Just having a garage will ensure that your home is worth more than a property with just off-street parking but there are things you can do to ensure that you make the most of this space and achieve the best possible price when the time comes to move on.
Improving your garage can leave you with more money to spend on your next house move, and when you are looking to arrange a home buyers survey London RCIS surveyors Sam Conveyancing will be happy to help. They can be contacted on https://www.samconveyancing.co.uk/Homebuyers-Survey/home-buyers-survey-london when the time is right. In the meantime, here are some ways that you could change your garage for the better.
You don’t have to completely overhaul your garage if you don’t want to as there are some smaller projects that could add value. Simply installing a functional door that doesn’t take a weightlift or contortionist to open it can instantly give it a lift, for example. You should also think of the kerb appeal that a quality door that complements the property can add.
Vent and insulate
Vent and insulate attached garages to protect against extremes of temperate and to make sure carbon monoxide fumes don’t seep inside. Add weather stripping to the bottom of the door too to prevent unnecessary heat from escaping when the weather is cold.
Ensuring that your garage maximised the space on offer can help you each day and will also be a great selling point – and value maximiser – when it comes time for you to put your property on the market.

Light it up
Adequate lighting is an essential for any ‘good’ garage. Make sure that there is enough light to ensure that the space is truly usable whatever time of the day or night. Motion-sensor lighting can really be a worthwhile investment if your budget allows.
Don’t be floored
You may not worry too much about the appearance of your garage floor but it can make a difference to buyers who are wondering how much to offer for your home. Make sure every inch of your property looks spick and span by giving your garage floor an easy-to-clean epoxy finish.
