Who wouldn’t want more space in their garage? Most people want more storage for their home and maximize their garage area too. In the situation of your garage, you can add shelves and racks to the walls which will help to utilize the space better. However, extending it somehow would be ideal in creating more space.
While that may seem impossible, Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Phoenix, AZ has seen an extension happen via a roof replacement project.
Our company has been an available resource for our customer’s journey to raise and replace their garage’s roof in effort to create more space. What a great way to make the most of your garage.
Options to Raise a Garage Roof
While creating space through a roof replacement may seem like a big undertaking, there are several options to pull this off and make it work for your home. Either way you look at it, the project is involved but doable.
You could replace the roof and by doing so build upward and then put the new roof on top.
This option might be problematic, but it is possible if you have the right contractor involved. You could have them try to raise the building itself in order to create the desired space.
The most simplistic option is probably to use hydraulic lifts in order to raise your garage’s roof. You will want to brace the inside of the garage before you attempt to make the lift happen. If your roof appears to be unstable, then add some support for safety reasons.
Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Phoenix, Arizona encourages you to hire a professional for a project such as this, regardless of the option that you choose. We are here to help and walk you through the potential steps.
Worth it or Not?
Before you decide on whether this is the best option for you or not, you’ll want to make a list of all the pros and cons to such a large project. Consider whether all the effort is worth your time.
The hours you put into the project are one thing but remember to weigh out the expense of such a job. What are you planning to store in this new, larger space? Is it cheaper to get a monthly storage unit? You’ll have to decide that but you may want to go a different route if it’s easier and cheaper to do so.
Do Your Homework
One thing is for sure, you won’t lose anything by asking for quotes and pricing. In fact, you may find that it is easier to make a solid decision for your garage’s roof if you know exactly all that is involved from a time and cost perspective. Research and check references for companies that you are considering hiring in advance. Get at least 3 quotes for comparison reasons and then make your choice wisely.
Goal for Your New Space
If you decide to try one of the above options, then you’ll want to make a plan for how you’ll use this new space. Once the work is complete you’ll have endless opportunities online to search for ideas on how to both decorate and utilize your new space. There are many DIY projects out there and your new space will be a great way to try a few out.
