There are two approaches to creating a garage or carport to suit your needs.
- Garage renovations or carport renovations On larger blocks, there is space for a shed out the back to house the kids’ bikes, the kayak, the lawnmower, and even the gym set for the energetic. But in modern homes, particularly in estates, storage is limited and that means that the only place for all that stuff is the garage. If the family has two cars this puts one of them out in the weather all day. A garage or carport renovation often happens in conjunction with a face-lift or makeover of the façade since the garage or carport is usually at the front and it makes sense to do them together. Sometimes it is as simple as a new roller door, but in other instances a renovation will enlarge the garage in whichever direction there is room to move and add storage solutions for all those essentials. Having an easily accessible place for everything makes things stress free and safe.
- Construction of a new garage or carport Many older homes do not have any type of garage or carport so we are engaged to build one. In some instances, an old garage or carport attached to the home is converted into a living space so we are required to build a new garage or carport in front of the new room. In other cases, a carport or garage was just never considered at the time the home was built and the new owners require protection for their vehicles and some storage space. In any case, the new garage or carport is designed to work in with the aesthetic of the current home and to blend seamlessly. It is important to provide shelter from the parking space into the home, this may require additional roofing areas which can either be designed to match the original home or can become a feature of its own.
