestanding cabinets but if you make good use of the available wall space, you can make sure that you leave plenty of room for your vehicles.
