Improving your garage could increase the value of your home by £45,000

Getting new garage doors installed and increasing usable space in your garage could increase the value of your home by tens of thousands of pounds, according to a recent investigation.

Whether you’re a homeowner looking to sell your house soon or simply considering an upgrade to add value to your home, your garage should be one of your key considerations.

A recent study done by Admiral Loans entitled the “Great British Waste of Space” found that renovating a home’s garage can increase the value of a property by up to £45,000.

The investigation primarily focused on the space inside the garage. Researchers found that fewer than one in ten homeowners park their car in the garage overnight. This figure has decreased by 70 per cent since last year.

It found that the most common use for garages in the UK is to store tools: 64 per cent of homeowners said this is the main purpose of their garage.

However, by renovating your garage to create more usable space, the value of your property could increase significantly.

Roller garage doors are a great way to create more space in the garage. This style of garage door coils up neatly below the garage door opening, taking up very little space in the garage. These garage doors also provide insulation to keep your garage cool in summer and warm in winter, ensuring the space inside is suitable for use.

Homeowners can increase the value of their property by revamping their garage into a space for activities instead of storage or car parking space. Common modern uses of garages include children’s playrooms, gyms, hobby room, utility room and studios.

The study found that only 5 per cent of people who own garages have invested in converting their garage into a more appealing, usable space.
