Benefits of Having a Garage

Protect Your Investment by Adding a Garage

For homeowners, you should protect your investment by adding a garage. Next to your home, a car is most likely your largest financial investment. For many, a car is the first large purchase they will make in their lifetime.  Why not add a layer of protection to your vehicle by adding a garage to your home. Randy J. Smith Construction & Roofing are experts when it comes to garage construction, and knows there are many benefits of having a garage.

Garages Increase Your Safety

It’s a no-brainer that parking your vehicles in a locked garage keeps them more secure. Your vehicle is out of sight out of mind of the average person. When parked in a garage, you don’t need to worry about someone trying the handle in the middle of the night. This helps prevent vehicle theft and theft of items inside your vehicle. You also get the added benefit of being safe in your garage when you arrive home late at night. It’s also great when you’re leaving early in the morning.

You Get Protection From the Weather

From snow to hail to UV rays of the sun, the weather can have a detrimental effect on your car or truck year-round. A garage will help shield your vehicle from the various elements. Doing this saves you money in repairs, and extends the life and look of your car.

Also, a garage protects you from the weather as well. You no longer have to fiddle with an umbrella as you walk out of the house, or worry about a gust of wind. With our harsh winters, wouldn’t it be great to avoid cleaning off the snow and ice before work every day?

Gain Accessibility and Convenience in a New Garage

When you have a garage, you always have a designated parking spot. It’s a courtesy to leave a spot in front of your neighbor’s home for them. But when people have guests over they may not follow that rule. A garage is a guaranteed spot for your vehicle every day.

Another convenience is when you have to load or unload your car or truck. Whether you’re dealing with kids, groceries, or other items, being closer to the house makes it easier and quicker. Also, for some items stored in the garage it’s convenient to just be able to leave them right there?

Your New Garage Increases Storage Space

You can never have too much storage. A garage not only is for storing your car, but many people use it for tools, car supplies, outdoor equipment. By using shelves and cabinets along the sides and back, you can easily fit all you need in there.

Garages Will Increase Your Home Value

While a garage is a high-cost addition to your home, they have a great ROI. According to Pocket Sense, most homeowners see about an 81% return on their investment (ROI). This depends on size, location, proximity to the house, and finishes. When you go to sell your home, a garage will help your home stand out. Not only will potential buyers be able to envision using it for vehicle safety, but also as added storage space.
