On carefully considering whether or not to convert your garage to a room

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 before you begin. Why? 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.

When you contact a contractor in San Antonio through this site, you will have the comfort of knowing that you have an expert who can quickly give you a quick estimated price range plus help you organize every detail of the planning and construction. 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. In summary, our contractors can help you recognize what you need and then manage the whole process for you.

Need a full garage conversion
or just a partial garage remodel?

With a garage remodel (or partial garage conversion), you can have a huge increase in functionality (and natural light) without removing the ABILITY to open the garage to the driveway. We can replace standard garage doors so that you have window panels or even a wall that is entirely windows. If relevant, we will suggest adding extra insulation (to make the room easier to cool or heat). To see a gallery of partial conversions, click the image on the right (and then scroll down the page that opens).

Or, a full garage conversion (removing the garage doors and building a full wall there) may be best for you. Because city codes do change, including their policies for exemptions, the best option is to contact us so we can review the current specifics for your city.

We are not intimidated by these details because we constantly refer to the various regulations of all the local cities for permit applications, building codes, and inspection requirements. Let us guide you through the process smoothly!
