Planning your garage conversion has two stages:
1) creating a basic plan for the actual process of converting the garage in to living space (including the costs and financing options) plus
2) carefully considering the consequences of the renovation.
What kind of consequences? Most people are aware of the potential for the garage conversion to greatly improve the resale value of the home, although you may want some input from an expert once you learn more about the potential complications involved with city code compliance, unpermitted conversions, insurance coverage issues, and legal barriers to selling a home after an improper conversion. In other words, you want to maximize the value of the converted space plus know that the conversion is being done in a way that avoids stressful surprises in the future.

contractor through this site, you will have the comfort of knowing that you have an expert who is licensed and bonded. He can quickly give you a quick estimated price range in

Note that if you will be requesting a general estimate, sometimes it is sufficient for the renovation supervisor to simply see a picture of the existing garage plus ask a few simple questions, then the contractor can give you a broad price range. Of course, for a precise written bid including the specific materials that you select, a personal inspection of the site will need to be scheduled, plus the services of a designer or architect may be relevant.
