If you’re wanting to increase the interior space in your home, then converting your garage may be an excellent option. Giving up the space that you use to store your vehicles can add much needed and ample square footage to your home’s living areas. In comparison to adding an extension, a garage conversion is simple, stress-free, and inexpensive.
Unfortunately, if you intend to sell your home in the future, converting your garage can make your home less appealing to potential buyers and may reduce your sale price. Around three-quarters of buyers rate a garage as an important feature when they’re looking for a home. However, this doesn’t mean that you should forget the idea of converting your garage entirely. The key is to convert in such a way that it is easily restored to a garage space by yourself or a buyer when it’s time to sell.
One of the key elements to creating a versatile and easily reversed transformation is the garage door that you choose. It’s important to have a functional garage door in place instead of replacing it with a wall that will be costly to remove by you or your prospective buyer. Here are three important aspects that you should consider when purchasing and installing a new garage door for your conversion project.
