HOW TO PREPARE FOR GARAGE RENOVATION

If you rent or lease equipment, you pay for the equipment rental only when you need it. It is doubly hard if you decide to renovate the space all by yourself without taking professional help. Not everyone is capable of undertaking a DIY home renovation project. However, if you want to start the renovation process all on your own, it is better to deal with one room at a time. For example, you can start with a bedroom or a bathroom and see how the process goes. Continue reading this article to learn valuable tips on garage renovation.

Remove The Items: At times, the garage becomes your storeroom and the tool shed of the house. Anything and everything is dumped in the garage and soon forgotten. Every garage typically has boxes stacked in the corner with god knows what inside them. If you want to start a garage renovation, you need to get rid of the junk and empty the room.

  • Have a garage sale and make a profit by selling things you no longer need. This will help you get rid of unnecessary items while making money. You don’t want important things to get lost or stolen; therefore, be sure to separate the items you prefer not to sell.
  • After the sale, you can donate the stuff you don’t need or decide to throw them away. The goal is to let go of things that don’t hold any value to your life.
  • At times, the garage walls hold many equipment and items that hang on the wall. Be sure to remove them as well before you start the renovation process.

Start With The Walls: The renovation process should be done from top to bottom. Therefore, at first, pay attention to the ceiling and the room’s walls. You may find out that the walls require plastering work. You may hire an expert professional to take care of the plastering work. Or you can mix cement, sand, and water and start applying the mixture to the cracks. However, take your time accessing the cracks to avoid further damage.

The Floors: The floors are the worst sufferers when it comes to the garage space. People put heavy machinery in the garage for years, which ultimately damaged the floor. The cars, the oils, and so much more practically destroy the floor on which one can see numerous cracks. And if it is a cement floor, the numbers of cracks are even higher. So, you must have a strategical approach when dealing with the garage floors. Many people these days opt for floor epoxy because it gives the floor a glamorous shine like no other. Before applying the epoxy solution to the floor, be sure the walls are fully renovated, as you don’t want raw cement to drop on the newly done epoxy floors. Use at least two coats of epoxy to get the shine.

Garage Door: Most break-ins in America happen through the garage. It is incredibly easy to tamper with the garage door. Therefore, ensure you have a security system installed that prevents break-ins from the garage. You also want to choose a better material for the garage door. Some door materials fail to reflect the sunlight, absorbing the same and making the interiors hot. You don’t want the car to sit at a hot temperature for long. Therefore, pick a sturdy material that reflects sunlight to the outside.
