There are multiple reasons for a carport to garage door conversion.
A functioning garage door in an enclosed garage is vital to keeping your stuff secure at your home. Garages house many expensive and valuable possessions, and an enclosed garage will help keep them safe. A carport exposes your valuables and can make you feel exposed and vulnerable. People passing by your home can easily view your possessions and even consider it as an invitation to enter uninvited. According to Safe at Last, there are 2.5 million burglaries per year, 66% of which are home break-ins. A theft happens every 13 seconds. 65% of burglars know their victims. According to the FBI, the average loss per burglary is $2,416.
An enclosed garage is valuable for storing larger items in your home. Bikes, lawnmowers, power tools, yard tools, recreational items, and large collectibles are all items that are stored well in an enclosed garage. There are many organizational tools to help you keep the items accessible, organized, and secure. Why pay for monthly storage units to store your stuff when you could be using your enclosed garage to organize and keep your items secure?
Added Weather Protection
If you have a carport that exposes your car to the environmental elements, you know how nice it would be to have added protection from the weather. This spring’s pollen levels were very high. Everything was coated in yellow, and a carport does not fully protect your car from the nasty pollen that arrives uninvited year-after-year. Pollen damages your paint job, gets in every nook and cranny of your carport, and is tracked into your home for further spreading of the yellow dust into your living space! In addition, an enclosed garage will help keep your garage warm in the winter.
Added Living Space
Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to extend harsh seasons such as summer and winter by adding living space to your home with a carport to garage conversion? Carports to garage conversions do not always have to be used for storing your car. You can create a space that is ideal for entertaining and family time. If you think this is what you want your garage to be used for, you’ll need to consider possibly adding a window or two for added natural light. When thinking about the addition of windows, you’ll need to consider privacy as well.
Added Home Value
According to Forbes, the housing market in 2019 will be characterized by continued rising mortgage rates and surging millennial demand. Additionally, they predict that prospects for housing are good because demographics are going to support demand, and a slowdown in 2019 creates a healthier housing market going forward. A carport to garage conversion will help maintain and even boost the value of your home.
