    4 Major Reasons to Rebuild Your Garage

    If your current garage does not meet your needs or if keeping it around is a hazard, it is time to consider rebuilding.

    Bad Bones

    You can renovate the look of your garage all you like…but at the end of the day, if the structural integrity is compromised, all you have is a disaster in disguise. If your garage is falling apart, you could have a serious hazard on your hands. Not only is it a risk to your safety every time you enter your garage, but all the contents of your deteriorating garage are at risk to. Protect yourself and your belongings with a fully rebuilt Brave Homes garage.

    Resale Value

    Rebuilding your garage is sure way to improve the marketability of your property. A sturdy, functional, and attractive garage enhances curb appeal and increases your home’s overall value.

    Mold and Mildew

    You walk into your garage and all you can smell is that familiar old and musty odour. This is not just the scent of old memories…it is an indicator of the presence of mold and mildew.  Aside from being an unpleasant experience for your nose, mold and mildew can pose a serious health risk to you and your family. The development of mold is also a strong indication that you have a water leak somewhere which can irreparably damage your garage. Eliminate the mold and start fresh with a rebuilt garage.

    Resizing

    Perhaps the garage you have now just simply is not big enough anymore… and you find yourself parking your car outside and making your way through the maze of boxes just to get inside your house. Rebuilding your garage means that you can redesign the floor plan and adjust the square footage so that everything has its own perfect spot – no more sacrificing your car to Calgary’s unpredictable weather just to fit a few more boxes in there.

    Important Questions to Ask

    Getting started on your garage project can feel a little bit overwhelming, but it does not have to. By answering these questions, Brave Homes will help you to refine your vision for your building project. 

    Is this a new build or a rebuild?

    The most obvious detail that needs to be determined is whether you are going to build a brand-new garage or rebuild in place of something that already exists.

    How much available space?

    It is essential to determine the square footage that is available for building as this will have major implications on the design options for your project. We will work with you to come up with a perfect floor plan that efficiently utilizes the space that you have.

    How do you plan to use it?

    Do you want to use your garage to simply park your vehicles? Will it be used as a workspace or developed into liveable space? Deciding how you want your garage space to be used is arguably one of the most important steps in the planning process.

    What is your style?

    From classic to modern, the Brave Homes team will build your garage to suit your style.

    What is your budget?

    There are many decisions that need to be made when picking construction and finishing materials for your garage. From the type of siding being used to the number of doors you want installed, Brave Homes garage packages can be customized to fit your budget, whatever it may be.

    Does my garage need a building permit?

    A garage or related structure requires a permit if any of these conditions apply:

    • It is greater than 10 m2 (107 sq. ft.).
    • It is attached to a house.
    • It is in the front yard.
    • It does not meet one of the rules for location or design.

    Back yard parking pads typically don’t require a permit, but if you would like to build a garage on top of the pad in the future, review the location, design and construction section to ensure placement will not be impacted. Professional engineering services are required for slabs over 55 m2 (592 sq. ft.).

    How close to the property line can I build my garage?

    In the city of Calgary, the garage may go up right on the property line if certain conditions are met:

    1. The property is not shared with the street
    2. The wall is fire rated with 5/8″ type x drywall from floor slab to underside of roof sheathing
    3. There is no eave overhang onto the adjacent lot (reverse Gable Construction required)
    4. There is no windows or doors on the property line side of the garage
    5. There are no neighboring sheds, garages within 2 ft’ of the property line
    What should I expect once the work is done?

    There are a few main points to know once the project is completed

    1. You will have a final walk-through with the Manager to ensure that all items are explained, questions are answered, and to sign off on scope of (?) completion.
    2. You will receive a Warranty Certificate indicating our warranty details and contact information.

    Benefits of Detached Garages

    While attached garages tend to be the most common option, detached garages offer several unique benefits that you might want to consider.

    Multi-functional space

    A detached garage is not limited in any way by the design constraints of your home. They can be developed to suit your needs. From storage space to workspace and more, a detached garage offers limitless possibilities in terms of adding useable, multi-functional space.

    Flexible garage location

    Obviously, an attached garage is a permanent fixture of your home. The location availability for an attached garage is limited and it also restricts your ability to use that prime real estate space for anything else other than your garage.  A large, attached garage can also overwhelm your home, making it look smaller. Detached garages, however, can be built anywhere on your property, keeping the space closest to your home available for other development options, such as the construction of an outdoor patio.

    Best suited option for hobbies or work

    Detached garages are the ideal option for those who plan to use the garage for more than vehicle storage. If you would like to utilize your garage as a work or office space, building a detached garage can help to keep your work and home life separate. Detached garages may also be safer, as well, if they are used for work or hobbies such as painting or woodworking. With a detached garage, chemicals and other hazards are kept separate from your home.

    Additional and attractive storage space

    You could always plop a sea-can in your back yard for storage, but a thoughtfully developed detached garage is far more functional and aesthetically pleasing. With one of Brave Homes’ beautiful and practical detached garages, you can use your garage for everything that garages were designed for and more!

    Increased home value

    A quality built and finished detached garage provides additional useable square footage for a variety of activities, which undoubtedly improves curb-appeal and increases market desirability.
